Don't forget The Godfathers Valentine's Day Massacre as another date for Feb 2010!
If Karen Carpenter had eaten Mama Cass' sandwich they'd both still be alive today!

Likewise - probably my second fave band . BUT.......... their last two albums I have found to be a bit samey - they're good .....but I wish Jaz would drop the shouting all the time and just sing now and again . I liked the Pandemonium album , lots of variety and good songs on that , but since then they seemed to have just aimed at pure loud noise .......... if it was Motorhead I could understand it , but I think sometimes they sell themselves short . I think by any other band the last two would be good albums , but for Killing joke , they're merely fairly good . Having said that I'll get any new album anyway .
All quiet ..........

I agree with you Jon. The last two albums have not been their best. I'm hoping they go for a more commercial sound this time too.

Think Jaz fucked his voice a long time ago!
Hosannas was a very powerful album but I think some of the songs were just too long.

Have just listened to the Universe B song on Youtube ........ its far more reminiscent of Pandemonium era ....... he sings on that one , but it was a Hossanna's song , or would have been if it wasn't left off the album - probably didn't fit in with the rest of the material . More like this one I hope in future . I still do like them a lot , but the albums more recently haven't lived up to the hype , and thats the pity of it . Seems like a few people hear others say how this ???? is their best ever , so they all play along and say the same . they're still better than most bands out there , but I think they sell themselves short .
All quiet ..........

Did you see them with "Youth" back on bass and Big Paul behind the kit last year? It's different but I wouldn't say there's something missing!
