found these:
https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=57287
https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=106854

I think "sind_klf.mod" is the 'most-genuine' as the module name is the closest to what was originally released by the klf in 1993 (but I think both are identical?)
However, perhaps renaming the 'winning' file to
"Maelcum_-_Sindication_TM.mod"
is more in keeping with modarchive's requested file-naming format?

Merged. For legacy modules, I generally prefer to keep the better-known legacy name as well.

PS: I saw that you recently uploaded a lot of old KLF stuff. I hope you're aware that AMF is just DMP's intermediate song format, i.e. not a tracker-specific format. If possible, it would be nice to have the original files (MOD/669/whatever) instead of AMF files, but I know this is not always possible.

Thanks Saga Musix.

Re. AMF:
As far as I can tell the amf songs were originally released as amf?
These have been extracted from zips hosted at
ftp://ftp.scene.org/pub/music/groups/kosmic/1993/
and extracted amfs appear to have the correct release date in their file properties.
Additionally, the FILE_ID.DIZ states .amf as the release format; i.e.
Quote
~snip  ASCII art~
       PRODUCTIONS PRESENT
                *
       BEAT iT UP  (.AMF)
  MOMO - African Style   
  CREATED by Sinbad [KLF]               
     Copyright (C) 1993
apparently this particular song was created "using good old Modedit."
So I assume the artist will be (just about?) the only person who may have the original format - if they still have the files burnt somewhere on something still readable after 24 years...   ;)
(sorry if this is off-topic)

Here are some more duplicates:
https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=169058 (it)
https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=58693 (mtm)
https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=69090 (s3m)
they all sound the same quality to me.
(if my info is right) the original release-format from Kosmic was mtm though.

Yeah, that's why I said that I'm aware it's not always possible. But more often than not, e.g. when already-released songs get reused in demos or diskmags, the original file can be found as well.

Given the release date, that seems like the most plausible format indeed.
