David Byrne and Brian Eno – My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts
Another one I discovered late, again, collecting records. I was probably in my early 20s and I just think it’s a beautiful record. It was weird, Company Flow had just put out this record called Little Jonny from the Hospitul and a couple of reviews mentioned this record. I didn’t know what it was so I looked it up and saw it was Brian Eno and David Byrne. I literally found it in like 1999 through reviews and I was like “what are they talking about? I have to go find this fucking thing.” I’m not saying I do what they do, but I understood the references of this amazing, beautiful, fucked-up record.
