Great price for the "new" Killing Joke CD.

Killing Joke: Jaz Coleman (vocals, keyboard); Geordie Walker (guitar); Youth (bass instrument); Paul Ferguson (drum).

Born out of the fires of England's first wave of post-punk, proto-industrial Killing Joke was always somehow apart from their contemporaries. Their music was harsher, their lyrics were angrier, and they had a penchant for heavy metal's guitar thunder. Those things never changed, and their sound never softened. Over the years, however, Killing Joke has incorporated dance and techno tropes, allowing them to vent at new and varied audiences. In 2003, the band's original line-up of Jaz Coleman, Geordie, and Youth reunited, backed by Raven and former Nirvana drummer/Foo Fighters leader Dave Grohl.

Need I say, one of my favourite bands...brilliant peel sessions, and such an influence on other artists and much respected within the music industry despite their notoriety

Wow great find wedge. Used to love 'em, haven't played any in donkeys years, but you've just inspired me!

EDIT: Just found Love Like Blood on YouTube, what a track, completely forgot how great they were.

Were?! Still are, 2 great shows in London last October, reformed original line up, new album being recorded for a summer release....no sign of letting up for Killing Joke!....the sad death of bassist Raven led to the original lineup getting together for the first time since 1982.

Great stuff .........used to have these sessions on tape.......long may they go on.....:thumbsup:

Another great find Andy :thumbsup::)

Top find.Great band. Heat and Rep added
#12
Ah yes 1979, 14 years old and listening to John Peel and supposedly fast asleep (on a school night!!!) as far as mum & dad were concerned :roll:

Pssyche was a song I couldn't remember the name of for decades... :whistling:
#13
There used to be a Scottish poet as well that sticks in the mind - Hector Nichol?
#14
Great find! I also have the 1979 session on some rotting old cassette, recorded whilst pretending to be asleep on a school night.
KJ were the first band I ever saw. It was at the Ashton-U-Lyne Metro, bloody hell, they were LOUD! I was 14 & it kick started my life.

Funny finding this today, I put one of their t-shirts on this morning... Must be fate...

Would be worth sending an email through to the webmaster at this site http://www.anirrationaldomain.net/concertfile/concertfile.html if you have any details of that gig at Ashton as there is nothing in the gigography section on that. What was the metro by the way? Is it a former name for The Witchwood or is it another venue entirely?

Hello mate, I will do cheers. The Ashton Metro used to be a cinema. Like many seminal places from my youth it closed down many moons ago. I'm pretty sure I still have the ticket somewhere in my 'Happy Box', I'll have to dig it out to find the exact date... ;-)

Just shows ya what 30 years can do to a teenage brain :oops:

Now I'd like to listen to one of his recordings which contains the words Creamy Pumpkins (by Ivor Cutler) again
#19

That would be excellent, i too keep all my ticket stubs...only times I have been to Ashton Under Lyne is to see The Chameleons play when they reformed in 2000 at The Witchwood.

They are sounding better than ever, the two shows at Kentish Town Forum last October was the best I have seen the Joke play since 1991.

Jaz seems more youthful on stage than I have seen him in years, lost his belly...in fact now they are back to the original lineup again I would say they seem totally revigoured. Keep your eyes out for a new album this coming summer (although knowing KJ's potted history never expect anything!....its been one hell of a bumpy ride for the band..expect the unexpected or expect nothing is what fans think!)

Having Big Paul back hitting the toms again is amazing, definitely the missing link.
#28
Voted hot. It's weird as I dug out my old 12" copies of "Love Like Blood" & "Adorations" last week, remembered how great KJ sounded and then immediately ordered "Night Time", "Brighter Than A Thousand Suns" and "Pandemonium" on CD.

If that was this one supporting Joy Division what an awful gig to have been kicked out from!....I only could have dreamed of being even 13 then to have witnessed such a wonderful gig...

Can you imagine, a couple of months before Ian Curtis's death seeing Joy Division on one of their last few gigs before they were due to hit the States for their first American tour..supported by KJ fresh with their debut album and Factory Records A Certain Ratio also with their debut! All for £2.50....still you have to take into account the price of Mars Bars, the average pint of bitter, pork scratchings and a loaf of bread into account...come on you oldies lets get all this into proportion :-D

You can't put a price on that gig. Amazing.
You pay more now to get into your local to watch some 16 year olds ham out some Nirvana covers.

I reckon as an easy rule of thumb you have to double the figure every 10 years to be approximately in the ball park for past and present values of money.

So £2.50 in '79 would be £20 in 2009 which would be fairly reasonable to see an up and coming band these days I guess.

I stopped going to concerts once they cost more than a CD...:oops:

Of course nowadays that would stop me seeing any band at all :whistling:

I used to have a mate called "Brian" and he was bigger than most of the bouncers and looked a lot meaner as well. Used to really be a laugh when we went to clubs and the bouncers were all worried looking and saying... "alright mate?" funny as hell :roll:
