(1) Punk-rock band with a sound recalling the Minutemen, Newtown Neurotics, Stiff Little Fingers, Red London, Angelic Upstarts and The Clash, STRAWMAN were a socialist inspired punk band from the Mission District of San Francisco, California, active from 1990 to 1995. Led by Tommy Strange (Tom Seiler) on rhythm guitar, a San Francisco transplant from Sandusky, Ohio, and Jimmy Broustis (from Chicago, former guitarist of X-tal) on lead guitar, Strawman hosted a variety of Bay Area drummers and bassists. Early recordings featured the rhythm section of the Bedlam Rovers, while later incarnations consisted of drummers Aaron Cometbus (from Crimpshrine, Pinhead Gunpowder et al.), Adam Pfahler (from Jawbreaker), Diane Glaub (from Ohio) and bassists Rich McClain and Chandan Narayan (from the east bay, currently a linguistics professor at the University of Toronto). Strawman played shows across California and the West Coast with the likes of fellow Mission-district acts J Church and Jawbreaker. Strawman (Strange, Broustis, Narayan, and Glaub) toured western Europe in 1994 and released 7”s, LPs and CDs on Allied Recordings. Following Strawman, Strange formed Songs for Emma (1998-2003), and now performs solo.

(2) Strawman, the rock band: An alternative rock / grunge band, whose music, according to their website (, “falls somewhere between ass-shaking-bump-n-grind, neck-fracturing-Beavis-rock, and foot-stompin-ditties.”

    Demo isn't by Strawman (the punk band). It's by an unsigned artist Blayne R. Brown, who also goes by name of Strawman . Check out
