I saw their last New Wave tour at Electric Avenue sometime in the way-back. The next time I saw them was a total shock. Their last show with Melvins was a freakin riot; physically, as well as entertaining.

I really like With Sympathy. I liked Ministry in the 90s but don't listen to them anymore. It's a good album for 80s new wave. I've seen Ministry a bunch of times in the 80s and 90s. anyone remember when they played at the Palm Bay Rec Center?

I wouldn't go see them today though. I read Uncle Al's autobiography. It's a trippy read. I just found it pretty cool that he is coming around to redo With Sympathy.

31 minute mark they play 'Revenge' from the album My Sympathy.

"We turned them into arena-rock songs," Jourgensen told Rolling Stone earlier in the spring. "I feel empowered, and it's very cathartic for me to finally be able to own these songs instead of run from them. This Cruel World thing is going to be literally a public exorcism."

One of my favorite sets , Al got arrested mid tour and the sent in Trent Raznor to fill in . Gotta love a band that tours with a chain link fence !

No fence at the last show, but the rest of it was pure chaos. It was great!
