BLACK NEEDLE NOISE Lost In Reflections

A year on, and the noise magician is ready to serve his follow-up dish of BLACK NEEDLE NOISE, this time thoughtfully titled 'Lost In Reflections'.

Here He Comes: The Legacy of ENO

Brian Peter George St John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno started out as the EMS VCS3 wielding non-musician in ROXY MUSIC. Eno’s first four classic vocal albums ‘Here Come The Warm Jets’, ‘Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy)’, ‘Another Green World’ and ‘Before & After Science’ have been reissued as deluxe gatefold 2LP heavyweight vinyl editions mastered at half-speed for 45RPM, effectively now presenting each album as two EP mini-albums.

But with ‘Ath.Lon - Rejected Demos’, MARSHEAUX readily show how the modern day version of home taping is skill in music. More Inside ›
