    Only release of theirs I ever got was Orbus Terrarum back in 1995. Always liked it b/c it served a purpose as one of the few ambient albums I've ever owned. So I would use it when studying, needing to zone out, sleep, etc.

    I used to use this albums as my "go to sleep" playlist when going to bed. It was a modest challenge to stay awake and listen to album consciously this time around...

    Seriously, go check out the Badorb.com - Bless You compilation. So smooth and far-out.

    Any thoughts on "The White Room" by The KLF?

    I've got the UK vinyl and the Canadian CD (and probably the single most listened to album/CD that I own... and oldest too, terms of I bought it probably in '93/'94 after the cassette I had of it died after buying that in '91).

    So yeah, I like it, what about you?

    (I prefer the UK vinyl due to the 'o' mixes and that seems to contribute to a better overall flow of the album...)

    ^^ Yeah, I'm a KLF fan. I guess the album that does it for me is Chill Out, it's quite wonderful. The chart toppers were great and all but it's the original pure trance versions and the more ambient tunes that I'm drawn to.
    This is a good book https://www.amazon.co.uk/Turn-Up-Str...8056817&sr=1-7 if you are interested in how the JAM's / Timelords and KLF came to be, how they made and promoted the music and the scene surrounding them during that time. Contains quite a bit of information on The Orb too.

    For the longest time I thought "Chillout" came out after "The White Room", they just sounded so different... but "Chillout" certainly has its ambient place in my life. Cool about the book, might check that out. Have you read their "2023" or "The KLF: Chaos, Magic and the Band who Burned a Million Pounds" by John Higgs?

    Heh, yeah... no.

    For me it was weird, I got into The KLF and then I was handed a book by the author that inspired them a year or two later... but it wasn't the book that inspired them (Illuminatus!), so I didn't become aware of their literary history until a few more years... and then I started to laugh a lot. Granted, by that time I was also already into Discordianism and the pieces of the puzzle finally made a picture that made sense to me. Sure, they already had a very profitable career previous to The KLF, but was their trancentral (which I maintain should be spelt TRANCEntral to make the silly joke more apparent, but the S.S.L. can still remain hidden) that kept me around.

    Related; I'd really like one of the Cauty riot happy face riot shields... really want one... but they are considered art and the import taxes to Canada on it were going to be almost as much as the item itself... I had to decline. For now.

    Yes, the riot shields are cool. That's a shame about the taxes you would need to pay. I wonder if them now being made in an open edition will lower used prices (i.e ebay)?
    I've got a couple of signed Cauty prints. I must remember to do something with them.

    Now I'm getting into the "Back To Mine" compilations, I have the first 28... but it looks like they've only released 1 more... so I guess I'll have to do something about that.
