Acid Horse

~ Group


Acid Horse was a one-off collaborative side project between two industrial music pioneers, Ministry and Cabaret Voltaire. Only one single, "No Name, No Slogan", was released in 1989 on Wax Trax! records. The band name is a combination of the slang terms for LSD (acid) and heroin (horse), as well as a play on the title of the then-popular acid house movement.

As with many other Ministry side projects, such as PTP and the Revolting Cocks, the band member's identities are masked by pseudonyms. The members are as follows:

  • Alien Dog Star - Al Jourgensen
  • Gallopin' Scorpiosaddlebutt - Chris Connelly
  • Biff - Stephen Mallinder
  • Tennessee King - Paul Barker
  • Harold Sandoz - Richard H. Kirk

Musically, Acid Horse resembles fellow Ministry side project PTP, in that it blends an upbeat dance-like electronic rhythm with catchy guitar-work. The lyrics come off in a serious, yet slightly comical tone - a trademark of many Ministry side projects.
