This really over-delivers, 22 Oct 2013
I was keen to read about the KLF, one of my favourite bands from my student days, but this book gave me a lot more than that. John Higgs takes their basic story and creates a weird web that takes in The Wicker Man, Alan Moore, Tammy Wynette, Doctor Who and the fabric of reality and belief. Needless to say, it makes other pretty much all other music books look staid. This might make it sound like a bit of a wide-eyed esoteric tome for the "heads", but the laconic tone makes the whole journey utterly convincing and utterly enjoyable for even down-to-earth sceptics like me. Why can't all books be like this?
