Killing Joke vocalist Jaz Coleman has reportedly gone missing after posting a Facebook message cancelling the band's plans to tour with and insulting the Cult and the Mission without consulting the rest of the band.
The post, since deleted, read
“It gives me great pleasure to announce the cancellation of the upcoming gigs with The Cult and The Mission. Frankly, playing at a gig with The Cult never appealed to me in the first place.
“Gatherers would only get to listen to a one-hour set. Then there would be a problem with the dressing room and witnessing The Cult charge the fans $200 per head for a meet and greet.
“Lastly, all their songs suck! They clearly have no integrity (they refer to their hometown as LA)."
The official statement from the rest of the band can be read below.
That sounds like Jaz Coleman.
woah, he just inflicted some malicious damage on the cult
Yup, been missing for some time now.
Digging: Marilyn Manson - Born Villain
Love dudes that speak their mind like that. Hopefully he is alright though
lol he rules
Digging: Stereolab - Transient Random-Noise Bursts with Announcements
Wow, anyone know why he did that?
Digging: Paavo - Paavo
Good for him cuz the Cult sucks donkey balls.
Digging: Demilich - Nespithe
I love Jaz due to his tendency to say and do such things. Like moving to Iceland to avoid the apocalypse... and then to New Zealand to avoid... well the other apocalypse.
He's quite a nut.
"It gives me great pleasure to announce the cancellation of the upcoming gigs with The Cult and The Mission."
lol sounds like kind of a douche but that was funny to read.
Sounds like a cool guy.
The more interviews and comments you see from the guy it becomes pretty clear he's kind of a pompous, crazy, egomaniac. It makes for interesting music, though.
Sounds like someone I would drink with.
Digging: Gucci Mane - World War 3, Vol. 1: Lean
but on the way to the bar he would cancel your drinking plans, posting a facebook status where he announces the cancellation and takes great pleasure in doing so.
Yeah right a true bro wouldn't do that.
Before going missing without a trace.
Digging: Daylight Dies - A Frail Becoming
Random music related news moment of the year.

you couldn't pay me $200 to meet/greet the cult
Digging: RVIVR - The Beauty Between

Digging: Tullycraft - Lost in Light Rotation
@Sat I would definitely do it for the money. Could just insult them and leave $200 richer.
Should listen to The National then.
Baseline listen to Eve 6 plz
"Should listen to The National then."
Hahaha I like The National but that is still funny.

Digging: Bolt Thrower - ...For Victory
Hope he didn't really diss The Mission, I like them
I hate Killing Joke.
Digging: Current 93 - All the Pretty Little Horses
My preferred era of Killing Joke was their early 80s stuff. Haven't really been as in to their stuff post their self titled 2003 album, so if you're judging them based on their latest work try going back to their first couple of albums.
Killing Joke Rules.
His Statements Rule
Everything here Rules.
Except The Cult Apparently. I've never heard them I don't think. How are they? They sound kinda shitty.
You may have heard the song "Fire Woman" before and just never knew who it was.
Fire Woman > Bad Girlfriend
old news, but still the funniest thing I've read in weeks
Digging: High Power - High Power
This is fucking hilarious, my favorite news about him was when he went out missing in the desert on purpose
ahahahahahahaaha, I've put off listening to this band for too long!
but no longer!
Relistened to the S/T (both) and damn it feels good
