A Life Once Lost Play a Killing Joke on an Asteroid
I gotta be honest: Killing Joke would not be the first band I would imagine A Life Once Lost might cover. But maybe that’s why ALOL’s cover of Killing Joke’s “Asteroid” works so well. They haven’t actually made all that many changes to the song, so much as they’ve just A Life Once Losted it up a bit, to the point where someone who didn’t know better might think it was an ALOL original.
In any case, I find both versions of this song hilarious. I don’t know if that was the intention, but someone screaming “ASTEROIIIIIIIDDDDD!!!!” just makes me giggle every time. It also makes me wanna play Asteroids. Hm.
You can stream the track on A Life Once Lost’s Facebook page. The track served as a b-side for last year’s excellent Ecstatic Trance, which is out now on Season of Mist.
And here’s Killing Joke’s original, in case you’ve never heard it:
