The Stragglers

The Stragglers


A wide range of sounds from bluesy punk to melodic funk. Always a release of pent up emotion filtered through beautiful distortion.


Formed in April 2005, The Straggers have been working their asses off in the basement of 71 South May Ave between shows in Athens. There's unlimited potential here just waiting to be released.


A slew of tunes recorded at home on a four track tape recorder and a digital eight track, but nothing properly released. Currently in the middle of recording a demo album in the basement.

We have about 18 originals, but new songs are coming together every day. We do a range of covers including "Possum Kingdom" by the Toadies, "Where is my Mind" by the Pixies, and "Cherub Rock" by Smashing Pumpkins". Also, we do a pretty kick ass rendition of "Psycho Killer" by the Talking Heads.
