The Show: Who killed the KLF?

Who indeed killed The KLF?

Spoiler alert: It wasn’t us. Honest.

But Chris Atkins might possibly know.

His new documentary “Who Killed the KLF?” irreverently chronicles the early lives of Jimmy Cauty and Bill Drummond, the formation of The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu, how to make hit records, the evolution of The KLF, the pranks, the controversies, the art, and of course the burning of a million quid. Alan Moore appears and lovingly sums it up: “Everything was about confrontation, everything was a challenge.” Haven’t enjoyed a music doco this much in years…

The Show: Bulbous also tapered? That’s right!

For some bizarre reason I recently got an earworm of Captain Beefheart and The Mascara Snake talking about bulbous things at the start of Trout Mask Replica’s “Pena”, hence today’s show title. Delightful fan video below if you want the whole experience.

Not to be outdone on the freakiness front UNCLE QUENTIN aka Tim “Von Klap” Moore has just released the album Famous For God. One for fans of bent and swinging James Bond soundtracks, The Avalanches, beats and synths. Sneak peek below…
