In 17, Drummond analyses the past, present, and possible future of music and the ways in which we hear and relate to it. He references his own contributions to the canon of popular music, and he provides fascinating insider portraits of the industry and its protagonists. But above all, he questions our ideas of music and our attitude to sound, introducing us throughout this provocative and superbly written book to his current work, The17.

"Rambling and ultimately a bit dull"
I loved The KLF, especially the mystery that they allowed to surround themselves. Here Drummond specifically states that 17 won't contain any stories from that time but he uses the same grandiose language to describe his mission to produce his new musical project '17' but now it feels empty. Recorded cheaply (you can hear traffic and doors closing in the background) this is of little interest.
