William S. Burroughs
recites his spoken word over a scathing industrial
soundscape in the Ministry
song of the same name. It can be found on the "Just One Fix
" single/EP. Al
's background sonic collage includes Native American
chanting and samples from Nine Inch Nails
" and "Happiness in Slavery
Also, I'm glad that Bones transcribed "We are all not that much better than you earthlings" correctly. Nine out of ten Burroughs sites on the Internet say "earth aches". I think they're missing a large percentage of the point. In fact, I think the entire piece fits in better within its native context - "Just One Fix" fleshes it out quite well. It's no accident that Al Jourgensen is considered the WSB of industrial rock.
I love wearing my "Smash the control images. Smash the control machine." T-shirt to class.
