Certain cynics will point fingers and whinge that the indies of today will be just the majors of tomorrow. We have all heard the old tale about how it was the downtrodden working class background that provided the true grit passion in the artist’s work that won the hearts and minds of the masses.

The way that recording studios base their rates (what they want you to pay them) can vary from studio to studio.

This is short enough to be engrossing and whet anyone's appetite, but might not be detailed enough to truly delve into everything people would like to about the topics within. All that is happening is that the new young, waving fields of corn are allowed to grow full and ripe before a very strange combined harvester will come along and pick the few lucky ears of corn while the rest of the field cheer, whither and die. In their case, they simply lifted entire bits of famous songs without permission, which often led to legal action.

People equate a Number One with fame, endless wealth and easy sex – a myth that they want to believe and one that the popular press want to see continued. I really really respect Matt’s views on all sorts of issues (mainly to do with bond trading and desk politics, admittedly, but also music) so I concluded it must be me. It is a story about Carl Jung, Alan Moore, Robert Anton Wilson, Ken Campbell, Dada, Situationism, Discordianism, magic, chaos, punk, rave and the alchemical symbolism of Doctor Who.Higgs takes as the pivot for this book the most notorious event of The KLF’s career: when they deliberately destroyed one million pounds worth of banknotes in a fire on a remote Scottish island.

So, if one of these ensembles find themselves in the higher regions of the charts and their sights are set on the Top Spot, their fellow subcult members interpret this as the Walls of Jericho finally crumbling, or at the very least, their boys working as moles from the a fiction novel written by Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty and released in August 2017 under their JAMS moniker. Listen to what they all have to say but take nothing as gospel; you are going to have to start building up your own picture of how it all moves. The computer will assist by giving the engineer at least an extra twenty two hands and twenty four perfect memories – an obvious added bonus in these techno days. Was this destruction of the remaining savings from their music career - “the act they can never explain or get over” - some form of confrontational artistic statement?
