The collected films of The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu, The KLF and The Timelords (1988-1992).


23 Seconds to Eternity will take viewers on a film journey through the collected music videos and short features produced and directed by Bill Butt in collaboration with Jimmy Cauty and Bill Drummond in their various guises as The JAMs, The KLF and The Timelords, one of the most successful, subversively creative and enigmatic electronic bands of the early 90s.


Includes the film The White Room (1989), an ‘ambient road movie’ following American police car, Ford Timelord and Jimmy Cauty (Rockman Rock) and Bill Drummond (King Boy D) on a journey cross-country in search of the ‘White Room’. Remastered and regraded from the only existing film print, The White Room features a new soundtrack specially recorded for this release.


Also features a newly restored version of The Rites of Mu (1991), a 29 minute feature narrated by Martin Sheen, documenting a Summer Solstice event organised by The KLF on the Scottish island of Jura in 1991, plus the previously unreleased short, Krash (1992), edited in 2022, a record of the final and violent destruction of Ford Timelord. The soundtrack to Krash is a track from The Black Room, the unreleased album by the Justified Ancients of Mu Mu.
