KLF - It's Grim Up North (Presto Edit)

A sacrilegious reworking of the classic from 1991. It's been sitting on my hard drive for a few months so I decided to just finish it off (well, a version of it anyway; I never actually finish things) and see what others thought. Made it so it's easily mixable (Jerusalem has been removed completely, and the track starts with the thunderous kick) along with some other little tweaks, additions and stuff taken from both Parts 1 and 2.

    I strangely don't recall this track and I was a massive KLF fan back in the day. Their manefesto on music is excellent.


LOL A massive fan ? Its like being a massive Nirvana fan but saying to have never heard of Smells like team spirit.

Presto, not meaning to piss on your parade but you could have saved yourself a lot of time here by getting a copy of the original club mix which is basically what you've replicated. Still you got one thing right, it is sacrilege.

Nice to hear Nantwich get a mention.

There was only 350 released but its the version you'll hear on all the old sets back then from any decent DJ. At 300+ $ i'm glad to say mine is safely stored away.

I did say I wanted to incorporate elements from that mix too.


And there's no parade pissing here. I made this as a pet project and just put it out there.

Re: KLF - It's Grim Up North (Presto Edit)

You said parts one and two. The club mix isnt either. Just saying.

Nice work Presto. I've fond memories of listening to the original on one of those Now tapes I got for Christmas. Not sure which number.

Great days. Might have been the year I got the Light Fantastic on the Commodre 64. Such great days.
