Editorial Reviews

Review

By far the best book this year, brilliant, discursive and wise -- Ben Goldacre Book of the Century. Most pop biographies are a dull patchwork of clippings - this is something else -- Rob Manuel B3ta Might well be the best music book of the 2010s... eccentric, bizarre, confusing, hilarious and more than a little pretentious but utterly irresistible and totally brilliant The Quietus This wildly entertaining thesis speculates on how the KLF arrived at a crowning act of transgression even they did not understand, drawing together threads including practical magic, strange patterns of coincidence and punk. MOJO The book brilliant captures the anti-establishment attitude of Drummond and Cauty, and makes you wish the pop charts were full of such madness these days. THE BIG ISSUE Higgs approaches the short career of the early 90s top 10 provocateurs like Adam Curtis brainstorming with Thomas Pynchon, exploring all manner of magical thinking and conspiracy theories. Touching on Dada, Doctor Who and Discordianism, it's as playful and sui generis as the KLF themselves, which is saying something. -- Dorian Lynskey THE GUARDIAN John Higgs's The KLF: Chaos, Magic and the Band Who Burned a Million Pounds succeeds by ignoring music for much of the story, in favour of the group's philosophical and psycho-geographical underpinnings in discordianism, situationism, art and magic. Sometimes, the music is just a means to an end - in their case, a million-quid bonfire that Higgs suggests may be "a magical act that forged the 21st century". Well, maybe... THE INDEPENDENT John Higgs's book about the KLF is - like its subject - a thing of endlessly fascinating, utterly demented genius Alexis Petridis I am going to bang on about The KLF: Chaos, Magic and the Band who Burned a Million Pounds rather a lot. Fascinating... Enthralling. -- ROBIN INCE
