ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The indie-rock darlings that are The German Art Students bring a bouncy rough edged energy to their album Kissing by the Superconductor. Their sound is a mix of early Belly and the Lemonheads with pop guitar infecting this album from the storytelling of \"Steve Vai Boyfriend\" to the chaos of \"News Nugget\" with the songs touched by enough distortion to give it that garage dirty feel. \"Jenny Flex\" brings together influencing aspects of The B52\'s and surf guitar of Dick Dale and the Deltones period Southern California beach sound. You can tell they had fun making this collection of lighthearted tunes and that feel transfers to the listener. Rating: B-.
-Mark A. Lawrence the IV, www.inmusicwetrust.com

Tired of egotistical “rock stars”? Sick of pompous posturing…? Well my intolerant friend, you ought to spend more time with the German Art Students.
-Al Ritchie, Isthmus

Loose, fresh and funny!
Stumbled on the GAS website by accident, liked the sample MP3's and wound up ordering the CD. I'm a veteran of a 60's garage band and unlike my contemporaries I like to hear thoughtful songwriting that' s not steeped in da blues. I liked the irreverance/humor of their material. Standout cuts were Civil War Reenactor, Hear It, Steve Vai Boyfriend and Shitty Directions. I've read the compairisons (Talking Heads, Jonathan Richman, Pixies etc.) but what also came to mind were the Young Fresh Fellows. Loose, fresh, funny! Wish I had teachers back then that were this cool.

GAS does it again!
Great follow-up to their first CD! Vocals are stronger on this one. The new songs are proof that GAS is a band to watch and nice to hear a few old favorites too.

jangly, catchy, hysterically funny
i highly recommend this album on the strengths of its catchier and funnier tunes, including "steve vai boyfriend," "science teacher" and "civil war reenactor." i can't imagine life without these songs now that i've heard them.

the gospel of gas
a life transforming exploration of the human condition. Queer, quirky and catchy as hell. Consider me a member of the tribe. Has GAS considered running for Governor of CA?
