Brian Eno: An Uncle, A Celebrity, A Masturbator

Ben Thompson, 'Ways of Hearing' , 2001

ON THE BACK cover of A Year with Swollen Appendices, Brian Eno's diary of 1995, he supplies a handy guide to some of the things that he is: "a mammal, an Anglo-Saxon, an uncle, a celebrity, a masturbator". Further insight into the mind of the enigmatic musician, record-producer and artist is furnished by his diary entry for 26 August.
