"Idem"
Year:  1992
Country:  US
City:  San Francisco
Label:  Allied

Tracks:  16
Time:  47 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Punk  Rock































One of the most unknown bands from the San Francisco scene could be STRAWMAN. And is a total injustice, because they were really a sensational band with former ex-members of Jawbreaker and influences of punk rock convoluted, complicated and original (not "experimental") reminiscent Minutemen. Ideologically it is clear the influence of Leon Trotsky, Rose Luxembourg, Leon Gramsci or musicians like The Clash and other bands of the same style such as: Red London, Angelic Upstarts, The Ruts, Newtown Neurotics, etc. If you think no longer exists original and fresh punk rock, listen to these californians and judge yourself.

Staying with "Allied Recordings" and in the Bay Area, here is the almost complete discography of early 90s political punkers STRAWMAN.  Led by Tommy Strange, previously of mid-west hardcore band ZERO DEFEX, STRAWMAN played red-influenced rockin' punk in the vein of Stiff Little Fingers or The Clash.  They issued a self-titled Lp and several Eps before calling it quits... Tommy Strange went on to form SONGS FOR EMMA and continue on in the same vein while Jimmy Broustis moved on to found S.F. staple Shotwell Coho (later just SHOTWELL).
