Straw Bear - Ian Ray (Lead Vocals, Guitars), Christopher Gray (Lead Guitar, Keys, Vocals), Tom Shipp (Guitars, Bass, Keys), Pas Struthers (Drums, Percussion ,Vocals), Catie Wicks (Bass, Vocals, Guitars)

Straw Bear formed slowly over a number of years, like sedimentary rock or a bad habit.

They took their name from the Whittlesey Straw Bear festival, the first event in the pagan calendar (available at all good newsagents).
