From The KLF's wikipedia entry:
On 12 February 1992, The KLF and crust punk group Extreme Noise Terror performed a live version of "3 a.m. Eternal" at the BRIT Awards, the British Phonographic Industry's annual awards show; a "violently antagonistic performance" in front of "a stunned music-business audience". Drummond and Cauty had planned to throw buckets of sheep's blood over the audience, but were prevented from doing so due to opposition from BBC lawyers and "hardcore vegans" Extreme Noise Terror. The performance (The KLF - 3 a.m. Eternal (Live at the Brits) was instead garnished by a limping, kilted, cigar-chomping Drummond firing blanks from an automatic weapon over the heads of the crowd. As the band left the stage, The KLF's promoter and narrator Scott Piering announced over the PA system that "The KLF have now left the music business". Later in the evening the band dumped a dead sheep with the message "I died for ewe—bon appetit" tied around its waist at the entrance to one of the post-ceremony parties.
SOOOO weird. The Social Democratic Party of Austria (SPÖ) has been putting on what's Europe's largest free music festival, Donauinselfest (literally, festival on the Danube Island) since 1984. Cool. What's funny to see is that it's mega-corporatized, with sponsors all over the place. Now I understand that you don't organize a free festival without some massive injection of cash from somewhere, and even publicly supported festivals in Canada have sponsors all over the place, but it's amusing that this is specifically coming from a social-democratic party.
