Lard

Lard is one of several Ministry side projects -- this one featuring Dead Kennedys vocalist Jello Biafra. Not surprisingly, The Last Temptation Of Reid (arguably the best representation of the band) isn't too far removed from mid-period Ministry, with Biafra's hardcore vocals and politically-charged lyrics at the forefront. The project isn't officially done though it seems increasingly unlikely that new material is forthcoming.
