"..pedal to the metal-full throttle, factory assembled menacing sound art.."
Resurrecting The Machine
THE WORDS: shockingly infantile, irreverent & irrelevant, riot inciting, anger inducing, anti-social, unashamedly un-p.c. , paranoid, narcissistic bullshit, barked and howled by someone who you think would have learned his fucking lesson by now. THE PERPS: COCKSURE-the bastard that once was “REVCO” deformed and dug up, re-animated and re-branded by CHRIS CONNELLY and JASON NOVAK .”Unfinished bizness” mutters Chris under his breath with a chuckle, then politely folding his arms and crossing his legs he whispers softly: “We’ll show these pussy-ass motherfuckers how it’s really done” adding with a serene smile “we’ll tell these ageing dinosaur fuckwads where to stick their dicks”
Hello, how are you?
What a strange opening gambit…! I’m okay, neither good nor bad
What are you currently listening to?
I am enjoying 'Good Kid, MAAD City' by Kendrick Lamar, like so many others are enjoying. Also the latest by DIE ANTWOORD, a mix tape called 'Bastard' by Tyler The Creator, 'MATANGI' by M.I.A. I have also been dipping back into 'The Notorious K.I.M.' by L’il Kim, which doesn’t ever age…
What's the story with the band name?
The name references my past romance with the Revolting Cocks and my current romance with the swagger and copious male energy of the new project.
Care to shed some light on your debut LP; theme, favorite track(s), the reason it's on Metropolis instead of Wax Trax (like the 12" single), etc? (..speaking of Wax Trax) It's great to hear they're starting up again do you know anything about this?
I think the themes are all pretty obvious even though they whiz past you pretty fast…all the old faves like aging tranny hookers, dreadful choices in the casino, woeful drug deals gone horribly wrong, car fires, carjacking, plastic surgery disasters and online porn… Throw in a dash of hacking and credit card fraud and you get the picture……
Do you thinks it's safe to say/possibly assume that the "Golden Era" of Industrial music is on it's way to making a substantial comeback?
I dunno…the Golden Shower Of Industrial Muzik for sure though!
Got any other projects we should know about?
I am helping my son build a LEGO brothel currently.
What movie would work best on mute while listening to you music?
... If you sync our album up with the movie 'White Chicks', it is uncanny how well it works: we actually planned it that way though….
You can only keep/listen to ONE album for the rest of your life ..which album would it be?
Okay..One album? Hmmm, careful what you wish for, I think it would have to be....”The Bagpipes And Drums Of Scotland” by the Gordon Highlanders, need I say more?
Are you living your dream?
Dreams too vast to explain perhaps?
Thanx Chris & Jason, and Rey too!
Cocksure recently released a "Golden Age Industrial Classic;]", and it's brand spankin' new, check that out right here...
8.25 out of 10
I'll keep this short, life was easier during childhood, mine had Revolting Cocks at their prime (I am old). I've needed a new comfort-nostalgic blanket for a while now, and Cocksure seem to be making things all better. Cocksure is Jason Novak (of Acucrack) and Chris Connelly (of MANY Industrial greats--including RevCo), the combination of these artists produces exactly what you would want to hear.
Classic ("Golden Age") Industrial music will never go out of style, there I've said it. There's something about an appropriate amount of clangy metal-electronic sounds grinding against harsh guitar riffs that always seems to work (when done right of course). 'TVMALSV' is Cocksure's debut full length (ala Metropolis), their debut single (on the other hand) came our via the newly resurrected (!) Wax Trax. Within these testosterone filled walls lays a window into the past (a better time for music;). You like this list, you like this;] Fans of PWEI and/or Prodigy are also sure to agree on a few tracks here too I think. 'TVMALSV' is pedal to the metal-full throttle, factory assembled menacing sound art. (If you get, you'll get it;)
Highly "If you like the words above, this is a no-brainer, go get this album now" Recommended
Standout Tracks: Alpha Male Bling (so "Acucrack-y"), Guilt Speed & Carbon (OMG this sounds like a b-side from the Black Box♥♥), Ah Don' Eat Meat, Bitch! (also "Black Box-y"/soo very gooood), TKO Mindfuck (Featuring Richard 23) (on repeat)
