In the first weekend of June 2017, the legendary Revolting Cocks reunite for two exceptional concerts in Europe. Dark Balloon has the honour to host one of these exclusive gigs in Retie (B), between Antwerp & Eindhoven.
Revolting Cocks is one of the most successful projects in the industrial scene.The band is a mixture of Belgian Electro masters FRONT 242 and the industrial superband MINISTRY, blended together by the genius of Luc Van Acker.
Their debut LP ‘Big Sexy Land’ was released in 1986 on the legendary Wax Trax label in Chicago. At that time, the band was formed by Richard 23 (FRONT 242), Al Jourgensen (Ministry) and Luc Van Acker. This masterpiece is a mix of the typical Wax Trax industrial sound, metal, pulsating synths & magnificent samples. The unique gig line up in Retie will be formed by Richard & Luc, added with Paul Barker & Chris Connelly, both Ministry. It was in the same setup the band did a very successful tour last year in the USA, hopping into six major cities.
The band will perform the entire album ‘Big Sexy Land’, of course completed with the most popular songs of later releases. Do you love metal, EBM, Industrial, Punk? Don’t miss this unique show!
