LP repressed after years! On paper, the collaboration between Jello Biafra and Ministry seems like a match made in industrial punk heaven, and thankfully the first release from Lard lives up to these expectations.

Both parties seemed to have taught the other side a thing or two: Jello Biafra is more focused than usual, while Alain Jourgensen and Paul Barker from Ministry sound a lot more punky and loose.

The percussion, courtesy of Bill Rieflin and the late Jeff Ward, is firmly in an industrial style, though - all mechanized metallic thrashing, but it works just fine with the material.

The standout track is "Forkboy," the album's opener, a frantic guitar workout with Biafra's righteous anger coming through loud and clear.
