Formed in 1998, Songs for Emma includes Tommy Strange and Diane Glaub from Strawman (San Francisco). They added Mike Millett on lead guitar and younger guy Raum Palacios on bass duty. The band is named after Emma Goldman (June 27, 1869 – May 14, 1940) who was an anarchist known for her political activism, writing and speeches. More melody and less crash and spittle than their previous band, Songs for Emma still have the same biting social commentary with exciting, interesting music that challenges today’s punk/indie status quo. The band tends to wear red and black, and calls themselves workers, not musicians, though the music is solid cutting Kevin Army produced rocknroll. Songs for Emma disbanded in September 2003.
