The author writes:

It would be quite difficult to overstate the important of the British musician and record producer Brian Eno on rock music: from his work with Roxy Music and David Bowie in the 1970s (with a minor detour into inventing ambient music) to his marshalling of U2, Talking Heads and Coldplay through their respective best albums (Achtung Baby, Remain in Light and Viva la Vida...), his influence is phenomenal. In the 1970s he and friend Peter Schmidt created the Oblique Strategies, a deck of cards designed to help creatives (especially musicians) prevent themselves from getting stuck in a rut by suggesting alternative approaches to their problems and encouraging lateral thinking.

This strip was inspired by the card "Take away the elements in order of apparent non-importance".

Original strip: 2014-04-21.
