Spider Murphy Gang
Skandal im Sperrbezirk
The Spider Murphy Gang is a Bavarian Rock 'n' Roll band founded 1977 in Munich.
Spider Murphy Gang was one of the most successful bands of the "Neue Deutsche Welle" ("New German Wave", ie songs with German lyrics). The NDW lasted for about 2 years during the early 80s. It was a huge thing in Germany, with songs in German played on the radio outnumbering those sung in English (unthinkable these days).
Initially the Spider Murphy Gang covered mostly songs by Chuck Berry and Elvis Presley in English
