ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
GAS returns with more quirky power pop, targeting celebrity, censorship, fashion, apathy, boredom, and more.

Best rock band nominee, 2005 Madison Area Music Awards

Madison\'s Favorite Local Rock/Metal Band 2004...all their off-kilter lo-fi pop-punk songs show an irrepressible joie de vivre as they take on dating, skating and cruise control.
-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

Bands on the Rise: The German Art Students-nimble witted new wave pop.
-Rolling Stone

Catchy hooks, well conceived melodies, and great interplay between all instruments...all surrounding a backbone of humor.
-Mark Hughson, Now Wave Magazine

The songs are executed with a gleeful amateurism I haven\'t heard since the golden days of the Violent Femmes. Studio \"polish\" would only take away from these off-kilter pop gems.
-Joseph McCombs, starpolish.com

Meagan

Best band in town!
I used to go to GAS live shows in Madison, which at the time were few and far between. This is a great album with more fun, punk-rocky songs to keep you giggling and thinking.

GAS Fan

Great new songs from a great band!
Great new songs from GAS on this CD -- the lyrics are just as fun as always and the band has really captured the cofidence they project during their live performances. Easily one of my favorite CDs right now. Thanks GAS!
