In for the K and L.

Two more contributions from me good self for the Art of Noise encylopaedia.

At K, I submitted a piece on Killing Joke, which sits alongside the following: Keith;
Kentish Town Forum;
Kevin Keegan;
Kim Gordon;
Nat ‘King’ Cole;
Kings of Leon;
The Kinks;
& Kraftwerk.

For L, there's locomotives from me, some guff about the prominence of the train in song. That's joined by great gear on:
Lambchop – ‘Up With People’;
Lionel Richie;
‘Local Hero’ – Dire Strait;
London Calling – The Clash;
Lost Sides – Doves;
'Love To Hate You’ – Erasure;
and ‘Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds’ – The Beatles
