Brian Eno Becomes Blowhard Journalist Dick Flash in Wacky New Video
Published Nov 04, 2010Since first breaking the news that production guru Brian Eno had signed with Warp Records for his next album, we've been salivating for its release. The wait is finally over, as Small Craft on a Milk Sea finally arrived this week, and to celebrate, Eno has dropped a nine-minute, mockumentary-style video.
In the clip, which is viewable below, Eno dons a wig, some glasses and becomes Dick Flash, a pretentious, long-winded blowhard of a music journalist. Then, interviewing the real Brian Eno, he drops big words and strokes his ego while asking unnecessarily meandering questions. When the real Eno does get to talk, he talks about Annie Lennox's haircut, the Sex Pistols and hiring a roadie to smash an illegal downloader's bike. It's like a high-brow version of a Funny or Die clip.
Small Craft on a Milk Sea is currently available for free streaming as Exclaim's Album of the Week. Please keep your henchman away from us, Mr. Eno! We got permission for the stream.
