Essential Records | Brian Eno & David Byrne - My Life in the Bush of Ghosts

  

In 1981 Eno & Byrne teamed up and made a record that incorporates the sound both of these guys were into at the time.  This may sound lame, but if you were describing a record to someone and said, "It sounds like a mix between Brian Eno and David Byrne", that would be this record.  Some might think that's obvious but they could have made a record that sounded like anything right? ....ummm yeah. You can hear snippets from the 2006 reissue at Amazon and if you're savy enough I'm sure you can find the download.

Sex, Design & Furniture: The Obsessions of Carlo Mollino

Crazy, artistic, stingy, obsessed with taxes. Sex maniac, master architect, drug addict, genius. Carlo Mollino (1905-1973) is one of the most colorful figures in the world of architecture and Italian design.

He spent his life in the tranquil city of Torino, where a character such as he had few hopes to fit in. Even today, 20 years after his death, there has been little effort made to keep the memory of this extraordinary person alive. Quite to the contrary, many of his architectural works have fallen into a state of disrepair.

Essential Records | Zoo - Hard Times, Good Times

Zoo were a French funk, rock, fuzz band that sang in English, which is most likely why the lyrics aren't that great. At any rate, they were probably big with the Cocaine set and their video is groovy.
