In this early Killing Joke live concert Jaz is playing an Oberheim OB-X synth. Though Jaz has been the main keyboardist of Killing Joke through their whole career, Jaz only played keyboards live in the early years, from 81 to 84, then Dave Kovacevic started to play the keyboards parts live, so Jaz can focus on the singing and being the frontman. If you watch other live videos from those years, he's playing the same synth, so this should have been his main synth both live and in studio in those years (I'm pretty sure he used it also in 85' 'Night Time').more
In the beginning of the "Subdivisions" music video, it can be seen that he is using an OB-X, as the OB-Xa has blue pinstriped-lines running vertically across the entirety of the synth, whereas this one has the grey panel/boxes around the buttons and knobs that would be found on the OB-X.more
