The KLF vs. Extreme Noise Terror

The KLF vs. Extreme Noise TerrorPowered by Audioscrobbler™The Black Room was a never-released LP by The KLF/The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu, originally intended to be a complement to their earlier LP The White Room.

The Black Room was scheduled for release by KLF Communications for the end of 1991, which was put back to March 1992. At some point, grindcore band Extreme Noise Terror were employed, and the two bands were still recording in February 1992 when The KLF scrapped the sessions. "What actually happened," said ENT singer Dean "was that Bill heard us on [John] Peel when he was in the bath and got in touch. They had wanted to do rock versions of their songs with Motörhead but something fell through, so he rang us... The message said it's Bill from The KLF, but I thought they said 'the ALF' so I didn't take much notice... Later, we got anther message saying it was definitely Bill from The KLF and I said 'f--- off! What does he want with us?' But it all got explained eventually." Asked how they have found working with "the pop genius of the age" the band agreed on a party line: "Just say that he's mad, barking bleedin' mad..."

Mark Stent, the engineer/producer for these sessions, thought the music was pure genius. "The most awesome track for me was one called "The Black Room and Terminator 10" which was like a very slow tempo thrash. It was mad. It was brilliant, absolutely brilliant, and it would have shown a lot of people up because it was as ballsy as hell. Guitars screaming all over the place, Bill doing his vocals and Dean (of ENT) doing his. There was such a raw power to it. It was so different from anything anyone else had ever heard. This was really heavy."

One track was released from this collaboration, a metal version of "3 a.m. Eternal". The two bands also performed together at the 1992 BRIT Awards ceremony, a performance which NME listed at number 4 in their "top 100 rock moments".
