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.
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.
