With a tentative release date of April 15, 2014, Dark Entries Records in San Francisco will release an exclusive vinyl edition of our collected recordings set "Versions Of A Life (Recordings 1979-81)". The album will feature brand new digital transfers of our ten studio tracks and will include a commemorative poster with credits and Ian's lyrics printed on the reverse. Designed by Mike Coles at Malicious Damage, who does all of Killing Joke's iconic artwork, the poster was originally produced in 1981 to promote the release of our third single "Cut/Faith In Transition". As for the music itself, we were unable to locate all of the original master tapes. Some songs are digital transfers from vinyl, some from cassette and some from an original ¼” master. However all tracks have been diligently no-noised, cleaned up, re-mastered and restored to the best of our ability, and we believe this is as close to a fresh set of underwear as we are ever likely to get. CD and Digital versions are also being prepared hopefully with bonus tracks, but for now here is the Vinyl LP tracklisting:
A1. Everything Is Temporary
A2. Silent Scream
A3. Agent Orange
A5. Extinguish (March '81 Dub Mix) +
A6. Cut (Alternate Version) *
B1. Faith In Transition (Alternate Version) *
B2. Extinguish (April '81 Vocal Mix) +
