In 1988, Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty (aka The Timelords) published a book; The Manual (How To Have A Number One The Easy Way). Their case study, “Doctorin’ The Tardis”, which was fabulous, was indeed a number one record.
But it wasn’t all good news. Austrian band, Edelweiss, read the book, stole ABBA's "S.O.S.", and sold five million copies of their own case study, "Bring Me Edelweiss". Which was shit.
In 2018, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the book’s publication, I decided to not be an artist.
