Eno: Some Suggestions (in Plain English)

2018 marks the 70th birthday of Brian Eno. It occurred to me that while he is often spoken about, written about and admired, there wasn’t really a generic overview of best bits; solo and collaborative, which as you may imagine is a¬†formidable¬†body of work, so here’s my take on things both sonic and visual. *disclaimer […]
