Brian Eno is usually credited with the claim that everyone who originally bought a Velvet Underground album subsequently formed a band. It’s no less valid to suggest that many of those involved in electronic music might not have been but for “No Pussyfooting” and “Evening Star”. Indeed few contemporary albums can claim as much lasting influence as “No Pussyfooting” by Fripp & Eno. It’s safe to say that for the vast majority of buyers at the time of its initial release in 1973, this was their first exposure to the small world of electronic music. It’s equally safe to say it wasn’t their last. The equipment used was, by modern standards, primitive. The ideas expressed were, by any standards, enormous. Many went on to have careers based on the possibilities suggested by the album. Fripp & Eno – to their eternal credit – were too busy working as musicians to ever ‘milk it’ in that sense. One further full album, “Evening Star”, was issued in 1975. There were occasional collaborations, but no further recordings under the Fripp & Eno banner until the emergence of “The Equatorial Stars” in late 2004 as a limited edition release via the artists’ websites, followed by a full release in 2005 on CD.
