Turn Up The Strobe: The KLF, The Jams, The Timelords ~ A History

Description

During a ten year period bridging the 1980s and 1990s, Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty created pop masterpieces at a prodigious pace, leaving behind a body of work unlike anything created before or since. From international hit singles and legal wrangles with ABBA to mysterious rituals conducted on far-flung corners of the British Isles & abandoned road movies, the duo questioned, accused & entertained in equal measure. Never before had one band possessed the power or inclination to excite high street nightclubs & the contemporary art world simultaneously. ? Turn Up The Strobe tells the story of two of the Twentieth Century's most vital artists, and those who understood them. A story of success, fear, ego, power, graffiti, house music, independence, control, disaster, the Roland TR-808, love, sheep, marketing, God, death, 12" vinyl records, escape, freedom, populism, a Ford Galaxie & the money & fame all of these things attract. ? Exploring the making of the men, the work they embarked on & the people who helped them realise it, Turn Up The Strobe is the first in-depth history of The KLF, packed with new and exclusive interviews, illuminating research and insightful commentary. Ian Shirley respectfully charts the journey from youthful adventures in pop music and elsewhere towards the Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu, The Timelords and the chart-topping monster The KLF became.
