The KLF - 3 A. M. Eternal [Extended NF Rework Edition]

El duo compuesto por James Francis Cauty y William Ernest Drummond. J. F. Cauty nació en Devon, Inglaterra; W. E. Drummond nació en Sudáfrica, pero se crió en un área fronteriza con Escocia.
KLF adoptó la filosofía expuesta por la esotérica serie de novelas The Illuminatus Trilogy, ganando notoriedad por diversas manifestaciones anárquicas, incluyendo la desfiguración de los anuncios de la cartelera, la publicación de anuncios encriptados y actuaciones altamente distintivas e inusuales en Top of the Pops. Su actuación más notoria fue una colaboración con Extreme Noise Terror en los Brit Awards de febrero de 1992, donde tiraron una oveja muerta al público. En esta actuación anunciaron su salida del negocio de la música, y en mayo de 1992, el dúo eliminó la totalidad de su catálogo.
Con las ganancias del proyecto KLF, Drummond y Cauty establecieron la Fundación K y trataron de entrar en el mundo del arte. Su puesta en escena les reportó un premio de arte alternativo por los peores artistas del año y para celebrarlo quemaron un millón de libras esterlinas.
KLF también publicaron un libro, The Manual, y están trabajando en una película llamada The White Room.

Duo composed of James Francis Cauty and William Ernest Drummond. Cauty was born in Devon, England; Drummond was born in South Africa but grew up in the Borders area of Scotland.
KLF adopted the philosophy espoused by esoteric novel series The Illuminatus! Trilogy, gaining notoriety for various anarchic situationist manifestations, including the defacement of billboard adverts, the posting of prominent cryptic advertisements in NME magazine and the mainstream press, and highly distinctive and unusual performances on Top of the Pops. Their most notorious performance was a collaboration with Extreme Noise Terror at the February 1992 BRIT Awards, where they fired machine gun blanks into the audience and dumped a dead sheep at the aftershow party. This performance announced The KLF's departure from the music business, and in May 1992 the duo deleted their entire back catalogue.
With The KLF's profits, Drummond and Cauty established the K Foundation and sought to subvert the art world, staging an alternative art award for the worst artist of the year and burning one million pounds sterling. Although Drummond and Cauty remained true to their word of May 1992—the KLF Communications catalogue remains deleted in the UK—they have released a small number of new tracks since then, as the K Foundation, The One World Orchestra and most recently, in 1997, as 2K.
KLF also published a book, The Manual, and worked on a road movie called The White Room.
