The KLF Come to Streaming for the First Time

Enigmatic UK group the KLF have surfaced, officially releasing a selection of songs to streaming services for the first time. The eight-track compilation Solid State Logik 1 appeared without fanfare on the first day of 2021, nearly three decades after they delivered an outrageous performance at the 1992 BRIT Awards, fired machine-gun blanks into the audience, announced “The KLF have left the music business,” and later deleted their entire catalog. (It briefly reappeared in 2013.) A handful of mysterious flyers in London point to the arrival on streaming, without adding much context, as BBC News points out.

Four more releases are planned, according to a typically gnomic description on the band’s YouTube page. They collect songs released as the Justified Ancients of Mu Mu and the Timelords, as well as the KLF. Listen to Solid State Logik 1 below and check out Pitchfork’s Sunday Review of Chill Out.
