"In every dreamhome a heartache", Sonar Festival, Barcelona ...
How I Spent my Summer Vacation by Johannes Ayres Esq.
One of the Three Songs i sat in on with my heroes
Roxy Music at Sonar this year... also played on Virginia Plain,
and The Strand..as well as a stellar set with my own band, Iao Core
earlier that afternoon... before you go thinking how prestigious to
be filling the shoes of Brian Eno, let me just say.. Mr. Ferry and Mr. Eno
hate each other passionately.. In Eno's song "Dead Finks Don't Talk"
the "headless chicken who's teeth take so much kickin'" is a reference
to you know who. I believe the idea this time round (2010 tour) was to use a different
"nobody" at every show to play the Eno parts in the songs recorded during
Eno's tenure in R.M. as a way of showing how insignificant the 801 was....
If they could have found a chimp that could twiddle the knobs on a synthesiser
while wearing a blonde wig, they surely would have gone with that over me....
Did I care? What do you think?
