TERMINATRYX LIVE VIDEO CLIP OF “SIEK+SAT” REMIX, WITH ITS REMIXER PAUL RIEKERT (of BATTERY 9) ON GUEST VOCALS (shot at Terminatryx support slot for MINISTRY’s first South African tour)
On 4 March 2015 TERMINATRYX supported iconic Industrial legend Al Jourgensen’s MINISTRY on their first ever South African tour (hosted by Witchdoctor Productions, at Carfax, Johannesburg).
In 2015 it had been 6 years since Cape Town-based TERMINATRYX toured up north, so the band took the opportunity to get South African alternative legend Paul Riekert (of Battery 9) on stage with them. The TERMINATRYX debut album got a full remixed version in the shape of “Remyx v1.0” (2011), and Paul chose the band’s first Afrikaans song “Siek+Sat” (translated: “Sick+Tired”). So a live version of this track was the perfect choice with which to include him on this auspicious evening for guest backing vocals.
Battery 9 are South African Industrial pioneers and hadn’t played live for years (since band member Huyser Burger’s sad, untimely death) – So it wasn’t just a thrill to have Paul on stage with TERMINATRYX, but also get him back in front of people who hadn’t seen him there in a while.
This live clip of the “Siek+Sat” remix was edited from a fan shot video and includes a cool range of photographs.
Thanks to everyone coming out to support, many flying in from all over South Africa for this one night only event.
(The SlashDogs were also on the bill)
A quote from Battery 9’s Paul Riekert on the experience of that night (4 March 2015):
“To do a guest spot, playing a remix I did, with a great band supporting Ministry, seemed like a really far-fetched idea 25 years ago… What a rush that was! Mind still blown. My eternal gratitude to Terminatryx.”
