Saidiwas

Real Name:
Saidiwas
Profile:
Anarchist vegan straight edge band from Umeå in northern Sweden. They got alot of attention because of their political lyrics, and maybe also because of their drummer who used to play naked.

In 1996 their first selftitled MCD was released on Desperate Fight Records, and was followed up by a tour through Sweden as support act for Refused. In August same year they played on the Vort 'n Vis festival in Belgium, and made a big impression on the Belgian kids by refusing to play for a violent crowd.

After that, they kicked their singer, because (according to the rumors) he dropped sXe/veganism. Their former drummer switched to vocals, which left the band without a drummer for the recording of their debut-fullength, «All Punk Cons», which was released in April -97, also on Desperate Fight Records. This album have a totaly different sound than their first release. Their new music style is a bit hard to describe, it is a mixture of punk, hardcore and soul.

They are also represented on the Desperate Fight Records compilation called "Straight Edge As Fuck III", with the song "Airlines". The song is a bit disco inspired.
