History in the making...Brian Eno watches The Contortions

This photo by Julia Gorton popped up on Facebook yesterday, and I hadn't thought about it for some time. Eno seems to be looking at the camera and thinking, "Hmm...maybe I should put together a compilation called No New York..." And who knows...Perhaps this was snapped the evening that idea was born?

Gorton, who I don't know much about, was around the No Wave scene quite a bit as evidenced by the use of her photos in books such as No Wave: Post-Punk. Underground. New York. 1976-1980 and No Wave, and quite a few record sleeves. Unfortunately she doesn't seem to have a website of her work at this time.
