The Death and Resurrection Show

Formed during a fire ritual that burned down their flat, Killing Joke exploded onto the British post-punk music scene in 1978. They rapidly built a mythical status from their esoteric beliefs, controversial imagery and genre-defining experimentation; their influence spanned industrial rock, classical symphonies, psychedelic trance and 80s pop, and inspired the likes of Nirvana, Metallica, Ministry, Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden. Through a barrage of music, archive footage and deeply personal interviews shot over the last 12 years, The Death and Resurrection Show provides the definitive story of Killing Joke – from rituals at Stonehenge to recording sessions in the Pyramids.
