Get your hands on Brian Eno's My Squelchy Life

Brian Eno has announced that he will be unveiling what is commonly seen as his most sought after unreleased work next month.

On December 1st, Eno will release My Squelchy Life as part of an expanded edition of Nerve Net, his 1992 album that fused avant guarde guitar music with syncopated rhythms and jazz-style freak outs.

Despite Eno’s reputation for exploring the unknown, his label at the time All Saints deemed My Squelchy Life to be too radical to carry the commercial viability it wanted, and the album was shelved.

As well as the Nerve Net release, Eno will also be offering fans expanded editions of three of his other works. The Shutov Assembly, The Drop and Neroli will also get the same treatment, presenting the chance to hear a host of demos, unreleased tracks and alternate mixes that were part of the great producer’s labour during the 90s.

All this comes off the back of a busy year for Eno, with two collaborations with Underworld’s Karl Hyde, as well as the curation of a boxset of Fela Kuti reissues, which was unveiled over the summer.

All four of the upcoming Eno reissues, including Nerve Net featuring the entirety of My Squelchy Life will be available via Warp and All Saints on December 1st.
