Back again for the 100.000th visitor (a little too late !!!!!) KLF / JAMs

Since I started that online tracking device last year in June now more than 100,000 people have visited my blog, a few thousand did before.
That feels nice, combined with the number of downloads, many hundreds for some files. I don't want to become complaining like in my last post (NOBODY felt inclined to add to my costs), but some aid would be nice.

To celebrate the 100,000th visitor I wanted to post something special:

The KLF aka The JAMs aka The Justified Ancients of MuMu

I bought 1987 by The JAMs on July 7th 1988 in a record shop in Braunschweig, Gabi's Plattenkiste. I came there often and digged down in the crates. This wasn't even there, it was already sorted out and in a box on the floor, together with the 12" All you need is love, ready to be shipped back to the company.

I could talk the clerk to selling me the records anyway, although officially she had to send the records back to the company. Unfortunately Bill Drummond and Jim Cauty had decided to include some ABBA samples in their crude mix of Rap and political music. Therefore they had to destroy all the stock. They did so in Sweden without meeting ABBA.

The manual
K Foundation

and the best of them all :

The KLF.de

They auctioned the last five examples of the original 1987 albums in the April 1988 edition of "The FACE", the style bible of the 80's, so it took the record industry some time to get the remaining records. But I got one!!!! I will add the ad as soon as I get back to my archive back home.

Unfortunately for my idea, I had to find out, that Brotbeutel has posted a link to a site that has this online for years.

But these are my definitely original 1987 and the "All you need is love" 12" and as a bonus you get many nice things with the LP, many pictures and texts, you know Robert Wilson?

The JAMs - 1987 LP

The JAMs All you need is love 12"

All the afficionados of german New Wave and Punk will soon be gratified for their endurance...

Two LPs by a band from Düsseldorf, and they are not Die Toten Hosen...
You guess???

Labels: ,

l.a. duesseldorf !!


So it wasn't LA Düsseldorf, but ZK. I thought about Neu! Anyway, this here is the KLF section. Thanks for this extraordinary post and the story that goes along with it. Very interesting.
And, hmm, I guess you keep the bitrate so low, because you want people to donate for more bandwidth? Sorry, I can't help, not enough Pinke Pinke in my own bank account...

The bitrate is so "low", because I encode in MP3Plus, where you get good sound quality at lower bitrates than with the normal MP3 codec and it keeps the files smaller.
