Killing Joke: A Matter of Laughs and Death

Giovanni Dadomo, The Face, May 1981

FUNNY HYSTERICAL: making the journey from Kings Cross to Shepherd's Bush with an earful of Killing Joke. I've just changed fifty albums I didn't need for one of the cheaper stereo cassette machines and am making my first earphone-muffed explorations of the outside world.

Total word count of piece: 1834
