Hey Judas 04:04



released May 8, 2014

Jesus Jackson und die grenzlandreiter are one of the best kept secrets of the local indie scene in Augsburg, Attenuation Circuit’s home base. The lo-fi songwriter pop trio’s fourth album, the first on Attenuation Circuit, was recorded live in the rehearsal room using guitar, bass, and toy keyboards and features „artfully crafted, ironic and disturbing“ lyrics and musical influences ranging „from Velvet Underground and early New German Wave to music therapy and Bavarian folklore“ (Marc Degens on satt.org).

True to pop’s best traditions, Jesus Jackson und die grenzlandreiter appropriate lyrical and musical quotations from the music they love, with Northern soul choruses garnishing a song about the spiritual power of music (“Social Gospel”), the story of Bob Dylan’s legendary first electric UK tour told by his drummer (“Hey Judas”), and the occasional gesture of (ir)reverence towards local pop culture icons such as poet Bertolt Brecht (“Kohlenstoff und Aspirin” / “Carbon and Aspirin”) and veteran punk rock band Impotenz (“1”). Unflinchingly following the punk credo that values energy and spirited performance over technical perfection, they take their listeners on an emotional roller coaster ride on which (self-)irony and seriousness alternate every three minutes – from the angry protest song “Wir sind Gefangene” (“We Are Prisoners”), written for an event commemorating the Bavarian Soviet Republic, through dada-pop tracks like “A” (in which everything rhymes with “A”) and “Lieder, die Daz Layben schreibt” (“Songs From Zereel Live”, based on German words adopted by the English language) to the spine-chillingly atmospheric ballad “Der Vorführer” (“The Projectionist”).
