? (People's Pyramid)

By - (15 November, 1997, Melody Maker)

2K - or K2 Plant Hire Ltd, as they how prefer to be known - have revealed details of their alternative to the Millennium Dome.

Following the resounding "yes" vote in their telephone poll asking the public whether or not they should f*** the millennium, Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty have asked supporters to donate discarded bricks for the construction of a 150ft tall pyramid, to be knwon as the Great Northern Pyramid of the People. The duo have estimated that the project would require 87 million bricks - roughly one and a half for each person in the country. They intend to collect the bricks and complete the project within five years.

A statement issued via K2 Plant Hire Ltd's Internet site pointedly contrasts the intended virtues of their People's Pyramid with the drawbacks of the officially sponsored Millennium Dome.

It promises: "The construction of the People's Pyramid will cost the taxpayer nothing. The site is yet to be announced. It will be open to the public free of charge, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. You will be able to do what you want with it. Climb it, paint it, polish it, eat your sandwiches on it or chip it away. It will stand for as long there is any of it left. It will promote nothing. Be sponsored by nobody. And owned by everybody."

Meanwhile, Drummond and Cauty will be reading extracts from a new book, "Watch The K Foundation Burn A Million Quid", at the Atlantis Art Space, 146 Brick Lane, London E1 on November 27. The book contains stills from the film of the notorious dosh-destroying episode in which the duo allegedly set fire to their fortune on the Isle of Jura on August 23, 1994. The film will be screened as Drummond and Cauty read from the book. Admission is UKP 5.
