KUMMERBUBEN & ORCHESTER
The hummingbird sextet from Bern has been rumbling over the hills with mandolin, banjo and brass instruments, rocking the valleys and sweeping out
The hummingbird sextet from Bern has been rumbling over the hills with mandolin, banjo and brass instruments, rocking the valleys and sweeping out the stable for the first time four years ago. On their sixth publication „Itz mau Apocalypse“, which saw the light of day in 2018, the grumpy boys have now inflated themselves to the fullest instrumental: with the Variaton Projector Orchestra at their side, an 80-piece (!) Symphony orchestra from Bern. From the start, the grief boys don’t talk things nicely, but head straight for the abyss with somber dialect rock. The announcements are clear: „Everything shit“, „The country esch z’chalt oms Glöck hie z’finde“ or „D’Nacht esch us Iis“. Small worlds are falling apart. It rumbles in the hinterland and in the basement. People suffer and fight silently – sometimes ironically, always unpathetic in his own tone. The Kummerbuben will contest the concert in the bow by the dozen – which means a new record on the bow stage. Bern is and remains a number in itself.
We are particularly pleased that a Zurich master (and veteran) of the polished, humorous word will kick off this Bern evening in a new formation: Linx & Lechz is the dewy duo of baby jail singers Boni Koller and Nico Fehr. Again with electronic chansons, loud guitars and „Another round can’t hurt“ lyrics.
