The KLF – Justifed and Ancient (featuring Tammy Wynette)

I remember watching this video on TV after school one day when I was in grade 9. My mom came into the room.

Mom: … that’s Tammy Wynette! … what is she wearing … and singing about?

Me: I have absolutely no idea. But isn’t it great?

Mom: … it is!

THE KLF

The KLF (also known as The Justified Ancients of Mu MuThe Timelords and other names) were one of the seminal bands of the British acid house movement during the late 1980s and early 1990s

From the outset, they adopted the philosophy espoused by esoteric novel seriesThe Illuminatus! Trilogy, gaining notoriety for various anarchic situationistmanifestations, including the defacement of billboard adverts, the posting of prominent cryptic advertisements in NME magazine and the mainstream press, and highly distinctive and unusual performances on Top of the Pops. Their most notorious performance was a collaboration with Extreme Noise Terror at the February 1992 BRIT Awards, where they fired machine gunblanks into the audience and dumped a dead sheep at the aftershow party. This performance announced The KLF’s departure from the music business, and in May 1992 the duo deleted their entire back catalogue.

With The KLF’s profits, Drummond and Cauty established the K Foundation and sought to subvert the art world, staging analternative art award for the worst artist of the year and burning one million pounds sterling. Drummond and Cauty remained true to their word of May 1992—the KLF Communications catalogue remains deleted in the UK, but The White Room is still being pressed in the US by Arista. They have released a small number of new tracks since then, as the K Foundation, The One World Orchestra and most recently, in 1997, as 2K.
