Killing Joke photographic book ‘Twilight Of The Mortals’ – Pre-Sale 0900hrs Fri 9th December
‘Twilight of the Mortals’ is the new publication from PC-Press. The book is a collection of the incredible work of photographer and former post-punk DJ Mont Sherar and the result of his 36-years of love for the band; Killing Joke.
The book documents the period since the original line up of the modern day band after reuniting in 2008 after the untimely death of bassist Paul Raven who had originally replaced Martin Glover (Youth) initially in mid-1982.
This new era until most recent times is presented in a beautifully printed and designed book that comes in both soft and hardback formats, plus a special ltd. edition ‘Analogue’ Deluxe Vinyl package. The latter features two 7″ singles on coloured vinyl in a gatefold sleeve designed by none other than legendary, Steven R. Gilmore. Each member represented by one track each.
The book presents 200 plus photos of both the group and it’s individuals, all taken and processed by Sherar from his unique position as a ‘fly on the wall’ photographer with the band over a 7 year period – including the song writing process of the album, ‘Pylon.’
Printed by Calverts of London on art papers and designed by PC-Press in association with Cactus Design, the book is a riot of colour, energy and intimate images of the band in many different and previously unseen settings.
