#MinutsMusicals de1974 amb "Third Uncle" de Brian Eno


Hi ha músics que li deuen molt a la música i músics a qui la música tindrà sempre un deute etern... Brian Eno possiblement es troba entre aquests segons!

Músic experimental i precursor de la música electrònica Brian Eno és d'aquells músics més reconeguts pels propis músics que no pel públic en general, doncs la seva música no ha estat ni és habitual de ràdio-fórmules...

Peça clau dels primers Roxy Music (Bryan Ferry, Phil Manzanera...) a les seves mans, entre els seus dits, els sintetitzadors van viure un gran desplegament en el món de la música pop-rock.

L'any 1974, després d'abandonar Roxy Music el 1973, publica els seus dos primers discs en solitari, "Here Come The Warm Jets" i "Taking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy)". D'aquest segon disc és el tema que he seleccionat per avui, "Third Uncle", cançó precursora del punk (moviment que esclataria 3 anys després) i que a mi em transporta al post-punk depressiu de Joy Division i el seu turmentat Ian Curtis.

Aquí el teniu, Brian Eno contribuint, amb aquesta lletra i aquesta cançó, a definir les línies mestres de la música punk!



Third Uncle

There are tins
There was pork
There are legs
There are sharks
There was John
There are cliffs
There was mother
There's a poker
There was you
Then there was you

There are scenes
There are blues
There are boots
There are shoes
There are Turks
There are fools
They're in lockers
They're in schools
They're in you
Then there was you

Burn my fingers
Burn my toes
Burn my uncle
Burn his books
Burn his shoes
Cook the leather
Put it on me
Does it fit me or you?
It looks tight on you

Burn my fingers
Burn my toes
Burn my uncle
Burn his books
Burn his shoes
Cook the leather
Put it on me
Does it fit me or you?
It looks tight on you

There are tins
There was pork
There are legs
There are sharks
There was John
There are cliffs
There was mother
There's a poker
There was you
Then there was you

There are scenes
There are blues
There are boots
There are shoes
There are Turks
There are fools
They're in lockers
They're in schools
They're in you
Then there was you

Burn my fingers
Burn my toes
Burn my uncle
Burn his books
Burn his shoes
Cook the leather
Put it on me
Does it fit me or you?
It looks tight on you

There are tins
There was pork
There are legs
There are sharks
There was John
There are cliffs
There was mother
There's a poker
There was you
Then there was you

Anys més tard, l'any 1982, el grup anglès Bauhaus, sorgit també, com Joy Division, de les cendres del puny, i amb una sonoritat més gòtica, van fer-ne aquesta versió:
