Ministry played The Drumstick to a packed house. This was in 1983, before Al Jorgensen was doing industrial music, and had just put out a popular synth pop LP (which he’s since disowned). People in Lincoln were hip to Ministry very early on because of Preston Klik, of the groundbreaking Lincoln punk band AKA (circa 1978-79), who had moved to Chicago and had played on Ministry’s first EP. Al was very sweet and gracious and allowed us to interview him before the show in the back room. We left and then realized we had left our tape recorder in the dressing room. When we went back to get it, Al was in the middle of dressing and his pants were only half way up. We ended up getting a little extra peep show!
