Options Brian Turner: Playlist from February 1, 2011 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.

let's do this thing.
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:09pm Looms:

Groove it up, Brian!
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:09pm jl:

love this Pigbag song
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:11pm Matt from Springfield:

Pigbag was like a really great high school marching band tune--some school should try that out!
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:11pm joe d:

PIGBAG!!!!! - not just for soccer hooligans
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:14pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I'm enlisting in the fetid corps today after work
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:19pm CheriPi:

Those Fat Worm of Error kids are alright.
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:20pm BSI:

The first two Ash Ra Tempel albums are the bee's knockers.
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:27pm Matt from Springfield:

@BSI: What years did those albums come out? I'm wondering what era ART might be.
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:29pm glenn:

bees are mammals now?
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:30pm BSI:

Matt: BT just confirmed it, Schwingungen was '72. The first one was '71, which proves what I've said all along: 1971 was the best year in records. BEST!
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:30pm BSI:

....hell, in my reality, bees are practically molluscs...
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:31pm Matt from Springfield:

@BT,BSI: Thanks! Krautrock seemed quite progressive in those years.
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:32pm glenn:

unless, of course, you're referring to the knockers at the entrance to the hive?
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:36pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

come on ice storm, hit early so I can go home early
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:38pm Mike East:

...but please let up in time to be sure that the buses are still running at 10pm when I have to leave here...
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:39pm Tom:

And then promptly begin again so that work is canceled tomorrow.
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:40pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

which god commands the weather again?
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:42pm don:

the russians
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:42pm Matt from Springfield:

And then make sure it's powdery snow, so I can shovel it easily and make really good snowballs out of it. (And skiing too, weather-God willing!)
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:42pm dc pat:

and then come down here at to put a nice inch-thick layer on all the roads..
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:43pm Matt from Springfield:

@don: Vladimir Putin's war-bear Snowy is probably the one in control of snow.
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:43pm Dom:

Heavy Metal Simon Says
controls the fun weather
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:43pm dc pat:

..tomorrow morning I meant! TOMORROW MORNING, NOT TONIGHT.!!!..ah jeeeze, I blew it....
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:44pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

this Zeggma band is un-googleable...I love it and I need it...(o/c strikes again)
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:45pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

(I did google the CORRECT spelling, however)
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:46pm piet:

yes, i need it too! great track!
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:47pm Matt from Springfield:

"Cthulhu Youth" -- great name, great sound!
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:49pm Cecile:

Can you play Discipline by God's Gift?
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:52pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

this dude is bummed
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:53pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

ha ha, haven't heard this since like 1983!
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:54pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

my eighth-grade self is knocking on my old-man brain's door
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:54pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: I thought this was Ray Davies when it first came on! "Underground Failure" is w/o a Wiki page; is this typical of them?
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:55pm Matt from Springfield:

Shit, never mind, it finally updated to 'The Kinks"!
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:55pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I think you see the fat worm of your error now
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Fat worms are screwing with my perfectionist sensibilities, indeed!

Though I'd still like to know more about Underground Failure.
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:57pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

yeah, that dude was seriously bummed
  Tue. 2/1/11 3:58pm Eastern philosopher:

Laotzu says, "nature never hurries, yet everything is accomplished"
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:00pm Western philosopher:

Will Rogers says, "Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save"
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:00pm jason:

that O Rex was awesOme
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:01pm Cecile:

Mansion on the Hill is a really good book.
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:01pm Cecile:

Gulcher is MX-80s label.
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:02pm Stinky Chuck:

O. Rex rules!!
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:02pm dc pat:

O.Rex might be my new fave band except I don't like Gimme Shelter...drives me nuts.
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:05pm eschoderanarchie:

pronounciation: Schlaff - lows - UH Nachht
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:06pm Matt from Springfield:

What a musical legacy FMU brings to us, all this European rock from 70s LPs--I'm amazed there's still so many albums that aren't avail in digital form.
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:07pm Mike East:

Yeah - that movie sucked - except for Tina Turner's part.
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:08pm dc pat:

and the guy getting killed, that was amazing..
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:14pm BSI:

  Tue. 2/1/11 4:15pm glenn:

was the guy ike turner?
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:15pm paul:

so excited for this new ECC
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:15pm glenn:

just kidding.
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:16pm Matt from Springfield:

ECC is amazing! If there's "old" ECC I'd like to check that out as well!
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:16pm Steve:

Is that Iggy singing on the Steve Mackay track?
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:16pm paul:

oh is there ever
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:18pm BT:

Steve, yes, Iggy singing a Koonda Holaa/Kamilsky composition.
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:20pm Steve:

Thank you BT
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:22pm Richard from Venezuela:

Hi all.
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:23pm Richard from Venezuela:

Charlie Sheen the new hugh hefner. Nice song by the way.
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:23pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

hi Richard, how are things down there?
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:25pm Richard from Venezuela:

A freaking hot sun. 30 ºC.
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:27pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

oh yeah, it's summer! enjoy
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:27pm Bucking Fastard:

That instrument in Kozhamyk sounds like something on a soundtrack from a Herzog movie.
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:32pm Richard from Venezuela:

