QUZZ

Quzz was a German rock band from Regensburg. Their distinctive trademark was the front-woman "Luna" (Claudia Hübel) with her powerful voice and stage presence.
The band existed from 1994 to 1996. In the course of time a lot of self-compositions were produced which unfortunately were not published on any official CD production. The music style was a mix of rock, pop and punk (somewhere between "Nina Hagen, Ideal and Ina Deter band").

The band could reach some highlights in their short time of acting. They won the "varta prize challenge" among 6000 participants and played at the legendary Theatron festival in munich. Therefore they can be heard with their winner song "Energie" on the first Hologram Shape CD worldwide.
Their song "loslassen" was a hit in the urban live scene.
