I didn't like what Eno did on Paul Simon's last album, but I would still love to hear these tunes.

I really liked Surprise... Some of it was brilliant. It's cool that Simon will still go out on a limb like that. I'd love to hear him take it further.

I actually liked Surprise. It has a few duds, but I thought Eno did a fantastic job. Makes me excited for this Byrne collaberation.

I liked the songwriting on Surprise, but I didn't like the production. Too slick, dynamics squashed, which is sad because I love Eno's work. I was actually listening to Berlin when I read this post.

Hey anon 10:49, did you mean the Lou Reed album (which was produced by Bob Ezrin, not Eno) or the 3 Berlin-era David Bowie albums that Eno collaborated on? Just curious.

I meant Low, but I was thinking Berlin era. :)

"they are playing Terminal 5 in August"

If that were to be true, it would be awesome if they can play during Fri/Sat of APW when everyone else is seeing Radiohead.

Greatest news ever.

follow the link for the rest of the story. 40% of the planned set would be Eno-era Talking Heads stuff. Fuckin' hell!

Perhaps some "Bush of Ghosts" jams, too?

Like you said, Mark B.: Greatest News EVER!

Yeah, but no Tina or Chris. Boo! Tina is one of my favorite bassists ever. And he won't release the album on his own label?

pretty much the best news ever. i would prefer this over a reunion.

OMFG and all that, but if you read to the end of the daily swarm article there is a slight correction at the end:

"Brian will not be touring with David Byrne"

so never fucking mind.

Yeah, false alarm. Might want to change the title of the posting.
