Profile:
The earliest incarnation of the Bill Drummond/James Cauty collaboration that had most success as the Kopyright Liberation Front (KLF). The name comes from the Robert Anton Wilson & Robert Shea books, "The Illuminatus! Trilogy". The Justified Ancients of Mummu (JAMs) were the underground (underwater!) anarchist collective spearheaded by Hagbard Celine, who fights the Illuminati from a golden submarine, the Leif Ericson. In the book, Mu is another name for the vanished Atlantis and Lemuria. Drummond was involved in the stage production of "Illuminatus!" in 1976.

Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty were the finest artists of the latter half of the 20th century. Not just musicians, Artists. Music can't contain the scope of what they accomplished in this world.
