The KLF want you to burn the Shard

The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu aka The KLF aka Rockman Rock and KingBoy D aka The Timelords aka Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty have invited all comers to do one thing in November: Burn the Shard.


Now, we assume that "Shard" is the eponymous monument to capitalism in London, but it could be anything else. In typically secretive fashion, the duo have released a video which contains no information other than a date.

Produced in association with Liverpool music/culture magazine Bido Lito, the video invites people to gather in London on 23/11/17 (23 being a significant number to authors including Burroughs and Illuminatus author Robert Anton Wilson, and frequently used in previous JAMs work). Now, we assume that the rather cheap-looking video is an invitation to all-comers to build a Shard-like pyre somewhere in an open space - perhaps Battersea Park, close to Jimmy Cauty's old flat.

But, who knows? We'll find out in only a couple of weeks from now. If you're looking to go along, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
