I've gone nearly 26 years without hearing Lard. Is it too late?

I'm a Ministry fan, of course, but already have too much Jello Biafra in my record collection as it is. Friends last night bugged out when I told them I'd never heard it - "YOU'D love it," they said. Apparently they recorded the kick drum by itself for maximum heaviosity. My curiosity is piqued. Should I bother?

I think the album The Last Temptation of Reid has stood the time well, so yes, if you're still into The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste and Jello's snarl, do check out.

The Power of Lard EP was extremely good, provided you never flipped it over onto Side B!

Well, there were isoated moments of greatness ("Forkboy", "Mate Spawn & Die" and "Hellfudge"), but I don't think your life is any less fulfilled having missed them.

They were better than pigface, for what that's worth (yes, I know exactly what that's worth)

Pigface were a nice concept. But that's all.

I think most of the good moments were named already, so.

No no no! This isn't right at all.

I'd skip the Creepers stuff, but his new Radio 6 show might be a laugh.

I was gonna say! That EP is all about the second side; they should hav only released that and then vanished into the ether.

I'm trying to imagine ANY situation where Jello would vanish into the ether. He'd be falling off a mile-high cliff and you could still hear the echoes going "Have you NOTICED what the CRIMINALS in the WHITE HOUSE are DOING?" for days later.

Damn, all 31 minutes of it! I think I heard it once or twice and that was enough for me. The rest of their catalog is quite fun.
