Artist: GERMAN SHEPHERDS
Title: Music for Sick Queers
Format: LP + 7"
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Formed by STEPHEN SCHEATZLE and SANDY STARK (aka MARK HUTCHINSON), GERMAN SHEPHERDS grew out of San Franciscos art-punk scene in the early 80s. Their first single, "I Adore You," is a lost minimal synth nugget with an unforgettable rhythm box pattern, and their second, "THC," showcases Starks menacing and child-like vocals. Music for Sick Queers (originally released in 1985) brings together these and more beautifully disturbing songs with electronic noise reminiscent of Allen Ravenstine (Pere Ubu) and the best of The Residents, Suicide and Psychic TV. While more tracks would appear on compilations, such as Mykel Boards infamous The "Youll Hate This Record" Record, German Shepherds themselves virtually disappeared as their self-released album went out-of-print for decades. After years of searching the catacombs, Superior Viaduct finally caught up with only surviving member, Stark, and uncovered the bands secret history growing up in Ohio. This first-time reissue comes from the original master tapes and features a special bonus 7-inch containing previously unreleased material plus archival inserts and a digital download card." -Superior Viaduct.
