Brian Eno to appear on The Colbert Report tomorrow, then disappear from there and reappear at Long John Silver's for a lonely fish plank dinner

Hey, so you know how Brian Eno’s leftovers EP with poet Rick Holland, Panic of Looking came out this week? Oh, wait, what’s that? You didn’t know that because we haven’t reviewed it yet, and you get 100% of your arts & entertainment news and opinions from Tiny Mix Tapes? Good answer. As a matter of fact, I didn’t know that either. And my personal opinion is that Drums Between the Bells, the album that this EP’s tracks are left over from, was only totally a “three-and-a-half-red-circles kind of album” anyway. It’s kinda my own unique aesthetic grading system.

Well, turns out that the only reason TMT hasn’t broken the news about whether the EP is bad-good or great-good just yet is because Eno personally asked us not to, citing the fact that he is currently trying to lay low from this “creepy anglophile Stephen Colbert” who just can’t stop having British musicians on his Comedy Central show The Colbert Report so that he can harass them (he recently had both Coldplay and Radiohead on, and I’m told he expanded the Radiohead show to a full hour so he could adequately make fun of Thom’s current Garth Algar haircut). Needless to say, if Colbert found out about this new EP of Eno and Holland’s, he’d probably insist on having him on the show, oh, say, tomorrow, November 10, at 11:30 PM EST/10:30 PM CST. Again, that’s tomorrow, November 10, at 11:30 PM EST/10:30 PM CST. But don’t worry, Mr. Eno, we’ll do our part to make sure that you’re not discovered and put on The Colbert Report tomorrow, November 10, at 11:30 PM EST/10:30 PM CST.
