The KLF’s story of how they blagged their way to a No 1 in 1988. A lot of the specific advice is now outdated, but it’s still compelling as to how easy it was to manipulate the charts. The sickening suspicion remains that the era of chart manipulation, of multiple formats and airplay and hype generating sales, was ushered in by music business insiders reading this, the old story of outsider methods ultimately being adopted by the mainstream If there’s one thing that you can still take from it though, it’s the hustler attitude.

This infamous book is now available online in its entirety at http://www.kirps.com/web/main/resources/music/themanual It's written in a humorous, but very matter-of-fact, way. Sample: "The recording studio is the place where you will record your Number One hit single."

Begehe nicht den Fehler, Clubbing zur Gewohnheit werden zu lassen. Es ist ein Lebensstil, in den man schnell verfallen kann. Man fängt an zu glauben, dass man etwas verpasst, wenn man nicht ständig durch die Clubs zieht. Das einzige, was man wirklich verpasst, ist sich selbst. Die Vernunft bleibt vor der Tür.
