Product Description

Killing Joke started on the unemployment line. Whether fact or fiction, it was while waiting in line at a British unemployment office in late 78/early 79, that singer/keyboardist Jeremy "Jaz" Coleman ran into a friend and started discussing his musical aspirations. Upon hearing Coleman speak, the friend said, "I have someone you should meet," and later brought him to a London flat, where drummer Paul Ferguson was waiting. Just over 25 years since the release of their first album Killing Joke, the band return to the gig circuit on support slots for Motley Crue’s arena tours in June 2005. Following this tour, their albums, now newly remastered and with added bonus tracks, are being re-released. The artwork for each album has been cleaned up by original designer Mike Coles and all bonus tracks have been carefully chosen by the band themselves.

Format: Audio CD
Aside from their L.P. ' Extremities, Dirt...' this one is probably their most darkest. Running through the undercurrent of the making of this were internal squablles with Big Paul and Youth and Jaz's fear of an impending apocolypse that led him to flee to Iceland shortly after the records release to escape what he saw as the end of the world. As empire song entered the charts the rest of the band had to make do with replacing Jaz on Tv apperances with either a scarcrow or someone in a bee-keepers outfit.
Apart from all this the songs are excellent. Geordies guitar cutting a swathe and snaking in and out of the 'beating pulse like' drums and bass guitar, and the keyboards rumbling through on some tracks or leading like a pipers battle cry on 'The pandys are coming'

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Mr. J. L. Tickner on 2 Aug. 2005
Format: Audio CD
recently remastered and reissued this overlooked classic sounds even more intense and claustrophobic than before! The best way to describe this album is intense riffs and vocals coupled with danceable beats and a great bass groove. Stand out tracks are Empire Song, The Pandys are Coming and the fast punky Land of Milk and Honey. The remastering gives this album a new depth and clarity whilst still keeping the bleak edge

When I bought this album in 1982 I hated it.Now it is one of my favourites.It is true that the additional track could have been accompanied by Sun Goes Down, Birds Of A Feather etc. but you get them on Ha! I just add the related files to my iPod.

Revelations is a brutal record in every way. LSD featured heavily at the time( as folklore would have it) hence the strangeness of it all.Dregs is basically a studio jam where Jaz just makes the words up.

It took me 15 years to get into this record and I do not know why because it is awesome.

Standouts are Empire Song, Chop Chop and Chapter III.

Where the first two Killing Joke albums were and are still, utterly untouchable, with Revelations Killing Joke entered even darker territory. Paranoia of impending world destruction lead to Jaz running off to Iceland in abject terror.

Before he left, this album was unleashed. Kicking off with the slow crawl of the Hum you're immediately dragged kicking and screaming into a dark corridor down into a grey and rather paranoid world.

There's a more sparse nature to this record, yet it also showed the first signs that Youth was about to depart, the trademark bass lines are not quite as prevalent, perhaps fatigue, perhaps internal difficulties.

Either way, as a unit, this is still a cohesive work with some incredible songs 'The Hum', 'Empire Song', Pandys, Chop Chop, I could go on, but it also signalled a need for change, for me, with the inclusion of Dregs which is a bit of a throwaway track.

It is an essential purchase in the same way as the first two albums are, but perhaps not quite the cornerstone of a superb career, that shows no signs of waning just yet.

Put this album on,then listen to 1986's "Brighter than a thousand suns",and you would question yourself.'Is this the same band!' Both terrific L.P's. Revelations is a very edgy post punk affair,totally distorted and noisy,used to maximum effect,this is where 'Geordie' shows his guitar genius. You would either find this album irritating or wonderful,for me the latter.'The Pandys are coming' track,is about a non-existant land called 'Pandyssia' where all the dishonored are sent. See my review on "Brighter.."..as this is nicer on the ears..but has a post apocalyptic sound all the way through.
