A remarkably candid account of Brian Eno's life in 1995. He manages to combine, though probably not for the readers benefit, humour with the serious. It is a detailed review of how the other half live but it also an insight into an overactive mind. 'Nothing much happened today,- Bowie, Lou Reed and Lenny Henry called',-like they do. The book is a great source of ideas, when Eno has an idea he jots it down, regardless of time of day (or night). His lists are legendary. Eno can simultaneously recount his meetings with Tony Blair and then his visit to Auntie Freda for her 90th birthday. Berating foreign policies in Bosnia, then worrying about the overuse of oyster sauce in his recipes.Can be opened at any page to discover the thoughts and theories of the most influential musician and producer of the past 30 years. A wonderful coffee table, nay toilet, book.
A very worthwhile and enjoyable read, particularly for those of us who were unaware of who Brian Eno was - it is a book which I regularly dip into and will continue to do so.
is music is sometimes OK aswell. There you go.
