Band of Susans is a rock music band formed in New York in 1986 by Robert Poss (guitar/vocals), Susan Stenger (bass/vocals) and Ron Spitzer (drums) with Susan Lyall (guitar), Susan Tallman (guitar) and Alva Rogers (vocals).
Let us now praise Band of Susans. erent kind of guitar band. On Veil, their fifth album, Band of Susans deliver the songs as well as the sound. Tunes like "Mood Swing," "Not in This Life," "Trouble Spot" and the sublime "Blind" unfurl sharp, bold melodies over stick-in-your-head ensemble riffs. Ron Spitzer's drums kick and snap, and Stenger's bass lines provide melodic as well as rhythmic backbone.

In 1988, Band of Susans released their first full-length album, Hope Against Hope; both Tallman and Lyall departed soon after, and were replaced by Page Hamilton (a former student of Glenn Branca, a frequent Susans reference point) and Karen Haglof.
Love Agenda" was their second album, and is now best-known for featuring future Helmet frontman Page Hamilton on guitar. Nonetheless, his work is overshadowed by Poss and Stenger. Poss' loud, punkish falsetto contrasts remarkably with Stenger's gentle, throaty contralto, but they both work very well. Even if Band of Susans might loosely be playing hard rock or even "hardcore", they never become at all pompous, overblown or tuneless as traditional exponents of these genres do. Stenger's vocal efforts on "Birthmark" and "Hard Light" are, in contrast, touchingly beautiful but the music is still loud and does not let itself burn out. The slow-burn of these songs is very much "post-rock" and rivals Spiderland. For all "Love Agenda"'s impressive accomplishment, Band of Susans were never going to find a large audience.
