“Seven Deadly Finns” – Brian Eno

Brian Eno’s stab at a “hit” single, circa 1974. Of course, it’s totally f–king brilliant, as was everything Eno did back in those days. But I love the way that Eno tried to stay within the pop song format, but still totally unleash all of the wild, twisted, weird, and avant-garde s–t he was famous for. A great experiment and a great single. Too bad the record buying public didn’t feel the same way. From a January 1974 appearance on the Dutch pop TV show TOPPOP.
