This is the story of The KLF, told through the ideas that drove them. It is a story about Carl Jung, Alan Moore, Robert Anton Wilson, Ken Campbell, Dada, Situationism, Discordianism, magic, chaos, punk, rave and the alchemical symbolism of Doctor Who.
Wildly unauthorised and totally unlike any other music biography, ‘KLF: Chaos Magic Music Money’ is a trawl through chaos on the trail of a beautiful accidental mythology.
"By far the best book this year, brilliant, discursive and wise." - Ben Goldacre
“Book of the Century. Most pop biographies are a dull patchwork of clippings - this is something else.” – Rob Manuel, B3ta
"Might well be the best music book of the 2010s... eccentric, bizarre, confusing, hilarious and more than a little pretentious but utterly irresistible and totally brilliant." - The Quietus
“Contender for book of the year.” – Greg Taylor, Daily Grail
“This book is like a KLF track. It takes all kinds of junk and nonsense and smashes it together into something that not only makes sense but is weirdly beautiful.” – El Dink
“[Higgs] has channelled the spirit of Robert Anton Wilson in the form of a rock biography and invented a new genre along the way.” – CJ Stone, Author of ‘The Trials of Arthur’ and ‘Fierce Dancing’
“So good it actually made me feel queasy.” - Magda Knight, Mookychick
