Q (UK) - - Girl Ray -

As vet­er­ans of punk, Jimmy Cauty and Bill Drum­mond swiftly grasped acid house’s po­ten­tial for cre­at­ing cash from chaos. Start­ing with The Timelords’ Doc­tor Who-meets-the-Glit­ter Band ou­trage Doc­torin’ The Tardis in June 1988, they went on to per­fect their own brand of “sta­dium house” be­fore Cauty teamed up with “Dr” Alex Pater­son to form The Orb. The chaos con­tin­ued even af­ter the duo deleted their back cat­a­logue in 1992 while the cash, in­fa­mously, went up in smoke.

Shoot­ing to the top of the charts: The KLF’s Bill Drum­mond at the 1992 Brit Awards.
