The KLF's Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty are back, in some form or another, this year as Justified Ancients of Mu Mu (one of their many pseudonyms) and they've just revealed a little of what's up their sleeves. Fact points out that a book titled 2023: A Trilogy will be released August 23 via Faber & Faber. The description:

Well we're back again,
They never kicked us out,
twenty thousand years of
SHOUT SHOUT SHOUT

Down through the epochs and out across the continents, generation upon generation of the Justified Ancients of Mu Mu have told variants of the same story - an end of days story, a final chapter story. But with one hope, even if the hope at times seems forlorn.
The story contained in this trilogy is the latest telling. Here it is presented as a utopian costume drama, set in the near future, written in the recent past.

Read with care.

Whether this book is what was alluded to in those posters in London, or there are more pieces to the puzzle, remain to be seen. Cover art for the book, and the video for "What Time is Love?," below.
