Munich Again Summer in the City

Oans, zwoa, g'suffa, Hofbräuhaus
Kölner Dom

Following the lyrics of a popular ballade which shows a lot of affection for the city of Munich from the well known band “Spider Murphy Gang” (singer: Günther Sigl, founded 1977, singing in bavarian dialect, “Mia san a boarische Band” we are a bavarian band; still on tour). It takes the listener through striking places and atmospheres in Munich, the wild life in “Schwabing” in the 70’s and Luck Duck Sheila spent the day on the tracks of that song.
