Jaz Coleman, from his Quietus bakers-dozen-LPs interview:

"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

yeah i can see that connection

a fantastic piece of controlled tension, i can't think of any other piece of rock like it

and K Joke did "tension music"

other Jaz choices (Ligeti to Chic, PiL to Wagner) interesting and revealing

he does have quite a high estimation of himself though don't he?

gotta love the Joke though
