Lexies Chain: The Sixty-Seventh Chain

Hello pals! Welcome to Week 67 of #lexieschain. Dis week was down to ma dad to choose on ma behalf. Last week we ad The KLF and 3am Eternal. So let's av a look at dem now.

Sleep to Dream by Fiona Apple. Why? During the Brit Awards 1992 The KLF criticised the music business with firing machine gun blanks into the audience. 5 years later while accepting MTV Video Music Award for "Best New Artist" for her song Sleep to Dream, Fiona Apple said: 'This world is bullshit, and you shouldn't model your life on what we think is cool, and what we're wearing and what we're saying'.

When I was watching the KLF video, I spied something like Stonehedge about to be bulldozed. I immediately thought of "Stonehedge" recorded by Spinal Tap and featuring commentary bu Nigel Tufnel. Previous names of KLF were The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu/The KLF/The Timelords, which fits with the theme of timeless and ancient legends. As a young male cat, I think Spinal Tap humor is like really funny. MaggieTKat says I am just a juvenile delinquent.

Last week winning linky was 3 a.m. Eternal. This track has a time in the title so I choose “Time” by David Bowie as my linky.

me not know nufin’ bout dis KLF, but 3am eternal title reminded me ob Wendesday Morning 3 AM song from album ob da same name by Simon & Garfunkel so me suggest me faborite song from dat album “Sparrow”. Sparrow from Wendesday Morning 3 AM Album by Simon & Garfunkel.

Ha, KLF! Love it! In homage to their wackiness I hav decided to do a wacky linky. Well the KLF had a thing for the lost continent of Mu (naturally) and, indeed, were also known as The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu and were bound for Mu Mu Land! Mu Mu always makes me think of Homer Simpson wearing a Muumuu when he intentionally becomes clinically obese to avoid work in the Simpsons episode "King sized Homer". Homer's favourite band was Grand Funk Railroad and their biggest hit was a cover of "The Locomotion". The railroad/locomotive theme also links to another of KLF's biggest hits which was "Last Train To Trancentral". So my choice this week is The Locomotion by Grand Funk Railroad :-)

Well done Lexie on last week's win giving us 3am Eternal. The KLF were Bill Drummond & Jimmy Cauty. Cauty with Alex Paterson was part of The Orb in the the late eighties to 1990. At the time The Orb were renowned for their ambient chill out tracks. Tunes which you would often want to listen to at 3am after a hard night's raving. My favourite is the linky this week Little Fluffy Clouds. What were the skies like when you were young?

Dat wus a supa choicy of songy wong by da Lexie last week ragardless of all dat #lexiegate poop! So wot dus a paw go wid dis week? It dus be The Shamen's Ebeneezer Goode. Why? Well is a contraveshul song in da moosic world cus da songy is supposed to be about drugs wot ain't good fur you but den wot da hecky fire! Dey wus chosen cause dey wus influenced by KLF House moosic style and dey wus being different like wot da KLF wus in der day too. 

we did see dat you chose KLF as your song last week and we kno the man from KLF was famuss for burnin £1 million. That make us fink of film by Clint Eastwood called Million Dollar Baby......Mr Eastwood also did film called Bird bout life of Charlie Parker who be musician and of corse there was famuss film called Birdie by Alan Parker (one of our favrits) and Peter Gabriel do mosssics for that film so our chain this week be Sledgehammer by Pater Gabriel
