Ok, as you may well know, Martin's a big fan of music history. This week, he decided to talk about the interrelated JAMs/Timelords/KLF. Yes, a lot of their history had to deal with copyright issues which does amaze me that 20 years later, we are still fighting over music downloads and seeing the de-evolution of the recording industry. I digress. The band had their greatest hit (U.K. #1 single) mixing samples from the Doctor Who television series with a reworked version of Gary Glitter's "Rock & Roll Part II" as the Timelords on "Doctorin' The Tardis" which we feature and an often forgotten song by Edelweiss' "Bring Me Edelweiss." Where does that fit in? Well, they just happen to be an 80's act that also scored a #1 hit following the band's directions in their book The Manual. Feel free to put that under Martin's tree for Christmas.
