Venue: Parabola Arts Centre
Time: Doors from 7pm
An artist of fierce intellect and purpose, Jaz Coleman tells it like it is – the UNSPEAKABLE truth in the world of Killing Joke a band who came out of punk and then set out on one of the most remarkable and idiosyncratic journeys ever.
A celebrated musician, composer, producer, author, lecturer, traveller, philosopher, actor and Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres, was born on 26 February 1960 in Cheltenham to an English father and an Anglo-Indian mother of half-Bengali descent.
He studied piano and violin under Eric Coleridge, head of music for Cheltenham College, until the age of 17, and was a member of several cathedral choirs in England before forming the iconic post-punk band Killing Joke. In a time when the planet seems to be descending further into chaos, who better than Jaz Coleman to lead us out of the darkness.
