I picked up a copy of Classic Rock Magazine at the weekend. Not my usual literary fare (I subscribe to the Fortean Times and pick up Viz whenever a see a new one out… there you go, my guilty little secrets) but the cover article and associated CD looked interesting enough to shell out £4.99 for.
The cover article was all about Slash‘s latest project, a collaboration with rock luminaries and musicians Slash respects. With that in mind, Classic Rock magazine put together their own CD of rock collaborations. Now I didn’t check the track listing before buying the magazine but imagine my surprise when I see that track 1 is a collaboration between Killing Joke and Tim Burgess (of Charlatans fame).
What an awesome track! Titled “I Buy” it has the kind of socio-political rant like feel that I love to hear from Killing Joke. It’s odd to hear the phenomenal musical artistry that Killing Joke can produce without Jaz’s vocals but Tim’s voice works flawlessly within the track.
I only wish I could find a sample to link to.
