Ministry – In Case You Didn’t Feel Like …


Ministry is an American industrial metal band founded in Chicago, Illinois in 1981 by producer, singer and instrumentalist Al Jourgensen. Originally a synth-pop outfit, Ministry evolved into one of the pioneers of industrial metal in the late 1980s. The band’s lineup has changed frequently, leaving Jourgensen as the sole original member left in Ministry. The band has been nominated for six Grammy Awards and has performed at several music festivals. In Case You Didn’t Feel Like Showing Up is a live album, released on September 4, 1990. It is a six-song live documentation of Ministry’s 1989-90 North American tour. It is arguably the band at its peak: the material is drawn exclusively from their two best albums (The Land of Rape and Honey, The Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Taste). The lineup is a virtual “all-stars” of hard electro, including Nivek Ogre of Skinny Puppy, Martin Atkins of Pigface, and singer Chris Connelly. This is not mere rehash, as all the songs boast heavier guitar sounds than their studio counterparts. “Burning Inside” and “Stigmata” are distinctly different, both featuring longer arrangements and additional sound effects. There is also a rotation of singers, with Connelly taking the lead on “So What” and Ogre roaring in front on “Thieves.”
