about

Sonja Ruppersberg (Terminatryx): The SA landscape in the early ‘90s, with the exception of bands like V.O.D was (in my opinion) a sad state of affairs. But then out of the blue came the Industrial strength machine of Battery 9, and it annihilated everything boring and drab in its path. The first time I saw them live was at the Kaktus op die Vlaktes at the first KKNK - I could not even remember any of the other bands on stage that night. Finally there was something on the SA music scene that I could relate to and I made sure to catch them every time they came to the “Slaap Stad”.
Battery 9 stands out as one of the most innovative and original groups in SA and what an honour to have "Siek+Sat" remixed by Paul Riekert. Let the Industrial Revolution continue!

Paul Riekert (Battery 9): I love distilling things, and doing a remix is the perfect opportunity. I listened to "Siek+ Sat" until I knew the song, and identified the parts that excite me most, culled them from the original tracks, and made a "new" song from those parts. I'm also a sucker for repetition. Most songs have too many parts for my liking, and once I have the distilled ingredients, I repeat them mercilessly. Halving (or in this case, "quartering") the original drum track's tempo had some interesting results, to my ear it made everything else sound heavier.
I always try to cook up something new with the ingredients, adding a pinch of my own muti, but at the same time respect the artist(s) - staying true to the vibe of the original track.

Paul Blom (Terminatryx): Having known Paul Riekert for over a decade as a fellow alternative music mind, it was no sweat to get him to commit to remixing a song. Initially we thought of having him do CONsume (since Battery 9 also has a track with the same title), but we left the track choice up to him, and to our delight, he wanted to do Siek+Sat (our Afrikaans track), giving it that unique Battery 9 flavour.

lyrics

(chorus)
Genoeg is genoeg
Te laat is te vroeg
Genoeg is genoeg
Van die kerk tot die kroeg

Ek is moeg vir korrupsie, moord, verkragting en doodslag
En lang queue’s waar jy ure moet staan en wag
Ek is moeg vir gravy-train swape, wat vat en kry sonder swoeg
En agterbakse bliksems, wat hul eie sake vol ploeg

Ek is siek en sat vir donsdose wat dink hulle weet wat
Ek is siek en sat vir lighties wat dink hulle ken die pad
Ek is sat en siek vir ou ballies wat hulle advies kan stick
Ek is sat en siek vir kak musiek en kakker flieks

Ek is moeg vir die lewe se contradictions
En ek’s moeg vir politicians elke skrikkeljaar-klug met elections

(chorus)

Ek is gatvol vir cliché leefstyle wat uit die TV rol
En ek is gatvol vir idiote wat agter trends aan-hol
Ek is tot hiertoe vol met kunslose narre wat met spray cans jol
Ek is tot hiertoe vol met taxi-drivers wat hul karre rol

Ek is klaar met kinder- en diere-mishandelaars
En is klaar met kansvatters en dwelmhandelaars

(chorus)

Ek is siek en sat vir besoedeling van nywerhede
En om te leef in die verlede
Gatvol vir leuens en verdraaide waarheid
En vir die noodsaak om te veg vir vryheid

Ek is absoluut bored met die Hilton terte
Wat famous word omdat papa miljoene werd is
Dit maak my lam dat oorloë steeds woed
En ek is siek vir scum, nie opgesluit net lig beboet

(chorus)

Ek is tam vir slegte nuusberigte
En baby fabrieke wat nie omsien na hul pligte

Ek is siek en sat dat ons nie ‘n verkoue kan genees
En dat mense daagliks moet leef in vrees
Ek is siek en sat dat skoenmakers nie hou by hul lees
En ek’s siek en sat date ek sien en sat moet wees

Genoeg is genoeg
Te laat is te vroeg
Genoeg is genoeg
Laat my walg, laat my wroeg

Genoeg is genoeg!
