    Suspicious Minds

    He Came From Memphis - The original Panther Burn

    Every few years, some moral watchdog or another floats the idea that a certain type of music is the work of the devil. Whether it's the earliest "jass" traditions of New Orleans' Congo Square, the hot honking of Louis Jordan's jump blues, or the mech...

    Pleasure of the Andes - The return of Yma Sumac

    Al Jourgensen, it seems, really wants to be Buck Satan. The Ministry founder has left a lot of alter egos behind -- he's no longer Alien or Alain Jourgensen, although as his band's co-producer he's still Hypo Luxa -- but it's clear that his part-time...
