What music are you currently grooving to, Roger Eno is asked in the January edition of Mojo music magazine, and he says: „I never ‚groove‘ to music as I find such an activity unsightly and indecorous in a man of my age. This sort of question would be better addressed to Sir Bruce Foryth. If you’re referring to what I’m listening to, it would be medieval Netherlandish composer Gilles Binchois. Born in 1400, died in 1460. He’s very good indeed.“  Roger Eno has just released a revealing compilation called „Little Things Left Behind“ mirroring his years with All Saints Records, and a subtle blend of Satiesque moods, old British folk sprits, and modern chamber music with a dreamy edge. The Tindersticks love Roger Eno. 2014 will see the re-release of his brilliant debut „Voices“ which came into life in the famous Grant Avenue Studios of Dan and Bob Lanois.

    Ja, habe ich am Samstag auch gelesen! Dieser leise Spott über die stereotypen Fragen… hat was.

    Q: What Do You Sing In The Shower ?

    A: I bathe and read in the bath. I am currently finishing „Stalingrad“ by Antony Beevor. I whistle only when I boil, or when I am calling my dog.

    Unheimlich sympathischer Mensch, habe ihn mal im Cafe Tucholsky in Bochum interviewt.
    A warm heart.
