Jimmy Cauty is back - for one day only...

KLF founding member JIMMY CAUTY has released a download as THE BLACKSMOKE ORGANISATION in memory of the 9/11 WORLD TRADE CENTER attacks two years ago.

'Silent Night' will only be available online for today (September 11) after which it will deleted forever. The track is available for download at www.blacksmoke.org/911.htm

"I recorded the track a while ago and a few days ago I realised it was going to be the 9/11 anniversary. We wanted to respond to what was going on," he told Australian website
undercover.com.au. "Blacksmoke is an occasional art collective and musical group."

He added: "We have just done an EP called 'Fuck The Fucking Fuckers'. It is a concept EP, the concept being fuck America basically and fuck weapons of mass destruction."

Cauty explained: "It is like a protest record. It is kind of record that you would want to put on if you are going to go out on a riot. We do feel quite angry about what has been going on with the war."

Artwork for the download, which features postage-stamp styled images of the Queen wearing a military gas mark appeared on the front cover of The Times last June.

Despite rumours, former KLF collaborator and political activist Bill Drummond was not involved with 'Silent Night'. Cauty also revealed that there are no plans in the near future to reform the band who famously burnt £1 million.

"I do work with Bill on other projects but we are not going to reform or anything like that, he said. "Maybe at the end of the world we might do a gig. There are no plans at the moment. I left the whole music thing."

He added, "I haven't done anything for ten years. It was only the 9/11 thing when I started to get some ideas."
