The K Foundation have been the victims of hoaxers who have released a CD and cassettes using their artwork. Among the various releases are a CD credited to X$X and entitled "The Black Room". This was the title of the aborted third KLF album, recorded with Extreme Noise Terror.
Some copies of the Cd currently in circulation contain only a voice saying "Dont Buy the Black Room". Other copies include some music. The back sleeve contains a message "Abandon All Art Now"-used in a K foundation ad-and the same box number address used in the K Foundation ads.
The cassettes include a more elaborate fake "1997"- echoing the title of KLF alter-ego The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu's "1987-What the Fuck is Going On?".
It features KLF samples and a track based on Michael Jackson's "Beat It" plus telephone conversations between a member of X$X and a voice purporting to be Bill Drummond's.
However a spokesman for the Foundation insisted last week that the duo "have left the music business" and hadnít recorded anything as the K foundation, with the exception of the notorious "K Cera Cera"- which, they have stated in one of their national press ads, will only be released when world peace has been achieved."
