SHOUT SHOUT SHOUT
Down through the epochs and out across the continents, generation upon generation of the Justified Ancients of Mu Mu have told variants of the same story – an end of days story, a final chapter story. But one with hope, even if the hope at times seems forlorn.
The story contained in this trilogy is the latest telling. Here it is presented as a utopian costume drama, set in the near future, written in the recent past.
Read with care.

This book . . . comes right on cue: a sharp reminder that all the pomp and circumstance of the music industry, all the greed of consumer culture and the occult power of finance that the KLF flew in the face of two decades ago, has only continued to grow and mutate in their absence.
A brain-searing, gender-inverted metafiction that addresses the internet’s takeover of reality, the power of capital and the myths of birth, it stars Lady Gaga, Alan Moore and chidren’s book favourite The Tiger Who Came To Tea, plus a teeth-jarring, life-from-death climax.
The KLF are officially back, as wicked and inscrutable as ever.
Bill and Jimmy’s ill-behaved and darkly jocular meta-fictional spectacular . . . a bewildering-but-compelling cosmic joke of a book, a book which also offers sombre, sobering rumination on the catastrophic fairytale of our existence . . .  is cast in the fluent, page-turning prose that Bill is known for . . . It’s a work of immense comic megalomania, but one that blends with the absurdism with a plausible undertow of profundity. It’s a countercultural novel that fondly, funnily explodes the insider codes of countercultural cool . . . This book balances any faux dumb-ass-ery with hard-won wisdom.
