Two CD set. 2013 collection from the British Post-Punk legends fronted by Jaz Coleman. With a fierce intelligence plus a thirst for esoteric knowledge that matches a music that is visceral and almost spiritual in its primal spirit, Killing Joke are like no other band. This is a group who came out of Punk and then set out on one of the most remarkable and idiosyncratic journeys ever. The Singles Collection 1979 -2012 captures their ever-evolving story with a series of dark, apocalyptic songs, they have successfully combined Disco and Funk and a shamanic wisdom with the dark side of the Punk fall-out. Their influence has been enormous, with an unlikely roll-call of musicians taking their cues from the KJ catalogue - from Nirvana to most modern American Metal to many DJs and dance music mavericks. few, however, coming close to the band's innate power. 33 tracks.
