Michael Brook: Zoo Aquarium, London

Ian Gittins, Melody Maker, 13 June 1992

MICHAEL BROOK is a Canadian music theorist with an impressive list of past collaborators. He's worked with Brian Eno, Daniel Lanois, U2 and Sinead O'Connor, and he produced the debut LPs of Mary Margaret O'Hara and Rain Tree Crow. He also invented the peculiar device known as the Infinite Guitar used by The Edge on his sky-scrabbling intro to 'I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For'. He's an amiable, dapper backroom genius who's been around.
