Idler News: KLF announce new work

5 Jan

Jimmy and Bill

Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty of the KLF have announced that they are planning to release a new work. A photograph of a poster bearing the following text was posted on Twitter today. Here is the text.

It is almost 23 years since the Justified Ancients of Mu Mu announced a self-imposed and self-important 23 year moratorium. The reasons for the moratorium have now been lost in time, space and a rusting shipping container somewhere near Sizewell B Nuclear Power Station.

What is known is:

The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu have zero involvement with any video clips, films, recorded music, documentary productions, biographies, West End musicals or social media chatter relating to the letters K, L or F, now, or at any other time over these previous 23 years.

Furthermore:

The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu have no interest in anything that seeks to comment on, bounce off, glorify, debunk or resurrect their historical work.

The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu are currently at work in their light industrial unit. This work will not be made public until the 23rd of August, 2017.

Bill Drummond has written about social media and the coming of the “fame ethic” in the forthcoming issue of the Idler.
