The influential dance music duo comprise of Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty.

While Drummond was born in South Africa, he moved to Corby from Scotland aged 11.

He later enrolled on an art foundation course at Northampton School of Art which was a predecessor of the University of Northampton.

Formed in 1987, The KLF released numerous albums, also recorded as The Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu and had a number one single in 1988 as The Timelords with Doctorin’ The Tardis.

The pair deleted their entire back catalogue in 1992 and it has been officially unavailable until now.

The KLF famously ‘exited’ the music industry that year following a performance at the Brit Awards where they teamed up with grindcore act Extreme Noise Terror for a performance of 3AM Eternal.

During the performance, they fired blanks from machine guns towards the audience – before an announcement of “The KLF have left the music business” as they walked off stage.

They later left a dead sheep on the steps of an after-show party.

In August 1994, Drummond and Cauty - working together as the K Foundation - burned £1m on the Scottish island of Jura.

Posters which have been put up in London have suggested The KLF will reissue more music this year.
