Early-1970's German rock group from Berlin who changed into [a356574] and then [a761398].

Strangely named after a pipe tobacco, Murphy Blend were quite a mystery. They were also a rarity in early German rock, as they combined the psychedelic Krautrock sound with heavy rock, blues and classical musics. Their music had hints of early Jane and Pell Mell, but apart from that they had a unique style, with a strongly accented vocalist, topical lyrics and heady instrumentals, heavily featuring chunky Hammond organ.
