So I read both Chris Connelly’s and Al Jourgenson’s books and dug ‘em both. Both of them are very funny, but Connelly’s appears to be the one most firmly rooted in self-aware, self-depreciating reality whereas at least 75% of Jourgenson’s is hyperexaggerated bullshit. Interestingly enough, even though Jourgenson never misses a moment to trash Connelly, Barker, and everyone else who made Ministry, RevCo, or the dozens of side-projects memorable and cool, Connelly never trashes Jourgenson - he makes fun of his temper tantrums, of course, but they all seem like accurate, friendly busts reinforced by Jourgenson’s own words. Long story short, if you were ever a fan of the infamous Ministry, RevCo, Pigface, Lard or any/all of the late 80s, early 90s Chicago industrial rock / industrial post-punk music coming outta Wax Trax! I recommend you read both these books to get the full, sordid story in all it’s noisy outlaw glory.
