I’ve always been a bit of a fan of Oblique Strategies — the set of cards created by Brian Eno and Peter Schmidt in the 1970s to help when you’re creatively stuck. I’d never really thought about where they came from though so it was great to listen to Simon Armitage’s Radio 4 programme exploring where they came from and what people have used them for. Just a shame that he didn’t manage to get to speak to Brian as well.
