about the content of this website
Automatic Pilot front page
Formed by members of the San Francisco Gay
Men's Chorus and the San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band,
Automatic Pilot created its own niche in the newly organized
gay performing arts scene, and helped to shape that scene.
Starting as a punk rock parody with very gay attitude and lyrics,
Automatic Pilot developed a unique form of hard core rock music
performed on all acoustic instruments,
with complex vocal harmonies and no guitar,
which they called Erotic Jazz Wave. The core members went on
to create professional recordings produced by singer Tony Kramedas,
with a decidedly more electric sound. The songwriters Karl Brown
and Matthew McQueen then contributed music to Theater Rhinoceros
The AIDS Show.
