An uncharacteristically silly outtake from a very serious photo shoot.

Al Jourgensen, Ministry
… here’s a man who looks thoroughly intimidating no matter whether he’s happy or drugdead. Or both. And no, we have no idea what that object he’s brandishing is, either.

Blixa Bargeld of Einsturzende Neubaten

Reznor has mellowed somewhat in recent years, and is frequently sighted looking decidedly perky these days. Good for him.
Stephen Mallinder of Cabaret Voltaire

Early ’80s industrial icons looking very pleased about the prospect of dismantling civilization.
JG Thirlwell (and Lydia Lunch)
