Did You Know That Brian Eno's Real Name Is Absurdly Long?

Brian Eno’s endless composition isn’t the only thing that goes on forever.

We’re not sure how this one slipped by us for all these years, but Brian Eno’s full name is Brian Peter George St John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno. We don’t know the exact reason for this, but we assume it’s some kind of French thing. We discovered the length of the producer’s name while doing a little research for a post about his four forthcoming deluxe vinyl reissues: Here Come The Warm JetsTaking Tiger Mountain (By Strategy)Another Green World and Before And After Science have all been specially remastered at half-speed for 45RPM playback.

The albums will be available on August 4. This is a long time to wait, but I guess we should expect that from someone with a damn near impossible to remember name like Brian Peter George St John le Baptiste de la Salle Eno. Pre-order your copy here.
