ENO: HERE COME THE WARM JETS
The idea of this record - top of the pops from a quasi-dadaist British synth wizard who makes out with the Soft-Machine - is a lot worse than the actuality, which engages the ear and the mind in a vaguely Velvet Underground sort of way, instead of just trying to. Minimally differentiated variations on the same melody recur and recur, but it's a nice melody and chances are he meant it that way. Some good words, too.
