Once in A Lifetime in the Bush of Ghosts

David Byrne and Brian Eno are touring together, and will be at the nearby Mountain Winery in October.

I once was so enthralled with Brian Eno that I called myself (though with rather questionable taste) an Enoist.

I adored the Talking Heads, and trailed a bit after the members once they parted ways, to enjoy the Tom-Tom Club, and the brilliant Byrne/Eno collaboration My Life in the Bush of Ghosts.

I have the pleasure now of rediscovering these loves, once lost and forgotten with Everything That Happens Will Happen Today.

  4. Keith Jarrett … perhaps I see some feet poking out from the propped-up top of a baby grand?

    My sister, who teaches high schooler’s English literature, would say he is considered an ‘Emo’, not to be confused with an ‘Eno’ or even an ‘Enoist’.
