WIZO (pronounced “Vee-soh”) was a Punk Rock band from Sindelfingen, Germany. The band was formed in 1985. Their messages run from political to humorous, but they are strongly against Nazism, Fascism, Racism, and “all of that dreck.” They separated in March 2005. Jochen Bix founded the band “Wieso” (meaning “why?”) with friends in Sindelfingen, a town in the vicinity of Stuttgart. In 1986 they altered their name to “WIZO” and got their first gig in 1987. In 1988 WIZO released their first demo tape, in 1990, they released another demo. Jochen only sang a few songs, including the Judas Priest cover, “Breakin’ the Law.” Then, he left and Axel Kurth became the front man. Later that year, they founded their own label, Hulk Räckorz and released the “Klebstoff” (“Glue”) EP, their first vinyl record. In 1991, “Für’n Arsch” (familiar for “To No Avail”) was released. In 1992, their first CD, “Bleib Tapfer” (“Stay Brave”) was released. They then released the single “Roy Black ist tot” (“Roy Black Is Dead”) as a dubious tribute to the German pop-star Roy Black on the one year anniversary of his death. The tribute in question was a punk cover of a children’s song with the lyrics altered to a German version of “Roy Black is dead, Roy Black is dead.” It was named the worst CD of the year by the Bild-Zeitung, a major German tabloid.
