A couple more Alt. contributions to finish the week.
A bit of Killing Joke and one of my favourites. From August 1986 and with the lighter, more commercial sound, this was the lead single off their sixth studio album, “Brighter than a Thousand Suns”
Produced by Chris Kimsey with a Julien Mendelsohn mix, it’s gentle but powerful. The choice of the video being set in a Cathedral was apt.
Backed by the album cut, “Exile” revealing the more expansive sound and use of synths. A bit like the track “Goodbye to the Village” (B-side of Sanity) with a similar theme, as dark as Joy Division.
It was backed by Stewart Levine produced Ecstasy in an Extended Mix, the bass juddering along helps with the build up. Quite similar to “Love Like Blood” with Jaz’s demented laugh and the bass driven breakdown, a great 12″ mix.
