Killing Joke –  UK tour 2012

Industrial Rock Weirdos Killing Joke – bring back the crazy. 

Emerging from the late 70s as a formidable force of social unrest, political revolt and spiritual corruption Killing Joke have transgressed and transcended various intense musical trends to remain vital and relevant. Whereas their contemporaries have either disappeared or become parodies of themselves. Killing Joke seemingly took Hunter S Thompson's maxim that 'when the going gets weird, the weird turn pro' to it's illogical and intuitive end and as a result never really stopped their process of becoming. 

While their albums might have become a little less stark and spine shilling that those earlier records, if their performances of 2011, are anything to go by… they remain at their ugly ageing best when shamanically throttling a large crowd's kundalini via megawattage and dodgey stagecraft. 

They're important, unique and wonderful. Buy the ticket, spill the beer, stain the t-shirt, compromise your hearing and learn something.
