Much like the parade of New Wave bands that spread equal amounts of pop and snot across the late 70’s music scene, the local quartet hold nothing sacred. Civil War reenactments, self-righteous lefty artists, twee baroque-rock bands: They sneer at ‘em all.
-Tom Laskin, Isthmus

Very minimalist pop-injected songs predominate with demented and twisted lyrics...power pop deliciousness and gut bustingly ridiculous lyrics.
-Greg Sahagian, The Big Takeover #53

The Onion

The German Art Students’ members tend to be busy having kids and doing other grown-up stuff, so excuse the local group if they’ve only had time to record two songs recently. Sometimes, The Gas’ subject matter (from “Bjorn Borg” to “Disgruntled Figure Skating Judge”) is the most immediately noticeable thing about their music, but who cares what the hell “Pompeii” is about? This hyper pop tune is bright, joyful, and in parts, stupefyingly catchy. The lyrics are a bigger part of the fun on “Reginald On The High Bike.” (“Back when a man was a man/ recumbent wasn’t an option/ brakes weren’t part of the plan”). Both are available on the new 7-inch 79 AD.
