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.

Am I alone in having a soft spot for the early synth-pop Ministry?

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.

I can't believe that this band once gave the impression of being something to be taken seriously. Look at that fucking brain-damaged muppet now.

You're a legendary, pioneering rock star, you've headlined sold-out gigs all over the world, indulged in every rock 'n' roll decadence imaginable, survived drug addiction and alcohol abuse, crossed paths with the likes of Madonna, Courtney Love, Robert Plant and Johnny Depp, and released a revealing and critically-acclaimed autobiography. You've done all this and lived to tell the tale...so, what do you do next? Well, if you're MINISTRY's Al Jourgensen, you join forces with British dark-artist Sam Shearon, a.k.a. "Mister-Sam," to create a series of comic books and become a super hero yourself.

"Ministry: The Devil's Chord - The Chronicles Of Alien F. Jourgensen", a 13-issue comic book series, is targeted to premiere at next July's Comic-Con in San Diego. Each issue in the series will be based on a MINISTRY album, including the platinum-certified "Psalm 69", the gold sellers "The Land Of Rape And Honey" and "The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste", as well as "Filth Pig", "Rio Grande Blood", "The Last Sucker" and "Relapse", all Top 20 albums on Billboard chart, among others.

Said Jourgensen, "I've been wanting to step away from music for a bit, switch gears...then I met Sam and then POOF! Sam turns me into a super hero. Ya, I'll sign up for that!"

"Ministry: The Devil's Chord" series will have a single story arc joining all 13 comic books together, and is themed in chronological order similar to MINISTRY's catalogue. The main thread will focus on aliens, conspiracy theories, the occult and the vile and corrupt world of governments... and of course record labels. The idea for a MINISTRY comic book was conceived by MINISTRY manager Angelina Jourgensen. The story/script of the comic book, written by Sam Shearon was inspired by conversations about Al's life with both Al and Angelina Jourgensen who provided the factual ingredients for Shearon to write this epic. Shearon has written the copy, created all of the characters and has designed and illustrated the artwork for all 13 main covers as well as the inner illustrations throughout the entire series.

"Ministry: The Devil's Chord" follows the adventures of Alien F. Jourgensen, a young musician who is discovered by a record label that seeks to change him, mold him, and control him. But as Alien focuses his attention on doing what he is truly passionate about — playing music — he discovers his true talent and becomes aware of the inherent powers that set him apart from everyone else, powers that are triggered by music. As his power grows, he sees truths that others don't: chilling realities about everything from the true intentions of those who really run the planet, to the untapped powers that lie within all of us.

The story is seen as an alternative view of the life and times of Alien F. Jourgensen and his rise to "super" power that you won't find in his autobiography. Combining elements of history and real-life Jourgensen experiences — including many tidbits that were left out of his recent autobiography — the comic books will have our hero traveling the world as a rock musician where he meets and interacts with figures such as William Burroughs and Timothy Leary.

"I'd love to have people like Trent Reznor, Billy Gibbons and Billy Haynes be characters in the series," said Jourgensen. "I mean, who doesn't want to be a super-hero?"

Yeah no. I would read a comic called Hypo Luxa, but not if that was the premise.
