The KLF return after 23-year absence

North of England Correspondent

The abrupt retirement of anarchic electronic band The KLF in 1994 was described as the “most heroic act of public self-destruction in the history of pop”. Signing off with a stunt in which they set fire to one million pounds, they deleted their back catalogue but promised to return after 23 years. That time is up and last night they drove into Liverpool to begin three days of events, starting with their very own version of a book signing.
