Tour de force of the most awesome ideas ever
on 7 December 2012
This isn't really about the KLF. it's about the ideas that led to the KLF doing the things they did, and the ideas that led to those ideas. As such it's much more interesting and, dare I say, useful than your bog standard music biography.
It's also a really good guide to understanding where Bill Drummond is coming from in his art over the last decade, complementing books like The 17 well.
Personally I enjoyed how ideas and people I've been fascinated by over the last few decades are tied together, from Ken Campbell to Alan Moore to Robert Anton Wilson, and how often pretentious, academic issues that idiots love to obsfucate are explained and contextualised in plain entertaining language.
Book of the year, no question.
