ANOTHER GREEN WORLD
Another Green World is a suite of alternative lyrics to Brian Eno’s 1975 studio album of the same name, published by SPAM Press in 2019.
The poems were assembled by erasing the song lyrics except for the first word of each line. This word was then Googled, and its suggested searches used either as a springboard for improvisation or verbatim as a new line. Since 9 out of the 14 songs are instrumental, the majority of the poems have no words.
Part surrealist word game, part datamined remix album, the poems of Another Green World offer room to dream. The text becomes a stage where the reader performs every verse, chorus and epic guitar solo.
