Ministry-The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste

Sorry folks, but you really should have seen this one coming. I mean, I talk about Chicago bands pretty frequently. I even posted their Pailhead side project. So save the sneers. I get enough from my students as it is. I've been hearing (not necessarily listening) them from way back when Jourgensen preferred to be called Alain and in sang with a horrid faux-Brit accent. Since it was so ubiquitous it makes sense that I'd come to like it. And I'll make a prediction now. Sometime in the somewhat near future we will see a return of bands imitating the Wax Trax sound. This might send a shiver down the spine of some of you, but really, how many fakegaze bands do we really need?



  1. i have 'with sympathy' on vinyl. and cassette. it is one of my all time favorite things.

    this is good too, although no where near the same -thanks : )

  2. I think it's more of a sentimental thing or something. I spent too many hours skateboarding to this one.

  3. i remember in highschool getting in trouble for writing the lyrics to 'so what' on my desk. i denied it, of course and for some odd reason was never held accountable. i was probably wearing my jesus built my hot rod t-shirt when i was confronted by my typing teacher. ah memories.
