Jaz Coleman selects his 13 favourite albums

In a funny way the two Johns – John Peel and John Lydon – were responsible for Killing Joke bursting onto the world stage in such a short period of time. John Lydon, we got a tape to him, he was friends with Youth and he became so passionate about Killing Joke and talked about it in the press a lot. We kind of got friends to stand in front of the BBC and push the first EP into Peel’s hand as he walked in, and Peel thought it was a set up or joke, a famous band masquerading under a different name, which is why he dropped by the first Peel session to see who we were. So between these two, it was only ten weeks from us getting together to the first gig selling out, it happened really fast.
