Further details emerge of mysterious book

Following a number of cryptic transmissions from Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty of late, some further details have emerged of their plans for the year.

The novel, to be released by Faber, will be available from August 23. You can read the full quotes from the press release below and check out our recent Strange World Of... The KLF feature here.
