TODAY’S YESTERDAY ALBUM – ‘What’s THIS For…!’ – 2nd LP by KILLING JOKE (1981)

Remarkable albums from the past…

‘What’s THIS For…!’ by KILLING JOKE

Released: June 1981 – the band’s second LP

KillLP-800

ALL MUSIC review: ” ‘What’s THIS For…!’ showed that Killing Joke could maintain
their frenetic, doom-wracked intensity while experimenting with their already
strongly established style. Jazz Coleman’s vocals go through even more treatments
and tweaks than before, chorus shout-alongs swathed in deep echoes, hidden behind Geordie Walker’s punishing riffs and the steroid-driven rhythm section. Big Paul Ferguson in particular lays down some absolutely skull-crushing drum slams and Youth is no less intense at most parts…” – Score: 4/5 – Full review  here

TURN UP THE VOLUME! says: Probably the best Apocalypse Now band in history. When Doomsday comes their wall-of-metallic-post-punk on What’s This For…!  is a firm candidate to be its soundtrack.
