Who Killed The KLF? Unclassified 15+
Audiences are bound for Mu Mu Land as a line-up of house music heroes gives the low-down on the greatest and most mysterious dance outfit in history.
The KLF burst onto the scene in the 1980s with their sample-heavy stadium house records that sold millions. They left the industry just as explosively, notoriously burning one million pounds and shooting machine-gun blanks at a BRIT Awards crowd. A musical outfit and anti-capitalist art duo that entranced ravers and the radio-friendly masses in equal measure, they were the Banksy of their time. From the acid house track ‘3 a.m. Eternal’ and the Tammy Wynette–featuring ‘Justified & Ancient’ to the Doctor Who novelty hit ‘Doctorin’ the Tardis’, there’s never been any band quite like The KLF.
Music producer Paul Oakenfold and DJ Carl Cox are on hand to give audiences added insight into what it was like to be under the spell of these electronic pioneers, while previously unheard commentary from The KLF’s famously private band members take us deeper behind the scenes. Marvellously lively and fittingly unauthorised, Who Killed The KLF? shines a spotlight on these music pioneers who have changed the world – and who have now deleted their entire catalogue from it.
“Atkins, with help from journos, band associates, vintage interviews and truly nutty music videos, paints a highly entertaining picture of The KLF’s ascent to druggy dance-floor dominance.” – Hollywood Reporter
