❉ Ministry’s Al Jourgensen fires loaded version of ‘20th Century Boy’ with Beauty in Chaos.
While Ministry is mid-way through their current North American tour, frontman Al Jourgensen, together with LA-based Beauty in Chaos, have unveiled their new video for 20th Century Boy. This is one of 14 brilliant tracks found on the debut album Finding Beauty in Chaos, curated by LA-based guitarist Michael Ciravolo and produced by Ministry’s Grammy-nominated producer Michael Rozon.
Regular readers may recall that We Are Cult previewed this album and its lead track Storm back in August 2018. Beauty in Chaos’ debut LP also features members of The Cure, The Mission, Cheap Trick, Ministry, The Offspring and Ice T, among many other music luminaries.
The video for 20th Century Boy was produced by Industrialism Films and directed by Vicente Cordero, who says:
“Working again with Beauty In Chaos and Michael is always a pleasant adventure. Out of the 3 videos we have done, each has been a completely different visual approach specifically designed for each song. When we made the video we wanted to go with a raw feel so we decided to film in a seedy bar and have a high energy performance, and Al Jourgensen and BIC did deliver”.
“This was a song I always wanted to cover, and finding out Al was also a T. Rex fan turned on the light for me to do this,” explains Michael Ciravolo:
“Ironically, my now wife Tish and I’s first real date was seeing MINISTRY at Lollapalooza in ’92. They were simply brutal and what a sonic assault! We both became big fans. Fast-forward 25 years and Al is sitting in my studio singing and blowing harp on this song! Tish and I sharing the stage with him in this video was pretty special and it shows that you never know where life will take you”.
❉ ‘Finding Beauty in Chaos’ is available on CD and digitally, including on iTunes, Spotify and Bandcamp. CDs and vinyl can be ordered from the Beauty in Chaos website at https://www.beautyinchaosmusic.com/music-store.
