In 1990 pop music still had room for eccentric nutters larking about. Here’s Bill Drummond embarrassing himself pretending to play a keyboard on KLF’s What Time Is Love?
In the second clip, he’s wisely used all the money he earned to splash out on quasi-religious robes and giant rhino horns in a bid to hide himself from view. It worked, you can barely spot him.
Watching these clips makes me suspect that in some ways the good old days were better…certainly music TV. I can’t imagine this kind of nonsense on Joolz Holland.
Incidentally, Bill wrote a book a while back called 45, kind of a handbook for middle aged men who should know better. Well worth a read.
