Deep Shit (Part 3) is an unreleased single and only exists in a limited run of six whitelabel pressings of which four allegedly made it into the wild.
The track itself opens on the intro of Kylie Said To Jason, switching into the Village People’s “YMCA” a few seconds later before getting harshly interrupted by a needle scratch and Bill Drummond shouting “Fuck that pop shit, what we want is some Deep Shit!” The track then changes into “The Queen And I” from 1987.
We wanted 1000 but the pressing plant refused to press any more because of the illegality of the old JAMS classic ‘The Queen And I’.
Check out the other side – ‘The Lover’s Side’ – it will be the follow-up to 3AM Eternal.
As only 4 of these have been sent out, I would appreciate your opinion and reaction to the track.Cressida Cauty (Deep Shit promo insert, 1989?)
One of these appeared on eBay in February 2020, eventually changing hands for an impressive £4,356.
Since the original flexi remains unreleased it’s impossible to tell how similar that version is to Deep Shit (Part 3), though the KSTJ intro strongly implies that it’s not simply a verbose copy of the original track.

The catalogue number KLF 010IT is derived from the single’s runout groove, though it has been listed as KLF 010IR (“Illegal Remix”) in the past as well. Both are likely to be a reference to KLF 010 from which Deep Shit (Part 3) “borrows” its intro.

Does anyone know who the four copies were sent to?
The one we know about ended up at a friend of Jimmy’s – that’s where we got our MD recording from.
There’s one on Discogs but we don’t know if that’s the same one or one of the other three.
I see a copy, think it’s the discogs one, has popped up on ebay, still going at nearly £850, shall we have a crowd funder to buy it, if only so we can all get a better audio copy than we have now :D, the one I have, which I’ve no idea where it came from is shocking quality!
Seeing how it ended on £4,356 that would have required quite the crowd… 😀
Yeah , I know , I do hope it survives in transit to the new owner ! I’d be hiring a security company to hand deliver me that
someone appears to be selling original stamper discs of this on ebay at the moment!
