Have they checked Iceland? That's where he went in the '80s when he thought the world was coming to an end.

Maybe he's part of an experiment aiming to bring Kurt Cobain back from the dead so he can personally kick his ass for copying him?

That's the first place I would look. Though I've always wondered what was so special about Iceland that made it a safe haven.

Try looking halfway between the asylum and the next building, as the flashlight beam flies.

I agree. The Killing was a joke. Just an awful, awful show.

Maybe Courtney Love killed him too for ripping off her music?

I actually like this band.

See, There were these two guys in a lunatic asylum...
and one night, one night they decide they don't like living in an asylum anymore.
They decide they're going to ESCAPE! So, like, they get up onto the roof and THERE, just across this narrow gap, they see the rooftops of the town, stretching away in the moonlight...

Stretching away to freedom.

Now, the first guy, he jumps right across with no problem, but his friend, his friend daredn't make the leap. Y'see...Y'see he's afraid of falling.

So then, the first guy has an idea...He says "Hey! I have my flashlight with me! I'll shine it across the gap between the buildings. You can walk along the beam and join me!"

B-but the second guy just shakes his head. He suh-says...

He says "Wh-what do you think I am? CRAZY?"

"You'd turn it off when I was half way across!"

I saw him a few months ago in a Prague pub called 'The Wounded Goose' (Potrefena Husa)... but I don't suppose that is much help.

Really? I love Nirvana like no other band since the 80's and I've always heard The Pixies and John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band in Kurt's writing more than anything else. I was stationed in Korea and first saw them on SNL for "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and I was blown out of the water. It was like someone grabbed everything I loved out of early 80's/late 70's punk and just put a 90's spin on it.

Don't get me wrong, KJ were WAY ahead of their time, but I don't hear Nirvana in that, except that with Dave Grohl they finally got that hard killer drum they needed to be complete.

Likewise I don't hear Bill Hicks in anything Dennis Leary does, Bill's in a whole nother league.

That reminds me...whatever happened to my Killing Joke shirt?
 
2012-07-31 05:16:03 PM
Why the amusing tag?

Ten years ago Stuart Adamson went missing under similar circumstances. They found him dead in the hotel room that he hung himself in.

I saw Killing Joke in Detroit back in 2001. Incredible. Would love to see them again if they'd ever come to Minnesota.

Hope you're okay, Jaz. We love ya - even if you are a bit off-the-rails.

KJ is one of my favorite bands but unfortunately yes, Jaz is a complete an utter nutjob. A special breed of nutjobery that just gets worse with age. The dude had doubled down on every conspiracy theory and religious prophecy mankind has to offer. If he turns up dead this time I will be heart broken but far from surprised.

Either way, you have to be a big Nirvana apologist to not see that that's not an original lick.

This. Even Love Like Blood has that problem, it has an incredible intro that builds into what seems like a great riff at first, but it starts to drag after the first verse, and after the second it's just pointless repetition. With the whole thing hitting almost six minutes (IIRC), I usually hit skip about 2:30 in.

It's kind of trancey and tribal. They were definitely hugely influential if nothing else. Maybe I'll give them another listen and run around in circles breaking stuff.

Maybe he's in Cythera.

Killing Joke is one of my favorite bands - I think their (or Jaz's) dysfunction kept them from being a more popular band. But there's something about their music that's just brutal in a beautiful way.

Irving Maimway: Don't get me wrong, KJ were WAY ahead of their time, but I don't hear Nirvana in that,


he's talking about Killing Joke's "Eighties" vs. Nirvana's "Come as You Are." Nirvana obviously lifted Come as You Are's riff from Eighties, but the 2 songs sound nothing alike.

I never noticed it before but yeah, totally the same riff. Teen Spirit is a lift from Boston, but I hardly think it puts Nirvana in the same league as Coldplay.

Glad to see the scratchy old Batman/Nirvana broken record skip-skip-skipping along in this thread. WTG, Internet!

As a KJ superfan who's spent a little bit of time with the man (and was coerced into a petty act of public disobedience by him), I'm confident that A) if he's hiding, he lives too loud a life to not be discovered in due time, and B) if he was going to kill himself, accordingly, he'd do it in just as loud of a manner.

That said, provided A) is the scenario, it'd be sad irony if the Internet coughs his whereabouts, considering how much he despises our age of constant surveillance.

Years ago I read his book on that, which I am not sure was ever published. He gave a copy of the manuscript to a friend of mine on tour ... He makes Fark seem normal.
