Warm Leatherette, Thursday 22nd July at Madame Jojo's

[Info] Warm Leatherette, Thursday 22nd July at Madame Jojo's
The launch of a new night of live Post-Punk hedonism from the creators of Electrogogo!

Frankie D is famous as the curator and resident DJ of many long-running cult Electro nights including of course the iconic Electrogogo, which packed in the crowds at Madame Jojo's, to which he returns with his brand new live music night Warm Leatherette, featuring a host of Post-Punk and Electro bands and DJs.

The opening night has as its theme an homage to the legendary Killing Joke, and celebrates all things electronic, synth, gothic and alternative. Three of the bands have a Killing Joke connection: opening act Tribazik have supported Killing Joke several times and their debut album features vocals from Killing Joke's Jaz Coleman. Inertia are joined by Killing Joke's keyboard player Reza; and finally, topping the bill is legendary Killing Joke bassist Youth's side project, the fantastic turbo-charged Vertical Smile.

Vertical Smile (Onstage approximately midnight)
Inertia (Onstage approximately 9pm)
Tribazik (Onstage at 8.15pm)

Warm Leatherette: Thursday 22nd July
Doors: 7.30pm-3am

[Info] The Quietus: Track-by-track: Jaz Coleman's Guide To Killing Joke's Absolute Dissent
'The Raven King'

TQ: The album's emotional centerpiece. An atmospheric keyboard opening sets a backdrop for Jaz's plaintive, heartfelt lament. Guitars and bass roar in for a soaring, epic chorus. Musically this could fit seamlessly onto Brighter Than A Thousand Suns.

JC: It's not a song about Paul Raven, it's about Raven's anger and things he felt passionately about. It's a song for Englishmen. It starts – "the raven has flown and left the tower / and Albion feels all abandoned / a desecrated cenotaph, surveillance state and waning choices / guided by warriors we knew, guided by ancestral voices". And then there is Raven's belief in the original idea of anarchy – "let flags of black and red unfurl / echoes of distant laughter / confederation of the dispossessed / fearing neither god nor master". Raven was a street guy. He believed in a confederation of like-minded individuals, so we tried to be as true to his ideas as we could. The last thing Raven said to me when he left Prague was "carpe nocturno", which is the last line. It touched me when I sang it and heard it back, and I was lost for words.

TQ: Was it a difficult song to record for all those reasons?

JC: It was a difficult song to listen back to. When you're singing, you don't think. That was my first mistake, and Conny Plank brought that to my attention. I used to think about the lyrics I was singing about, but you don't, you just switch off. The heart has to take over.

TQ: Was there any discussion about the song beforehand?

JC: No, no. It started like this – we were in a jam session and Youth goes "Right – let's do one for Raven! Let's go!" (laughs) and it went like that!

We have mastered the new album and its in production!.
Jaz is going into a studio next week to record new vocals on some extra tracks and re record a verse or two to Big Paul's preferred lyric. Geordie is re cutting another guitar track to industrial suicide tribe ...these will probably appear on the deluxe edition as bonus tracks ....meanwhile myself, Clive Goddard and my assistant Michael Rendell are remixing tracks for the next single....will it ever end?

All of these songs are fresh recordings, marking the 30th Anniversary for Killing Joke – the first time the original line-up has worked together in 28 years.

* 3.28 Jeremy Memo

ALL OF these songs are taken from the sessions for the forthcoming KJ album ‘Absolute Dissent’, but it has yet to be decided whether they will feature in the final track-listing.

[PR] The Charlatans - Who We Touch: Deluxe [2CD]

Their eleventh studio album, 'Who We Touch' was produced by Youth (Paul McCartney, Primal Scream and The Verve) and was recorded at Britannia Row in London, on the desk that New Order's 'Blue Monday' was recorded on. Featuring eleven tracks, the album must surely rank as their boldest to date radically broadening, in places, their aesthetic remit. It is, says Burgess, "a soulful voyage", a journey through moods uplifting and profound, dark and delirious, ultimately concluding in blissful optimism. Its sound is inspired by many heroes, yet always sounds like no-one other than The Charlatans themselves.
