Donna Summer was the proggiest of the Disco divas having made a couple of concept albums and recorded a 8 minute version of Jimmy Webb's MacArthur Park

And other things.

Including some bad things.
But nobody talks about that."

I've always enjoyed that Eno story because the first time I heard the song in question it hit me the same way. I was in a friend's car, and he was playing his dashboard am radio. At the time we were living in a one dead horse town in East Texas and the am radio usually played music by The Bellamy Brothers, Freddy Fender and BJ Thomas, all of a sudden this song comes on that sounded like it could have been from Mars. Many years later I found out that Eno had a similar ephinac experience while listening to this same song ... the rest of the story when I return.

Now that ambient electronic music, techno and techno-related music are more and more becoming the norm for background music (especially in large urban areas) it is probably really hard to understand just how weird Summer and Moroder's first hit sounded. It definitley got your attention if you were living in semi-rural USA. At that time it was hard to believe that a song like that could become a top 40 hit all across the states.
Now you know the rest of the story.

1st prize - Dean, and bonus points for his hilarious image of an overly stimulated and giddy Eno drunk at a cocktail party and gushing at every other song that comes on the stereo and saying 'Hear that, thas the future of music'.

2nd Prize - Anderson III for knowing that Miles' ambient proto-trip hop masterpiece "He Loved Him Madly" was a big influence on Eno.

3rd prize - Stonebeard for knowing Roger Eno's middle name.

4th prize - Micky for thinking I might have an ulterior motive with this poll (takes one to know one) ha ha ... yeah, Eno said the JH Experience was the future of music, unfortunately it was 2002 when he said it, probably drunk again.




Bands left out:

All the bands mentioned presented major stylistic and 'futuristic' influences within their respective genres, but in retrospect I could have included Kraftwerk ... Duh!    Run DMC, Public Enemy, Stereolab, Aphex Twin etc etc.

If I didn't already know the qoute, I would have guessed Devo, unless Kraftwerk would have been included.

Now that I think about it not that surprising.  Those sequenced synths would have drawn him to I Feel Love like a fly to sh*t.  Same thing happened to me, and I hated disco.

Brian Eno was always going on about the future of music.  I've read that he said something similar when he heard a My Bloody Valentine album (haven't read through the whole thread, so this may have been raised already).
