The soundtrack- in honor of Brian Eno’s 70th birthday last week , 10 of YHC’s favorite Brian Eno produced songs .
Why ? Brian Eno is one of the most interesting and creative people you may not know about. Born in Suffolk, Eno studied painting and experimental music at the art school at Ipswich Civic College in the mid 1960s and then at Winchester School of Art. He joined glam rock group Roxy Music as synthesiser player in 1971. After recording two albums with the band, he departed in 1973 to record a number of solo albums, coining the term “ambient music” to describe his work on releases such as Another Green World (1975), Discreet Music (1975), and Music for Airports (1978). Meanwhile, he took part in frequent collaborations with artists such as Robert Fripp, Cluster, Harold Budd, David Bowie on his “Berlin Trilogy“, and David Byrne, as well as beginning a parallel career as a producer, which included work on albums by Talking Heads and Devo, the ‘no wave‘ compilation No New York (1978), and recordings by artists including John Cale, Jon Hassell, Laraaji, and Budd amongst others.
Since then, Eno has continued to record solo albums whilst also collaborating with and producing other artists, including U2, Laurie Anderson, Grace Jones, Slowdive, Coldplay, James Blake. Dating back to his time as a student, he has also worked in other media, including sound installations and his mid-70s co-development of Oblique Strategies, a deck of cards featuring cryptic aphorisms intended to spur creative thinking. From the 1970s onwards, Eno’s installations have included the sails of the Sydney Opera House in 2009 and the Lovell Telescope at Jodrell Bank in 2016.
The Thang –
5 minutes of Indian run . Of course.
25 minutes of 4 teams 6v6 ultimate frisbee. 10 -15 merkins after each score , led by the scorer or a new pax who has not lead a Q.
15 minutes of Broga.
A short meditation on creation and creativity and a call to action on the importance of legacy – we all have the potential to leave a legacy of something we have created. Brian Eno , despite limited musical proficiency is frequently referred to as one of popular music’s most influential artists. Critic Jason Ankeny at AllMusic argues that Eno “forever altered the ways in which music is approached, composed, performed, and perceived, and everything from punk to techno to new age bears his unmistakable influence.”
Despite the overall aversion to stretching F3 nation seems to promulgate, the local Pax seemed eager and willing to do some Broga . YHC was gratified to see this .
There were clearly some former ultimate players in the Pax – ahem Gravity , and lots of enthusiasm coupled with the occasional foul – sorry for the hip check- Dixie Chick .
Nice to see a true OG show up – scuba Steve was part of the original launch team in Wilmington . He will be EHing his actual brothers to Baywatch tomorrow. T-claps
Welcome FNG Tige Brewbaker aka Pennywise . You got a great name brother – now you owe us a terrifying beat down
Tom Sawyer provided some good pun-ishment during Broga. 👏🏽

Two pax lifted up prayers for friends dealing with serious illness . Flounder shared one , and memory fails me on the other- please post them in the 3rd F channel.
safety for YHC’s daughter leaving for Korea to study abroad for the summer.
Praise for another day in paradise . Let it be known that when that time comes that YHC goes to see the Sky Q, he hopes it will be while doing what he loved , enjoying a good sweat in the early morning gloom with the Pax. No CPR necessary. Nice to be with y’all today .
