Josef KLF Mackenzie

I vaguely remember seeing Josef K in the late 70s/early 80s? They still sound fresh today and are enjoying somewhat of a revival thanks to the renewed interest in arty pop type stuff from that period due to the ubiquitous Franz and chums. Radical culture terrorists the KLF, who, in a previous incarnation as The Timelords, so revolted an aquaintance of mine that she almost turned off Top of the Pops in disgust after seeing them "Doctorin' the Tardis", should really have stuck around for Who Wants to be a Millionaire. Then they could have burned Chris Tarrant. Finally, thanks to Scott Kennedy for sending me this brilliant track from Goodbye Mr Mackenzie - Shirley Manson's previous group before she joined Garbage. Smashing.

Josef K - It's Kinda Funny
The KLF - What Time is Love?
Goodbye Mr Mackenzie - The Rattler
Good man! This was about the only Josef K record I liked. I tried to get into them but they were just too scratchy and morose, I much preferred Orange Juice.
