Buzz Tunes // Killing Joke - Eighties

Joke-m.jpg

If you’re from the younger generation you probably don’t know much about the cold war era. Nuclear attack drills in school, Ronald Reagan’s constant saber rattling, living in a constant state of fear of nuclear annihilation, acronyms like MAD (mutually assured destruction), and the good side of this period: darkly amazing music combined with NFG fashion. Case in point is the band Killing Joke. With tensions ratcheting up as of late with our old nemesis Russia, we could be soon seeing an entirely new cold war. Our only hope is that the music produced as a result is as good as the music from the 80s.
