A few months back the unreleased “Same Old Madness” was included on the reissue of Ministry’s classic Twelve Inch Singles 1981-1984. Unfortunately, it was not the version from the music video, but the softer “new-wave pop” version that was included. Yesterday, we saw another With Sympathy-era track unearthed — but they must be building snowmen in hell, because this time the track was released courtesy of bandleader Al Jourgensen himself, who has sadly and quite infamously put a distance between himself and his band’s early synthpop days.
The track Jourgensen posted Sunday was the 1983 song “Anything For You” — known to many fans as “I Will Do Anything For You” after it was played on tour in back in 1984 — as part of his ongoing “Ministry Mondays”.
Jourgensen referred to the track as a “rare, never-before-released song from With Sympathy.” What do you think? Do you prefer the Synthpop era Ministry? Al with dreads— or spiky hair and mascara?
