Eno joins Roxy revival

Other Brian back in - but won't play live
13 Jun 05 - The new Roxy Music album WILL feature the unrivalled sonic expertise of Brian Eno after all. His input was vital to shaping the band's early sound, but he quit the band after their classic second album - For Your Pleasure. He later admitted that he knew he had to go when he found himself thinking about his laundry when he was supposed to be singing backing vocals at a Roxy gig.

Since the 70s, Eno has been revered as an ambient music pioneer and producer for David Bowie and U2. The rumour that he might be involved in the band's latest reunion - which had previously been denied - was confirmed by Bryan Ferry at the Isle of Wight Festival, after Roxy Music played on Saturday.

He said: "I hope he's going to come in and do some things on a few tracks. No live work, but on the record I hope he'll come and do something, yeah."

The two Brian's last worked together in 2002 on Ferry's solo album, Frantic, when Eno contributed the melody line for I Thought and helped out with the production.

The remaining members of Roxy's classic line-up made their latest comeback at Koko in London on 9 June. Andy Mackay, Phil Manzanera, and Paul Thompson will all contribute creatively to the new material. As yet there's no word on a release date. They're currently touring the European festival circuit.

Eno's latest solo album, Another Day On Earth, is out today.
