Biography from Wikipedia:
City is a German rock band, formed in East Berlin in 1972, best known for the song 'Am Fenster' (By the window) from the 1978 debut album.
The band was founded as 'City Band Berlin' by Fritz Puppel (guitar), Klaus Selmke (drums), Ingo Doering (bass guitar), Klaus Witte (keyboards), Frank Pfeiffer (vocals) and Andreas Pieper (flute). The lineup changed frequently in their early years, but stabilized by 1976, with Puppel and Selmke joined by Bulgarian violinist and bassist Georgi Gogow and vocalist-guitarist Toni Krahl. They changed their name to 'City Rock Band' and eventually simply to 'City.'
City toured extensively in East Germany, and was given the opportunity to record an album in 1978. The eponymous City showcased the band's guitar-driven rock; several songs are parables, such as 'Der King vom Prenzlauer Berg' (The King Of Prenzlauer Berg), about a young man who gets into too many fights; and 'Meister aller Klassen' (Masters Of All Classes), about cocky motorcyclists whose desire for speed ends in tragedy.
The band's greatest commercial success, however, was the atypical folk-rock-influenced 'Am Fenster', which arose from a jam session in the studio when Gogow began to play on his violin. It eventually coalesced into a three-parts, 17-minutes piece (as well as a four-minute version for radio play). An immediate hit in East Germany, it also became successful in West Germany and other countries such as Greece.
