MINISTRY's JOURGENSEN To Teach History At University?

June 24, 2004

MINISTRY frontman Al Jourgensen has told Release magazine that he has his life exactly planned out now that he's quit using heroin. "I was a heroin addict for 20 years and was asleep for like nine," he said. "Now I know exactly what I want to do: Two more MINISTRY albums, one more LARD album and one more REVOLTING COCKS album. Then I'm going to pick up my career as a teacher again. I have a master's degree in history, so I am going to teach at a university, maybe the University of Texas as a professor."

MINISTRY's new album, "Houses of the Mole", was released this week through Sanctuary Records. Jourgensen worked on "Houses" with guitarist Mike Scaccia (RIGOR MORTIS),guitarist Brian Kehoe (M.I.R.V., JERRY CANTRELL, THE LES CLAYPOOL FROG BRIGADE),bassist John Monte (replacing longtime member Paul Barker, who quit in January),keyboardist Darryl James and ex-FEAR drummer Mark Baker. The musicians are currently in the studio — with ex-SKATENIGS singer Phil Owen and Frankie Nardiello from MY LIFE WITH THE THRILL KILL KULT — working on a new album by REVOLTING COCKS, tentatively due later in the year.
