The Strawmen

The Strawmen are an independent band from Sacramento, California, featuring guitarist David Leonhardt[?], bassist Mark Harmon[?] and Bill Harmon[?].

The Strawment recorded an independent self titled album, and went on to be "absorbed" by The 77s. Sevens lead singer Mike Roe and drummer Aaron Smith were looking for a new guitarist and bassist for the band and turned to David Leonhardt and Mark Harmon. Although The Strawmen never played a live concert, the indie release sheds a great deal of light on the musical metamorphosis that changed The 77s from a slick but edgy euro-flavored mod-rock band into whatever they are now.

Many of the songs originally recorded by the Strawmen went on to be rerecorded on 77s albums.
