Their controversial first single release 'Skandal im Sperrbezirk' (roughly translated: 'Scandal at the Red Light District') was banned from conservative radio stations in the early 80ies, and yet it turned out to be a huge commercial success and the breakthrough of this German act from Bavaria. Other hits releases like 'Schickeria', 'Wo bist Du?' or 'Mir san a bayrische Band' followed and were much more representative for the original sound of the bands, which draws its most important influences form the golden era of Rock'n'Roll and the likes of Chuck Berry & Co..
