"Chop-Chop" is Killing Joke's second single from their third studio album, Revelations. It released under E'G Records as a 7" single. The B-side, "Good Samaritan", was also off Revelations. This single, unlike "Empire Song", did not chart.[1]

Production and release[edit]

"Chop-Chop" suffered the same fate as "Empire Song". At Top of the Pops, the "Coleman Fake" was used again as Paul Ferguson provided lyrics and drums. By this time, Coleman was the only member of Killing Joke to move to Iceland. However, by the end of the year, the other three members soon moved to Iceland to avoid the apocalypse, predicted by Coleman.
