You forget the shoulder pads and eyeliner (both interchangeable with the Acme Steve Priest kit).

If you haven't - have a pop on this Cusp. Gives you all the Eno-info you need. A walloping read. Apparently Blank Frank was a real life Ipswich villain who talked in riddles.

I can see future in limited editions of rockers-in-a-box J. Steve Priest has been added to the list, perhaps Johnny Rotten - any other suggestions always welcome

PS did you know Pete Shelley's legendary dodgy Buzzcocks guitar was a Starway

What you can actually buy those Oblique Strategy cards!

A work colleague of mine once emptied out several decades-worth of amassed stationery and trinkets out of his desk and gave it all away to anyone who wanted any of it. Among the pile of random objects was a set of Oblique Strategies cards. I sold them on eBay for over £200. Result!

Great, but I'll hold on for the 75-79 edition. You can use it to create your own ambience you know.

Mondo said...

Oh yes try here - buy here from Eno's website (£30 a set)..

What a result Red. When I worked in an Audio Visual unit, one of the library CDs was this Eno industry only release, which I borrowed and forgot to give back. That ended up on eBay closing for a tidy price too

The 75-79 edish is in development Davy.

I keep seeing the Contemporary Edition (life sized) wandering round near where I live. Very realistic movement and grip function.

aw, the synthesizer thing seems to be an expansion pack of some type. Phooey, what software does it require?

Mondo said...

Incredible I imagine he's a shorty ISB (they always are). We used to go camping in Woodbridge and would buzz about trying to work out which houses were Eno's.

I'd use it with Ableton JM, but the freebies Audacity or Reaper should allow you to patch in and play
