When the David Byrne/Brian Eno collaboration My Life in the Bush of Ghosts was first released in 1981, Rolling Stone called it ""an undeniably awesome feat of tape editing and rhythmic ingenuity."" It was widely considered a watershed record for future genres from world music to electronica, and almost 25 years later, the influence of My Life in the Bush of Ghosts is evident in music ranging from The Bomb Squad's productions for Public Enemy to Moby, Kruder and Dorfmeister, and Goldie. Nonesuch Records reissued the album-remixed, remastered, and with 7 bonus tracks in March.


In keeping with the original spirit of the album, and in line with Creative Commons licenses, all the multitracks from two of the songs on the album are available for download at http://www.bush-of-ghosts.com. Users can remix the tracks and upload to the site, listen & rate others remixes and upload videos they have made themselves. The site also features archival press from the original album release, essays, photos from the original sessions, polaroids taken by David Byrne and a video made by Bruce Conner for the song Mea Culpa which is also included on the CD itself.


My Life in the Bush of Ghosts is inspired by Byrne's and Eno's shared love of African pop, and their particular fascination with the music of 1970s West Africa. In addition to playing by Byrne and Eno, the album incorporates a variety of ""found"" voices: radio talk-show hosts, Lebanese mountain singers, preachers, exorcism ceremonies, Muslim chanting, and Egyptian pop, among others. My Life in the Bush of Ghosts also includes the contributions of eleven other musicians, including Bill Laswell, Tim Wright, David van Tieghem, and the Talking Heads' Chris Frantz.

Hi guys. Great to see you here!

I'm itching to hear 'Regiment' but the song won't play when I click it. Perhaps the upload got corrupted?
