Sandow is a Cottbus based band, originating from East German underground, playing a very excentric mixture of rock, punk and avantgarde music. They took their name from a district of their home town.

They became better known to a wider audience by appearing in the film "Flüstern und Schreien", a documentary about some bands in End-GDR, among them Silly, Chiccoree (later Zöllner) and Feeling B.

Their song "Born In The GDR" became very popular and some kind of anthem for the alternative East German scene (GDR - German Democratic Republic). "Er ist anders" (He is different) and "Schweigen und Parolen" (Silence and Slogans) are two other hits from the early Sandow years.

After the Berlin Wall came down Sandow released several albums showing some lyrical influence by Einstürzende Neubauten. In 1998 the band quit, but in 2005 they started a short-lived comeback.
