The Shizzoe-Poffet-Beck trio welcomes its fourth member with Oli Hartung on guitar. Recorded right after road-testing the new material the quartet hit the studio floor with Ron Kurz at the helm.
Intricately woven guitar textures, finely crafted arrangements and the who’s who of the alpine music scene guests: Kuno Lauener (vocals, Zueri West) and Markus Flückiger (accordion) join in on an adaption of “Fingt ds Glück eim?” (“Your Luck Will Find You”), Hanery Amman and Polo Hofer of Rumpelstilz join in on “Happy Man”, Claudia Bettinaglio and Pink Pedrazzi sing harmony vocals. And with “Mrs. Hippy” the Directors deliver an outstanding instrumental, heavier than lead.
