Killing Joke, what a magnificent live band! The first tracks I ever heard from them was the music of this 10"-album! The opener Pssyche is pure thrilling energy, an energy that Killing Joke have always held the key t. any bands nowadays miss that energy. A song that now, 2009, comes sometimes in my head. Also the songs Unspeakable or The pandys are coming conquer a place in your brain. In 1985 you had in Asse-Terheide, here in Belgium, "Radio Terheide", a local radiostation that was playing all day in all day out new wave and alternative music and Killing Joke was.

Talk about Killing Joke - "Ha!" Killing Joke Live

It's important to note that the Japanese album is a 12" record and not a 10" record like the other releases. That fact is not very clear here on Discogs... and the format is precisely one of the reasons why is collectible...
Adjusted to correct listing. 12" Mini-Album. With all other versions being 10".
