One of the better, but overlooked groups of the grunge era, Lawrence, KS's 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 had dropped off the face of the earth as well. However, Paw
resurfaced in 2000 with original members Mark Hennessy
and Grant Fitch
and new recruits Jesse Larson and Jason Magierowski. Their third album, Home Is a Strange Place
, was released in mid-2000 by Koch Records.
