Well, that puts on massive great hole in the “original” Killing Joke line-up for the Singles Tour.
Dear Friends and Gatherers, I am extremely disappointed to have to announce that I am unable to participate in the upcoming Australia/New Zealand Killing Joke tour.
I’ve been suffering from an increasingly acute tendonitis, no doubt brought on by hours on concentrated scalpel use whilst restoring ancient sculptures. Nothing to do with my using the wrong end of heavy drum sticks, nor twisting my arm drilling granite, swinging a hammer and chisel, nor my years of blacksmithing!
You seem to have to install some bloatware to get this going, and I just can’t be bothered… If you do, please let me know what it was like. (If they had tried a bit harder on the name, I may have bothered.)
Though the tragic death of Joy Division singer Ian Curtis cut the band’s career woefully short, the legacy of the group who pioneered the ‘70s post-punk movement lives on through countless reproductions in clothing, art and music. Now, from Mighty Box Games—an independent Maltese game company—comes, what else? A videogame inspired by the brooding rockers titled Will Love Tear Us Apart.

The Inca Babies have had an hugely successful career and as life always does, has thrown them ups and downs which they have worked through and kept the essence of the band strong, well and very much alive!
The Inca babies are widely loved and have focused their sound on an American perspective keeping it trashy and wildly punkie, On hearing them for the first time, I was impressed by their cross over sound and I could hear elements of Rock and roll, Psycho-billy, Rockabilly and Punk, infused into a melting pot of directionally steered cord structures that gives it that Inca babies touch.
Couldn’t agree more, a Sisters of Mercy shaped sack of shite for an LP (although I quite like More).
I have a feeling this one is going to get me into trouble, but hear me out, OK?
Both music editor Chris Gray and I agreed that the debut Sisters of Mercy album First and Last and Always was simply the greatest goth album in existence. While we were compiling the list that it topped, we both confessed that we preferred Floodland as a work, even though FALAA is clearly the better and more influential album.
Lots of chatter about the new Peter Murphy LP…
Peter Murphy may be on the road playing Bauhaus songs at the moment, but his next batch of new music won’t be far behind.
The singer is eyeing an early 2014 release for “Lion,” the follow-up to 2011′s “Ninth.” The album was hatched during sessions with producer Youth, an old friend who Murphy got together with “just to see how it went. We did it ourselves, just like a week to see what would go over, and basically we did the album in four and a half days. It was like dropping off the edge of a cliff and no turning back, and it was really exciting.”
