Pailhead - Trait LP

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.
