The interface for the pictures page is almost done and I added a new category (pictures taken by myself and friends), and added pictures to some other categories. I've had more time to do this as I'm grounded - I fractured my ankle at Neo. Ironically, they were playing So What? at the time....
Today, the online chat with members from Ministry took place. For those that missed it, the transcript from the online chat can be read here.
Al stated that the working title for the upcoming Ministry album (to be released around April '06), is Rio Grande Blood (a take on an album by ZZ Top called Rio Grande Mud).
The upcoming Best of Revco release (from Rykodisc) should be out around September/Octobor '05 and will be called Cock and Loaded.
Also around September '05, Al will be releasing Rantology. It seems included in this release will be remixes of No W ("Today I am re-doing "NO W" with an orchestral intro"), NWO, Bad Blood, Stigmata, Jesus Built My Hotrod, Unsung, Bad Blood, Bloodlines, and more. A new track by the name of The Great Satan will also be included.
Regarding the upcoming Revco release: six tracks are done, and Gibby Haynes sings on all but one.
Here are some interesting snippets from the online chat (user ALIENJ is Al):

Sanctuary Records have renewed their contract with Ministry and Jourgensen will be start working on the new Ministry release in August '05, and will have it completed by mid-December '05. The album's working title is Rio Grande Mud, and, if everything goes as planned, it should be out by early April '06.
Mike Scaccia and his girlfriend have moved to El Paso. They are expecting a baby boy, Ryder Scaccia, on September 11. Congratulations to them all. Darrell James is also currently in El Paso, and Mark Baker will be joining them in July.
This upcoming fall, Rkyodisc will put out a Best of Revco album, and it will contain 2 unreleased Revco tracks.
The process of adding new pictures, onto the pictures page, has started and I've decided to open up the page even though it's not complete.
Currently, there are new promotional pictures. The Live section is broken out into subsections and many more sections will be created.
Yes, the Pictures gallery has been weak for the past few years. I am currently working on a new interface, and have found pictures on my hard drive that were never even released before, anywhere. As soon as this is done, I will make the pages live.
Here's a list of Ministry updates (there haven't been any on this site in ages):
1. Gibby Haynes was currently in the studio with Al, working on the new Revolting Cocks album, which is due to be released in early 2006. Haynes will return to work on the album over summer.
2. There is a Ministry and Revco tour planned for 2006.
3. Al recently re-mixed The Melvins and Jello Biafra track, Enchanted Thoughtfist.
4. Al recently did a re-mix of a SpyderBaby track, Bitter, which will be on an upcoming SpyderBaby release out this fall. SpyderBaby has also completed a cover of Every Day is Halloween which will also be included on the release.

What Is The Reason is the new download on the Sound Page. This is the 1983 live version which has the same theme as but different lyrics from the version done live on the 1982 tour. This performance comes from the 7/14/83 show in Philadelphia.
