4.0 out of 5 stars

on 2 February 2005
This is a pretty old recording from Chicago in 1987 re-released with a couple of tracks from a 12" single but if you like Industrial music this deserves to be heard. Considering how long ago this was recorded the sound quality of this release is excellent.
The RevCo lineup on this reads like a who's who of early Industrial - Al Jourgensen, Paul Barker, Chris Connelly, Bill Reiflin, Luc Van Acker and the impressively named Gina Tubetop! The music covers pretty similar territory to Land Of Rape And Honey period Ministry - jackhammer riffs, pounding, rythmic drums, distorted vocals, strange keyboard effects and samples - but the quality of the music is undenyable.
The album opens with a wall of feedback which eventually segues into the powerful Cattle Grind and away the band go, ploughing through a series of early classics. Highlights include superb live versions of We Shall Cleanse The World and 38, and Union Carbide is just plain Al Jourgensen weird, but the real stand-out tracks are the two that close the album proper - Attack Ships On Fire, complete with an extended drum intro and No Devotion. Fantastic.
The two extra tracks were recorded in either Glasgow or Texas (both are credited on different bits of the packaging) and include a run through of Stainless Steel Providers, a track written slightly later than the rest here plus a wonderfully ragged cover of P.I.L.
Anyone who likes the work of Al Jourgensen in his many guises will enjoy this re-release immensely.
