Stand By Your Van: Tammy Meets the KLF

Terry Staunton, New Musical Express, 23 November 1992

Welcome to Mu Mu Land, where hooded figures drive ice-cream vans and nothing is quite like it is in Tennessee. Which is a welcome change for TAMMY WYNETTE, who’s forsaken Nashville to bond with THE KLF on their Christmas monster-to-be ‘Justified And Ancient (Stand By The JAMs)’, a tribute to the song she’s been singin’ for 23 years. TERRY STAUNTON shares a 99 with the Queen Empress of Country Music.
