We continue our fascination of the late, great British broadcaster John Peel with another excellent show from the archives. This time the collaboration of two sonic visionaries in 1973 that produced the often talked about album No Pussyfooting that was designed to showcase tape-echo and delay techniques to the mass pop audience. Here, the gentlemen offered two tracks exclusively for Peel's Top Gear show.

ROBERT FRIPP & BRIAN ENO
John Peel's Top Gear [No label, 1CD]
November 1973


The money on the table is that this "session" never existed and that John Peel was in on the joke. Apparently, someone thought it would be a lark to just reverse the flow of the No Pussyfooting album and have Peel introduce them as the "tracks" from the said album. Some Eno fans swear that this session was just the LP played backwards. If that's true it's still worth listening as Eno and Fripp were trying to get the three-minute pop music fan to think deeper into sound and the ambience it created. It takes an open mind to allow for such experiments on national radio. You just won't hear anything like this today. There's still NOTHING ON THE RADIO.
