Discography

This is just a short list of The KLF’s main releases. Their later catalogue naturally spreads over countless variants and different releases in multiple countries, especially once the Stadium House period began, but we decided not to include all of them here for sanity reasons.

Albums

  • Cover : 1987 (What The Fuck Is Going On?)
    Following the single “All You Need Is Love”, the Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu’s first album “1987 (What The Fuck Is Going On?)” continued the style of heavy sampling and Kingboy D’s Scottish raps. The inclusion of and stir caused by “The Queen And I” [...]
  • Cover : 1987 (The JAMS 45 Edits)
    Edited (free of dangerously illegal samples) version of 1987 LP. Includes free instructions on how to add your own samples and recreate the original release in the privacy and comfort of your own home or studio.  
  • Cover : Who Killed The JAMS?
    While critics might label this as ‘more of the same’ the follow-up album to “1987” saw the Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu refine their style, with the single “Burn The Bastards” hinting at the musical path the duo would travel down in the not too [...]
  • Cover : Shag Times
    Compilation album gathering various JAMS singles as well as a number of alternate versions and remixes. The second disc has been rumoured to be the unreleased “Towards The Trance” album listed in some KLF info sheets.
  • Cover : The “What Time Is Love” Story
    Six-track mini compilation released in the wake of the success of “What Time Is Love?” in Europe, gathering various cover versions as well as a live version performed by The KLF at Land Of Oz.
  • Cover : Chill Out
  • Cover : Space

    Space

    1990
    Started life as a collaboration between Jimmy Cauty and Alex Paterson before the latter left the project to work on The Orb fulltime. Cauty then (allegedly) deleted Paterson’s contribution and released the album as Space instead.
  • Cover : The White Room
    The album that catapulted The KLF into mega-stardom. Spawned three hit singles of which one (3 a.m. Eternal) got them to Number One in the UK (their second after Doctorin’ The Tardis).

Singles

  • Cover : All You Need Is Love (original)
    The one which started it all. Released as a while label run of 500 copies only. The original version slightly differs from the later releases on “1987” and “Shag Times” as it uses the original MC5/Beatles samples during the intro.
  • Cover : All You Need Is Love (106bpm)
    Commercial release in proper picture sleeve with the MC5/Beatles samples removed from the intro. Samantha Fox samples still intact, though.
  • Cover : Whitney Joins The J.A.Ms
    First single following the release of “1987”, though not included on the later released “Who Killed The JAMS?” album.
  • Cover : I Gotta CD
    First release of the Disco 2000 side project.
  • Cover : Down Town
    Gospel singers, Petula Clark samples, Scottish raps – it’s all in here.
  • Cover : Deep Shit (Further Adventures Of The JAMS)
    Unreleased single. Was supposed to come with a “Deep Shit” comic book drawn by Jimmy.
  • Cover : Burn The Bastards
    First single released under their KLF moniker, though released as “The JAMs aka The Timelords” in the USA to link it to the “History Of The JAMs” compilation.
  • Cover : One Love Nation
    Second Disco 2000 single, strongly based on The JAMS’ “The Candystore” (see “Who Killed The JAMS?”).
  • Cover : Doctorin’ The Tardis
    Probably the most nauseating record in the world, “Doctorin’ The Tardis” saw The Timelords climb to #1 in 1988. Built around the “Doctor Who” theme and Gary Glitter’s “Rock And Roll”.
  • Cover : What Time Is Love? (Pure Trance Original)
    One of the cornerstones of The KLF’s history. “What Time Is Love?” was meant to kick off The KLF’s Pure Trance’ series but failed to gain significant recognition in the UK at first until it became a hit single in European clubs.
  • Cover : Last Train To Trancentral (Pure Trance Original)
    2000 pressed, 1000 warped. See FAQ for information on existing bootlegs.
  • Cover : 3 a.m. Eternal (Live At The S.S.L.)
  • Cover : 3 a.m. Eternal (The Moody Boys Selection)
