‘Nabob’ Special Edition for Killing Joke Tour

September 26, 2010 at 8:51 pm 2 comments

A special edition of the Nabob of Bombasta has been created especially for the Killing Joke tour.

It is beyond wonderful.

It’s a rather luxorious hardback, to start with.  It has a bonus story by Brian Barritt, The Island, added at the end.  There’s a small gallery of extra artwork by Youth, not included in the paperback.  Each copy is signed by Brian Barritt and Youth, and each copy has an original – and wildly differing – drawing by Youth in the inside cover.  There are currently only 60 copies in existence.  And it is only available – for this year, anyway – from the merch stand at the Killing Joke tour.

But the best thing is the CD that you’ll find inside.

The entire story of the Nabob of Bombasta has been read by Brian and set to music by Youth – music that matches the spirits of the text’s unapologetic exuberence.

Truly, it has to be heard to be believed.

The new Killing Joke album – featuring the original line-up of Jaz, Paul, Geordie and Youth – is released on Monday.

    There’s no hardback/CD editions left, I’m afraid, but check your email – I’ll send through a link so you can download it as MP3s
