Half Notes: Killing Joke – Killer Joke, What's This For …!, Ha: Live, Revelations (2005)

Share this:

Remasters for the seminal post-punk godfathers of what would become “industrial.” (Not really industrial, but it inspired bands like Ministry and Nine Inch Nails, who somehow got wrongly lumped in with bands like Einsturzende Neubauten and Skinny Puppy, who really are industrial.) Unique here is the first-time-ever-on-CD Ha! Killing Joke Live, which documents the Revelations era of the band. All four of these 2005 releases were remastered and featured a handful of bonus tracks. And for those who like “there’s no justice” stories, Killing Joke, touring in support of their second self-titled album, ended up opening for Motley Crue, of all damn bands. Are you kidding me? Motley Crue?
