Timelords gentlemen, please!

By - (16 May, 1992, NME)

THE KLF have terminated their activities, as predicted in last week's NME. Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty have issued a statement confirming that there will be no further record releases from the pair as The KLF, The Timelords or any of their other previous guises.

The statement, issued under their aliases Rockman Rock and Kingboy D, explains their vanishing act in cryptic terms. It says: "We have been following a wild and wounded, glum and glorious, shit but shining path these past five years, the last two of which has led us up onto the comercial high ground. We are at a point now where the path is about to take a sharp turn from these sunny uplands down to a netherworld of we know not what."

Drummond and Cauty first appeared as the sample-attack provocateurs The Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu (The JAMs) in 1987 and went on to have a Number One hit as The Timelords with 1988's "Doctorin' The Tardis". Last year, as The KLF, they released the internationally successful "The White Room" LP, which spawned four Top Five hits, including their "3 AM Eternal" Number One, and established The KLF as the biggest selling singles band in the world.

The band's self-destruction was not entirely unexpected. Their controversial machine gun toting performance at this February's BRITS music industry awards, where they were voted best British Band, concluded with an announcement that "The KLF have left the music business", followed by the kamikaze gesture of dumping a dead sheep outside the awards ceremony hotel.

It is widely expected that Drummond and Cauty, whose whereabouts are currently unknown, will return to musical activities at some point in the future, although their official statement points out that "our disguise may be complete".
