I love the KLF

It's Chill Out with new track names, but all the unlicensed samples removed (I think.) I think I can hear several things I was expecting to hear removed (for example, there's a Southern preacher-type guy going all fire and brimstone and apocalypse and talking about the "East Coast" a lot in the early parts?) I'm guessing the little Elvis snippets will be dropped too.

Apparently Jimmy Cauty designed this poster, and many others like it, that I and millions of other nerds had on their bedroom wall. They never cease to amaze me. 
 

 


So he's the one who made the spelling mistake that I could not unsee. Took me years to spot it in the first place, mind.

Mid-European cultural historians site the entire catalogue of the German band Scooter to be the ultimate mainstream proto re-enactment of The KLF. In doing so Scooter sold many millions of more records than The KLF ever did. 

 

:lol:

Jesus H Christ. America: What Time Is Love followed by Justified and Ancient. I don't think there's a better 14 and a half minutes in all of music.

 

Huge, warm, silly, triumphant, mocking, cheerful, funny, superior, catchy, grooves, rocks, hugely, hugely varied, technically perfect - they make my eyes water with the invention both in sheer admiration and because it still moves me.

 

Probably worth noting that I think the lead synth line is What Time Is Love is as perfect as a Bach melody. It couldn't be simpler and it's bloody perfect.

Loving this "new" one. I honestly feel like I did when I was 17 in 1990. Dunno why, the synths, drums, trippy dubby vibes. Exactly what I loved at the properly fortmative time of my life (discovering drugs lol).
