The Birmingham Mail gets to know Bill Drummond

Oh, dear. The Birmingham Mail struggles to capture Bill Drummond:

A chart-topping pop star turned artist who famously burned a million pounds is launching a world tour by creating a sculpture from 400 daffodils – under Spaghetti Junction.

Madcap Bill Drummond, once half of eccentric dance duo The KLF, has announced he will arrive in Birmingham on March 13 along the Grand Union Canal on a raft made from his bed, before building the floral display.
"Madcap"? "Eccentric"? I suppose we should be thankful they didn't go with "bonkers" or "crazy".

Although I'm pretty certain the KLF ice cream van had a sign "you don't have to be mad to collaborate with Extreme Noise Terror at the Brits, but it helps". Pretty certain that was there.

"Madcap" is like "funnyman" and "quizzed" (or indeed any combination of "tot", "mauled" and "devil dog") - one of those words that only exists in tabloid newspapers, never in normal conversation.
