Options Brian Turner: Playlist from February 8, 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.

Listener comments!

  Tue. 2/8/11 3:04pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

  Tue. 2/8/11 3:04pm bill:

Tuesday afternoon - wasn't that a Moody Blues song?
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:04pm jljl:

Stormtrooper didn't sound metal, new wave of british or otherwise, to me.
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:04pm SiHV:

  Tue. 2/8/11 3:09pm Matt from Springfield:

I approach Negative Approach positively.
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:09pm Swami:

Oh man, flashback time! Thanks Brian! Negative Approach always sounded a cut above the other hc bands of the era, imho
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:10pm jljl:

I think there's a reason these tapes were kept in the basement tho.
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:10pm Matt from Springfield:

@jljl: That's because it was heavy, I suppose that comp is New OR Wave OR Of OR British OR Heavy OR Metal.
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:13pm jljl:

i was talking about NA. Would like to get my hands on that NWOBHM comp tho. Raven is in the area this weekend, should try to go.
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:13pm BT:

have to say the NWOBHM comp aint so hot, that song excepted
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:14pm jljl:

shoot. i've gotten lots of comps lately so I'm probably all set. I think Metalblade put out a good one about 10 years ago I should track down.
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:21pm CheriPi:

That;s too bad BT-I guess it's back to obscurity then for most of those NWOBHM bands :(
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:24pm northguineahills:

the Adrian Democ is quite nice.
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:25pm Matt from Springfield:

Great Adrian Democ --is this NEW classical? A soundtrack?
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:32pm jljl:

i know this is a weird time to ask this with the ethereal stuff playing, but does anyone here like 70s glam?
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:34pm Matt from Springfield:

70s Glam, 70s Glitter, yeah, I like those. Not heavily but I enjoy especially the British stuff of that era. Brian's played some on occasion.

Ethereal stuff I like a lot though!
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:35pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Bowie is about as glam as I go
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:36pm Matt from Springfield:

Check out these comps: "Glitter From The Litter Bin", "Glitterbest", and "The Roots of Punk", but I think the last one was only an NME music sampler disc.
@DCE: How bout Bowie-Mott collabs?
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:36pm jljl:

is it bad form to promote a special my pal and I are doing at WMBR Wed. and Thurs.? Should be interesting and we're digging fairly deep. Got Glitterbest on the lisit along with Velvet Tinmine and more.
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:37pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

bad form or not, you just did it
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:38pm Mike East:

I just made a mixtape with Bowie's covers of White Light/White Heat and Let's Spend the Night Together. Ziggy Stardust Soundtrack is a great double LP.
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:39pm Matt from Springfield:

I may take a listen--WMBR, are you an MIT student?
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:40pm jljl:

not that smart (or young), it's community radio. if you guys are in the mood:

  Tue. 2/8/11 3:42pm jljl:

Dead Corp Eyes: now the full promo has been done. Back to Brian's show, I have to admit I wait for the louder stuff.
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:48pm BT:

hey now
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:49pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

don't dream it's over
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:50pm Cecile:

Hey, do you have Downer Rock Apocalypse on ya, Brian? That always lifts the spirits.
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:50pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

boy did I hate that song but it stuck in my brain all these years.
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:54pm Swami:

Brian's show is one I make every effort to hear live. Quiet, loud, droney, melodic etc. Always interesting!
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:55pm BSI:

Quiet, loud, droney, melodic...... just like life, it would seem...
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:55pm CheriPi:

Oh wow!
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:55pm Matt from Springfield:

@Swami, BSI: That's why I love it, in a good show you shouldn't know what to expect next!

Hooray, nice Kevin Ayers, gotta get that album!
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Yeah, like this..."bleu"grass New Order??!
  Tue. 2/8/11 3:57pm Joe D:

  Tue. 2/8/11 4:01pm Cecile:

you should play some Telephoned. I like their tweaks of hip-hop songs.
  Tue. 2/8/11 4:01pm jljl:

someone should do a long tainted love set
  Tue. 2/8/11 4:04pm Andrew:

i'm so happy my 'field day' happened to fall on Tuesday this week.. hello, for the first time, from chicago!!
  Tue. 2/8/11 4:04pm jason:

Cecile that's awesome that you're a Telephoned fan! Sammy Bananas!
  Tue. 2/8/11 4:08pm Cecile:

I was writing a "coming soon" item for them and Chromeo, but Telephoned had to cancel. I ended up a big fan after listening to their stuff for that piece.
  Tue. 2/8/11 4:08pm Matt from Springfield:

Hello, for the first time, to Andrew!

