Brian Eno

Here's a great clip of Brian Eno, seeming uncomfortable in the spotlight, but looking every inch the latter-day glam-rocker while simultaneously sounding every inch the proto-punk. The tune is his 1974 single 'Seven Deadly Finns', which I bought on release, but subsequently lent to a friend and, of course, never saw again - d'oh!

Do please feel free to join in towards the end of the song, with, what Julian Cope once described as, Eno's 'psychedelic yodeling.'

(A tip of the titfer to the good folks over at Tune Doctor, for posting my true story of Ramones rage! Read all about it here.)

Wow! You weren't kidding about the yodelling, were you? Great stuff.

I see him down here by the coast every now and again. He looks as well and contented as you could imagine, bless 'im.

Fran Ifield on it!

Nice. It's difficult to equate the two Enos - here a glam rock accident in a jumble sale and the well known egg-head producer of today.

KK. I saw him stepping out of an upmarket toy shop in Norwich a few years ago. I've often wondered what he was doing in my neck of the woods. perhaps he was trying to launch a Junior version of Oblique Strategies.

OPC. Frank Ifield on gas - brilliant!

SB. Glam rock accident in a jumble sale - another gem!
