ABOUT

Killing Joke began taking on the world in general and the world of music in particular in 1978. Ever since, the band have had a dedicated group of followers now known as The Gatherers (inspired by the song "The Gathering" from the 1983 Fire Dances album).

The story in full is told elsewhere, both in print and now, on film. The archive presents a portion of Killing Joke history for fellow Gatherers and, perhaps, Gatherers-to-be.

The archive is a work in progress - patience is advised.

"Killing Joke have never been more relevant."

Dave Jennings, Louder than War

"While certain bands of their time are happy to add pointless albums to their canon, Killing Joke's veins still carry artistic merit, creativity and something to say. "

- Andy McDonald, Drowned in Sound
