In the mid-1980s, when harsh, angular dance beats were coiling around unrepentant noise as Industrial music, Revolting Cocks created a muddy mess of what was often quite polished by others. Their approach to alienated dance beats, forceful basslines and vocal belligerence is a loosely assembled mess of aggression. The combined talents of Al Jourgensen (Ministry), Luc Van Acker and Richard 23 (Front 242) created some of the most confrontational music Wax Trax! Records had seen. Later work with artists William Rieflin, Chris Connelly, Paul Barker and others contributed to their sound as they incorporated everything from rap to thick, almost Metal Guitar approaches. Their legendary status is justified. Few bands have ever created a sound so nasty.
