I Am my daughter My mother My father Myself We are of the same sex, and this is as true as two and two are four I am my beloved twin brother I am husband and wife in one I love my wife I love my husband Do I sound like a holy brat? or better yet, a would-be orphan? What would be my purpose for hailing the audience to think of me as such? I don’t believe in father In mother Got no Papamummy We need to consider the possibility That one day, perhaps In a different economy bodies and pleasures people will no longer quite understand How the ruse of sexuality The power sustaining its organization Were able to subject misused Tsisitation subject us to that monarcy of sex So that we become dededicated to the endless task of forcing its secret Of exacting confessions of the true act a shadow of irony having us believe That our liberation is balanced. I don’t believe in father In mother Got no Papamummy

i was thinking, It’s not a state resembling death. It’s not like death at all. The siren howls and, Things happen because other things happen Im not Beethoven 90 percent of me is Like a saga A trick is a trick Ok so there is the inspiration plus the twinge in the heart of course That this is all too big and out of reach Rest on your load You carried it so far so you may as well abuse it I can feel the wifi

What Are We To Make Of This Con Test Bet Ween The In Trests Of Ver Bal And Pic To Ri Al Rep Re Sen Ta Tion I propose that we histori- Size it and treat it not as a matter for peaceful settlements Under the terms of some all em- bracing theory of the signs but as a struggle that carries the Fundamental contradictions THE POINT THEN IS NOT TO HEAL THE SPLIT BETWEEN WORDS AND IMAGES BUT TO SEE WHAT INTERESTS AND POWERS IT SERVES

about

Jerusalem always had a sound. Never limited to genre, yet always challenging. Wackelkontakt are the trio that currently spearheads the Jerusalem scene, playing music that's precise yet eclectic, cruel and abrasive even when vulnerable. From R&B to hip hop to industrial to power electronics and back to local influences, Wackelkontakt have already made a global mark with the sensory overload of their live multimedia performances and the scintillating presence of frontwoman Tomer Damsky AKA MC Slice, backed by Eyal Lally Bitton (electronics, visuals, scenography) and Marco Milevski Tomasin (drums and electronics).
Wackelkontakt's wildly eclectic approach, bound by an impossibly consistent sound, is a direct result of the band living a minute away from The Old City's Damascus Gate and recording in the ultra-orthodox neighbourhood of Me'a She'arim; Jerusalem is present in the music, not in the shape of touristic exotica but in a sense of conflict, paranoia and isolation.
The lyrics are equally contradictory, schizophrenic and chaotic. Emotional manipulation clashes with a desire to shake and be shaken, to allow oneself to become sucked as far as possible from self-loathing. When self-reflection arises it is bitter, ridiculous, pathetic, interweaving with philosophical texts lifted directly from the likes of Deleuze & Guatarri, Foucault, Artaud, WJT Mitchell and others. The quotes become seamless parts of the lyrical barrage, as Wackelkontakt crumble under the urge to say everything while understanding nothing, to understand everything while saying nothing.
Heal the Split is the band's debut full-length. HtS doesn't attempt to capture the live experience – it is an independent, studio entity. The title track, a naked, instrumental noise assault, sits between Papamummy, the hip hop opener, and Zkhut Kium, offering what could be tagged doom R&B. The title undermines the overwhelming sense that what was breached and broken can never be put back together; that megalomania and inferiority complexes are two sides of the same coin; that blinding empowerment is immediately exchanged with absolute nihilism. Wackelkontakt demand your attention, however only after you survived all trials of insistent, deliberate rituals of shooting themselves in the foot and blurring all possible traces of narrative. The result renders Wackelkontakt's angst locally Jerusalemite and universally millennial.
For fans of: Godflesh/JK Flesh, Sneaks, Dälek, The Body, Princess Nokia, Throbbing Gristle, Gnaw Their Tongues, Ahuva Ozeri, Sarit Hadad, Pharmakon, Puce Mary, Pan Daijing (but only if you actually enjoy all of the above)
