Is it worth getting?
There is only a brief mention of The KLF on a single page but it’s a rather interesting one of Bill Drummond explaining the thinking behind their song “3 a.m. Eternal”. Unless you are interested in the overall topic of Hodgkinson’s book it might be hard to justify picking up a new copy for one single paragraph, though.
