Four piece band from Lawrence, Kansas, USA. Released 'Dragline' in 1993, and 'Death To Traitors' in 1995. Was dropped by A&M, and followed up by small label eps.
Initially dubbed 'Grunge' when they first appeared - they eschewed all the elements that came with the moniker, in favour of incredible lyrical content and strong music composition. They were anything but 'Grunge'
Singer Mark Hennesey had a deep, gargled glass voice, often unfairly compared to Eddie Vedder - his lyrics told a story, and were the strongest points of the band - he now teaches poetry in Lawrence, and it's fair to say he is good at his job if his input in Paw is anything to go by.
Guitarist Grant Fitch's guitar was vaguely reminiscant of southern rock in the vein of Allman Brother, Govt Mule, but only as a reference. Heartfelt and beautiful. Now works in a guitarshop in Lawrence.
Drummer Peter Fitch, brother of Grant, had a John Bonham about him. He never dropped out of rhythm, and kept it going along.
The band had various bassists, Charles Bryan featured on the first album, but left the band and had a song and album title dedicated to him (Death To Traitors). Followed by Jason Megarowski.

If only this band hit the big time, they deserved it. But I'm glad they didn't as they are an extremely special band. They also liked their beer, which is always a good thing about a rock band.
Paw were only partly ignored because the press dubbed them 'Grunge', and everyone was sick of Grunge. They weren't.

The past tense of "pee" meaning to urinate, piddle, whiz, or piss. Similar to the past tense of "see" being "saw", and "peed" being an improper way to change to the past tense.

Pussy Ass Wimp.
A PAW is a man who has no backbone and doesn't stand up to people. He lacks the abilty to deal with confrontation and difficult situations. He backs down when things get heated, especially at home or work.
