Ooh, I'm buying the hell outta this!
Maybe 'they' will get around to 90's stuff now, 'cause I'm tired of seeing only the geriatric 60's and 70's bands on BD. That, and unlistenable growling and howling called 'prog rock'. :spoil:
Anyone interested in the KLF might also be interested in the documentary 'Who killed the KLF' . As an aside my favourite album was Chill out...
