KLF Musicians Return

August 29, 1997 12:00 AM ET

Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty, best known as "stadium house" act KLF, are returning to the music business. In their latest incarnation, 2K, they are due to stage a performance Tuesday titled "For 23 Minutes Only" at London's Barbican Centre. The show will be recorded and released Sept. 22 as a single in the U.K. on an undetermined label. KLF (aka Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu) had six top-10 U.K. singles in 1990-92 on its KLF Communications label, including the No. 2 hit "Justified And Ancient" featuring Tammy Wynette. Drummond and Cauty are noted self-publicists: In 1992, they announced that they would delete their entire back catalog; the following year, they set up the K Foundation and moved into the art world; and in August 1994, they publicly burned a large mound of their own money.

Song Stories

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
