Al Jourgensen Going Pop With New Band Surgical Meth Machine
Surgical Meth Machine's self-titled debut album was recorded at Jourgensen's home studio in Burbank, California with longtime engineer Sam D'Ambruoso. The frontman had been eyeing last September for release, but the band has pushed the date back to later this year.
The 57-year-old says of the release: "There's a couple of real poppy things on there, which brings me full circle, because, literally, I don't give a f*** anymore. So I'm actually almost acknowledging that first horrible pop record I did in 1983. I'm crooning on some songs, I've got some pop songs on there, and then there's just brutal assault for the rest of it.
"It's a very dichotomous record, but it's me, and I'm acknowledging everything that's been me through, like, the last 35 years. Let's just throw my balls on the table and hope somebody doesn't have a meat cleaver running." Read more here.
