Killing Joke Reunite

Influential post-punk band Killing Joke's original quartet--vocalist/keyboardist Jaz Coleman, guitarist Geordie Walker, drummer Paul Ferguson, and bassist Martin "Youth" Glover--will record and tour together for the first time in almost 30 years. In expected perverse fashion the band will play a series of 2-night stands on a world tour in which they will perform their first two albums--1980's Killing Joke and 1981's What's This For?--in their entirety on the first night and play 1994's Pandemonium and their singles released on Island Records in 1979 and 1980 on the second night. In other words, they won't be performing anything from the album they're supposed to be promoting. [sigh] (This whole business of being difficult for the hell of it kinda gets tiring sometimes, doesn't it?) 
Anyway, here's a clip of their great song "Eighties"--with its "Come As You Are" approved riff--to tide you over in the meantime.
