Stratagem / Bio

Stratagem started when some dude was like, "Hey dude, you wanna play with me?" (Or posted an homo-erotic ad on Craigslist, or something, no one truly knows) And then those dudes hit up another dude (with whom one of the dudes had previously played) and said, "Dude, you wanna jam too?" Dude said "Sure." They hit up another dude THEY had previously played with and said, "Dude... dude?" Then wrote a couple tunes, which culminated with one of the dudes to hit up the last dude and was like, "Dude... Creme Fraiche!" And the last dude was like, "Oh fuck yeah, creme fraiche." Then that one dude that was previously mentioned, got broke and had to leave the other dudes. The dudes looked for an awesome musician to replace him and failed. So that one dude switched instruments and the search began for another dude to replace him. They found another dude who could "handle it", well. Then some time later, that one other dude decided he was done with the band and wanted to pursue his dream of being a professional sock model. Slightly bummed, but ready to do whatever it took to process the pasteurized cheese food, the remaining dudes bribed that one dude with re-launched Twinkies to re-join the band! And then he quit again... metal sucks!!! Keep your bananas peeled, 'cause there's some sick stew-a-boilin'!!! The fairy tale begins anew...
