The Cult Of Nick: KLF, Chaos, Magic, Music, Money

From The Cult Of Nick podcast:

In 1994 Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty took a million pounds to a deserted boathouse on the island of Jura and burnt it. The writer JMR Higgs looked at this event from a magickal perspective and came up with some interesting results. The story involves the world’s first joke religion, the JFK assasination, Robert Anton Wilson, Alan Moore and a bunch of ideas collectively known as “Chaos Magick”.

The events and book are described by the author on his personal website here:

Come Join My Cult..

A week ago I started doing a podcast that contains interviews from the archives of my radio career. This week’s is an hour chatting to David Icke, the previous week was with David Aaronovitch, on the subject of his book “Voodoo Histories: The Role of Conspiracy Theory in Shaping Modern History”. The interviews are all being put out for the first time without any major edits. When broadcast, mainly around 2007-2009, they all needed cuts to fit into their allotted timeslots.

The Icke interview this week is interesting, it catches him five years ago, before his current career peak just on the verge of almost mainstream “success”. It tells his story, from his perspective: http://thecultofnick.libsyn.com/024-the-david-icke-interview

The previous week features a good ol’ debunking session with a journalist from The Times: http://thecultofnick.libsyn.com/023-first-full-half-hour-version-of-the-cult-of-nick
