Following yet another temporary breakup in the early '90s, the members of the eternally volatile Killing Joke re-formed (minus vocalist Jaz Coleman) under the Murder Inc. banner. Including Revolting Cocks vocalist Chris Connelly, guitarist Geordie Walker, bassist Paul Raven, and drummers Paul Ferguson and Martin Atkins (ex-PiL), the band conspired to record 1992's eponymous LP for independent Invisible Records. Despite mixed response from critics and fans over the group's avant-garde alt-rock, a short bout of touring encouraged the band to carry on long enough to record the following year's Corpuscle EP. But Murder Inc. disintegrated as soon as a financially enticing recording contract for a newly re-formed Killing Joke hit the negotiating table, and 1999's Locate Subvert Terminate: The Complete Murder Inc. collection would serve as last will and testament to the band's brief existence.
