REVOLTING COCKS / Big Sexy Land (1986)

This début album sounds dated now but when you put it into context of the scene during the mid 80s, it was definitely treading new ground.  I revisit it from time to time but not nearly as often as subsequent albums.
It's dominated by the same bass line, samples and repetition of synthesized beats they’d eventually put to better use years later.
I can’t recommend it to anyone who isn't interested in the history of industrial dance / EBM because that’s solely where its limited charms lie.
Resident Cocks were Luc Van Acker, Richard 23 and Al Jourgensen.
