The Advocate, the national gay newsmagazine, did a cover story
by erdward Guthmann titled"Merry Musicmakers from Coast to Coast"
surveying the fledgling organized gay and lesbian musical movement.
The article describes the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus and its three
official subgroups, then the following quote:
A fourth, Automatic Pilot, is a non-official offshoot, and for obvious
reason. Probably best described as New Wave-S/M-with-piano-and-strings,
they recently sang "Sit On My Face" to an audience of potential benefactors.
This refers to the
Kabuki performance Nov 23, 1980
which was also reviewed in
Data-Boy Dec 12, 1980
