Debuting in 1991 like a three-piece support work for the Frogs, Strapping Fieldhands produced several waves among the more charming — albeit ramshackle — rings in indie-rock’s decidedly ragged lo-fi motion. The band, made up of Bob Malloy, Bob Dickie, Jacy Webster, Sky Kishlo and Jeff Werner, gigged around Philadelphia and documented their debut EP, The Demiurge, in 1991 for Siltbreeze Information. Many singles for the label adopted, and Strapping Fieldhands released their 1st recording, Discus, in 1993. The group performed round the East and adopted up with two ten-inch EPs released during 1994, In the Pineys as well as the Caul. The band’s second LP, Wattle & Daub, premiered by Shangri-La in 1996. Siltbreeze later on mixed Strapping Fieldhands’ seven-inch result within the compilation Gobs within the Midway.
