The Unmistakeable Sound of Independence since 1978 | Call to order: +44 (0)20 8996 3120
“Dragline”, the debut album from Kansas hard rockers PAW, is something of a lost, grunge-era classic. The band, comprising of brothers Grant Fitch on guitar and Peter Fitch on drums, Mark Hennessy on vocals and Charles Bryan on bass, originally formed in 1990.
With their demos creating a bidding war among the major labels, they eventually signed to A&M, then home to grunge and hard rock peers Soundgarden and Monster Magnet, with their major label debut issued in 1993.
Tours with Tool, Raging Slab and label-mates Monster Magnet ensued, leading to an appearance at the 1994 Reading Rock Festival. Their profile was further raised Stateside with videos clips on MTV for the singles ‘Sleeping Bag’, ‘Couldn’t Know’ and their most well-known song, ‘Jessie’.
This expanded edition now features 5 rare and hard to find non-album bonus tracks, including an acoustic version of ‘Jessie’. The booklet also includes extensive liner notes from Classic Rock and Metal Hammer’s Malcolm Dome based on recent interviews commissioned for this release with singer Mark Hennessy and guitarist Grant Fitch, as well as producer Doug Olson.
