Just an excellent early 90's pop act-nothing quite like them since.
I think it's supposed to be the Kopyright Liberation Front.
I read The Manual quite recently and it was great, any advice on a good KLF album?
There was a story in a weekend supplement about Bill Drummond organising an Echo and the Bunnymen tour so that the tourbus' route was in the shape of a bunny's face, what a guy.
organised a simulateous gigs in Iceland and Papua New Ginea (I think) by Echo and the Bunnymen and The Teardrop Explodes whilst he stood on a manhole cover in Liverpool because he believed he would harness the power of some intergalactic leylines which reached their junctions with Earth at those three points.
The guy is a mentalist.
heroic levels of contempt for the music industry (Drummond wrote a book about how to write a number 1 single)
they only did one 'normal' studio album and 'chill out'. he JAMMs 'shag times' sompilation is interesting.
the manual is a geat read and spot on (if dated).
seriously brilliant band - certainly in terms of ideas and attitude
is still a fantastic album. Would probably be in my all-time top 40. Not that I've ever considered making an all-time top 40, but y'know.
Pioneers of ambient house, creators of super-catchy rave anthems and pop singles, and general cultural terrorists/geniuses. They were fucking great though and you're right, there hasn't been anyone quite like them since, there probably couldn't be.
is perhaps a bit of an exaggeration, but spot on with the rest. "3AM Eternal" and "What Time Is Love?" are pop classics and their feats of disdain for the music industry are the stuff of legends!
even though saying that phrase makes me sound like I'm advertising a minestry of sound compilation...
