KILLING JOKE / HA! (1982)

Live E.P that was originally only available on 10” and Cassette.  If you have that 10” I will throw moderate amounts of money at you in exchange for it.  There are only 6 tracks (the CD reissue adds an extra 3 tracks, which are really from the Birds of a Feather EP).  Killing Joke are a formidable force live; when Jazz Coleman stares into your soul with those eyes of his you’ll never forget it.  Obviously that can’t be reproduced on a recording, nor do you get a sense of the tribal bonding that takes place through the music and the delivery.  It's not an essential purchase because the sound is a bit shit at times but it has a few good moments.

Songs on Note: Sun Goes Down (Live); Unspeakable (Live)

2½ someone's got you sussed out of 5
