EnoPaul Morley recently spoke to Brian Eno for a BBC arena documentary in which Eno proved that he is always good for a controversial and catchy phrase about the music industry:

The record age was just a blip. It was a bit like if you had a source of whale blubber in the 1840s and it could be used as fuel. Before gas came along, if you traded in whale blubber, you were the richest man on Earth. Then gas came along and you’d be stuck with your whale blubber. Sorry mate – history’s moving along. Recorded music equals whale blubber. Eventually, something else will replace it.

The whole interview is published on the Guardian’s site.
