Every Thursday we delve into the archives of our old print venture, Ministry Magazine. We pick an issue and take a look at a highlight (or lowlight) with a modern eye.
This week we're onto Issue 11 of Ministry Magazine which came out in December 1998. As with most magazine's December issues, Issue 11 was full of end of year lists of "phat tunes" "classic quotes" and "stunning pics".
But December isn't just a time for looking back, but also looking forward to the year ahead, so with that in mind features focused on the stars of tomorrow, how to winter in Ibiza and the future of smoking weed - including a handy step-by-step guide on how to roll a cross joint (which must have been a real game-changer in a pre-Internet world).
But the article we've chosen to reprint today is about the controversy surrounding the cover art on Bob Sinclar's Paradise album. It seems the French playboy was the victim of censorship when his CD hit UK shores and he wasn't too pleased about it. Yes, we know we re-printed an interview with Bob only a few weeks ago, but lets face it, he's a funny guy - oh and he's headlining our club this weekend.
