Pre-millennium tension hits new high
By - (27 September, 1997, NME)
2K are believed to be behind the slogan, "1997 What The F---'s Going
On", that was daubed on the wall of London's National Theatre in the
early hours of Thursday morning (September 18).
The National Theatre on the South Bank was daubed with a similar
message ten years ago when Drummond and Cauty, then known as The
Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu, released the single "1987 What The F---'s
The night before the graffiti appeared, 2K's Bill Drummond and Jimmy
Cauty appeared at London's Barbican Centre - the first live gig since
1992. They performed new single "F--- The Millennium", which is a
reworking of their former hit "What Time Is Love".
Nich McHugh, from the National Theatre, told NME: "It's in the hands
of the police. We noticed it on Thursday morning at about 1.30. We
have absolutely no idea what it means. We originally though it might
be disgruntled Diana fans.
"We're not especially irritated by it. It's unfortunate they decided
to use the National as a target. Someone will have to clean it off
today. But it's caused the minimum of inconvenience."
McHugh, woh said he had heared of The KLF but not 2K, said that there
were no security cameras on that side of the building. He added that
the theatre had had no complaints and noone had come in asking what
the message meant.
