Killing Joke – “Ha” (10 ” Vinyl)

ImageKeeping the Killing Joke connection going with this 6 track Live Album from 1982. Recorded at Larry’s Hideaway in Toronto this show-cased new bassist , Paul Raven (RIP), who had replaced Youth that year. Described as being “the sound of the Earth vomiting”, their bleak lyrics kept with the theme of the impending collapse of society. This live album is a good introduction to the raw energy of early Joke with stabs of keyboards and the wild tenor sax on “The Pandys Are Coming” The atmospheric “Unspeakable” is my favourite.Legend Conny Plank under his real name of Konrad Plank co-produced it.
