So, yeah this documentary has been floating around online for a moment now, but we've only just had it bought to our attention; in the early 90s, film maker Robert Milton Wallace found himself onset with the KLF as they recorded a couple of mega budget videos for the tracks Justified & Ancient and What Time is Love. He edited his fly-on-the-wall footage together into a half hour documentary that makes a pretty incredible period piece, which you can watch on Vimeo.
Wallace has captured a pretty crazy time in the music industry - bands were spending huge budgets on videos (the KLF are shooting in the 007 set at Pinewood studios), and dance music was spreading from illegal parties to massive chart hits. The documentary captures a cast that seems to number in the hundreds; dancers dressed in bright yellow druid robes, a full troup of African drummers, and country icon Tammy Wynette being styled as a psychedelic valkerie by a young kid in a rave bomber jacket, all of them bound for Mu Mu land.
