Brian Eno - Here Come The Warm Jets Poll ~ Oh no Oh no Oh no Oh no Oh no!

Message Bookmarked

In the grip of this album lately, did not find a poll on ilm on this smack damn perfect Brian Eno album. Yes, 'Another Green World' exists and it is glorious (a beast of of it's own) and 'Taking Tiger Mountain', but 'Warm Jets' is proto-glam Eno album at its very best. Never happened before, never replicated. Unique. Oh no oh no oh no oh no oh no!

When I first saw the thread, I thought "hmm, definitely 'Needles in the Camel's Eye'" but looking at the tracklisting again, I'm now not quite sure.

Never quite warmed to this one. It strikes me as vulgar at places. Like a bunch of Disney melodies with some Zappa-like scorn over it. The title track in particular reminds me of Hot Rats. Went with Needles in the Camel's Eye cause it's a good take on Bowie's take on the Velvets. Love Another Green World completely.

I love AGW too, but the vulgarity -- a correct term -- is exactly what I love about it. IF you didn't know the biographical detritus, the record would still sound like a declaration of independence.

I haven't listened to this one in a while. It's my least favourite of the big four pop albums. I want to go with Faraway Beach, but I have to relisten.

i used to share an office with a very soberminded korean in grad school, and one of the few times he commented on my music was 'warm jets': he wanted to know why i would listen to 'music for children' when i still appreciated mozart and schubert and whatever

AGW feels organic to me. The vulgarity there is the sort that comes out when you're at peace with yourself. On HCTWJ it sounds more like throwing shit on the wall and hence scornful. So like instrumental Zappa not vocal Zappa. That's why I mentioned Hot Rats.

gospodin simmel, Monday, 3 April 2017 23:27 (one year ago) Permalink

Like I'll Come Running is also a vulgar and cartoonish song in a sense but it's completely beautiful and captivating. Something like On Some Faraway Beach sounds manipulative in comparison imo.

My favorite album of his. Kind of an impossible choice. Probably "Needles" just because it floats in out of nowhere at full speed with vaguely annoying guitars and vocals that seem to be being improvised while they're being sung, and the song only really figures out what it's doing during the bridge. I bought the album at the Vassar College bookstore as a cut-out in like '86 or '87, knowing that "Eno" meant "important" but having been slightly underwhelmed by Desert Island Selection (one of the first CDs I ever bought). And then the song goes on to fade out before you can really get a grip on what just happened. Ultimately it hit me at the time as an incomprehensible blast of catchy weirdness from some other place...much more than anything else Eno ever did.

Baby's On Fire was tempting, but it's a little too too. Same for a lot of the (wonderful) tracks on this album. Needles, more than many things he did, is just an odd dream that appears and disappears before you can really come to grips with it.

dlp9001, Monday, 3 April 2017 23:40 (one year ago) Permalink

xxxp Well it is sort of radically earnest, which can strike random soberminded colleagues as vulgar. Not unlike Still the Same which I also love unabashedly.

Title track probably. When it comes down to it. Love this album though, I even like "Driving Me Backwards", although Kevin Ayers' "Song from a Bottom of a Well" did it first and better. "Cindy Tells Me" is a bit sneery, true.

It's tough but I went with Needles. The immediate runners up are Paw Paw, Finks, Cindy, and Baby -- but they're all pretty damn great.

Blood On The Knobs, Tuesday, 4 April 2017 02:39 (one year ago) Permalink

For me it's between Needles and Blank Frank. The former is just a great driving pop song with careening guitars while the latter has that weird calliope thing in the middle that is just too demented.

Naive Teen Idol, Tuesday, 4 April 2017 03:02 (one year ago) Permalink

I didn't like Velvet Goldmine much, but "Needle" was used to perfect effect in it. That's kind of the only way I can elevate one of the first four songs above the rest - they're all excellent

Vinnie, Tuesday, 4 April 2017 03:03 (one year ago) Permalink

"dead finks don't talk" for paul thompson's wonderful drum pattern and the hand claps that come in after the guitar solo in the "bless my soul" section. and yeah, the sequencing at the end is lovely. title track could be looped for hours; when the drums finally sync up it's a really nice moment.

budo jeru, Tuesday, 4 April 2017 03:06 (one year ago) Permalink

regarding vulgarity, i once read an eno interview wherein he confirms that the title is a reference to urolagnia. but that's rather oblique in my opinion and i simply can't understand where the zappa comparisons are coming from

What can we say? The man loves his piss. Literally.

