Brian Eno’s talents as a music producer and artist are well known, but what about his genius for self promotion? Eno is a salesman and branding expert par excellence. Some of his techniques are: flattery of his audience that they too are artists, part of an elite “obscure” club that “gets it.” He borrows techniques from Marshall McLuhan, taking banal stuff such as Muzak and Cybernetics and inflating them to utterly cosmic proportions. Also: how to pick up chicks with Brian Eno! THE NAB VS. DEEP PURPLE On December 6, 1971, author Vladimir Nabokov and the Heavy Metal band Deep Purple stayed in the same hotel in Switzerland after the "Smoke On The Water" incident. This potential clash of snobbery vs. Dionysus is told in a hilarious, speculative diary by Mark Linzee Rudolph, who channels Nabokov in a literary seance.
