Ministry Frontman Al Jourgensen’s Country Side Project, Buck Satan and the 666 Shooters, Streams New Album

Buck Satan and the 666 Shooters, the psycho-country alter-ego of Ministry founder Al Jourgensen, will release their long-awaited debut album, Bikers Welcome! Ladies Drink Free, on January 17. But Uncle Al and cohorts–including Rick Nielsen (Cheap Trick), Tony Campos (Static-X), and Mike Scaccia (Rigor Mortis)–are happy to give you an exclusive sneak preview at the entire record below. Crank up the volume, read what Jourgensen has to say about the album, and let us know what you think in the comments.

Unfortunately the time we had to stream the album has expired. You can buy the album on Amazon or iTunes.

REVOLVER What possessed you to write a “cowboy-core” album even before bringing back Ministry for this March’s reunion record, Relapse?
I’ve been promising fans a country record for 30 years, so after I got out of the hospital [read about Jourgensen’s near-death experience here] and back in the studio, I made Buck Satan my first priority. I just decided I needed to do this in case I had another [health] freak out.

Were the musicians you worked with schooled in country rock?
No way, man. I hired a fiddle player who canceled out on me, so we ended up getting these girls from Houston who play in a symphony and have never done country. Mikey and I were the only ones who knew anything about country, so it was really a case of the blind leading the blind, and that’s what makes it sound different. It’s like this stoner country record that’s perfect for sitting back, lighting up a big fatty, and listening to on headphones.

  • BigBaldBuddy

    Kinda strange, but I would not expect anything normal from Al Jourgensen.  Keep it up, and keep em guessing.

  • Putkonen

    Sounds as cheap and plastic as the last two Ministry albums. Damn.

    • Dognail

      If your referring to Rio Grande Blood and The Last Sucker, my condolences. So what was the last good Ministry album then?

  • _Lothar

    I was preparing for a slow tempo country stew, took 3
    listens the first with my health problem in full gear.  Drawn back by a chorus ‘I hate every bone in
    yer body, except mine’ this is both serious and zany.  I could pick out Rick Nielsen’s guitar work,
    that’s a trip but then … when you start listening to the fiddle it gets even
    more interesting (just picture the studio in your head).  I didn’t get an ulcer from it and I plan on
    picking up a copy, along with some cowboy boots…

  • _Lothar

    maybe this is a new genre?!?

  • USArmyRetired

    I’ve been a Ministry fan since 1989. This album is awesome!

  • Tim Gavin

    did uncle al just invent industrial country?

  • Billybrown662000

    I can’t stop listening.  Damn it’s awesome.  Thanks Uncle Al and thanks Brother Mike.

  • IronDeath420

    i dont like country but this is funny for al doing lol

  • Drbotel

    burn in hell, for this stupid album uncle Al

  • Truth

    sorry al, Hank 3 already does this, and does it much better… GG Allin called, he wants his style back.

    • Abbey_of_Thelema

       Allin? The super Sell-Out who did EVERYTHING on stage for money??
      Yeah, Al (The guy who did NO interviews for a whole 10years after their success album “Psalm 69”) really needs to learn from the dead loser? Al keeps his dirt, drugs and shit to himself. He´s no SELL-OUT you see..
      Al does what Al wants and doesn´t give a fuck what you think. That´s more than you could ever say about Allin. He was ALL about what you and the Media thought and If you didn´t get upset by his lousy show he´d cry or throw a tantrum or maybe O.D ´til DEATH??
      Also, Ministry started in 1981, no-one not closely related to Allin even heard about the loser until his death. Go FUCK yourself, dead guy!

  • Godswitch

    I love it tough:D

  • Godswitch

    Damn you impress me!!

  • Constantan Alph-Omeg R.

    The loudness war strikes again, I see.  This is unlistenable. Same tempo for every song. Sorry but this sucks.

  • Kdeebs

  • Michaeldgregory1981

    Interesting, wish he had used real drums..

  • Scoob

    that’s awesome man. great line-up in the band. i always knew your musical roots ran deep and have always wondered if you’d tip your hat to country. love it!

  • Phil Lucafo

    Being one of the authors of “The Only Time I’m Sober Is When Your Gone” I have to say I LOVE IT!  Great arrangement and Rick did a real nice solo on it…Hope it goes platinum.
