2002 – present (16 years)
There is more than one artist with this name:
1.) Blacksmoke are "an occasional art collective and musical group dedicated to the propagation of audio visual noise". The group consist of The KLF co-founder Jimmy Cauty and James Fogarty, a 24 year old heavy metal musician. Keir Jens-Smith, the ex-Black Dog/808 State manager, is described as their "project manager". K Foundation collaborator Gimpo, contrary to reports, has never provided any vocals but was the inspiration for the track "Gimpo Gimpo". Cauty left the organisation in 2005 to work on other projects.
Cauty stated in a music press interview that the project is first and foremost an outlet for his anger concerning the September 11th terrorist attacks. Among the work so far produced by the Blacksmoke Organisation are limited edition prints of stamps known as The Stamps Of Mass Destruction, the Post Terrorist Modernist EP and the Post-Terrorism Xmas Shop. The anger over 9/11 is immediately apparent in the samples and vocals of many of the tracks as well as the graphics.
2.) Blacksmoke are a rock 'n' roll band from Auckland, New Zealand, featuring members of Deja Voodoo.
