The name Fischer-Z is derived from a term used in statistics (Fishers z describes confidence intervals in correlations). Originally the band was called Sheep, but under that name, there is little heard of them. The hub of Fischer-Z was John Watts: he was the composer-singer and later also the producer of the band.

In addition to John Watts played Steve Skolnik (keyboards), Steve Liddle (drums) and Dave Graham (bass) in the band. In 1978 they closed a record deal with United Artists. The first plate, which appeared in 1979, was Word Salad. In the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany was of Word Salad-derived The Worker a hit. The group toured a lot. The success in England fell initially against and also the next plate, Going Deaf for a Living, brought there still no change. The Group changed: Skolnik couldn't stand the predominant behavior of Watts and left. First they toured as a trio, early ' 81 Pleeth, Graham became the replacement for Skolnik. Short time also played Bern Newman as guitarist.
