New Entry: Phobophobes Drop New Single "Advertise Your Life"

London indie rockers Phobophobes have dropped their new single "Advertise Your Life".

Their debut A/A Advertise Your Life / Make A Person will be released on April 27 through RIP Records. Pre order it here.

Speaking about the track, frontman Jamie Taylor explains: "everyone who logs in and signs up to social media is throwing themselves into a limelight created by themselves and other people on it. The creators just give us a template, we do all the work for them. It’s absurd, but it’s definitely happening. The song isn’t directly about social media, but, with a title like that - it definitely sets a certain scene. An interesting way of listening to the lyrical content of the song is to imagine that it was written before social media. ‘advertise your life’ suggests your life is for sale , the song is telling the listener how much you think its worth ‘the world finds love in those trousers never worn, in the jacket lining where the pockets torn’ is quite a key lyric as it suggests the song is a ballad. a very dark, empty ballad."

New Entry: Ministry Air "The Game Is Over" Previously Unreleased Song From 1983

In April 18 (aka Record Store Day), Cleopatra Records will release Ministry Trax! Box, an expansive new Ministry collection.

The 7 disc/1 LP Ministry Trax! Box collects 12 inch singles, remixes, rarities, and previously unreleased material from Wax Trax!-era Ministry and Al Jourgensen-related side projects (Revolting Cocks, Pailhead, 1000 Homo DJs).

In late 1983, after completing the With Sympathy  tour, Ministry hunkered down at Pierce Arrow Recorders in Evanston, IL, to write and demo new music. Four songs were tracked in what would be just about the last gasp of the band’s first incarnation. The band’s singer/guitarist/keyboardist Alain Jourgensen, keyboardist Robert Roberts, and drummer Stephen George were joined by touring bassist Brad Hallen to work on the songs "The Game Is Over," "Let’s Be Happy," "Same Old Scene," and "Wait," none of which were ever officially released.

The collection features material previously released on the Twelve Inch Singles and Side Trax compilations, as well as the out-of-print Black Box — Wax Trax! Records: The First 13 Years box set. But there are previously unreleased demos, as well as long-sought material such as “I’ll Do Anything For You,” the With Sympathy-era track that Al Jourgensen recently shared online.

The box set also includes three expanded Revolting Cocks albums on CD, plus a bonus 12-inch, six-song vinyl live LP recorded by Ministry in Chicago in 1982. 

Listen to the brilliant "The Game Is Over (demo 1983)" below and pre-order  your box here.

Have you given into the man, or are you just giving him a bit of ground to keep the dream alive? We recorded it pretty much live with some guitar and vocal overdubs... apparently Cuffed and Collared also has S&M connotations, which we weren't aware of. But that's fine by us."
