Killing Joke - "Corporate Elect" (video)

by PopMatters Staff

9 May 2013

British post-punk band Killing Joke celebrates their 35th anniversary this year with a new compilation, 'The Singles Collection 1979 -2012', released this week via Spinefarm.
 

Today they share with us a new video for “Corporate Elect”. Director Mikee Goodman says, “This video has been my biggest creative challenge yet. I had never previously met Jaz Coleman, but I was blown away by the powerful and passionate performance he delivered. I did not sleep properly for five weeks. Now I have, I have looked at it again with fresh eyes. And smiled.”

Watch for an album of new material from Killing Joke in 2014.
