Rapeman was a Steve Albini led band between Big Black and Shellac. Existing between 1987 and 1989 they only had a few releases and are not as well know as Albini’s other projects. The band featured David WM. Sims of Scratch Acid (who later went to reunite with Scratch Acid Vocalist David Yow to form the spectacular Jesus Lizard) and Rey Washman also of Scratch Acid and Big Boys.

They played a form of aggressive noise rock that we see later on in Shellac  and abrasive art-punk.
