Ministry's Al Jourgensen On Industrial Music; Jherek Bischoff, In The Studio

Email a Friend

In this episode: Ministry might have started off playing new wave and synth pop in the 1980s, yet it evolved into one of the most important industrial rock bands of all time. Ministry's frontman Al Jourgensen has been there through it all, and tells it all in his new memoir Ministry: The Lost Gospels According To Al Jourgensen. Jourgensen discusses his, frankly, insane life -- and talks about what the future holds for the band.

Then, Washington Post music editor Chris Richards shares three new tracks.

And orchestral pop composer and musician Jherek Bischoff -- known for his work with Amanda Palmer, Parenthetical Girls, and David Byrne -- stops by the Soundcheck studio to perform songs with New-York-based classical ensemble Contemporaneous.
