For tonight like. If Youth takes part, i'll be sure to ask about Sweet Gorilla
Are they planning to bring any material from the Revelations/Firedances era into their set. Because I'd love to see that happen. If not, why is this.
completely dismissed one of their best albums 'Extremities, Dirt & Various Repressed Emotions' from their live set.
i'm weary of asking anything too direct, although it might be fun to challenge him on a couple things
How far into the new record are you? What's it sounding like.
You're always pegged as being massively influential. Is this a mixed blessing? Do you hear some bands claim you as an influence and cringe?
Every killing Joke album has a very different/distinct style and sound which feels quite thematic; although you can always tell it's the Joke. Is it a concious plan to make some albums more tribal beat heavy or more dancey? Or do things just fall in to place?
be short of conversation anyway. You're aware he's a total loon right? You can always ask him and Geordie if they enjoyed Iceland when they went there to survive the Apocalypse, which Jaz had predicted was imminent!
on one hand i dont really want to ask anything about the music, and just get him talking about the economy or politics, but on the other i've quite a few i want to ask myself about previous albums and the like, ones similar to the ones DeadJames has listed above.
Boston pancakes or Portuguese breakfasts?
Jaz, do you secretly moonlight as eccentric cricket umpire Asad Rauf?
Youth, do you sit at home in your underwear eating cold macaroni cheese with Scouting for Girls on full blast?
if Jaz is planning to merge his career as a classical music writer with killing joke at all, could he imagine doing shows with an orchestra backing or an opera of reworked KJ songs?
Ask him how much of the band's success is down to magic and the rituals they performed in their early career?
So lucky to be interviewing them, was rereading a mojo article on them last night (2005, so while Paul Raven was still alive) and it's utter genius
We would like to know, well I would anyway.
i had to drop out of doing the interview because of other commitments, but dom gourlay will be writing one up for DiS, and i sat in on his, just to ask a couple questions.
well, that was the idea, but in 20 odd minutes Dom managed to get in 3-4 questions and i managed 2 before the tour manager pulled the plug. he was in ultra-mad rant mode, which of course made it very interesting and fun, and he was much less standoffish than i expected.
the gig itself was superb. my review will be up at some point over the weekend. i'll link it on here when its live.
back in 2006 i interviewed Jaz Coleman - face to face, for four and a half hours! - and Youth (on the phone) for a big MOJO feature on KJ... they have the most incredible stories
i guess that's the mojo article amy is referring to above. is it online?
got a feeling text was on my old laptop, but i'll dig out the magazine this weekend and scan it for you...
I assume you mean Jaz was in 'ultra-mad rant mode' not the tour manager?!
