Worthy of discussing in more detail, it would be great if more people could find a few interesting sentences to say about the tracks they are posting to get people engaged.

The KLF are one of the most extraordinary acts to have ever graced the music industry, and anyone slightly interested should start at their Wikipedia page and go on from there. Destroying every copy of their debut album after a failed meeting with ABBA, pioneering an underground genre and simultaneously topping the UK pop charts, the 1992 Brit Awards performance, burning a million quid... each of these events has had books and documentaries made about them, and that's by no means their complete history. And all from endlessly recycling a small number of tracks across every record they made.

They are active again right now, uploading their official videos and some lost bits and bobs to Youtube for the first time. They are also behind an art project to build a giant pyramid of bricks containing people's ashes in Liverpool, added to gradually in an annual ceremony which is intended to continue for many years into the future after they themselves have departed.

(Edited to sound like less of a twat)

Youve definitely peaked my interest Hot Tuna, had no idea about any of this will give them a research and listen to more of their music.

Sorry to single out this thread/OP with my rant, it's the same for most of the stuff posted in here.
Holy shit, just read a bit through their Wiki page, fascinating stuff for sure. This one made me laugh out loud:

dumped a dead sheep at the aftershow party

Anyways, yeah, unfortunately not many are willing to write more than a few words on the tracks they post. I personally wish more people would write, for example, what tracks/artists mean to them, or some fascinating facts about them. At the end of the day, we can't force anybody to do so.
