i love the old Revco sound also, i highly reccommended listening to Chris Conelly's account of all those records on his audio book

its also available as a normal book but i cant imagine that being nearly as good as having him tell the stories directly with his great scottish accent.

I cannot speak to the production workflow - which EQs and compressors were in-line, etc. What I can tell you is the following:

During and after his term on Arista, Al worked out of The Cars' studio in Boston, Syncro Sound. Via Syncro, Al met Perry Geyer and Brian Bothwell. Perry and Brian at some point started a dance/industrial project called Manufacture, which Jourgensen agreed to produce. They traveled to Chicago and recorded the single "Armed Forces" at Chicago Trax with engineer Steve Spapperi.

During the recording, Al copied samples and at least one sequence that Perry and Brian had made for Manufacture. The sequence he copied was subsequently released as Revolting Cocks' "You Often Forget."

I have the original samples to prove this.
