For many years, the core of Ministry was the pair of Al Jourgensen and Paul Barker. After Barker left, Ministry became more and more metal, but Barker carried on in the industrial tradition with Flowering Blight. (And also in USSA with Duane Denison of The Jesus Lizard, but that’s, uh, not this.)
An hour of massive drone doom in a single track!
I love all things Spacemen 3, Sonic Boom, and Spiritualized. I even liked Songs in A&E, which nobody liked, but this isn’t an [only I will like it” album – it’s just an amazing album
Squarepusher albums are always either awesome dancey techno, or technically amazing but (to me) ultimately boring jazz bass affairs. This is a return to the awesome Squarepusher of old
Swervedriver are back together, and touring, which is pretty awesome. I hope they get the recognition they’ve always deserved.
