919. R.A.F.

Brian Eno and friends deliver a nifty bit of funked up coolness, with samples, from 1977. The friends being Snatch the best two woman punk band you’ve probably never heard of, Brian Eno being, as always, way ahead of his time (sampling wouldn’t really be a thing for better a decade). RAF first showed up as a b-side to Eno’s King’s Lead Hat single, and later on First Edition, a nifty little 10-inch album that was packed full of precisely the kind of modern music that caused arguments. And yes, some of those samples come from a Baader Meinhof ransom message that was delivered via public telephone call. Those were the days.
