Nerve Net Digest

Begun as, and still primarily, a mailing list for fans of Brian Eno's music, Nerve Net Digest has expanded a lot in the last year or so. The list works under the assumption that if you like Eno's work, there is a whole pile of other interesting, unusual and experimental musicians whose work will also like. List members from all over the world send in pointers to sites, suggestions of new CDs and show dates they think Eno fans will enjoy. And there are Eno's numerous collaborators/co-conspirators who pop up in the list. Nerve Net Digest often publishes full-length interviews with such unusual players as composer/trumpeter Jon Hassell, Can's Holger Czukay and U2 producer and musician Daniel Lanois. Eno's work, however, is still the primary focus of Nerve Net. Members love pointing each other to Eno's more obscure, tangential and unknown work. His visual art installations are a perpetual discussion, for instance, as is his Oblique Strategy card set. In fact, each issue of the Nerve Net Digest ends with a different Oblique Strategy--a thought or aphorism that Eno and painter Peter Schmidt came up to help them past work blocks. A recent Digest ended on the thought, "Not making a wall but making a brick." -R.K.
