Killing Joke at the Palladium

Killing Joke have been cited as an influence by the likes of Faith No More, Tool, Korn, Nirvana, Lamb of God and Nine Inch Nails. This legendary British outfit will be taking the stage at the Palladium Club on Oct. 9.

Killing Joke was founded in 1978 by singer Jaz Coleman and drummer Paul Ferguson, who had left The Matt Stagger Band to try their hand in a new project. Bass guitarist Martin “Youth” Glover and guitarist Kevin “Geordie” Walker completed the lineup. The band’s debut EP Turn to Red promptly came out in 1979 and brought them to the attention of the late, great British DJ John Peel, who gave their new sound lots of airplay on his BBC Radio 1 program.

Killing Joke started out as a post-punk band. Their first, eponymous album from 1980, which leaned more towards heavy metal, made it clear that this classification was a little hasty. But then Night Time (1985) and Brighter Than a Thousand Suns (1986) toned it down a tad.

Killing Joke have had to take any number of sabbaticals on account of Jaz Coleman’s idiosyncrasies. In 1982 Coleman, Geordie and Youth decamped to Iceland to survive what they claimed was the impending apocalypse. Their studio albums are recorded “when the time is right” and their lineup has been something of a revolving door affair.
