Hotel Morphila Orchester

The Hotel Morphila Orchester was founded 1978 by Peter Weibel (voice/lyrics) and Loys Egg (guiter/composition).
„In the old times in vienna every good hotel or coffee-house had their own orchestra. Since this tradition is extinct today we call ourselves after a hotel that doesn’t exist either. Hotels have a good tradition in rockmusic: Heartbreak Hotel, Morrison Hotel, Hotel California.... The name of the hotel swings between morbid, morphium, Morpheus (god of dreams/sleep), Mephistopheles, Morphe, Godzilla and indicates the character of the hotel, the guests, the music: monster-rock by machines, music of the metropoles, neon-rock, code-breaker, clinic-music for patients of all kinds“ (Peter Weibel)