@Cecile: Tweaked hip-hop...ever hear of "chopped and screwed" from Houston? DJ Screw's slowed down hip hop tracks were apparently very influential, heading into chillwave and other dragged music to date.
  Tue. 2/8/11 4:08pm Matt from Springfield:

I heard of it not too long ago but haven't yet heard any...have you, or perhaps Brian, heard any?
  Tue. 2/8/11 4:10pm serge:

Merci pour Erik M
  Tue. 2/8/11 4:11pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Cecile, what medium did Telephoned use to communicate their cancellation notice?
  Tue. 2/8/11 4:11pm Cecile:

Yes, Matt. I'm not a huge expert but I've heard some. I have the UGK chopped and screwed disc. It's pretty cool. Very slow and warped. There's some great sound effects over top, too.
  Tue. 2/8/11 4:12pm Cecile:

A big black marker X on the gig schedule where their name was. I was bummed.
  Tue. 2/8/11 4:14pm Godard:

This could easily pass as a Godard film
  Tue. 2/8/11 4:14pm Matt from Springfield:

@Cecile: Thanks! Sounds like a good lead.
  Tue. 2/8/11 4:16pm Cecile:

in the early 00's they used to issue some albums straight AND with a C&S version. My UGK disc is just a best of with effects...
  Tue. 2/8/11 4:18pm Matt from Springfield:

Cecile, comments board Resident Expert!
  Tue. 2/8/11 4:19pm Carmichael:

Hi Brian and people. Thanks for the Kevin Ayers back there. Good memories.
  Tue. 2/8/11 4:25pm Cecile:

Nah, I'm just old.
  Tue. 2/8/11 4:25pm yair Yona:

Good to hear you again Brian
  Tue. 2/8/11 4:25pm yair Yona:

Good to hear you again Brian
  Tue. 2/8/11 4:27pm BT:

Yair, nice to see you man! You going to Barca again this year?
  Tue. 2/8/11 4:39pm Matt from Springfield:

Whoa, didn't realize someone covered George Harrison's Beatle composition "The Inner Light"!
  Tue. 2/8/11 4:40pm Lou:

whatever happened to the Kelley Stoltz Porcupine record?
  Tue. 2/8/11 4:47pm Tyrone:

Katharina Tunicata is a member of The Sea Donkeys not monkeys
the monkees were a hit tv show featuring mike nesmith on liquid paper
  Tue. 2/8/11 4:47pm BT:

Kelley said he was skipping it.
  Tue. 2/8/11 4:48pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

really liking Red Asphalt!
  Tue. 2/8/11 5:00pm Matt from Springfield:

@BT: Really interesting 7SD, I liked it!
That's another idea for 7SD--"documentaries" with the other staff and radio techs of WFMU on how a radio station is run, while Andy tries to ask questions, participate, and otherwise try to fill the hour!
  Tue. 2/8/11 5:00pm Godard:

From black metal to this, I love it!
  Tue. 2/8/11 5:21pm bill:

Who's Zu teaming with here?
  Tue. 2/8/11 5:22pm BT:

James Plotkin remix
  Tue. 2/8/11 5:23pm bill:

  Tue. 2/8/11 5:30pm Matty:

Are there any songs about John C Reilly?
  Tue. 2/8/11 5:31pm Matt from Springfield:

An early g'bye to you all!
Thanks Brian for another "Quiet, loud, droney, melodic etc. Always interesting!" fun set!
  Tue. 2/8/11 5:34pm glenn:

cecile's not THAT old. compared to me, anyhoo.
  Tue. 2/8/11 5:39pm BSI:

get offa my lawn!
you kids with your hoola-hoops and your theremins...
  Tue. 2/8/11 5:39pm Cosmic:

  Tue. 2/8/11 5:40pm donovan:

Love that kraftwerk song. They sounded best when they played guitars.
  Tue. 2/8/11 5:43pm BSI:

Good that the old Sky catalog is getting some re-press luv...
  Tue. 2/8/11 5:45pm charles powne:

Brian, the stuff Sleazy did as "Threshold Houseboys Choir" is worth a listen, too. Do you have any of it in the library there?
  Tue. 2/8/11 5:46pm BT:

I dont think so Charles....have to dig around online for that
  Tue. 2/8/11 5:49pm BSI:

the Threshold Houseboys Choir stuff is heartbreakingly brilliant.
  Tue. 2/8/11 5:53pm link_rae:

merci brian, salut les gars & à la prochaine !
  Tue. 2/8/11 5:54pm BT:

Thx everybody.
  Tue. 2/8/11 5:55pm Mike East:

no no no...Thank YOU!
  Tue. 2/8/11 5:56pm glenn:

birds of fire twice in two days. whoulda thunk it?
  Tue. 2/8/11 5:56pm Parq:

Whoah - Birds of Fire twice in as many days. God, did I love this album when it came out.
  Wed. 2/9/11 1:02pm Yair Yona:

Brian, at first I didn't plan on going, but then I saw the list. that mighty list. I got no clue how I can avoid that...gonna sell my dog and get my tickets!
