On The Current Rise Of Cheap KLF Bootlegs

Ever since The KLF left the music business (and even before that) bootlegs of rare and sought-after releases have been floating around. Some of them  have been labours of love, others rather blatant cash grabs with the line between those two getting blurry sometimes. What they mostly have in common is that they are either scarce enough to not devalue the originals or at least of reasonable quality.

Lately a commercial seller by the name of Big Blue Media has started flooding eBay with custom bootlegs of either proper KLF Comms releases or self-compiled sets of tracks under a common theme.Some of them have already been bought and resold at ridiculous prices despite neither including anything of obvious rarity nor looking like any effort has been put into them.

Be advised that these are not official KLF Communications releases. We can only recommend not to support this kind of blatantly ripping of other people by tricking them into thinking they will receive a “rare DJ only promo CD” suddenly popping up in huge amounts 24 years after The KLF have split.

Several people (including us) have already reported those auctions in the past. So far eBay hasn’t deemed it necessary to act on the issue. At this point we can only continue to report new listings and encourage people to invest their money more wisely.
