Killing Joke’s compelling frontman Jaz Coleman has unveiled plans for a new solo project Black & Red. Find out all about it below…

Jaz Coleman proudly announces his new project Black & Red, a collaboration with Ondrej Smeykal.

Listen to Black & Red’s debut single ‘On The Day The Earth Went Mad’ below. The track is also available across all digital platforms and the single is also available as a limited edition numbered red vinyl 10” via Cadiz Music.

The Black and Red project was born in Australia in 2010 when I set out to find the greatest virtuoso of the didgeridoo only to find the maestro of the instrument resided in Prague where I lived. Upon my return to Czech Rep, I was introduced to Ondrej Smeykal 
We ended up not just developing an ancient instrument * but recording the Black and Red project (adding only Indian Harmonium) and an explosive duo was formed which could recreate the recording live perfectly. The funny thing is  Black and Red only made sense after lockdown”  explains the prophetic Jaz Coleman.

Jaz Coleman began this project with a single challenge, “to create and develop a new therapeutic musical system whose primary function was healing. The project was called the Dodecahedron as a dual tribute to the Russian scientists Morasov and Makarow who began to examine the globe to see if any pattern should emerge linking significant places in history…..” To read Jaz Coleman’s explanation in full go to this link.
