THE GERMAN ART STUDENTS
THE GERMAN ART STUDENTS
Genre: Quirky power pop

Hometown: Madison, WI

About:
Nimble-witted new wave pop and junky keyboard licks since 1997.

Biography:
The German Art Students are a 3 or 4 piece rock and roll band from Madison, WI. GAS plays hooky guitar pop, a bit rough around the edges--well crafted but not slick. Influences range from garage to punk, through new wave and indie rock.

DIY or NOT DIY: You Decide
"This is a great DIY release. Very minimalist pop-injected songs predominate with demented and twisted lyrics. 'Civil War Re-enactor' had me wiggling on the floor to the power pop deliciousness and gut-bustingly ridiculous lyrics."
-Greg Sahagian, The Big Takeover

"A friend of mine tried to argue that they weren't DIY because they’d obviously practiced. This is the attitude that makes indie rock suck so hard. Their technical performance was flawless. Adding to the musical mastery was a line from 'Civil War Re-enactor' -- You drink the whiskey / I’ll cut your leg off.”
-Saara Myrene Raapana, www.actionmanmagazine.com
