>>Brian Eno did live treatments on Phil Manzanera's guitar using tape. Have a look at this - the solo starts after 4 minutes. Is there some use of looping? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3D2JSBxjzI no. the two revox a77s were always a part of eno's stage rig during his tenure with roxy, but they were used for tape-echo & are clearly not in the frippertronics configuration here. he appears to be (& it sounds like he is) manipulating a remote varispeed on one of them at the start of manzanera's extemporisation; the early model of a77 was a tricky machine to add varispeed to, & revox later changed the capstan servo to a version with a 555 timer chip which made this easier. but I digress. later on in the piece, baldy brian processes the guitar through the VCS3. odd performance though- I thought I'd seen all the beat club recordings, but this one is new to me. brian ferry would normally have played the keyboard part, here left to andy mackay by the looks of things, so that BF can (unusually) strum a strat. d.
