Pssyche: The Killing Joke Tribute

Fri 16th March 2018
@ New Continental - Preston

The UK’s only established live tribute to influential post-punk/industrial rock legends KILLING JOKE.

Playing shows since 2012 (and formerly known as Absolute Dissent), PSSYCHE’s line-up of lifelong Killing Joke devotees is passionate about delivering the intense live experience of a band who once described their apocalyptic output as “the sound of the earth vomiting.”

Every gig is a celebration for seasoned “Gatherers” and new fans alike, spanning all eras of the Joke’s incredible near-40 year career. Pssyche’s live sets mirror those of KJ – songs from the highly regarded recent albums feature alongside older classics like Requiem & Wardance and hits Love Like Blood & Eighties. The sets also include fan favourites that have not been played by Killing Joke for over 20 years.

Based in West Yorkshire, the band has played an eclectic mix of venues, primarily in the north of England. Highlights include Manchester Academy with Joy Division tribute Transmission; and being privileged to support 1919 following their reformation and return to the live circuit.

Personnel changes in 2014 saw founder members James (guitar) & Marcus (keyboards) team up with Mick (vocals) & Damon (drums), with experienced local musician Rory (bass) completing the current line-up. Drummer Damon is part of the extended Killing Joke family, having served as drum tech for the band on recent tours.

Every member of PSSYCHE is dedicated to doing justice to Killing Joke’s sound and history; and to delivering a live experience not to be missed.
