The Three Terrors were an infrequent live covers act starring Stephin Merritt, LD Beghtol and Dudley Klute. Each show was a extravagant affair based around a theme. I think the three terrors stopped playing live a long time ago so I’d given up hope of ever hearing them. However, thanks to the internet (youtube and ageing spinster) I finally got to hear one of their shows.
The old dope peddler is a Tom Lehrer song from the show Drink, Drugs and Delirium, at the Bowery in 2003. Enjoy.
