Vibes from the Tribes of the Jams

This is one of my favorite songs.
Let us celebrate the implosion of the hermeneutic dimension (demention? )
as we enjoy the KLF [featuring Tammy Wynette]
LIVE from the Lost Continent!

Cerebral overload has its own peculiar poetry too, you know….

 Justified and Ancient              K.L.F.  (1991)

All bound for Mu Mu Land / All bound for Mu Mu Land

(Hey – Hey, hey) …all bound for Mu Mu Land
(Hey, hey)  …all bound for Mu Mu Land

They’re justified, and they’re ancient
and they like to roam the land  (just roll it from the top)
They’re justified, and they’re ancient / I hope you understand
(To the bridge, to the bridge, to the bridge now)

They called me up in Tennessee,
they said: “Tammy, stand by The Jams”

But if you don’t like what they’re going to do
You better not stop them ’cause they’re coming through
(Bring the beat back)

(Hey, hey) All bound for Mu Mu Land
(Hey, hey) All bound for Mu Mu Land
(Ancients of Mu Mu)
Mu Mu Land / Mu Mu Land
All bound for Mu Mu Land…

They’re justified / and they’re ancient
And they drive an ice cream van
(Just roll it from the top)

They’re justified / and they’re ancient
With still no master plan
(To the bridge, to the bridge, to the bridge now)

The last train left an hour ago
They were singing, “All aboard”
All bound for Mu Mu Land
Till someone started screaming:
“Turn up the strobe” (Bring the beat back)

(Hey, hey) All bound for Mu Mu Land
(Hey, heyAll bound for Mu Mu Land
(Ancients of Mu Mu)

Justified and ancient / ancient and a-justified
Rocking to the rhythm in their ice cream van
With the plan and the key to / enter into Mu Mu
Vibes from the tribes of the Jams

I know where the beat is at / ’cause I know what time it is
3 is on the dial / make mine a “99”

New style, meanwhile, lost on a mission while
Fishing in the rivers of life
Fishing in the rivers of life (hey)
Fishing in the rivers of life (hey)
Fishing in the rivers / fishing in the rivers
f
ishing in the rivers of life (hey)

(Tooty fruity – I said tooty fruity)
(Tooty fruity… bring the beat back)
(Hey, hey)
All bound for Mu Mu Land
(Ancients of Mu Mu)
(Hey, hey)
All bound for Mu Mu Land
(Ancients of Mu Mu)

MU: Pacific counterpart to Atlantis / mu-mu dresses /cultural vestiges of  a lost race/ bovine offspring of the Nephilim / global hubris provoked oceanic-volcanic vengeance / Marshall McLuhan meets Guy Debord at a rave / last transmission from a sinking landmass / syncretic pre-apocalyptic affirmation /  Country-Western hits Global-Afro-Oriental head-on / Tammy Wynette  in a post-mortem preview from beyond the grave / aquatic-nomadic Dionysian celebration the astral event of events in the temple of the eternal present / blonde Lemurian priestess of a doomed island looks skyward / ancient astronauts land in the memory of a line of flight / tribal beats call to the future from the fallen pillars of judgment /  justified before the Ancient of Days / vibes from the tribes of the JAM[E]S / to the 12 tribes scattered throughout the world, greetings / the priests ARE the bovine cult sacrifice! / fishing as evangelistic metaphor / TRUTH = lost on a mission / the nomadic dimension transcends itself in hermeneutic collapse / striated space becomes  smooth space beneath the waves without a trace / read the flashed subliminal messages / translate the Chinese / they escaped in a submarine to bring us the hidden wisdom 7 thousand years later / help – no longer making sense but I have to hear the song ONE MORE TIME !!!!

Thank you Semiotext(e).  Thank you, K.L.F.       Over & out.
