Options Brian Turner: Playlist from June 8, 2010 Options

Brian Turner's avatar View Brian Turner's profile Options

Order and disorder in a freeform haze of terribly-played guitars, shorted-out electronics, found audio detritus, strange sounds from strange lands all around. Psych-punk-junk, collage, even pop. Lots of in-studio live performances to boot.

Options June 8, 2010: special: Experimental cassette culture w/RYAN MARTIN from DAIS Records/Period Tapes

Listen to this show: | Add or read comments

PhotobucketPhotobucket
Brian is joined today by Ryan Martin of Dais Records/Period Tapes/York Factory Complaint to dig out dusty boxes of found tapes old and new, discussing cassette culture starting in the late '70s post-industrial / synth realm and going through the '80s and '90s up until the deluged tape scene today. Playing avant Fluxus cassettes, artist recordings, tape manipulations, unheard dialogue, drone noise and warped field recordings. Things are going to get weird. Thanks to Period's Lou Calderola for photosnaps! Check out DAIS Records, a label co-run by Ryan, and Period Tapes, run by Ryan and Lou.

Listener comments!

  Tue. 6/8/10 3:02pm βrian:

Ah, that's better.
  Tue. 6/8/10 3:06pm Carmichael:

Aha, Brian! Nice to hear from your musical tastes.
  Tue. 6/8/10 3:08pm βrian:

Aye, it reminds me of the lullabies Mom used to sing.
  Tue. 6/8/10 3:08pm Carmichael:

WMP stopped working for me. I'm back on Flash.
  Tue. 6/8/10 3:09pm βrian:

(Not Brian T, by the way.)
  Tue. 6/8/10 3:15pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

welcome home!
  Tue. 6/8/10 3:17pm BT:

Thanks everbody - had an awesome time in Europe but missed the show. Brought back lotsa kool stuff we'll play next week, but enjoy Ryan's tape treasures, some unreal soundz comin' yr way today.
  Tue. 6/8/10 3:18pm Matt:

I am staring at the photo of tapes in complete and utter envy
  Tue. 6/8/10 3:19pm aaron in chicago:

more photos!
  Tue. 6/8/10 3:27pm BT:

We got a bunch coming. Dig the hand-written Throbbing Gristle tape on deck! 1976 just "Gristle" Gen gave Ryan, with a street address typed on the back...intense.
  Tue. 6/8/10 3:30pm Michael Moore:

Pets or meat?
  Tue. 6/8/10 3:34pm dc pat:

new fave tune: Soft White Fur
  Tue. 6/8/10 3:38pm Carmichael:

Notice the Hoor-Par-Kraat and These Feathers Have Plumes have serial numbers only 4 digits apart. By the same label, or same artist perhaps?
  Tue. 6/8/10 3:39pm BT:

Yep, they are both on Period Tapes, Ryan and Lou Calderola's label.
  Tue. 6/8/10 3:44pm Carmichael:

Thanks, that makes sense. I somehow thought they were all found tapes.
  Tue. 6/8/10 3:45pm don:

how am i supposed to go around my apt doing my little chores when i'm sitting here hypnotised? damn you!!! :^D
  Tue. 6/8/10 3:46pm ab:

me too! I want a cuppa tea but i can't leave my computer... and the kitchen is two floors down,,,
  Tue. 6/8/10 3:47pm BSI:

Wonderful stuff. This was the world I came from, seems like centuries ago. Impossibly limited handmade tape-label stuff..... Still have devious fantasies of re-issuing much of that stuff, the old comps... but no time, no time...
  Tue. 6/8/10 3:57pm dc pat:

wait...I missed THEE Guy Debord?
  Tue. 6/8/10 3:58pm dc pat:

jeeze, that's it, no more ice cream for a month..
  Tue. 6/8/10 4:06pm Bruce:

Great tunes to code C++ by!
  Tue. 6/8/10 4:17pm Lulu:

  Tue. 6/8/10 4:33pm EH:

The whole show has been fantastic so far!
  Tue. 6/8/10 4:36pm BT:

  Tue. 6/8/10 4:42pm Bruce:

  Tue. 6/8/10 4:44pm Flaco:

Soundtrack to the Reagan years.
  Tue. 6/8/10 4:45pm J-Mar:

You got the Bethel comp, by any chance? That was a favorite of mine when I was in high school.
  Tue. 6/8/10 4:58pm BSI:

Illusion of Safety = also playing down here (DC) at this year's Sonic Circuits festival. September....
  Tue. 6/8/10 5:04pm don:

it's just a minor point... i went to Danceteria to see Neubauten but they weren't there for some reason. i don't know if they ever actually played there.
  Tue. 6/8/10 5:09pm BT:

I was thinking that was the joint where they started the fire...wrong perhaps!
  Tue. 6/8/10 5:11pm don:

that was probably in '83. i saw them finally in boston, '85. no fire on the stage!
  Tue. 6/8/10 5:14pm Ryan:

they definitely did play there on February 23, 1984. A bootleg exists of the show. I know there were supposed to have been other shows but thats the only know of a recording of that show.
  Tue. 6/8/10 5:15pm jeff-m:

digging the show, thanks Brian and guests
  Tue. 6/8/10 5:16pm don:

yeah, i was back up at school by then so i never would have known about that.
  Tue. 6/8/10 5:17pm Ryan:

From Pop Matters interview:
"...looking back nostalgically over the band’s New York City performance history (after announcing, sadly, that this tour would probably be their last in America), recalling the long since disappeared venues they had played—the Danceteria, the Palladium—and the trouble they caused with their eccentric stage show."
  Tue. 6/8/10 5:20pm don:

now that is some impressive encyclopedic knowledge :^) in fact as i listen i'm straightening up around here, unearthing tons of tapes myself. just found Noizunzuri, recorded on WFMU 8/27/90. i was looking for that.
  Tue. 6/8/10 5:32pm Flaco:

Thanks for this show, guys. Can you do this more often?
  Tue. 6/8/10 5:50pm lou:

this middle eastern food is so good! yum!
  Tue. 6/8/10 5:51pm paul b:

I knew a guy in college, Mark Robinson, who used to do this sort of thing: Self-made self-illustrated, self-distributed cassettes. I still have one of them, an X Mass cassette I think it says on it. He would number them as official outputs of his label which was called TeenBeat though he rarely made more than a handful of any particular one. Mark also had a band called Unrest.
  Tue. 6/8/10 5:52pm BT:

Coincidentally Paul B: Unrest will be live playing on this very program July 20th!
  Tue. 6/8/10 5:53pm lou:

YES! Unrest!
  Tue. 6/8/10 5:55pm paul b:

Wonderful, WFMU is such a terrific organization! Tell MarK I said hello -- Paul From WMUC...
  Tue. 6/8/10 5:56pm BT:

Maybe we'll do the set remote from the Tube Bar in Jersey City.
  Tue. 6/8/10 5:57pm chris:

what a sick show, Brian. Thank you and thanks to Ryan for being a kick ass dudely-dude as well.
  Tue. 6/8/10 5:59pm don:

awesome, guys. come back again.
  Tue. 6/8/10 5:59pm dw:

awesome stuff, thanks!
  Tue. 6/8/10 6:02pm Ryan:

That was fun, thanks!!!!
  Tue. 6/8/10 10:27pm Tsitso:

Hey there, where did you find a copy of the For Your Ears Only - Jersey Beat Comp Vol. 2? I've been looking for this, and am having a really hard time finding it. Any leads would be really appreciated!
  Wed. 6/9/10 7:20pm Chelimar:

Fabulous!
