Audio only. I made the fan vid, a slide show. It is from 2006, and it's "Frenzy" w/ "Hosannas from the Basements of Hell" in Europe. Levels are in the red, and it is quite fast, thrashy, and pulverizing all the way around.
I think it kicks ass, as good as any thrash or hardcore band out there nowadays. Or better. Would be amazing to see live.
First hour: Black metal punk / "D-beat black metal" - New Darkthrone, Bone Awl, Order of the Vulture, Iskra, Spite Extreme Wing, Merrimack, Alehammer, punk stuff that sounds black metal-y to me, black metal stuff that sounds punk.
Second hour: Dark, guitar-driven post-punk rock. Vex, UK Decay, S-Haters, no new wave, 45 Grave, Part 1, Warsaw, Killing Joke, Rubella Ballet, Action Pact, Rudimentary Peni, more.
Issue 32 of the UK’s finest, and only fake-fur covered (!) rock'n'roll zine Bubblegum Slut is out now and includes an in-depth interview with Killing Joke's Youth, conducted ahead of this month's original line-up shows.
...based on old 1980 Killing Joke/Joy Division flyer design. I already ordered one. Hope the quality isn't crap.
Also, below is an mp3 of the new (2008) Killing Joke song "Time Wave," live from Brussels a few days ago. It sounds like Motorhead / NWOBHM / The Complications / Leatherface / Born Dead Icons, as a lot of their recent stuff has tended to do. Has an unexpected metal/mosh-y breakdown near the end.
Last nite awesome. HOB Sunset is decorated really cool and is so big compared to Disney. Bars everywhere and plenty of places to hang out.
Our hook up there got us wristbands so we could sit off to the side of the standing crowd and still see! And we were able to cruise thru out the venue. aces!
Seems most every one was there. Celebs too. We Saw Dave Grohl and Pat Smear. And heard Morrissey was there.
The show was so full of energy. Jaz is an amazing performer. I just plain love him. His voice, his presence, his "look"....all of it. The rest of the guys looked great and rocked. I would have enjoyed a better selection of songs but there were some kickers fo sho! Requiem, 80's, Night Time, Money is Not our God (!), Communion, Whiteout, and lots more.
any setlists posted from any of the last few live shows?
im going to see KJ on thursday and well, i havent done the backcatalogue research i should have done. so instead of not knowing most of the show like i did last time, if i can get a general idea, i may enjoy myself just a little more..
this show in hollywood, is only one night, so maybe theyll just mix the two albums , assuming they are still playing two nights in every other city..
i was thinking, if i ever met Dave Grohl, i would have a hard time deciding whether i want him to sign the booklet from In Utero or KillingJoke's 2003 self titled... man, thats a tough choice.. and i like the foo fighters stuff since the first album but those two albums are still way better.
funny enough, both these designs would make sweet tattoos..
honestly, i love the song ZENNON. but im having a hard time figuring out what Zennon is?
google search leads me to understand ZENNON is a name. first or last, but both. but what does Jaz mean? i understand the song and have ideas what its about, i just need to have a better grasp. seriously, if its a name, why that name?
