Spliff – Carbonara

Spliff was a Neue Deutsche Welle (New German Wave) rock band, active in the 1980s. The members were already playing together before they were ‘adopted’ by Nina Hagen when she came to West Germany in 1977. They recorded two albums with her as the Nina Hagen Band before continuing under the name Spliff when Hagen went solo. Their characteristic sound was a mix of electronic music and rock.

Many of the musicians subsequently formed a band called Froon.The Other Ones was another offshoot band, which included Alf Klimek, who had appeared on the Spliff Radio Show as Alf Klimax.
