Strawpeople were formed at 95bFM by Mark Tierney and Paul Casserly in 1990, primarily as a studio band with featured vocalists.

Signed to Pagan Records, their first single 'One Good Reason', a cover of the old Swingers hit, was released the same year but failed to chart. It was followed shortly afterwards by an album Hemisphere.
