THE PAW-PAW NEGRO BLOWTORCH

...and speaking of "...Warm Jets", here's a (v. Short) clip of Brian during the recording session for "The Paw Paw Negro Blowtorch", which I'm sure you've all seen before, but humour me:

all that minimal wah wah is making his hair fallout ...

personally since he or some such ambient-oik sold his stuff to the wine section of Tesco I cannot stomach the tosh ..

speaking of which - anyone heard Another girl Another Planet now on repeat in the big Tesco Hyperplanet - shame - I always adored that song .. time to sell the 12 inch on ebay me suspects..

"...sold his stuff to the wine section of Tesco..." LOL!

He wrote the start-up 'music' for Windows95, didn't he? Wonder what the royalty payments were like on that?

I'll buy yr copy of "AG, AP"!

Did you Hear 'Another Day on Earth'? I really like it. First thing I bought of his for ages.

Just listebed to me AGAP 12 incher - and man - it kicks so much I will suffer holding onto it until the repeat plays in Tes-Co does me bleedin-ead-in ..

Not heard Another Day - but is it uncool to find the big E ever-so-slightly dull? Personally I never really dug much of his stuff apart from the Warm-Jets .. but what am I to know being an aging glam-rocker with far too much speed in me veins to ever nod off to ambient drones !!

No, not heard "Another Day..."

I used to really love his stuff, but like The Farmer I struggle to find much of his stuff that really engages me beyond his early pre-Ambient records...there's been a lot of huff n puff about the reissue of "My Life in the Bush of Ghosts" recently....when Circle Brophy was back recently we were talking about it and I think we decided that it wasn't that great an album; I'm not sure that it has held up as well as people think it has...(I bought it when it came out, but I think I had some doubts about it even back then)...I think we decided that Eno wore increasingly thin as the 70s went on and that "Before and After Science" was the last semi half-decent LP he made...there seemed to be a cut-off point around 1975 where he went from being 100% uber-cool to losing whenever it was that made him special; I have a theory that it was prob. related to hair-loss...in retrospect, working w/ Bowie was a mistake, as he started taking himself far, far too seriously after that...now and again, I hear the odd thing by him that's okay, and, like Bowie, I keep hoping that he has one last decent LP in him, but to be truthful working with U2 was something I've never forgiven him for, regardless of how rich it made him...also, for a so-called cutting-edge theorist he is sooo remarkably clueless about a lot of stuff going on (though that may be an advantage, in terms of distraction, etc, etc)....

Still, "Warm Jets", "Tiger Mountain" "Seven deadly Finns", etc are colossal achievements in anyone's books...wish I'd bought that Eno & The Winkies vinyl boot that someone offered me back in 76...
