Spider Murphy Gang - Glory Days of Rock 'n' Roll FILMFEST MÜNCHEN 2019 - Neues Deutsches Kino
ASTOR Film Lounge im ARRI, Astor Kino, München (Details)
Rock ’n’ roll in Bavarian dialect? Prior to the hit songs of the Spider Murphy Gang, nobody really thought that could work. In fact, the band itself wasn't crazy about the Bayerischer Rundfunk's idea that they sing in German. In the early 1980s, however, the Gang dominated the hit parades as notable figures of the German New Wave. In this documentary, which features unreleased demo tapes and very personal interviews, the band looks back at its beginnings, at major achievements, and at hard times. All of the former band members have their say, including Günther Sigl and Barny Murphy, who are still rocking the stage. Collages of old and more recent concert footage revive the glory days of Bavarian rock ’n’ roll. For the first time since the 1980s, all members of this cult band will be reunited at the world premiere of this documentary at FILMFEST MÜNCHEN.
