"Craft is what enables you to be successful
when you're not inspired." - Brian Eno
Record Mirror NOVEMBER 13, 1976 - by David Brown
A memorable occasional band featuring the talents of Roxy guitarist Phil Manzanera and vocalist extraordinaire Brian Eno. Though recorded in the confines of London's Queen Elizabeth Hall, the set reflects the same atmosphere of the woodsmoke-filled air of the Reading Festival a few days earlier. The music comes from the two leaders' solo albums and has a sense of the unreal about it, featuring knife-edge beats and strange world rhythms. Highlight of the whole affair is when they somehow manage to weld in the Kinks' You Really Got Me into their own Miss Shapiro composition. Clever and clean.
