I love Ministry dearly. 'Twitch' is one of my favourite records, hands down, and I love all the crushing guitar records that came after that. 'A Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste', 'Psalm 69'. Fuck.
I'll be seeing Ministry live for the second time, in a couple of weeks. And I was recently fortunate enough to meet Al. Also, if you haven't read his autobiography, you should. It's brutal. It's Rock N' Roll shenanigans amplified by infinity. And, he's a really great writer. His debauched antics put anyone and everyone to shame. He's an extremely unique being, tapped into other worlds and higher levels of consciousness, for sure.
