Travis on Crazy Jay's "Rocking Radio Show"
(This was recorded before MCSBL died; that's why there's no mention of it
on the show. In case anyone was wondering.)
Watch for MP3's of
"Twisted Tortured Nightmare," "Have Some Self-esteem, You Pig,"
and "Tool of the Man." These are the three newest songs
which aren't on any albums. It won't happen any time soon, but keep
watching anyway, just in case!
Update on this...I have the MP3's of these songs!
Now all I need is Travis' permission to post them.
Further update, they are available online now! See later news item.
Mr. Shredd's hunk goes from about
110 minutes to 149 minutes.
Also, check out "Weird
Al's" song "Virus Alert" at about 103 minutes.

already know that the title track from "Nashville Drive-By" is

No, the new T-shirts will not be ready. There have
been some complications. The design is too complex, or something,
and the T-shirt guy says they won't work on black! We haven't
decided what to do, yet.
New Show! Friday, May 4, 2001, at the Rain
Dancer. That's at

and click the News link for more info about the new guy.)
Read about it. February 6, 2001, at Graceland.
109 Eastlake Ave. E., Seattle. You may remember Graceland as the
former Offramp. (It's near the big REI with the climbing rock that's
right next to the highway.) It has a large stage and good
food. And a Tron video game. Anyone remember those?
Start time: 11:30 p.m. Opening bands: Fingered and San Pedro's
The First Shredd Show of the New Millennium was
Thursday, January 4, 2001, this time back at the Rainbow. Click here

Great news for all you Australian web fans! If
you are anywhere near Melbourne, you can soon catch us on the air on 94.9
FM, Nu Country! A copy of Nashville Drive-By is on its way to Tom
Tully as you read this!
Some more news will be coming soon, I'm sure. Ok,
here's something: Mr. Shredd is working on some new songs!
The guys played at the Rainbow again. JULY

At last, (or, in the words of the Fearless Leader,
"Finally!") the long, dry spell is over! The waiting and
wondering are at an end! "When is the band going to play
again?" you ask. JUNE 1ST AT THE RAINBOW
Bar & Grill.
That's in the U District at 722 N.E. 45th St. in Seattle.
Yes, that's right, that's a Thursday. So arrange
to take Friday off or at least go in late. If you can't arrange
that, then make sure you get lot's of sleep the night before, because you
are going to be headbangin' on Thursday night!
The opening band (if there is one) should start around
10 p.m. The Shredd band should go on around 11 p.m.
I hope to see you all there!
Ok, so this isn't official band news, but...Val, the Jiggy Whippet,
F. Ch., the band mascot, who faithfully hung around
the studio while NDB was being created, has now earned her Field Champion
lure coursing title!
Mr. Shredd will be doing an on-air radio interview with KDGS in
Wichita. So all you Wichita fans, stay tuned!
Dr. Demento comes through again!
On the 22nd of January, Dr. D's traveling road show was
in Seattle. He did an interview on NPR on 1/21/00 and plugged Travis Shredd and
the Good Ol' Homeboys!
On the weekend of January 7, 2000, Dr. D played
"Nashville Drive-By." It was the second song in the line
First 4 songs for that week:
Happy Boy - The Beat Farmers
Nashville Drive-By - Travis Shredd
The Spelling Song - Red Peters
The Wrong Song - Scott Katz
On the weekend of February 4, 2000, he did it
again! "Nashville Drive-By" was the second song played!
First 4 songs for that week:
Happy Birthday (Placebo version) - "Weird Al"
Nashville Drive-By - Travis Shredd
Eraserhead - Bruce McCulloch
We Love Barney Fife - Guns N' Moses
If you are lucky enough to be in an area where you can
get Dr. Demento's show on your radio, or can get a link to a radio station
online who webcasts, then tune in in the future to see if he plays it
The way Dr. D's show works is that he picks the songs
to play. Then he will play the songs again if listeners request
them. So...if you want to hear Travis Shredd on the Dr. D show
again, call, e-mail, snail mail Dr. D and tell him how much you enjoyed
hearing your favorite artist on his show!
