The complete recordings from the short-lived but powerful side project of Ministry’s Al Jourgensen and Fugazi’s Ian MacKaye are getting a special new release courtesy of Cleopatra Records! Pailhead combined Jourgensen’s electronic industrial production with MacKaye’s punk rock inspired guitar playing and songwriting. The group burned bright in its short existence, releasing just a handful of official tracks spread across 12” and 7” singles in 1987 & 1988.
Now, these recordings along, with one rare mix and a brand new remix courtesy of The Mission/Peter Murphy guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite, are being once again pressed on vinyl in a limited edition blue marble pressing and in a slick digipak CD
Also, rumor has it that Ministry will be including a couple of Pailhead tracks in their set for the new blockbuster Industrial Strength Tour featuring guests Melvins & Corrosion Of Conformity.
