Absolutely loved these Eno pods. Such a wise, interesting geezer. Sounds like a thoroughly nice chap, too.

Lovely work, Adam! Most fascinating thing for me as a chap with a shambly type of brain is how Eno can nip down all sorts of conversational side streets and alleyways but find his way back to the main thoroughfare of his thesis. None of this, "Um, how did we get here? What were we talking about?" Says a lot, I think, about his mind operation in general. You were good too.

ooh, so now I'm wondering whether the 'like & subscribe' ditty Adam did for his podcasts is influenced by the Gavin Bryars thing? - vocals gradually fade leaving just the music, but you keep hearing Adam singing anyway?!

I always remember that Channel 4 used the opening bars from 'Regiment' (I think) as the theme for American Football back in the 1980s.
Good couple of ramble-chats. Thanks.

Hi Adam,
Could you post up the link to the youtube film you mentioned where Brian Eno turns the tables of the guy who is intrusively filming him? CAn't wait to hear podcast 2 this evening!
With many thanks,
Alasdair Dickson,

A note about Comments

Hello Podcats and Blog friends,

I wanted to let you know that comments have been disabled on the blog and the app for the time being. This is not because of anyone posting anything abusive or anything like that, but just because I seldom get round to moderating the stuff that comes in as promptly as I should, and rather than irritate people who don’t understand why their comment hasn’t been posted, I think it’s easier if I just switch them off. Sorry about that, but time is scarce and I’m disappointed to discover I can’t do everything! And if you’re one of the people who submitted a comment and it hasn’t been posted - sincere apologies.

Best wishes
