Chances are you’ve experienced the expressive artistry of Watts through Fischer-Z, or in a myriad of solo and side project guises. Fischer-Z is an art punk band known for tuneful songcraft, poetic lyrics, astute social and political commentary, on-point musicianship, and experimental textures. The band’s 42-year career spans releasing 20 albums; playing 3000 concerts worldwide, including performing alongside James Brown, The Police, Dire Straits, and Bob Marley.
Fischer-Z is contextualized within the late 1970s brainy, arty and hook-laden school of art punks and post-punk movements. Fischer-Z’s 1979 debut, Word Salad, remains a cult classic. Its 1980 second album, Going Deaf For a Living, boasted the single “So Long” which earned prime rotation on the fledgling MTV channel. Fischer-Z’s beloved album, Red Skies Over Paradise (1981), brims with classics that have topped a million in sales.
