An unlikely new-wave band formed by former East Berlin female vocalist shortly after her immigration to West-Berlin with musicians from Lokomotive Kreuzberg. Active in 1978 and 1979 only despite the great success of their first album. Due to artistic differences and financial disputes, Nina decided to quit despite being contractually bound to deliver a second album. That album, Unbehagen, was recorded by the band without Nina. She later recorded the vocals tracks individually. Nonetheless, this album too proved to be a big success.
After the band split, Nina Hagen carried on solo with backing musicians, and the rest of the band renamed themselves Spliff.
