Never Found in the '80s: Killing Joke
Return of Never Found Live Bonus Week continues with UK's Killing Joke. When I profiled this band in June 2013 I mentioned the intensity of lead singer Jaz Coleman. I think this video helps demonstrate what I was talking about. I saw Killing Joke a couple of times back in the 80s and Mr. Coleman was really something to watch.
Here the band plays ‘The Wait' off their self-titled debut album from 1980. The footage is from a concert they performed in Germany in 1985.
Killing Joke released their 15th studio album, ‘Pylon', last October and were still performing live, when, in January, they announced they were cancelling their North American tour due to the illness of one of the band members.
