Revolting Cocks – Linger Ficken’ Good

Revolting Cocks, aka RevCo, were a side project between Ministry’s Al Jourgensen, Luc Van Acker and Richard 23 from Front 242. Richard left and Chris Connelly (Finitribe) joined, along with Paul Barker, Bill Rieflin, and anyone else they could drag into the studio. Although not every song was humorous, I mostly associate RevCo with a certain tongue-in-cheek hilarity.

The great thing about the songs from their iconic Linger Ficken’ Good album is that they were huge. Big, fat basslines, barely distorted shouty vocals, flamboyant brass – as gargantuan and tacky as a neon sign.

I can’t find a proper clip of Crackin’ Up – just their memorable appearance on Beavis and Butthead.

The album wasn’t all fun and games, though. The first track, Gila Copter, is a perfectly sensible rock sludge infused with Timothy Leary.

Dirt, Creep and Rockabye could have appeared on any album by any of their other incarnations – but Mr Lucky has that swagger and sleaze that can only be RevCo.

They save the best for last with the title track: a nine-minute long jazz thing that’s mostly double bass and nothing else. A single repeating double-bass line perfect for annoying the neighbours. The voice samples are just ridiculous. I played it about two hundred times.
