Artist discography


Shrub has always aimed at trying to give the listener a natural high through their music. However, with Highceratops the high just didn't last very long for my ears. 

Cutting straight to the point 'Go Run' and 'Fast Lane' are the highlights.

'Go Run' begins the record nicely with a go get'em attitude. Its a song to play to let all your people know that fun times are just around the corner.

'Fast Lane' is my favorite track because it gives off a mellow yet rebellious "I don't give a dame!" good time vibe. When I saw Shrub live for the first time several years ago at SXSW in Austin Texas they performed this song and I loved it. I found myself swaying along all the way through.

Overall I felt as the record progressed it lost momentum and just didn't grab much of my attention after those tracks listed above.

Did you know that?

The name "Minus the Bear" comes from an in-joke among the band members, referring to the 70´s television program, B. J. and the Bear. "A friend of the band had gone on a date,” explains singer-guitarist Jake Snider, "and one of us asked him afterwards how the date went. Our friend said, ´You know that TV show from the ´70s B.J. and The Bear? It was like that... minus The Bear.´ That’s the straight truth."
