Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty use bill poster to announce new activity

The Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu - formerly known as the KLF, The JAMS etc - have issued an official communication announcing a return to activity after a break of 23 years, according to a tweet from the Eastfolk Chronicle.

The poster, which appears to herald the next chapter of Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty's artistic practice together, was spotted down Kingsland Road, Hackney, London earlier this morning.

As well as announcing their return in August, the communique strove to distance the pair from a hemp-fragranced compilation of youtube clips suggesting the KLF were reforming which has been circulating on social media recently.

The poster, under the heading, "K2 Plant Hire Ltd", reads, in full:

"2017: What The Fuck Is Going On?

"It is almost 23 years since the Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu announced a self imposed and self important 23 year moratorium. The reasons for the moratorium have now been lost in time, space, and a rusting shipping container somewhere near Sizewell B Nuclear Power Station.

"What is known is:

"The Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu have zero involvement with any video clips, films, recorded music, documentary productions, biographies, West End musicals or social media chatter relating to the letters K L or F, now or at any other time over the previous 23 years.


"The Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu have no interest in anything that seeks to comment on, bounce off, glorify, debunk or resurrect their historical work.

"The Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu are currently at work in their light industrial unit. This work will not be made public until the 23rd August 2017.
