Product description

Review

The 450-page biography (written with the help of the famous piss-taster himself) fairly zips along (OBSERVER MUSIC MONTHLY)

This exeptionally well-written biography duly celebrated [Eno's] great achievements with Roxy, Bowie, Talking Heads and his own solo work in compelling detail. (UNCUT)

[An] honourable, authorised attempt to do justice to a mind-bogglingly restless and prolific subject. (SUNDAY TIMES)

David Sheppard's authorised biography dispels some of the myths surrounding Brian Eno and provides a compelling case for his importance as artist and thinker. (WATERSTONES BOOKS QUARTERLY)

An accomplished and sprawling biography reflects Eno's scattershot approach to life - all over the place but fascinating just the same. (BIG ISSUE (Scotland))

Music Book of the Fortnight 'Few enigmas are as hard to unravel as Brian Peter George St John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno, but the Q contributor has done a bang-up job with this 450-page tome' (HOT PRESS (Ireland))

David Sheppard's meticulously researched biography...[with] the kind of footnote that make this doorstopper such an engaging read (INDEPENDENT)

On Some Faraway Beach provides an extensive introduction to a lifetime of constructive, and very English, pottering. (SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

Sheppard has corralled the many strands of Eno's hectic creative life into a coherent and highly readable account. On Some Faraway Beach will take some beating as a chronicle of one of popular music's few truly original practitioners. (TOTAL MUSIC MAGAZINE)

A vivid, well-observed and absorbing biography replete with relevant context and cultural references (THE BEAT)

How do you pin down enigma like Brian Eno? Music journalist David Sheppard makes a valiant stab at it in this lively biography (YORKSHIRE EVENING POST)

Book Description

Authorised biography of influential musician/producer/cultural commentator Brian Eno - the 'Father of Ambient Music'.
