[Grief] Gristleism new loop names

Yeah, Brian Jones is really much more of a Psychic TV thing.... although it still could be him.... who knows? But, what I do know, is that the "Brian" is definitely not Brion Gysin (even though Gysin would make more sense), because TG would never thank Brion, then deliberately mispell his name as "Brian". So, I don't know who the "Brian" is that TG is thanking. But, I am pretty certain that whoever it is, it's a Brian who actually spells his name as "B-R-I-A-N", which rules out Gysin. And on the topic of the new loops, I am curious what R and D stand for in "R & D".

I haven't got the gadget, nor really tend to, but in regard to the "brian", it could be Brian Jones (of the Rolling Stones - though that's more of a Psychic TV thing) or, more likely, the also late Brion Gysin, beat poet, writer and man-about-town - for those interested, I suggested the following, which is quite a very good read:

With regard to the names of the new loops on the Gristleism, two of them are pretty quintessential TG-ish names: "R&D" and "Wimpy Bar". And one is obvious given the sound of the loop: "Sex String Theory".

But anyone know the story behind the name "Thank You Brian"? And it's windy sound?

Who is Brian, I wonder? And why are they thanking him?

Just curious.
