The relation between Eno and Nirvana is that of opposites. Eno is a pure aesthete who, while inspired by the urgency of rock, abstracts everything and never fully shows his hand. Cobain, though he was into all manner of artiness, expressed himself with his heart on his sleeve. Eno's all about oblique strategies, looking at the world askance and bemused; Nirvana were aiming for direct communication -- Cobain stares at you, or at his own reflection, and howls.

Eno made an album called My Life In The Bush of Ghosts. Since the cessation of his life, Cobain's ghost has been represented by the band Bush, who are a witless bag of piss.― DJ Mencap (DJ Mencap), Friday, December 19, 2003 5:39 AM (8 years ago) Bookmark Flag Post Permalink

In some alternate universe, Eno produced Cobain's fourth solo album, released in 2003. It was terrible.
