Discordian Hymnal #023

Posted by : Rev. Ouabache | Thursday, January 28, 2010 | Published in

Let us all rise and open our Discordian Hymnal to Page #023, the holiest of holy songs, "Justified and Ancient" by The KLF (and Tammy Freakin' Wynette)



For those not initiated into the awesome powers of the KLF, I will quote from the Discordian holy book "A Pocket Full of Chaos":
The KLF- also known by various other names including The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu, The Timelords, The K Foundation, and 2K - were one of the seminal bands of the British acid house movement during the late 1980s and early 1990s.

They gained notoriety for various anarchic situationist manifestations which included billboard advert defacements; a Brit awards protest involving a machine gun, a dead sheep and buckets of blood; highly unique and abnormal performances on Top of the Pops; peculiar mainstream press adverts and regular full page ads in the NME; the staging of an alternative art award for the worst artist of the year; and burning a million pounds sterling.

The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu name was adopted in 1987 by Drummond and Cauty, fans of "The Illuminatus! Trilogy" books. They mirrored the fictional JAMs' gleeful political devices of causing chaos and confusion by bringing a direct, comical. Yet nevertheless ground-breaking approach to making records.
That's right, a band whose sole purpose in life was to tell everyone how awesome "The Illuminatus! Trilogy" is. If they don't deserve #23 (and #2, coincidentally) on this list, then no one does.

    I would also like to thank The Five for making all of this impossible!
