Whatever you want to say, that is pretty fucking awesome all the way around.


On one Bitter Tears tour, some shows would wind down to an almost empty room, with only a few senseless drunks remaining. They would shout and shout at us to keep playing, even though they could hardly stand up or really care what we did, and the friendly promoter or the person running the bar, just wanted the show to be over.

On those occasions, we would offer up our medley of Roy Orbison's "Pretty Woman," and Ministry's "Just One Fix."

We kept it simple: "Pretty Woman," was the verse, and "Just One Fix," was the chorus.

They actually went together in a strange way. But it was enough to make you sick, and after we played it, no one ever asked for more music from us.

That's hilarious. I've been trying to do a mental mash-up of these two songs and the way you described playing them and just that is making me slightly nauseous...I can only imagine what it must have sounded like in person. :lol:

I wish I hadn't watched that. It's clear at this point Ministry doesn't have a high standard on anything but that's beneath everything they've previously put out. Fuck.

The day Paul Barker left, that was it. He was the reason there'd be anything interesting on Ministry records. Without him, it's just laughable nu-speed metal.

There's not one second of anything worth listening to after Houses of the Molé, even once, it is literally the worst.

It's a covers album if you hadn't guessed.

Taken as a whole. Utter crap.

However, Land of Rape and Honey and Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste weren't that awful.

gave Jourgensen's book a quick once-over at the bookstore. good lord, I knew the book could have been re-titled Check Out What A Gleefully Reprehensible Asshole I Am, but WOW.

The best part: Ministry have to follow The Cure at a European festival which takes place in a venue literally surrounded by a moat. Robert Smith, having heard how Jourgensen lives to fuck with other bands backstage, stipulates that Jourgensen CANNOT CROSS THE MOAT until the Cure are done playing.

Well-played, Mr. Smith.

not at all, it's definitely good and still holds up better than anything he's put out in the last maybe 15 years...what i don't understand is why he won't acknowledge this part of Ministry...

also i'm friends with his daughter on FB (and a lot of mutual real life friends) and i'm real close to just deleting her, i never delete anyone unless they get super shitty about things but she's a near 30-something who's still stuck in junior high...

I think "not... horrible?" is about the best we can hope for at this stage.

That first Pigface album is basically Ministry without Jourgensen.

It is the best Ministry album.
