Not ones to shy away from shock-and-awe of punk, Killing Joke were notorious for their controversial artwork and imagery, sparking their fare share of controversy throughout their illustrious career. But the music still remained untainted by sensationalism and they persisted in the taxing world of post-punk, releasing an album nearly every year of the ‘80s. With a drastic departure from their aggressive doom-and-gloom rants, Killing Joke released a primarily spoken-word album in 1989, which they promoted during their September 29, 1990, stint at Metro. Check out the ad clip for the show above.
