shorty - the discography



you know shorty

you love shorty

but what is shorty?

well...it all began in illinois back in 1986 after vocalist al johnson (then in a band called nursery) and guitarist mark shippy (then in a band called the muckrakers) were introduced to one another

then in 1988 they put an ad in the local newspaper looking for other musicians...and after a succession of names...they released 2 7" under the name snailboy

then in 1991...the band's original bass player left the band...and they then took in bassist luke frantom (who had also worked with al johnson in nursery)

and then came shorty

and before splitting up in 1994...they released 1 full length...an ep...and 3 7"

and then al johnson and mark shippy went onto for the band u.s. maple

but that's another story for another time

grampa's tired

go outside and play

but stay away from the shed

STAY AWAY FROM THE SHED!

i just wanted to say that this band, in my opinion, is the weird al version of the jesus lizard. in fact, i think i like these guys more than the jesus lizard. not trying to be deliberately provocative, just fancy the guitar work in this much more. thanks for the post, guys.
