Remember the Justified Ancients of Mu Mu?
? Intellectual property hacker and musical impresario Jimmy Cauty
is up to his old tricks
again; this time his chosen targets are UK stamps
bearing the likeness of the Queen
. His "Stamps of Mass Destruction" are causing quite the stir, with the Royal Mail threatening to sue the Artrepublic Gallery in Brighton
for displaying the naughty works.
From Reuters UK: "Cauty and fellow KLF member Bill Drummond
are best known for burning one million pounds of their own money
in a ceremony on a remote Scottish island in 1994. They have never explained why they did it."
Bloody fools. Oh well...a burning pile of pound notes makes for better press than dumping a ton of Euro coins down the loo.
