Details of Revolting Cocks and the Ticket Luck value
Those who have interest in music they must be aware from the Revolting Cocks, which is also known as RevCo. It is an American industrial band that began as a musical side-project for Alain Jourgensen and Luc Van Acker.
It was the year of 1985 when the group was founded by Al Jourgensen and Luc Van Acker, along with Patrick Codenys and Richard 23 of Front 242.
There is uncertainty about the origin of the group's name. One story claims that the name was the result of the original lineup participating in a night of extremely heavy drinking which resulted in a bar owner throwing the drunk group out and calling them a bunch of revolting cocks. Another, possibly equally mythical, tale goes that Al Jourgensen and Chris Connelly were drinking in a bar where they were accused by girls who overheard their discussion and called them revolting cocks. Still another rumor is that the name was originally that of a Belgian street gang based in Brussels.
Band lost Richard 23 and Patrick Codenys due to creative differences the group's remaining two members were increased by a rapidly changing set of musicians centered on Chris Connelly, Paul Barker, Duane Buford, and Bill Rieflin with around twenty others as irregular contributors or guest artists.
After the first single they quickly released their 1st album Big Sexy Land in 1986, followed by a live album You Goddamned Son of a Bitch in 1987 and Beers, Steers, and Queers in 1989. After a lengthy suspension, Linger Ficken' Good, was released in 1993 this would be the Cocks' last album for over 10 years.
The first album was a mix of industrial, dance and techno, with dominating sampling and strong synthesized beats. The live album, with the change in personnel, featured a return to Ministry like industrial the Big Sexy Land tracks planted in shouting and noise. This trend continued on Beers, Steers and Queers, layering sample over sample and pushing ever further into distortion. Linger Ficken' Good was released by Sire records and is a meeker affair, most tracks returning to the less layered material and only occasionally producing Ministry noise.
In 2004, the band released loops of Prune Tang to disappointing responses from fans. An album titled Purple Head was due in 2004, but was delayed until 2006 with a change in title, Cocked & Loaded. The first single, Caliente (Dark Entries), a cover of sorts of Dark Entries by Bauhaus, with vocalist Gibby Haynes, was featured on the soundtrack to Saw II in 2005.
The Revolting Cocks are also known for their contrary lyrics and obscene live shows, which made them a target for angry moralists in the late '80s and in early '90s. In the mid '80s, their song No Devotion was put on the PMRC's banned list, and in 1990, Britain's Home Secretary Douglas Hurd tried to stop the band from performing in the UK by refusing them work permits. They have also been offensive to the songwriters and performers in which they chose to cover and satire, such as Olivia Newton-John and Rod Stewart .
