Hi all

All posts by someone parading as SKA333, SKAM333, DL333 or DarkLord333 are hoaxes.

I am ashamed of them. My name is Lionel D de Lillie. I was Lionel D until i couldn't log in anymore. Then i became De Lillie.

Now i don't understand what went on, but i had to dismantle physics808@webmail.co.za and block my mobile cellphone +2741 666 333
because of the havoc a hacker (who i trusted and who misused my good nature) wrecked on my life.

Sorry

Have 808 ever met the KLF? Apparently the KLF sample "Pacific" somewhere in the 44min "Chil Out" album (according to Wikipedia). Then we have 808 / Tunes and KLF sampling "The Big Country". Plus KLF have a 808 Base mix of either WTIL or 3AM and according to RC magazine "Tunes Splits The Atom" samples 3AM.

Well both groups sample well, like, just about anything. (OK on their early stuff only) and both groups create live versions by adding crowd noise to studio concoctions. Both groups release different UK, JP and US pressings of the same release and both groups rename their tracks at will.

And finally. Nicky Locket and Drummond sure ain't no Eminem. Oh now finally, both groups have promised repackages of early work which never materialises :wink:

In light of this, I've (temporarily) disabled Lionel's accounts.

Oh, what a shame. The thick didn't plotten. 808 KLF States in my mind.

KLF were never that good though. Not good like Pacific 202 good.

My opinion of course.

But I think their theories on how to act are a bit weird. Burning money. Stopping to make music & removing all records from all corners. Just because.

I mean, why?

Music should be timeless.

Hi all

I remember the old RC article (circa 1990?) mentionting that BOTH 808 State and the KLF sampled the Theme from The Big Country and that 808 State sampled "the computer bleeps from 3AM Eternal" on Tunes Splits The Atom. Sounds very Atariescque / Sonicish to me though.

I thought both tunes sampled (or at least copied) the bleeps from 'Testone' by Sweet Exorcist.

The KLF always had more of a novelty factor than 808 State. Still I always wondered why the 'Lift' video mentioned the KLF...it could be some house music reference (LFO mention them in the intro of their album 'Frequencies').

Absolutely! :D

I always thought (from interviews/articles/etc) that "3AM Eternal" sampled "Tunes Splits The Atom", and that both bands have a mutual admiration for each other...

there was a KLF video (for Last Train To Trancentral, as found on the Stadium House trilogy) that used the flyers for the 808 State Turbo Rave as part of the background to the train set that was going round. i always just thought it was a bit of cheeky rivalry between both bands at the time.

Nice clip! Cheers G.

I agree, the Cubik Pan Am is the best version of Cubik IMO.
