The Null Device

3RRR just played the long version of The KLF's America: What Time Is Love?. That's not the neat acid-house/trance version you're probably familiar with, but nine minutes or so, with an intro, grinding guitars (apparently a Motörhead sample) and a middle bit which goes into Wagnerian operatic territory. Very cool. Now if only I could find a MP3 of it somewhere.

If you find that MP3 i'd really like to hear it.

Apparently it's around on Gnutella.

What needs to rear its head is an original copy of "1987: What the F*** is going on?" by the KLF's original incarnation, the Justified Ancients of Mu Mu....

There were MP3s of that on Napster, or somewhere else. It shouldn't be too hard to find.

I've got copies myself, but don't have anywhere to put them online (well, not anywhere that I wouldn't mind losing).

Good to know it's still out there.

Of course, if all else fails, there's always AudioGalaxy. There are a lot of rarities there to be found; more than on the less music-specific networks.

well, if you use Windows, you can expect to be virussed, wormed, spammed, spied on and otherwise screwed over... :-) So far nobody has seen the value of putting spyware in no-frills, UI-less Linux clients like AGSatelite or the (now defunct) KaZaA client.
