British indie icons The Wedding Present have rerecorded their album, George Best, with producer Steve Albini to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their 1987 album. According to BrooklynVegan, the album was rerecorded almost a decade ago but will finally arrive this year.
After teasing fans all week, The KLF are indeed back but are going under a new name - Justified Ancients of Mu Mu aka JAMS. In a statement released on a series of posters around London, the band said: "What is known is: The Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu have zero involvement with any video clips, films, recorded music, documentary productions, biographies, West End musicals or social media chatter relating to the letters K L or F, now or at any other time over the previous 23 years. Furthermore: The Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu have no interest in anything that seeks to comment on, bounce off, glorify, debunk or resurrect their historical work. The Justified Ancients Of Mu Mu are currently at work in their light industrial unit. This work will not be made public until the 23rd August 2017."
