    Default Paw

    PAW

    One of the overlooked groups of the grunge movement. Paw made a name for themselves with aggressive yet melodic albums like 1993's Dragline and 1995's Death to Traitors. Lackluster sales caused their label, A&M, to drop them, and it seemed like the group was finished.
    However, Paw resurfaced in 2000 with original members Mark Hennessy and Grant Fitch and new recruits Jesse Larson and Jason Magierowski. Home Is a Strange Place, their third album, was released in mid-2000 by Koch Records.

    Very good band I remember hearing them for the first time in Road Rash for the computer. Very sad they never became big. Good band to check out especially if you are a grunge fan.

    Thanks for this, I've never listened to Paw before... From what I've heard so far they have a really good sound. Nice riffs and everything...

    I really never understood why these guys never caught on and become huge. They are one of the better bands out there and it's actually a bit shocking how they didn't really make it anywhere.

    Thank you for reading my exact thought. Not only Paw but the other small bands that didn't catch on the recognition train either. It deeply saddens me, the kind of bands with a great amount of potential to be something big but quietly die down while in the shadows of the others that did get a chance. A comfort for me is to look at it as we still have those 3 albums. You can't help but think while listening to those albums damn, why didn't they make it? It's an unavoidable rush that hits you every time.


    One if not my favorite song of Paw's.

    After listening to these songs... im downloading their discography now. Umm i mean im acquiring their CD's in a very legal fashion.
    I think i'd heard of them years ago.. the name rings a bell, just never heard any of their stuff i guess.

    Thanks Mud.

    I like these guys too. One word for you SMB, Amazon. I actually have been buying used CD's to replace missing albums in my artists discographies. You know downloading doesn't work for me.

    Anyway, Paw is on my list to pick up.

    Pretty cool what new things you can discover just by typing in Alice In Chains on Last.fm.

    Listening to Paw's song "One More Bottle" right now. Pretty awesome.
