Biography

1000 Homo DJs was one of many Ministry side projects from the 1980’s.

The projects first release was a single in 1988 of two Ministry outtakes from the Land of Rape and Honey album, entitled “Apathy” b/w “Better Ways”. The name supposedly came from WaxTrax! co-founder/co-owner Jim Nash. When he heard the songs, he said “No one’s gonna play this, it’s gonna take a thousand homo DJs to play this for anyone to buy it.”

“Apathy” was followed up by another single in 1990 featuring a cover of Black Sabbath’s “Supernaut”. The cover featured nine inch nail’s Trent Reznor on vocals and Rigor Mortis ’ and Ministry touring member Mike Scaccia on lead guitar. The B-side featured a track called Hey Asshole, written by Al Jourgensen and drummer Jeff Ward. The track features a droning bass line and a constant chant of “Hey! Asshole!” (with Jello Biafra, amongst others), while Ward does an impersonation of a cop.

The “Supernaut” single was eventually issued on CD with the entire “Apathy” single as a bonus, while all four songs were later re-issued on the 2004 Ministry compilation “Side Trax” with the bands other short lived side projects.

The members of 1000 Homo DJs are identified by pseudonyms in the “Supernaut” CD liner notes. The identities of most members are fairly certain.

* Buck Satan: Al Jourgensen
* Officer Agro: Jeff Ward
* Ike Krull: Mike Scaccia
* The Temple of Drool Choir: Mike O’Connell, Wes Kidd, Brian St. Clair, Herb Rosen, Joe Kelly, Jerry Rodgers
