Al Jourgensen (Ministry, etc.) 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 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. To celebrate the memory of their "favorite pirate" Paul Raven 13th Planet will debut the track on October 20th, 2009 via Ministry's Myspace page.

Interesting. I definitely didnt see this coming.

Mark did a brilliant job with The Mission. Shame he wasnt given that great material to work with in the kingdom of Wayne Hussey
