On February 26, 1974 Brian Eno and his backing band, The Winkies, recorded a tight, rocking Peel Session that would air a week later on BBC1. The songs include " The Paw Paw Negro's Blowtorch", "Baby's On Fire/ I'll Come Running" and a cover of "Fever". "I'll Come Running" would appear on Eno's 1975 album Another Green World.
Eno's career as a hard partying front man lasted just five gigs but it was probably sweet. He apparently took part in as many energetic sexual marathons with groupies as his body could stand. After being hospitalized with a collapsed lung, Eno happily went back to twisting knobs in the studio.
The Winkies debut album came out in 1975. Eno contributed to one of the tracks. The album failed to sell and the Winkies disbanded.
