The answer is yes, the KLF, aka, The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu aka The Timelords, aka The JAMS, are back. Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty have been doing their own thing for the last 23 years (and those who’ve read John Higgs excellent book on the KLF know the significance of the number 23) and now look to return in August with new material.
The Quietus outlines the story of their return, but as always there’s holes in the story which means the ‘truth’ will be something we never know and that’s a good thing in an age where everything is spelt out in minute detail for the hard of thinking.
The excitement started on New Year’s Day when this video was leaked online.
This was the video made for the KLF night a few months back at the Cube in Bristol which in retrospect looks to to have kicked Drummond and Cauty into some sort of action but again. we’ll probably never know.
I’m sure whatever happens they’ll be a bit more to the story of the KLF and if that results in new music, art or whatever the hell they decide to do it’ll be one of the most interesting things in what promises to be a potentially bleak year.
