Malaria! was a girl band from Berlin, who reflected the unsettled post-punk mood of the walled city at the height of the Cold War but also found their way to Studio 54. They were the antithesis of the Spice Girls – naturally cool, comfortable in their own skins and capable of making an incredible racket. This track from 1983 and the accompanying super-8 film clips capture the band as a blueprint for future generations.
