Al Jourgensen "Double Taps" in 2012 Rock Gods and Metal Monsters Auction

Al Jourgensen

"Uncle Al" was done, finished, finito! After Ministry's 2008 / 2009 "C-U-LaTour" tour, Al Jourgensen retreated to his El Paso compound to take a well-deserved break from 3 decades of unholy craziness. One more album he promised - which came in the form of the 2010 'Got Cock?". OK, one more then, when he embraced his country roots with 'Buck Satan and the 666 Shooters' release.

Meanwhile, Al emptied out his closets for the 2010 Rock Gods and Metal Monsters auction, which offered an avalanche of gear, instruments, clothing, accessories and other mementos.

"Fast forward...2012 and Al is back with more poise, piss and vinegar than ever before. Relapsing back to the peak of industrial metal, Ministry rages like the Rio Grande river......and the collective "we" couldn't be happier!"

And like 2 years ago, Backstage Auctions once again has a fine selection of historic collectibles from Jourgensen 'private reserve', dating back to the 1980s. Between the leather jackets, coats, pants and boots, there is enough DNA to make collectors excited. Like these boots for example, if you ever wanted to know what it is to walk in Jourgensen's footsteps:

Or - if you want to go even more exclusive - you can 'speed-pick' your way through any Ministry song with this one-of-only-6 made Schechter Coffin guitars;

Something a little smaller perhaps - we've got that as well, such as Al's personal laminated tour from the "C-U-LaTour" farewell tour:

Either way, Ministry fans and collectors can pick and choose from an impressive offering of awesome Al Jourgensen and Ministry swag that, very much like Uncle Al, is only getting better with age!

  1. This auction sucks for those of us that have no money....:'(

    1. Let me guess...last Ministry album ever? Ya right Al ...

  2. Hey remember that time that we blew a lot of money for VIP passes at the Dallas C-U-Latour because we thought it was the last tour? And got screwed over by the venue on our seats and access? Yeah - that was awesome.
