Killing Joke: Astoria, London
Ian Fortnam, New Musical Express, 7 May 1994
JAZ COLEMAN, if you didn't know already, has spent half a lifetime redefining the word 'intensity'. His all-encompassing passion borders on madness and his commitment to the ultimate soul-cleansing performance is total — and in the light of all this, his audience is almost incidental. At heart, the Killing Joke performance is an elaborate personal exorcism for a man driven to the brink of insanity by the pressures of his post-nuclear existence.
