Thank you for the post.
I have been a fan of Brian Eno since his early Roxy Music days.
And I agree with you, Bush of Ghosts is an amazing album.

His article makes me respect him even more. Thank you for the link.


I remember the hypocrisy of Dire Straits boycotting South Africa and then starting their world tour in Israel in the 1980s. Now I see a number of musicians have come out against apartheid in Palestine as well. I was glad to see that Annie Lennox, another talented artist, denounce Israel's atrocities in Gaza the other day.

"The Israelis are a gifted and resourceful people who fully deserve the right to live in peace, but who seem intent on squandering every chance to allow that to happen." brian eno at c-p

no, brian, they are not gifted nor resourceful. they are thieves and thugs. they have no right to live in peace in someone else's home on someone else's land and by brute, savage force take their resources. well, taking someone's resources is, i guess, sort of resourceful. and brian, they do not squander chances. they, the jews, do not want chances at peace. peace hinders theft and genocide.

notice how he had to get on his knees before he said something.
