Deftones want to work with Eno

Okay, this isn’t an ‘in the studio’ story as such; more a ‘would like to be in the studio’. Deftones frontman Chino Moreno has said that the band would “love to work with Eno one day”. This is so exciting that it must now happen. I order it to happen. Are you listening, Brian?

Speaking to The Quietus, Moreno said of Eno’s new album ‘Small Craft On A Milk Sea’: “[It] has some of the really beautiful ambient stuff that he’s known for on his earlier records, and I’m a big fan of that, but there’s also some really interesting beats on it. I think for someone who’s been in the game for as long as he has to still be making music and beats that are unorthodox and matching that with music that’s still serene, that makes for a very dynamic record. Of course, we’d love to work with Eno one day”.

Okay, Brian? If you’re still looking for an angle on this, Chino added: “Some of the tracks [from ‘Small Craft’] were rejected from a film score, and I love to put on visuals when I’m making music. I collect old films, from the turn of the century or the 60s or whatever, I’ll put one up on a monitor and start writing, to me that’s one of the most fun ways of making music. One day I hope to utilise that talent in some way and work on making soundtracks”.
