AuSSchlag (English: rash) was a German punk band, founded in 1983 at Bitterfeld in East Germany.[1] They were infamous for their open criticism to life in the GDR. One secret concert by AuSSchlag was dissolved by the police with the whole audience arrested.[2] The group disbanded in 1984 allegedly giving in to the repression of the Stasi (Ministry for State Security) of the GDR.[3] Seemingly unknown to the state authorities, AuSSchlag managed to record an 11-track demo at a private Dacha near Bitterfeld.
