SO WHO STILL THINKS AL JOURGENSEN IS SANE?
We just received the following press release here at the MetalSucks Mansion. I don’t usually like to just cut and paste press releases, but in this instance I feel like I need to do so in order to make my point. So:
Ministry’s Uncle Al Jourgensen is apparently in the Christmas spirit, having created a Christmas video “card” for you and his fans that is also his very first solo project.
Al and good buddy Mark Thwait (Mission UK, Peter Murphy, Mob Research), collaborated on “It’s Always Christmas Time,” a tribute to friend and band mate Paul Raven (Ministry, Killing Joke, Mob Research) on the two-year anniversary of his passing in 2007. With Christmas less than two weeks away, it’s Al’s way of spreading his very own brand of holiday cheer.
Okay. That all sounds fair enough. But then I watched the actual video in question:
Holy crap. When did Al Jourgensen turn into Ozzy Osbourne? I haven’t seen anyone fumble around like that since Stevie Wonder’s wife demanded he find her clitoris. And I could forgive the brain-dead rambling at the beginning, if the song wasn’t incredibly awful.
Maybe it’s a joke. Do you think it could all be a joke? It has to be a joke, right.
But I don’t get it.
