about

Yes, we admit. We at Konkord sometimes put the thumbscrews on our artists. In case they’re not delivering on time. And the South Tyrolean Othmar Schönafinger aka The Shea had been stalling us for just too long. Why would we and all those 60ies fans and all pop-bohemiens in general renounce the many hits, the glittery bits and the ballroom blitz The Shea is famous for? Well, we wouldn’t! So, thumbscrews tightened and voilà, Othmar delivers.

On his debut album "Every Tear A Hit" (Konkord 108) Othmars’ one-man-band The Shea sparred the short-crunchy songs of the Kinks, Zombies and Beatles, on the follow up "Disappear" he stirs a healthy shot of glam rock into the mix. With the Single "Pumping On Your Chest" The Shea finally succeeded in creating a hit that Marc Bolan would whistle along to, as would the early Roxy Music. This album also features one of the most explosive guitar solos in the Trash-N-Fun genre. Take that, Wild Billy Childish!

Naming his band after the stadium where the Beatles gave their last official concert, Othmar is fogging us on "Pumping On Your Chest" with the most exquisite sounds of his many vintage dream machines, creating Texmex soundscapes soaked in tequila and filling us up to the brim with psychedelic fuel. So if you’ve been tired of waiting, don’t be no more. Because all the catchy melodies, the swinging earscapes and the laissez-fairiest motownish dance grooves you’d ever imagined are all right here on this vinyl.

And the world is a better place now - courtesy of our thumbscrews.

Doch doch, wir geben es zu. Wir von Konkord setzen schon mal die Daumenschrauben an bei unseren KünstlerInnen. Schluss mit lustig. The Shea hat ein fantastisches Album fertig: raus mit der Rakete! - „Nö!“, meint der Songwriter. Und Freaks, Fans, Nerds, Birds und überhaupt alle Pop-Perlen-Bohemiens sollen auf Hits verzichten, die Glitzer schwitzen & Ballrooms blitzen? Never ever! Daumenschrauben angezogen und voilà, schon liefert die One-Man-Band, die am Samt-Revers „Beat & Beatles“ in Fettschrift eingemeißelt hat. Die Jagd nach catchy Melodien, der Hall eines Vintage-Reverbs, der Laissez-faire von Dancegrooves à la Motown, das Fiepen einer uralten Eko Tiger Duo Orgel, die er aus dem Sperrmüll gerettet hat – indeed, der Südtiroler Othmar Schönafinger aka The Shea kennt jedes noch so bunte Kristall-Kügelchen, das wie die Swinging 60ies glimmert. The Shea, so lautet ja auch schließlich der Name des Stadions, in dem die Beatles ihr letztes offizielles Konzert gegeben haben.

Hat er auf seinem Debutalbum „Every Tear A Hit“ (Konkord 108) den kurz-knackigen Songs der Kinks, Zombies und Beatles nachgespürt, so rührt er auf „Disappear“ einen kräftigen Schuss Glamrock dazu. Mit „Pumping On Your Chest“ gelingt The Shea damit ein Hit, den Marc Bolan mitpfeifen würde, und die frühen Roxy Music ebenso. Und der so nebenbei eines der explosivsten Gitarrensoli in Sachen Trash-N-Fun parat hält. Der Wild-Billy-Childish-Hosenband-Orden in doppelt kariertem Paisley geht 2021 an … The Shea! Tief in Fuzz-Sounds eingenebelt nimmt uns Othmar Schönafinger mit auf seiner Dream Machine, macht uns mit „Missus Mizzy“ ziemlich dizzy, streift vorbei an Tequila-getränkten Texmex-Soundscapes und tankt bis über den Rand psychedelischen Treibstoff. Südtirol ist ja berühmt für seine Berge. Grau in Grau in Weiß. Höchste Zeit also, dass mal wieder jemand einen knallbunten Gipfel hinzufügt!
