Killing Joke's front man chooses his 13 favourite albums. As told to Dayal Patterson


The Sensational Alex Harvey Band – Faith Healer
I know all the band would agree with this one, it’s one track that everyone gives a resounding yes to. It defines everything about rock music. The track 'Faith Healer' on its own, on its own, kinda inspired Killing Joke. Yes, massively, it inspired a young [Geordie] Walker and it’s the only song by Alex Harvey I really like, but it’s got to be one of the greatest pieces of rock music ever. I remember it as a teenager but I didn’t really get into it in a big way until I was in the band, and Geordie and Youth brought it to my attention.
