The Download

Al Jourgensen may be a pioneer in music’s industrial revolution, but when it comes to album titles, he always seems to fall back on cheap puns. Joining the ranks of The Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Taste and The Dark Side of the Spoon, The Last Sucker (due September 18) marks the final chapter in the 26-year career of his band, Ministry. That’s right, Al’s almost 50, but you wouldn’t believe it listening to the leadoff track and first single, “Let’s Go,” which pulls out all the stops with an onslaught of fuzz-driven guitar and punishing drums over Jourgensen’s demonic banter. Download it exclusively at and pray this guy doesn’t wind up in the same retirement home as your parents.
