The KLF. The 80s/90s music enigma that pioneered the dance club scene and delivered a run of massive radio hits. Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty mercilessly took the piss out of the British pop establishment, which honoured them in return. At the height of their fame, The KLF disappeared, deleting their entire music catalogue as they "left the building". And there's the curious business of burning one million pounds of fresh banknotes.
Their decision to delete their catalogue meant KLF material has been impossible to get, and hasn't ever been available to download or stream. Until now. On New Year's Eve, The KLF announced a slight return - they're on YouTube and Spotify,= making their music available for the first time in the digital age.
Listen to my ABC Radio story on the KLF. All aboard all aboard whoa.
