Killing Joke vocalst goes AWOL
2012-08-08 by AStableReference | 42 Comments
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.

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.

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.

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.

Except The Cult Apparently. I've never heard them I don't think. How are they? They sound kinda shitty.
