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 Crues 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.
