Quickie review: Ministry preaches to the masses

Posted on Thu, Jul 20, 2006 at 1:30 PM

Charles Lyford  checks in with a synopsis on last night's Ministry show at the Metroplex; look for his full review in the Times next week:

There was a giant, dancing penis; there was a naked, dancing man, and Ministry hadn't set foot on stage -- the Revolting Cocks, who played after opener Pit Bull Daycare, managed to entertain and of course disturb the audience as they hammered through a theatrical set.

Ministry seemed to at least double the Cocks' volume for the main show, playing a brutally loud and quite long set featuring two encores. Ministry focused on the resolutely anti-Bush material from their most recent two albums, although classic tracks like "So What" (not a Miles Davis cover) and "Psalm 69" did get treatment.

  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
