BRIAN ENO COMMENTS ON 'CURIOSITIES':
The pieces on this record are singularities, things that didn't fit together with enough other things to ever make a whole album.

Thus 'Circus Mathematics' was imagined as part of a group of pieces called 'Mathematical Piano Music', but only three others ever materialized, and 'Ambient Savage' is the only surviving example of the little-known but much-mourned 'Afro-Ambient' genre.

'Castro Haze' was the first, and, as it transpired, the last representative of the cycle which was to have been known as 'Unsuccessful Boxers' - the Castro in question was a welterweight who ultimately failed in his bid to seize fame.

The 'Thrash Funk' category of which 'War Fetish' is a proud member, has been more prolific but still not quite abundant enough to justify a whole CD. 'Work/Wank' belongs to a long tradition of songs with very few lyrics ('Hot Pastrami', 'Mashed Potatoes' and 'Wipeout' come to mind), and, together with 'Draw One Animal' formed the beginning of my projected CD '11 things to do on a dull afternoon'. Unfortunately this project failed because I could only think of three.

Yes, although it appears that you are somehow contacting me from 6 hours in the future. Are you living faster?

Wait, I'm here too. The clock on my PC is fine, and there's nowhere in the 'reply' mechanism to change the time. What gives here?
