“Why don’t you dance with me/I’m not no Limburger”
- Cindy Wilson
The purity of noise will get you far enough if your inclinations lean towards purity.
But the world is impure and living in it is unavoidable until it isn’t.
People always need to throw highfalutin talk of the stars whenever they’re living in the gutter and even strength and purity weirdoes like Mishima climaxed first to pictures of St. Sebastian.
We love to transcend shit, if you know what I’m saying.
Even if you don’t, a life of static yearns to give the drummer some.
Gender Trouble is a new project by R. Loren (Pyramids/Sailors With Wax Wings/White Moth) and Faith Malimba (Black Doll), along with guest collaborators including Kenneth Parker and Ashley Scott Jones, and vocal spots by Marissa Nadler, and Scout Pare Phillips, that explores the much ignored/maligned/ignored genre of Harsh Noise Wall through the prism of noise, techno, and THE MOTHERFUCKING SPECTACLE.
Gender Trouble is static and synth and more static, waves and waves of static, and rejection of music and rejection of nihilism, but with a decent beat you can (but won’t) dance to.
Indebted equally to The Rita and Tiesto, I feel confident that if Little Richard was conceived in 1990, this is the music he’d be making today. "
