Pain Killer - Guts Of A Virgin / Buried Secrets

These are the first two Pain Killer albums that were originally released in 1991 an 1992 respectively. The reactions were many and varied with the common theme being "What The Fuck?" or perhaps something more erudite. If you're here, I'm assuming that you are on the right side of the fence. I also sort of hope that you haven't heard it before so you can have that same initial response but in a good way. John Zorn, Bill Laswell and Mick Harris writing a new set of rules that only the foolhardy would attempt to follow ... because they did it perfectly the first time around.

Compilation CD released on Earache in 1998.

Been ages since I last listened to these. The Godflesh collaboration tracks on Buried Secrets kill all.

Painkiller, Perhaps we should revisit that "greatest band that ever strode the Earth" debate. Hearty thanks for the posts.

I loved Painkiller they were messy and fun, once MJHarris ;eft got replaced they lost that thing. Seeimg the Zorn show in Paris 1992 is still one of the vest things I gave ever seen live. Just for the sheer horror that they played / shown at a Jazz gig/ And Painkiller opened
