Killing Joke

Post by jetblacksdad » 12 Jun 2015, 12:50

New album due September - 14 tracks completed, Geordie calls it their Heavy Metal Album.
Paul Ferguson has broken his ankle so is not able to drum (seeing him for a nosh up tomorrow all being well).
KJ playing Corby on Thursday - 250 tickets and sold out but playing Metal Hammer awards on Monday too.

And for those that know him, Mike Coles has done the artwork. Always good news!

This will bem,use some people on here who like KJ, but my favourite album is Absolute Dissent.

Would you call that in any way heavy metal?

How did Geordie break his ankle? They don't seem to have much luck with illness and stuff do they? :)
'Peaches - A Chronicle of The Stranglers from 1974 to 1990', out 2014 on Soundcheck Books.

Think I'll go for a stroll in the trees.

Been offerd a free ticket for the Metal Hammer awards on Monday which is my day off, from a friend who won a competiton and whos going. He mentioned the bands playing and Killing joke. I don't really know what to make of them. I have seen them once at Sonisphere festival 2009 i think it was. I only have the one CD that Rodders made me on here,listen to it on and off. Its got about 70 songs on it, and some good ones. Never thought about actually going to see them live, but seeing as its a freebie, i maybe converted by the end of the day.

It was Big Paul Ferguson who broke his ankle Bob.

Great news that another album is on its way. They really have hit a vein of form of late and producing quality music with each release.

Thank you for that JBD. Agree about Mike Coles. TBH I look forward to a Killing Joke release much more than a Stranglers one these days.

Not sure what to make of 'Heavy Metal' either. :shock:

Hopefully an autumn tour too.

Can't wait for this. I'm sure it will be a belter as long as the songs aren't like This World Hell. I didn't like that one. I'm hoping for a more commercial sound but it sounds like it will be more heavy again.

How about getting in to their next Glasgow show for free if you still have your ticket from the last gig? Make up a bit for the early finish cos of the power cut.

Think The HM album is a bit tongue in cheek. Not heard anything yet but Mike Coles tells me that it's very tribal sounding. Paul seems to have done a great job. Had a nice catch up with him on Saturday. He's getting about a bit and keeping his spirits up.
I'm more excited by this KJ album than anything they have released for a long while. Let's hope huh?

Cheers again JBD.

They've just announced a tour for the end of October, beginning November. Definitely Birmingham and possibly London for me. :grin:
