Patent Ochsner / Kunz / Stiller Has
The ox universe is as colourful as ever. Emotional, aloof, exuberant, imaginative, but never cool. There is cheeky quotation, juggling with images, words and sounds, there is a mixture of styles that sometimes makes you think you are on a little trip around the world.
Büne Huber is a creative power plant that runs and runs. With occasional breakdowns. Huber makes no secret of these, but songs. Huber combines depth with exuberance and joie de vivre. This sounds unashamedly fresh and playful live and makes Patent Ochsner the most popular band in Switzerland.
With his band, now also including horns and a pianist, KUNZ will take all fans on an energetic and colourful journey far away from the mundane. Because when the band is on stage, they fill every room with people and their hearts in turn with a lot of joy and irrepressible energy. There's dancing, singing and dreaming, not a dry ear is left behind, not a foot in the shoe, because standing still is definitely somewhere else.
When the crows shit on the car and love has gone south, when the boy scouts are already in the front yard and the beautiful moments only last a split second, then it's time for the rabbit to hook again.
Endo ages with philosophical greatness on "Pfadfinder", the 12th studio album by Stiller Has, and surrounds himself with a new musical garment, so that those who have not yet listened to his wise words may finally hear him. In dark as well as good times, we need someone like him to guide us through the existentialist swamps of the present. And when at the end he plays the trumpet "füdliblutt" on the roof and says succinctly: "Es chönnti Kunscht si u nid nume Krach", we definitely know that the hare has not yet forgotten how to hop.
