DRIVE - Strawpeople - Top 40 Singles

New Zealand Artist: Strawpeople

Life for the Strawpeople began at the university radio station now known as 95bFM. Paul Casserly and Mark Tierney met there in 1985 when both had foregone the golden path to Academia for the small and damp corridors of student radio. Tierney was the studio engineer at the time, Casserly an aspiring DJ.

Various 'experimental' recordings followed - a cut up of a cassette Casserly had stolen from his mother, 'The Pope's In Ireland', resulted in 'Something Else Is Needed'. "She took it back when she’d heard what we’d done" remembers Casserly.
