Money Is Not Our God: The Anti-Commercial Ire of Killing Joke's "Extremities" Album

An interview with drummer Martin Atkins

At the time of its release in November of 1990, Killing Joke's "Extremities, Dirt And Various Repressed Emotions" signaled a crucial shift for the band. Up until this point, Killing Joke had managed to morph its image like a demonic shapeshifter; retaining a common thread of underlying malicious intent woven throughout even their most commercial output. Combining harsh and jagged industrial with dark dance music, "Extremities" was the culmination of the band's multiple faces up to that point. It is a heavy and unrelenting record, sharply political yet bluntly nihilistic in its pummeling approach. The album's lead single, "Money Is Not Our God," was a particular standout with its vehemently anti-commercial mantra, driving-hypnotic rhythm, and pounding drums.

However, when Killing Joke released the album, few fans knew what to expect. Their two prior albums, "Outside The Gate" (1988) and "The Courtauld Talks" (1989), had deviated from their perceived trademark sound. Subsequently both albums were commercial flops while managing to alienate much of their fanbase in the process. They were soon dropped by Virgin Records and half of the band members quit.

Founding members Jaz Coleman and Geordie Walker began the process of revamping the lineup; first by enlisting former Public Image Ltd drummer Martin Atkins and then convincing former bassist Paul Raven to rejoin the group. It is with this lineup that they recorded "Extremities, Dirt And Various Repressed Emotions" in August of 1990, and it is the only album to feature this formation of Killing Joke. It was the direct influence of Martin Atkins during this period which returned the band to their earlier sound and put them back on the course to relevance. Without him joining and appearing on this album, it's arguable as to whether Killing Joke would be regarded as highly as they are today.

In a new interview, Martin reflects on his time in the group, the sound of the album, its influences, and much more. Read it at:

BILL STEER / CARCASS RELATED CONTENT

Image

After several years, we are pleased to announce a new release with printed work from Negative Insight is now available. London's Demo Tapes have officially released the Disattack "A Bomb Drops..." demo as a 12" EP, and we are humbled to be a small part of it.

The Disattack demo, recorded in the UK in 1985, has become a cult relic within the Discharge style. While somewhat dismissed at the time of its release for being a Discharge clone, it has since been championed by fans and gone on to be considered one of the purveyors of the Dis genre. As the label writes, "Six raw bursts of sonic bloodbath that will leave your ears bleeding in a ditch. The fear of doom dawning when the whole world will be bathed in Blood!"

Featuring Bill Steer on guitar prior to forming Carcass, as well as Middie from Distraught Records (who released Anti-Cimex's self-titled 12" in 1986) on vocals, this demo has been fully restored for the highest sound quality.

The Negative Insight contribution to this release includes two recent interviews (one with Middie and another with bassist Paul) reflecting on the history of the band, the influence of Discharge and how Disattack were perceived in their brief time together. They are part of a 28 page booklet which compiles a slew of unearthed photos, fanzine interviews, reviews, and more from the era. It is a high quality release, giving the band proper recognition.

Copies in the US and North America can be purchased through our Social Napalm shop @social__napalm at:

For US wholesale, they are available from our friends at Sorry State Records @sorrystate and Ebullition Records.

Led To The Slaughter: The Varukers Perfect Thrash in 1984

An interview with former bassist Mark Briscoe

https://www.negativeinsight.com/

The Varukers came to prominence from their early line ups, which had a punked out UK82-meets-Discharge sound. Propelled by name brand label Riot City releasing the "Die For Your Government" 7" and "Bloodsuckers" album, along with the inclusion of their track "Soldier Boy" on the "UK/DK" soundtrack, the band were one of the darlings of England's decked and wrecked warriors.

But it was a pair of releases in 1984 that endeared them to the more hardcore fanbase—and which are still held in the highest regard today. The first of these was the "Led To The Slaughter" EP, which was then followed up by the "Another Religion Another War" 12". These releases are not only known for moving the Varukers in a harder and faster direction, but also for spawning the lineup that was the precursor to the formation of Sacrilege.

The bass duties on both records were handled by Mark "Brik" Briscoe. Mark joined the Varukers in 1983 shortly after the "Bloodsuckers" album had come out. As a friend and fan of the band, he ended up being the only member besides vocalist Rat to play with both the earlier more punked UK82 sounding era and the all out thrash style of the "Led To The Slaughter" and "Another Religion Another War" releases.

However, fate can be cruel with history unfairly recorded, and Mark was a victim of such circumstances. Instead of being credited for his playing on "Another Religion Another War," Tony May is listed and also featured in the band photos, as Mark had left the band shortly after the recording was completed. Due to this, his contributions, including having co-written many of the tracks, have been unfairly overlooked.

Although he was only in the band for a short period of time, he plays on arguably the best Varukers material and had some interesting things to say about the band's history during that time. Read the full interview at:

The great Swedish punk photographer Sebastian Todor has passed away sadly. He was an important part of chronicling the punk scene in Gothenburg, Sweden, and his photos of Anti-Cimex instantly recognizable. We did a short post on Instagram honoring his work and showcasing a few of his photos.

Industrial Introduction: The Truth Behind Throbbing Gristle's "The Second Annual Report" on Fetish Records

https://www.negativeinsight.com/niblog/tgfetishrecords

https://www.instagram.com/p/CRO0DAyjugF/

When Throbbing Gristle released "The Second Annual Report" album on their own Industrial Records imprint in November of 1977, the reception was as mixed as the music was caustic. Coming from the seedy streets of Hackney, London, the aural butchery of the album was provocative and menacing—which is part of what made it so appealing.

After the initial pressing by Industrial Records, Fetish Records repressed it using the original plates. Here Steve Brown of Fetish Records explains the background of the Fetish label and how a chance phone call with Genesis P-Orridge led to the collaboration on what was then a nonexistent label.