Naive Teen Idol, Tuesday, 4 April 2017 03:17 (one year ago) Permalink

thinking about it, this album really should be ranked in terms of moments rather than songs. i agree that the blipping, chirping slide guitar on "some of them are old" is one of the strongest parts of this record. but i also think the song itself lacks momentum ("remember me" part goes on forever it seems like), and then BOOM title track kicks in and it's total bliss (similar effect when the lyrics to "baby's on fire" come in, after that interminable intro). part of me thinks that the songs being boring or hackneyed or kind half-assed in terms of pop artistry is what makes the cool moments feel so sublime. the technique is more or less inverted on "another green world" -- the long droney bits make a song like "i'll come running" feel magical, in much the same way that i'll do backflips for some bottom-of-the-barrel 1960s top 40 single after a four-hour brötzmann binge or whatever

i really think that the lines people point to that seem to suggest some kind of unsavory sexual politics on eno's part are best read in context. everybody knows the lyrics on this LP are total dada word salad free association and coupled with eno's sort of androgynous self-presentation, stuff like that "armchair" bit read more like an accidental satire of big macho rock lyrics, rather than some kind of sly pseudo-poetic misogyny-but-i'm-an-artist-haha, y'know?

I have on occasion taken off my earbuds during the title track to check if there actually is a bell going off somewhere. I love it. Also love two drum kits playing practically the same thing at the same time.

Like early Roxy and solo albums are tastier than Zappa sure, but it's not that different of a wheelhouse. Ferry had enough genuine leading man gusto to tamper it a bit and the difference after Eno left is telling.

It is that different of a wheelhouse(?) As for Roxy, Eno twiddled knobs + wore feather boas, it was Ferry's band.

Think of the pretty parts of Peaches En Regalia and tell me you don't hear the similarity!

I can't hear the similarity.

Bill Teeters (Tom D.), Wednesday, 5 April 2017 09:03 (one year ago) Permalink

I mean, I don't think it's crazy to see black humour and misanthropy in a rock song called "Baby's on Fire" that is literally about a woman on fire and written with this tone:

Baby's on fire
Better throw her in the water
Look at her laughing
Like a heifer to the slaughter

Baby's on fire
And all the laughing boys are bitching
Waiting for photos
Oh the plot is so bewitching

Rescuers row, row
Do your best to change the subject
Blow the wind blow, blow
Lend some assistance to the object

Photographers snip snap
Take your time, she's only burning
This kind of experience
Is necessary for her learning

Idk what the digression about Juanita and Juan is really about, though.

This was precisely what prompted me to poll it, randomly grabbed the cd out of a box and played it on the road for a couple of days. A week later my appreciation for it was completely revived and upgraded.
Shame someone brought Zappa into this, he's the last person on my mind when thinking about Eno. Always though of 'Baby's On Fire's lyrics as a critique on gossip/press/voyeurism/celebrity cult.

Perfect album, impossible to vote in my own poll, but will give it to the title track.

I don't think this contradicts the idea that there is a misanthropic element in there. (Zappa critiqued those things too, tbf, not that it was the first comparison that came to mind for me either.)

Anyway, I didn't expect the title track to win either but it is also really satisfying.

Baby's On Fire 17

Here Come The Warm Jets 11
Cindy Tells Me 9
The Paw Paw Negro Blowtorch 9
Dead Finks Don't Talk 5
Blank Frank 4
Driving Me Backwards 2
Some Of Them Are Old 2

Same top 4 sequence, except that the title track shot forward from fourth to become the dominating favorite. Rest also looks the same, except TPPNB collapses from a nine-vote constituency to a lone voter. No idea what to make of either development but against an otherwise unchanging background it'd be interesting to think about reasons why.

At least as of a few years ago — he talked about it on the Colbert Report and elsewhere — he was getting together with friends to sing on a weekly basis, an exercise in pure pleasure that he meant to keep fun and fresh by saying no recordings allowed. I don't think not doing something for public consumption necessarily means that he undervalues it. Maybe yes maybe no.

It was his 70th birthday today, and I'm listening to the Warm Jets record and thinking, as much as I love his ambient work,that I would love to hear more of his singing and (lyrical) songwriting. That said, the 6-disc ambient set he released this year is great too.
