Breinskade: Worspriester [Battery 9's Paul Riekert side project]
The first Breinskade recording saw the light in 1994, when Paul Riekert (battery9) started to make Rotterdam gabba-inspired tracks (with a distinct local flavour) as a hobby. A silly suggestion to perform Breinskade on stage led to the forming of a "performance art piece" by Paul, At Nel (Somerfaan) and Huyser Burger (DJ Fokolnonsens). The show was exactly 10 minutes long, brimming with absurdity, humour, unpredictability and violence; the set and props (consisting of failed consumer electronics) were smashed to bits in the last minute. This is still the only predictable minute of the show, the other nine remain an uncomfortable surprise.
Worspriester is an album that will reach out and hurt you. As subtle as a few blows to the head with a blunt object, it is a merciless piece of work. Intentionally ugly, grotesque, absurd and, very importantly: quite funny. While it bathes in brutality, it never becomes too serious. For the brave listeners who stick it out, who surrender to, and imbibe in, the violence and the humour, there awaits an intense catharsis.
The unflattering, absurd side of the human psyche is normally suppressed or ignored in this rational and sterilised society; Breinskade celebrates it. (Think Dada, Surrealism, Absurdist Theatre.) Humour, bad taste and aesthetic unacceptability are the foundations of the project, which is why there are no "nice songs" with intricate chord structures on the album.
Worspriester was recorded between 1994 and 2001 at various places in and around JHB. Sound-wise it is rooted in hardcore techno (160 - 250 bpm), but has developed a sound of its own through the years, which makes it sit nicely in between genres.
An unsettling document of urban paranoia and terror, that will either leave you feeling happy and relieved, or will have you scuttling to the medicine cabinet for a tranquilizer.
