The KLF - Come Down Dawn


Recommended Posts


It's not new. It's an alternate take. Seasoned listeners will notice quite a few new details and the odd omission. They must have remastered it too because it sounds a lot nicer sonically than the original. Cleaner and more detailed.

You can stream it most places but there are also FLAC copies floating around now, presumably lifted from Tidal or QOBUZ.

An incredible album that somehow doesn't seem to age compared to some IDM.

Last month they also released 'Sonic State Logic ' - a collection of singles and other oddities.


Apparently there are more back catalogue gems to come in the months to come.

Excuse my ignorance - is this an ambient album a la Chill Out?

It's basically a remastered (and quite bit) remixed edition of Chill Out.

This is the original version before samples were added, not an “edit”. It also has additional parts not on the “Chill Out” version and is mixed a bit differently. 

But I really miss the BBC Radio 'Rock Radio' voice of Tommy Vance "Rock Radio...Into the Nineties...And Beyond."

And the Van Halen sample.

Listened to this, it just feels really weird when I know the old version by heart. I guess it's good, but I don't like it.

      anyone else really has a passion for it as well?
      this has got to be one of my favorite ambient records ever.
      while listening to it today i found that The Lights of Baton Rouge Pass By has Pacific State playing really smoothly in the background. nice detail, really goes well with the song.
      Wichita Lineman Was A Song I Once Heard is probably my favorite. The pads and synths are beyond what is possible to be explained.
      wish i could experience listening to it in a setting like the one shown in the cover...

      It's been 23 years!

      .... or is it just someone joking around?

      A bit more about Doctor Who than the book, but it's interesting to see the connections the pioneering duo had to the series.

      What's the story with this group? After seeing the white room pop up on various must-have-in-eletronic lists I finally decided to check it out. It's like fresh fettucini with a sprinkle of parmesan. Gets me pumped for a battle with jon claude van damme. I heard they disbanded after this album and an insane performance involving sheeps blood. Anything obscure worth checking out?
