Eno & The Winkies – Peel Session 1974

Eno & The Winkies – Peel Session 1974

The Winkies caught the attention of Brian Eno while he was finishing his debut solo album, Here Come the Warm Jets. Eno took The Winkies as his backing band in February 1974, on his first and only solo tour. The outing ended after the sixth date of the schedule in Guilford, after which Eno was rushed to the hospital suffering from a collapsed lung. In March 1974 the John Peel BBC radioshow broadcast four songs from the 19 February 1974 performance – “The Paw Paw Negro Blowtorch”, a medley of “Totalled” plus “Baby’s on Fire” and a cover version of “Fever“. –Wikipedia
