Great band,i would quite likely of gone if i had known it was on.My fault for not checking the various Gig Guides.Oh well.

They did Pole Shift, Rapture, Fema Camp, In Cythera and Corporate Elect off the new album. Plus Chop Chop, Bloodsport, Change, Sun Goes Down and others I've forgotten already. Great gig. Best I've seen them play in Switzerland.

Cheers.

Thanks - I definitely need to get the new album on the iPod.

I'm a sucker for http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Killing_Joke_2003_(album) - especially with You'll Never Get to Me and House of Pain as the stand out tracks (IMHO).

Was great. One of my favorite bands for the last 30 years.Was surprised that there was more space in front of the stage then around the bar. Yeah, old people moshing...

You'll never Get to Me is kind of the 80's style but they always had a special unique style.

Re: Guest list for Killing Joke tonight

I saw them a couple of weeks ago in Strasbourg and they flounced off stage after ballsing up the end of Requiem, and didn't return for the scheduled encore (I was by the mixing desk and could see the setlist). I wondered if they might implode in the dressing room, but they obviously didn't.

The biggest issue is that I like listening to them - at home/car - but the wife doesn't - and always skips onto the next track if one of theirs comes up on shuffle

Had tickets for that gig but had to drop out. Youth has a blog going where he says this:

We are in Strasbourg in France near the border with Germany.

Everyone in band and crew are feeling pretty burnt out after last nights stupendous gig in Paris. Great food again ,

Tonight i almost left the stage as my bass amp blew a fuse, however i was trumped by Paul whose turn it was tonight to freak out when he smashed a bottle of beer by his kit and stormed off stage and then later threatened to leave the bus if Geordie swore at him again on stage, i understand how he feels as Jaz routinely swears at me onstage if play a note different from the record , i usually ignore him and turn up and play even more differently but sometimes the very public humiliation is too much. I miss that, when on the Pandemonium and earlier tours we had more of a psychedelic/spontaneous vibe to the performances, i think Jaz gets confused if we go off piste too much and also his classical work is very regimented and that spills into the band sometimes….If i could persuade the band, we would be doing a different set every night, but so far I had an idea last night that Geords liked, of getting a VJ in to do some psychedelic projection visuals while we play, will see how far this goes with rest of band and management.

Heh. Yeah I was at the front, absolutely knackered by the end. I had a green Malicious Damage t-shirt on.

Re: Guest list for Killing Joke tonight

Thank you Taratonga and who I think must be Johnny D for the first then the 2nd of tickets. Most of all for including us and making us feel welcome. Honestly was a great show. I can't think of anyone that age showing so much continued feeling and strength towards their music. One thing I hate about seeing an older/aging band is how it seems like they are just up there to collect some cash off their namesake, and just make the least of efforts.

This was not the case with the Joke last night. I haven't been to a concert in almost a year, except when I was in Ireland of course, in Switzerland where I enjoyed myself that much. Even if that guy was 20 I would think he was about to have a heart attack at any given time, because of the amount of intensity he put into his performance. My only complaint is that they spent a bigillion years doing a sound check(the club, not the group), and they still couldn't figure out how to put his mic levels to sound better then mush.

All the same I had a good time, with all that were there.

Re: Guest list for Killing Joke tonight

Aw, too bad i missed this,i hang out with them in prague a bit..

As per sound check,it's annoying when too long,but honestly,it's worth it,if you like your ears..last time i saw KJ live,the sound guy slacked and it was a nightmare. They are finicky with their sound requests and quirks...

Last time i was on their guest list,raven put me on it....sniff.rip raven.

Yeah the ringing is quite low today and we were close to the speakers. I just don't know the lyrics as much as others, and I think if I could hear more, I mean F' he was singing in english, it would've even been better.

Re: Guest list for Killing Joke tonight

Yea.. we were there too, right down the front getting thrown about. These guys have allways been a big part of my music al influence really , I play in a Swiss "rock" band but we are all really old punk rockers at heart, Stranglers, Clash and Killing Joke being in the top 3.
If you guys like KJ then for sure your gonna like us too (www.hulkcity.com) our EP solid state nation comes out this weekend (28th) ..spotify, amazon and so on.
We also play at Rock City in Uster on Saturday night & if anyone wants free tickets to our London Camden show on May the 11th, just ask, I got 30 comps for that night.

So lets debate ..
is KJ a punk or a rock band or where are they .. Post punk alternative maybe.
Or are unique?
