[tweetmeme]Al Jourgensen’s newly reformed Ministry next week will release Relapse, the band’s first new album in five years, and they’re promoting it with a new music video for pro-Occupy Wall Street single “99 Percenters” (“1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 99 percent!”), which you can see above via Revolver. Ministry’s Relapse will be released March 26.
[tweetmeme]Their already short tour cut even shorter by last-minute visa trouble, The Jesus and Mary Chain performed their first concerts in four years this week with a three-date tour of Texas that included a club gig in Houston on Tuesday, a delayed set at 35 Denton on Wednesday and a late-night South By Southwest show in Austin on Thursday.
The brothers Reid had also planned a New Orleans show, but it was bumped to Sept. 5 by the same immigration troubles that delayed the band’s Denton show. No word yet if they’ll play more U.S. shows in September — but it’s not very likely they’d travel all the way here for a single show.
Full setlists seem hard to come by, but reviews of the shows in the Houston Press and via our friends at Old Waver show the band played well-known tracks such as “Head On,” “Taste of Cindy,” “Blues From a Gun,” “Reverence,” “Far Gone and Out,” “Sidewalking,” “Just Like Honey” and “Happy When It Rains,” plus lesser known tracks such as “Between Planets” and “All Things Must Pass,” the one new song the group has recorded since reconvening in 2007.
Above, you can see video of “Happy When It Rains” from the Houston show, and, below, several more clips from Houston, Denton and SXSW.

You’re playing Thomas Dolby doing obscure Joni Mitchell. How amazing is that!
In fact, I was – and the Dolby cover itself was pretty obscure, too, given that it was available only as the B-side for the One Of Our Submarines single in the UK. But then I remembered that it was also featured on Dolby’s “Live Wireless” embellished concert video. Note that I say “embellished” because the entire show is presented as though it’s Dolby, playing a projectionist, presenting the concert as though what’s on stage is the thing being projected. At one point, the film even gets stuck, causing all participants on stage to freeze.
“Since it’s a video,” I mused for about a nanosecond, “it must be available on the net…”

Outside of a connection to more than one They Might Be Giants song/video, there’s not much to say about Altrok’s kind of music in this post, but maybe that’s enough.
I was born a New Yorker in 1964, lived in The Bronx until 1970, and have near-memories of having been brought to the 1964 World’s Fair in its second season by my parents. I’d have been one year old, give or take, and that’s why I say “near-memories”, because I think what memories I have are really my parents pointing out the scenes from “It’s A Small World” as they played during the opening for Walt Disney’s Wonderful World Of Color and saying “you saw that when you were a baby”. Of course, back then they told me I was a model for Carter’s, so I guess I peaked early.
(Truth? I actually was a model for Carter’s when I was a baby, and my contract with the Marge McDermott Agency expired when I turned 18. So, hey, apparently I was a cute kid, and I can say with some level of truth to my wife that she’s married to a male model. Aheh.)
But I’ve harbored a lingering fascination with the World’s Fair and the diaspora of its attractions as I’ve stumbled across them as they’ve moved from their original installations (The Skyride at Six Flags Great Adventure! The whole “It’s A Small World” ride at Disneyland in California and the Carousel Of Progress at Disney World! Etc.) and whenever I get the opportunity to stumble across ephemera from the time, well, that’s pretty much a day I’ll be spending doing more stumbling.
So, feeding this fascination, I’ve collected a few conveniently uploaded videos from YouTube, but I have a yearning for more. Like, for instance, it’d be nice to see something that audiences saw in the egg-shaped IBM pavilion. All I can find is the folk trio (made up of IBM employees – my father, a former IBMer himself, remembers the woman on the left from Personnel) at about the 6 minute mark in the clip below.
There is much more video to post, but I’ve probably given you enough links to enough related videos to keep you busy a while.
But what about what I can’t post? Some thirty million people went to the fair, surely there’s a pile of home movies out there…
