KILLING JOKE / The Courtauld Talks (1989)

A recording of a lecture that vocalist Jaz Coleman gave 2 years previous, offering an insight into his motivations for recording the Outside the Gate (1988) album.
It’s largely spoken word but when Geordie Walker starts up with a repetitive acoustic riff, Jaz’s delivery begins to resemble a lyric structure.
It would've been a fascinating experience to witness live but I’m not sure it needed a separate release; a bundled 2nd disc with the Outside the Gate album would’ve been more relevant.
It’s hard to apply a rating because enjoyment is solely dependent on your feelings for Jaz, and his system of beliefs.

Songs of Note: It's one track lasting 66 mins.
