Haujobb would be a great act, if they would avoid singing.
As fantastic Daniel and Dejan are as composers as inapt their vocals are on most of the tunes.

"Haujobb" is a poor German attempt at a direct translation (≈"hide"+"job") of the English word "skinjob", which of course means cheap leather imitation ("replicated skin"). In the movie Bladerunner, "skinjob" is used as a derogatory term employed to liken the bio-droids to furniture, thereby depriving them of human characteristics and emphasizing their role as property. This double meaning of the word is subsequently lost on the Germans, but then again they're not a very subtle or imaginative people, are they ;) Their translators really should have referred to the replicants along the line of "Pegamoids", "Klarinos" or "Skypuppen", i.e. brands of Kunstleder instead.

What about their first demo tape named "Drift Wheeler" which came out in 1993? It's not listed so far? Want! :oD

Haujobb is a term from the movie "Bladerunner". It is the encoded order to kill a replicant (a kind of android).
