Paul Ferguson is a rock drummer, best known for his work in the post-punk / industrial group Killing Joke and cult English punk band Pink Parts. In 1978 Ferguson became a founding member of Killing Joke and served as their drummer from 1978 to 1987. He is known as ‘Big Paul Ferguson’.
Ferguson, together with bassist Paul Raven, departed from the band in 1987 during the recording of their seventh studio album, Outside The Gate. The last album he recorded with Killing Joke during this period was the 1986 release Brighter than a Thousand Suns.
He subsequently worked on other musical projects, notably with rock outfits Warrior Soul (1987-1990), Murder, Inc. (1991-92) and Crush (1992-93). During the following years Ferguson lived in the United States and Puerto Rico, and became a sculptor and art restorer, specialising in ancient sculptures. He also briefly played with The Orb.
Ferguson rejoined Killing Joke for their 2008 reunion, which saw the original line-up together for the first time since 1982. He wrote and recorded with Killing Joke for the first time in 23 years on their 2010 studio album Absolute Dissent. He remains with Killing Joke, playing on their 2012 album release MMXII and subsequent tour, as well as their 2015 release Pylon.
2015 also saw the launch of Boneyard, a line of skull-and-bone jewelry designed and handcrafted by Ferguson. Each unique piece is individually cast and hand finished in solid sterling silver.
Killing Joke embark on their 40th anniversary tour in September 2018. In 2018, The Sublunar Society signed an exclusive license deal with Dead Radio Station to release BPF´s EP Remote Viewing.
