Blimey! I check out the site and not only is there a Vented Spleen piece from the previously missing-in-action Comrade Coventry, but Tony Tourette has reviewed a box set. True, they're talking about ancient history (or their "recent past", as they might put it) but it's good to have them back!

It's our most ambitious, avant garde piece yet. You have to construct the music yourselves out of clues hidden in the text.

And when you do it sounds just like Gilbert O'Sullivan.

Take that, Brian Eno!

It's quite eerie that the name Gilbert O'Sullivan contains all the letters of "Brian Eno". And they've never been seen together. And "Oblique Strategies" is a town in County Cork. Now I don't want to jump to conclusions...

Actually, Gilbert O'Sullivan was really Ian Curtis:

And Brian Eno was really Joni Mitchell:

Rhyming 'Brian Eno' with 'What [the fuck] does he know?' seems to be a more common in song than you'd imagine.
