Ministry is almost halfway through their North American Tour in support of the punkvoter.com initiative and their recent «Houses of the Molé» CD.
New tour mascot George Dubya makes an appearance early on the bone-ridden stage set but gets abused by frontman Al Jourgensen and later gets beat up by a stagehand while Jourgensen simulates an anal sex motion. While the current band's live line-up has been reshuffled, only guitarist «Mikey» Scaccia (Rigor Mortis) and keyboarder Darrell James (Pound of Flesh) played on the last tour and are contributors to the new Revolting Cocks sessions. The other live players consist of drummer Mark Baker, Rick «Tricky» Valles (guitar) and Eddy Garcia (bass guitar) both from the group Pissing Razors. Five recent west coast dates had a special guest appearance by punk icon Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys) to perform some Lard tracks live.
Jourgensen was noticeably absent from soundcheck in Toronto as his voice was on the mend. Interviews have been put off for the next week or so, partially due to celebrating his birthday recently in Chicago. On this tour there weren't as many older signature Ministry classics played as on the last tour. Close to the end of the main set in Toronto, to the surprise of the audience, Jourgensen rhymed off a few bars of Led Zeppelin's «All My Love». Current Ministry's Evil Doer Tour continues on until December 14th.
Last week saw the re-release the three Revolting Cocks CD's with bonus material on RykoDisc (US) and two interesting Ministry compilation CD's: «Early Trax» and «Side Trax».
