The Anything Goes Music Thread!


Recommended Posts

Coming from NZ, in those days, we had no vision, of any of this, only the vinyl or the radio. The TV we did have, was not going to display Avant-garde performers.

So I hadn't seen how ultra-camp he was in the early days.

I studied 7 years of classical Piano, Royal Schools (now ABRSM), so I was feeding on Eno's music, with Roxy Music, 801, Before and After Science, Taking Tiger Mountain and Another Green World.

When I realise, that he was working with some of the biggest names of the era, I now stand back, satisfied with my early enthusiasm for his work.

Some of those names, are:   John Cale, Genesis, Phil Manzanera, John Cage, David Bowie, Ultravox, Talking Heads, Devo, Toto, U2, Laurie Anderson, Sinéad O'Connor, Coldplay, Paul Simon, Grace Jones, Jean-Michel Jarre, Penguin Cafe Orchestra.

Special mention: Robert Fripp, Phil Manzanera, Andy Mackay...

I remember being in a Soi of Suk watching a accoustic amateur night, 


Some expat older than me, very good muso, got up and played, 


"Hey old man look at my life I'm a lot like you were


To which I yelled very loudly


"You are an old man"" 


He bravely played on, along with the crowd now yelling "You are an old man"" similar to the living next door to alice


I mean, for fucks sake, dont sing that!
