Back in the mists of time, namely the early eighties, you rarely got to see goth, alternative and post-punk bands on the TV – let alone playing live. And it is quite difficult to find high quality, complete versions of such performances (excepting the odd clip on an Old Grey Whistle Test compilation DVD).
So this Dark Circle Room post about Killing Joke’s two Tube appearances is very welcome. The shows, from late 83 and early 85, are Killing Joke at a great time, just after Raven (RIP) had joined the band.
I especially like the fresh-faced Jaz!
