Bag Raiders are an Australian electronic band founded in 2006 by mainstays Jack Glass and Chris Stracey.
The band are classically trained musicians, who met in the Cranbrook School orchestra practice room with Glass a year ahead playing piano and cello, and Stracey playing violin, guitar and clarinet. In 2005, the pair reconnected and started mixing hip-hop and 1970s rock music CDs. As Bag Raiders their musical inspirations include Earth, Wind & Fire, The Brothers Johnson, 808 State and Orbital.
On 15 August 2007 Bag Raiders issued their second EP, Fun Punch on Bang Gang 12 Inches and Modular Records.
