In the 25th year of their existence, of course, something very special must come from the rock anarchists par excellence. Not only that Jaz Coleman & Co. (who are: Big Paul, Geordie and Youth) have released their new album "Letters From Cythera" - with "The Singles Collection" comes the ultimate collection of mad decouplings, which rightly carry the 'mad' as a distinctive character trait. From the rough punk of the founding era to the keyboard-heavy eighties, the early nineties marked by industrial, the following trance-, dub- and ambient era to the modern era, which still has all the peculiarities of the already somehow rather unstable band. Here you will inevitably find out which classics Killing Joke have in their repertoire. Because songs like "War Dance", "Eighties" (from which Nirvana stole the striking riff for their hit "Comes As You Are" a few years later), "Love Like Blood", "Adorations" and also the wild "Money Is Not Our God" might be classified as relatively indispensable. The package is available as a double album and 3CD deluxe edition.
