There are riffs and then there are Ministry riffs. Al Jourgensen’s boys play behind razor wire protection that does little to protect the audience from the nose bleed inducing mental cataclysm of their shows. The Gibby wailing ‘Jesus Built my Hot Rod’ is one of the greatest tunes ever conceived! Ding a ding dang my dang a long ling long! Smack addict flavours may confuse the metal landscape of Ministry; and you may be required to indulge in some low altitude head banging, but you must remember, ultimately, you suck! The power of lard compels you!
