Al Jourgensen's lengthy career and massive output over the past 20 years could fill several volumes of tales and more than a gig of downloads. Aside from Ministry, his best-known and most-beloved side project is undoubtedly the Revolting Cocks, which includes Jourgensen's longtime collaborator, Paul Barker; Belgian DJ Luc Van Acker; Chris Connelly of Fini Tribe; Chemlab's Martin Atkins; and guests from Gibby Haynes of the Butthole Surfers to Jello Biafra of the Dead Kennedys. Jourgensen is touring in support of Ministry's new album, Rio Grandé Blood, which is basically one long anti-Bush administration screed. In fact, Jourgensen has devoted much of his recent career to opposing President Bush, continuing his anti-Bush passion from the original Gulf War. Ministry's 1992 song "N.W.O." is about that conflict; Jourgensen retooled it into this year's "N.O.W." — no W, get it? But Jourgensen, who's currently working on his Ph.D. in history, says he'll soon be hanging up his microphone for a different medium — as a college professor.

Ministry joins the Revolting Cocks and Pitbull Daycare at Revolution, 200 W. Broward Blvd., Fort Lauderdale. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $27.50. Call 954-727-0950, or visit
