Choon Choosday: The KLF – America No More

21 June, 2016

I really enjoy posting these links every week. I have no agenda, I just choose a track each Tuesday and share it with you. I’ve had an occasional series of Choons by bands I hate, but this week I started wondering – is there one I can post in a genre I hate? I had a quick think about whether there is in fact a genre that I would never listen to and it didn’t take me long to come up with bagpipe music. Gosh darn it, I hate bagpipes.

But about three seconds later I remembered one of my favourite tracks by my all-time favourite band. Only The KLF could combine a bagpipe marching band, sounds of warfare and soundbites from George Bush (as well as anti-George Bush soundbites and clips of other Presidents) and produce a piece of music / statement / sound collage in a musical style that I don’t think even has a name.

Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty are musicians and situationist artists both ahead of their time and separate from any artistic time. They work within their own space, defining genres yet also deconstructing genres. They are both artists and anti-artists. And they created this, an exceptional, unique, uncategorisable
