Profile:

Finnish label invented by Bill Drummond and Mark Manning to release a series of 7" singles inspired by their novel Bad Wisdom. Failing to find any real Lapp punk or Arctic soul acts like the ones they described in the book, Bill & Z invented the acts and hired musicians and singers in Helsinki to record the songs.

Only six singles were released, limited to 500 copies each. The tracks came from the unreleased Bad Wisdom soundtrack album, Huono Viisaus, which also included a cover of Immigrant Song by ice bikers Molten Rock and songs by Kristina Bruuk and Gormenghast.

    The label 99% of KLF fans don't even know about.
    9 x 7" singles only, singles are by mostly Bill Drummond, Jimmy Cauty, Gimpo (The klfs roadie mate), Mark Manning (aka Zodiac Mindwarp) and others. I like them all but collecting the set ain't going to be cheap folks.
