Bush Of Ghosts double whammy!

by Chris Randall
 



One of the most important electronic albums, and one that has heavily informed most styles of electronic music, got a big pat on the ass today. My Life in the Bush Of Ghosts by Brian Eno and David Byrne, has been re-released on CD with (finally) proper mastering and seven (!) bonus tracks. In addition, there is a Bush Of Ghosts webpage that has remix packs and lots of info about the album.


This was a rather inspirational album for me when I first started recording (if you listen closely to my first two albums, you'll find several samples from it), and I think you'd be hard pressed to find an electronic artist from any genre that isn't intimately familiar with this record. Even if you're a fan of neither Byrne nor Eno, you'd be well served to pick this bitch up.

Dunno 'til I get it, but I imagine it was done at either Green St. or Sterling; both are normal Byrne finishing joints.

so EVENTUALLY they are going to release the source material
of two tracks of the album for all of us influencees to mess with
but WHICH two tracks?

My vote would be
1. The Carrier
2. Come With Us

yours?

and wow, after having listened to the missing 'Quaran' track via MP3
i just had a listen to the vinyl & H+LY F++KNG SH+T!
the vinyl soudns fantastic - just as vital as i remember
in comparison the mp3s sound like porridge :(

do yourself a favour big ears, go buy the vinyl!

& so is there a vinyl re-release too?

Shhh. Don't say that too loud. mp3's are supposed to be the greatest thing ever. Your truth has no place on these internets.
