Subject: Anyone remember KLF?

Written By: goodsin on 02/23/05 at 1:10 pm

Anyone remember this crazy bunch, probably best known for the seminal "It's grim up north". Just wondering if anyone knows what they're up to today (maybe moved to MuMu land with Dusty Springfield!) ?

I remember KLF, Goodsin. They were the 'Timelords' initially who made the hit 'Doctorin' the tardis' in 1988. 'The Justified and The Ancient' is such a class track.

I heard they burnt a million pounds or something as part of a publicity stunt.

I completely forgot about them until I got Billboard Top Hits 1991 with 3AM Eternal.  I thought they were great because they combined rock, hiphop, dance, and pop earlier than most others.

That's the only one I ever heard from them aside from Justified & Ancient, which I got on a compilation CD a decade later :P

That they did - all in the cause of 'art' (some people have the most strangest ways...)

They were prolific in the amount of material they released under various monikers - and that's not including the remixes...! There's a helluva lot of rabid collectors out there, the Holy Grail for 'em is a certain promotional remix of 'What Time Is Love' issued in 1989 - apparently only three copies are known to exist...

'Tis absolutely true, Jamie...

I'm not exactly sure what sort of 'artistic statement' they were trying to make...probably something along the lines of, 'we are total headcases...!'
