thinking about the KLF...

after sharing in a little KLF history last night after the softball game, i came across their sampledelic 1988 #1 UK single "Doctorin' the Tardis" which they released as the Timelords. A horrid and awesome mixing (because the now-played-out "mash-up" wun't 'round) of the Doctor Who theme and Gary Glitter's "Rock and Roll (Part two)" (you know, "DUH duh duh-duh HEY! duh-duh duh-duh").

They would later inspire my childhood with the Stadium House sounds of the KLF single: "3AM Eternal", which they would then perform (video) with a death metal band Extreme Noise Terror at the Brit Awards in 1992 with the lead man dressed in a trenchcoat on crutches and at song's end, shot blanks from an AK-47 into the crowd because they weren't allowed to throw sheep's blood at them. then announced their retirement. and threw a dead sheep at the awards' afterparty with a note saying:

"I died for ewe - bon appetit"