WFMU need a last.fm scrobbler for PC, like the FMA.
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:35pm connecticut:

hi this is very surprising most of the songs are really fashion in france too!
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:35pm dw:

Koonda Holaa means 'hairless vagina' in Czech, haha!
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:35pm jason:

hey Richard! I agree but in the meantime, if you happen to have the wfmu iphone app, it's a scrobblin
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:36pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I have no idea what that means
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:37pm FCC:

Mr. Turner, we order you to cease-and-desist from playing this track by Surplus Stock, which advocates murder and hate crimes. Please fill out the "Irony Exemption Form 151A-12", 3rd revision, or cease the track immediately.
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:37pm Serge From France:

bonsoir et merci pour la bonne musique
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:37pm connecticut:

most of guys of the rich families who sell vine are playing in your playlist!!
so rock n'roll!
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:38pm connecticut:

I do like your "terroir" choice, really good vibe!
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:39pm connecticut:

not really revolution by the way..connection
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:39pm connecticut:

keep your power!
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:40pm BT:

Hi Connecticut, say hi to the Magik Markers who are recording inside you today.
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:40pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Ice is nice
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:40pm FCC:

We apologize, Mr. Turner. There was a radio editorial from 1974 advocating nonviolent solutions and cooperation with each other, which was never answered under the-then "Equal Time" regulation--your Surplus Stock will thus be filed as an answer to said editorial. Please keep this notice for your records.
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:41pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: There are certain songs I love for snowy, winter weather--this ambient is perfect. (Cocteau Twins' "Victorialand" is also great--refers to an area of Antarctica, in fact.)
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:42pm Richard from Venezuela:

Jason, an iphone in venezuela is so expensive :(
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:42pm BSI:

do i detect a buddha machine in yonder sonic murk?
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:45pm Richard from Venezuela:

Nevertheless, many thanks for the answer Jason. WFMU is a radio that really maintain care with their listeners. Nice day bro.
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:50pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

time to put ye olde boots on
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:54pm Hosni:

Yes, (sigh) time for ye olde boots...I wait not too long now for my boot heels to be wandering...
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:55pm Ryan M.:

Did Kevin send this Brett Smiley stuff to you today as well? Its the tops!!
  Tue. 2/1/11 4:58pm bill:

Go for an encore, Brett
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:04pm Cecile:

Wow, are they wasted. Brett is a lovely creature, though. Reminds me of Austin Scarlett.
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:07pm bennett4senate:

this Doug Hream Blunt is so good, the title track kills it too
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:07pm Kenzo:

Richard: I've been thinking about last.fm scrobbling for the site...
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:08pm noah:

whoa. that solo.
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:09pm BT:

@Ryan -- nope Larry D sent it. Chicken Biscuit.
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:14pm Cecile:

damn. I have a lot of Giant Sand records.
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:15pm Cecile:

I was just looking at all the Fire reissues.
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:16pm Matt from Springfield:

@Cecile: I'm liking this Giant Sand! Orangey and blue, cool lyric.
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:18pm Richard from Venezuela:

I know Kenzo. Apologies for my lack of patience. Thanks for the answer.
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:19pm Richard from Venezuela:

Chore of Enchantment is a classic. Thanks for the Giant sand song.
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:19pm Cecile:

He started really getting odd around The Love Songs - meandering and whatnot.

I even have a Giant Sandworms single or two.
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:21pm Cecile:

I feel quite old now. Cause I wasn't a wee thing when I bought most of them. But neither was Howe.
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:21pm BT:

I know, "Purge and Slouch 25th Anniversary". That was their acoustic Metal Machine Music!?
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:24pm Cecile:

One of my very favorites was the WFMU backyard BBQ disc.
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:28pm Mike East:

We have gear at City Winery for Giant Sands right now. I hope the Wurlitzer doesn't break. Those things are so unreliable.
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:33pm BT:

Mike, you work for SIR or somethin?
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:35pm Matt from Springfield:

Bleak Race RAWKS!
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:36pm Mike East:

No, they're the competition. I'm at Carroll Music. SIR is national, we're local.
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:38pm Hippies:

That's your cue to exit.
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:39pm Hippy:

(smiling, toking) Say what, man?
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:49pm Matt from Springfield:

Interesting since there was a "Flow my teares" guitar piece by John Dowland from around 1580, but this isn't that, yet still "Classical" guitar.
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:50pm rizz:

nice guitar track
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:51pm Parq:

Hope those elephants are handling their fame well. I expect that, when a group of elephants trashes a hotel room on tour, it stays trashed.
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:54pm link rae:

salut les copains & à la prochaine !
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:54pm rizz:

nice set. helping me thru the working day
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:56pm northguineahills:

The only Group Ongaku I've heard was through ubuweb.
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:58pm Matt from Springfield:

@northguineahills: UbuWeb is great--so you know Group Ongaku is off the beaten path!

Thanks for a fantastic show Brian!
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:58pm BT:

LP was just reished on heavy vinyl.
  Tue. 2/1/11 5:58pm BT:

thx everyone for stayin with it today
  Tue. 2/1/11 6:00pm Stinky Chuck:

Sweet show today.
  Tue. 2/1/11 6:00pm matty:
