Brian Eno - 'Here Come the Warm Jets'
Here Come the Warm Jets

In 1974, following his departure from Roxy Music, Brian Eno released his first solo album, Here Come the Warm Jets. The album (and its followup) is probably his most similar to the art rock of Roxy Music, before Brian began experimenting with soundscapes and eventually created some of our most interesting ambient music. Despite his large departure in sound from Here Come the Warm Jets, the material on that album has been a long lasting influence on indie rock, and like the show at the Rock Shop this past May, on January 8 at Joe's Pub, a number of indie rock musicians will honor the album and perform the entire thing. The contributing musicians include Travis Morrison (of The Dismemberment Plan, who also performed at the Rock Shop show), Sohrab Habibion (Obits), James Sclavunos (The Bad Seeds/Grinderman), Vernon Reid (Living Color), Paul Duncan (Warm Ghost), Dom Cippola (Phantom Family Halo), and JG Thirlwell (aka Foetus). Tickets for the show are on sale now.

I wonder who's going to handle Robert Fripp's guitar solos. They should have got St. Vincent for that...

Catch Obits on 12/30 at the Bell House with Ted Leo, and then at Cake Shop in March.

Some tracks from Here Come the Warm Jets below...

some of these artists don't deserve to be mentioned in the same html document as a genius like Eno. JG Thirlwell rules tho.

The show at the Rock Shop was surprisingly great.

"I wonder who's going to handle Robert Fripp's guitar solos.

Vernon Reid was supposed to play at the Rock Shop show, but had to pull out. Instead someone played the solos on a saxophone. Turned out really good. Does anybody know who that was?

A lot of the guitar on the original album was by Paul Rudolph of the Pink Fairies, who later replaced Lemmy in Hawkwind.

you could sit at home and listen to the classic album, instead of give props to poseurs

I just discovered this album this year and I must say, it has been one of my favorite listening experiences to date. Not sure that I would be too keen on other artists playing it, but I appreciate the sentiment of the homage.


An album of the ages for sure!

Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy) is superior, in my opinion. Love Here Come.. but yeah, far greater.

And yeah, come to think of it, it hardly gets much love. Another Green World and this one are the ones people mention the most. ALL of Eno's stuff in the 70's are great, including Before And After Science (Backwater is worth it alone..)

To the dude that is getting into Eno, EVERYTHING in the the 70's in worth listening to.

sweet - HCTWJ is one of my faovorite albums of all time. Bought my first copy of it in the 70's in a cut out bin for 99 cents. Agree all the 70's Eno albums are awesome with many outstanding session musicians.
