Artist Biography Pailhead is a collaboration between Ian MacKaye (Minor Threat, Teen Idles, Fugazi, Embrace, etc.) and Ministry. The combo debuted in 1987 with the “I Will Refuse”/”No Bunny” 7”, and followed that with the Trait EP in 1988. (The Trait CD included both releases.) The music is fairly typical of Ministry circa The Land of Rape and Honey, over which MacKaye shouts his politically-inclined lyrics.
