While his prodigal step-child, RevCo is out on the North American LuBriCaTouR promoting the September 29th (13th Planet) release of "Sex-O MiXXX-O", Uncle Al Jourgensen has hooked up with guitarist Mark Thwaite (Mission UK, Peter Murphy, Tricky, Mob Research) in the studio, collaborating on several projects simultaneously. Jourgensen and Thwaite, both long-time friends of Killing Joke/Ministry bassist Paul Raven, who passed away October 20, 2007, joined forces recently at Jourgensen's 13th Planet compound in Texas on RevCo projects and another Jourgensen side project.
Thwaite brings his remix skills to RevCo's upcoming "Sex-O MiXXX-O" on Abundant Redundancy (Dambuster Metalmorphosis Mix), to be released digital only as a bonus supplement to the physical release. Thwaite's previous remix credits include Gary Numan, Methodman and Licky to name a few.
Additionally, Thwaite collaborated with Ministry/RevCo guitarist Sin Quirin on Filthy Senoritas, for the upcoming RevCo release slated for Spring 2010.
But the crowning jewel of the Jourgensen/Thwaite collaboration is the newly penned as yet untitled Christmas Song to be released via digital download exclusively this Thanksgiving. 13th Planet will release a digital stream of the track October 20th, 2009 to celebrate the memory of their "favorite pirate" Paul Raven on Ministry's Myspace www.myspace.com/ministrymusic.
In tandem, RevCo's performance October 20th in Jacksonville, FL will host a video collage of Paul Raven's life by long-time friend, Dean Karr at the RevCo LuBriCaTouR show.
RevCo's LuBriCaTouR featuring Jim Rose, Blownload and Left Spine Down is part of Live Nation's Club Passport campaign http://promo-img.livenation.com/lnus/clubpassport/
