David Byrne / Brian Eno 'My Life in the Bush of Ghosts' (demos)
Published Jun 12, 2012Brian Eno and David Byrne's 1981 collaboration My Life in the Bush of Ghosts has been heralded for its avant garde melding of ambient sounds, hip-hop-style sampling and global-minded pop rhythms. Fans of the album are about to experience the set like they never have before, though, as demo versions of the album's tracks have just surfaced.
My Wall of Tapes [via FACT] has uploaded the album as two side-long files, with the blog writer explaining that he obtained the pre-release blank cassette while staying at Byrne's New York home in 1981. Aside from the alternate track order, the recording features passages of the Quran read by Byrne that were removed from the finished product.
