Music for Sick Queers Review

by Fred Thomas

An obscure sect of San Francisco's early-'80s art-punk scene, German Shepherds combined minimal synth electronics with antagonistic punk energy. Bandmembers Stephen Scheatzle and Sandy Stark made only the sole album Music for Sick Queers before dissolving the band completely, and the limited number of copies didn't circulate much farther than the Bay Area. The album's cold and grimy sounds fall in line with the same disparaged sounds as better-known contemporaries such as Suicide, Psychic TV, and the Residents.
