First of two new Eno-based works released

Following on from the preview of a couple of excerpts on David’s podcast last week, Crispycat Recordings today releases the 29th CBQ soundscapes album in the form of the snappily titled “Variation on Brian Eno’s “Thursday Afternoon”.

Stemming from a chance conversation about “the first three CDs you bought” (David’s 1st was Eno’s “Thursday Afternoon” in October 1985), this 62 minute piece uses replicas of the piano, sine wave, drone and shimmer loops used by Eno on the original recording, along with half speed “sky saw” guitar recorded by David in 1997 for the briefly available 2CD set “Flitterkram: The Music of Fripp & Eno” and comes with two hours of bonus material for downloaders.

Listener, Andrew Wilkinson had a good take on it : “It’s like meeting up with an old friend after a very long time and noticing all the ways in which they have changed, and yet in many ways they’re still the same”

Give it a spin, or, better still, download…
