Lard - The Last Temptation of Reid (1990)

No one seemed to give a shit when I posted Pure Chewing Satisfaction a while back, but I'm gonna keep at it. Lard is Ministry as fronted by the ever sarcastic and satirical Jello Biafra -- a combination that works way better than you might think -- and both of their LPs are classics of thrash-y, politically-inclined industrial metal. At times, The Last Temptation gets a little too wacky for its one good, but the metal bits are killer.

Track listing:
1. Forkboy
2. Pineapple Face
3. Mate Spawn & Die
4. Drug Raid at 4 A.M.
5. Can God Fill Teeth?
6. Bozo Skeleton
7. Sylvestre Matuschka
8. They're Coming to Take Me Away
9. I Am Your Clock

Hair by mail
Tit jobs for teens
Go broke appearing rich
Searching for rosebud in the fire
Pop stars fingers in the fans
The therapist you wish you had
Crucifix or lubricant
Government by fad

  1. Mate spawn and die is a classic. The lard EP is awesome as well.
