9781556529429: On Some Faraway Beach: The Life and Times of Brian Eno

Few record collections remain untouched by Brian Eno’s aesthetic DNA: from ambient soundscapes and world-music hybrids to cut ’n’ paste vocal samples and amniotic chill-out rooms, Eno is all around us. A sonic alchemist to the stars, his address book is a veritable who’s who of rock and his credit adorns an outrageous number of albums. Tellingly, Eno’s work with Roxy Music, David Bowie, Talking Heads, Devo, U2, and Coldplay has coincided with those artists producing their most critically revered work. On Some Faraway Beach is the first serious, critical examination of the life and times of Brian Eno. David Sheppard has interviewed key collaborators like David Byrne, Robert Wyatt, John Cale, Bryan Ferry, and Gavin Bryars. But more importantly, Sheppard has had considerable assistance and input from Brian and Anthea Eno themselves, while retaining an edge and independence in keeping with his subject.

About the Author:

David Sheppard is a practicing musician and a writer on music and culture in the UK and the author of Elvis Costello and Leonard Cohen.

Review:

"A valuable document of one of late-20th-century pop music’s key influencers."  Publishers Weekly

"[An] honourable, authorized attempt to do justice to a mind-bogglingly restless and prolific subject. . . . With his uninhibited fondness for sex and intriguing cultural hypotheses, Eno comes across in On a Faraway Beach as an archetypal man of the 1970s."  The Sunday Times



"An authoritative bible for Enophiles everywhere, On Some Faraway Beach will also intrigue more casual fans curious to investigate the creative inner workings of such a cryptic artist."  Under the Radar

"An extraordinary tale of how rock's most infamous non-musician became pop's most articulate spokesman and in-demand producer."  Mojo



"Interesting . . . passionate."  Buzzine

"Sheppard has corralled the many strands of Eno's hectic creative life into a coherent and highly readable account. . . . The book . . . sends you scurrying back to the actual records."  Total Music



"An authoritative bible for Enophiles everywhere, On Some Faraway Beach will also intrigue more casual fans curious to investigate the creative inner workings of such a cryptic artist."  Under the Radar

"That it’s essential reading for Enophiles should go without saying, but it should also be on the bookshelf of anybody curious about how the avant-garde infiltrated popular culture over the past three decades."  JamsBio Magazine
