Brian Eno and the Winkies - "Peel Session 26/02/1974"

Yes, Pub Rock band 'The Winkies' accompanied everyone's favourite 'non-musician' Brian Eno, on his first solo tour in 1974.
Unfortunately for Bri', after five dates,he got a collapsed lung, and that was that!
They did however manage a John Peel session for the BBC, showcasing his particular brand of Arty Rock.Doing mostly tracks from "Here Come The Warm Jets", plus a camp version of Peggy Lee's classic "Fever"......this must have sounded like it came from outer space in 1974.
Good isn't he?

Not sure that the Winkies don't made ENO's music sound, rather ordinary for though they make a decent fist of it stripped of the Fripperies and so on of the Warm Jets sessions it is all a bit nothing in particular. The collapsed lung must have been a blessing and I don't think he has toured since - though he did those dates with Cale, Ayres and Nico which are much better...
