Killing Joke to release new live album, new remix albumKilling Joke will release the double live album Down by the River and the triple CD remix album In Dub on May 5. Down by the River documents the band’s performance at The Royal Festival Hall in 2011 on double-CD and DVD, in what Killing Joke guitarist and founding member Geordie Walker describes as “the definitive KJ live album.” In Dub features three CDs of remixes; Martin “Youth” Glover describes the project: “I first discovered dub in 1976, along with many other kinds of music, it became the soundtrack to my late teenage years and consistent through the rest of my life. We were surrounded by dub in Landbroke Grove in the late 1970s… This is the first time a collection of Killing Joke’s dub mixes has been released as an album, spread over three CDs over four hours of Dub annihilation… it has been an epic voyage. Compiling the best of the legacy and distilling all new dub plates into a definitive collection was never going to be easy. This album has taken over a year to lovingly put together and of all of the many productions and mixes I have been fortunate enough to have been involved with, this one, I’m sure, will be one of those that tells the story best and the one that makes me feel extremely proud to be a part of the phenomena that is Killing Joke.” The band has streamed a track from the release on YouTube. Both releases are available for pre-order through Amazon UK.
Additionally, Jaz Coleman will release his audio literary works Letters from Cythera and The Island Symphony No. 2 on the same date. The Island Symphony No. 2 was composed in 1997 to celebrate Coleman’s New Zealand citizenship; Letters from Cythera was written between 2007–2008 in the South Pacific, outlining how the occult sciences have shaped Coleman’s philosophical outlook. All four releases were originally slated for March.
