Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu announce summer return
By Andy Malt | Published on Friday 6 January 2017
Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty have announced that they will return as The Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu later this year. Better known as The KLF, the duo announced the news via a poster in Dalston.
Published by The Quietus after being ‘discovered’ by Eastfolk Chronicle editor Cally Callomon (whose role as Drummond’s manager is purely coincidental), the poster reads: “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”.
They also distanced themselves from a video which recently appear on YouTube, prompting rumours of their return, saying: “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. Furthermore, 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”.
Historical work out of the picture, they note: “The Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu are currently at work in their light industrial unit. This work will not be made public until the 23 Aug 2017”.
So put that date in your diary. In the interim, communication is invited via K2 Plant Hire Ltd, the company set up by Drummond and Cauty in the mid-90s and used in the promotion of their 1997 single ‘Fuck The Millennium’ under the name 2K.
There’s now a website, which may or may not be official.
