Following some speculation across the past week, it looks as if the second coming of The KLF is happening in 2017.
Stumbled upon by Cally Callomon (editor of the mysterious looking Eastfolk Chronicle and manager to KLF co-founder Bill Drummond), a poster which is now being shared online seems to suggest that new work will be unveiled on 23 August 2017.
The Quietus have also reported on the announcement – noting that the statement seems to distance The KLF from the YouTube clips which have been linked to them across the past week.
The poster is headed up by K2 Plant Hire Ltd (who we’ve found is a private company registered in Middlesex). It seems to suggest that The KLF are returning as The Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu, one of Drummond and Cauty’s previous aliases.
Check out a transcript of the poster below as well as Cally Callomon’s tweeted discovery.
“2017: What The Fuck Is Going On?
“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 the previous 23 years.
“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 August 2017.
