You know how everyone you know somehow knows Kevin Bacon?
Brian Eno is kind of the musical equivalence of that. I’m pretty sure that everything music related, since the 70′s, can somehow be linked back to Brian Eno’s magical powers of inspiration/ production.
Early Brian Eno music has been saturating my apartment, subway rides, and time spent staring at walls, all week. Its been great! I’m enjoying it so much that I would like for you to consider dedicating some of November to appreciating Brian Eno, much like I have.
I would make a Brian Eno mix of my favorite songs, but I doneno where I would start! I guess I would pretty much just be copying the set list from his BBC Sessions.
- Paw Paw Negro Blowtorch
- The Fat Lady of Limbourg
- Baby’s on Fire
- I’ll Come Running (To Tie Your Shoes)
- Third Uncle
- Seven Deadly Finns
Heres some Brian Eno related things that I suggest to make your average November into more of an Eno-vember:
- Rent Velvet Goldmine and feel better about your life
- Pretend you’re a martian on a different planet while listing to his “Before And After Science” album. (I’m pretty sure that’s what that album was made for)
- Get memorized by his outfits during his Roxy Music days
- Talk about David Byrne like you guys are best friends
- Check out Built to Spill covering Third Uncle
