Stand By The JAMs----The Strange World of The KLF

on Thu Feb 01, 2018 2:13 pm
In a field of one, this duo (Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty) deserves a topic of its own. Before
I start posting songs, this is a "KLF library" I discovered yesterday. It's not for the faint of heart:

A safer place to start is The KLF's wiki page:

This was my introduction to The KLF. They had the habit of releasing umpteen versions of everything.
This is "3 A.M. Eternal" in the "Guns Of Mu Mu" version. It was on a comp my son had in the early '90s.

My next and most unusual earful of their music was in the early '90s, when we
found ourselves in Norway. There was this party going on on an island across
from our camp site and one of the records they were blasting out was this one:

The above track began life in 1989 in a Pure Trance version.
I could listen to those synth and string lines all day!



"The original version of 'Last Train To Trancentral' released in 1989. I have been told by a few that this
is not the true original, but this is what was claimed to be the '1989 Pure Trance Original' on my German
'Blow-Up' Last Train To Trancentral (Live From The Lost Continent) CD. If I am wrong, then so is the CD!"

I gave their album The White Room a spin last week. I remember being underwhelmed on the
previous occasion and it was the same this time. Which leaves me with their ambient album Chill
Out
. Now that is excellent! I learnt about it from Mark Prendergast's must-read The Ambient Century:
