Quotes:

Avant-garde music is sort of research music. You're glad someone's done it but you don't necessarily want to listen to it.

I see TV as a picture medium rather than a narrative medium.

I'm struck by the insidious, computer-driven tendency to take things out of the domain of muscular activity and put them into the domain of mental activity.

I want the music to be as much as possible a continuous condition of the environment…in the same way as a painting is.
- Brian Eno - talking about his definition of ambient music. From a BBC interview broadcast in January 1986

Story about this misheard lyric by: princejellyfish

The fade-out on this song (the live version anyway) contains the line 'Shop Steward', referring to the manager of a store. My old roomie thought that 'Stewart' was the name of some unknown sound engineer, who wouldn't stop talking in someone's ear-piece when they recorded this (with Phil Manzanera). I have my doubts, but this line does not exist on any lyrics page that I could find.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Backwater"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Ooo, what to do?
Not a sausage to do.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Am I missing something, just exactly how do you 'do' a sausage? Perhaps Eno learned this interesting technique from one of the other 'Brian's' in his youth (maybe even Brian Ferry)?

Scary Song Lyrics:

"Baby's on fire"
The Lyrics:
"Baby's on fire, better throw her in the water.(br) Look at her laughing, like a heffer to the slaughter.
Why:
"This was a shocking lyric to spring on us, when we were members of the zig-zag club. Less than five years later, the punks sang about similar themes with a far heavier vibe.
