Options Brian Turner: Playlist from April 12, 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.

Mike Watt & the Missingmen  Live in the WFMU Studio   Options engineered by Ruaraidh Sanachan    Mike Watt remains an unstoppable force of nature. Having been the bass anchor in the legendary Minutemen, fIREHOSE, Iggy and the Stooges, and countless other projects and collaborations, he's faced middle age head-on with a tour of 51 dates in 52 days and a newly-released third full-on "opera" called Hyphenated Man. The album and live set is a nod to the classic Minutemen song approach, written on D. Boon's Telecaster itself: 30 short blasts of songs strung together as a whole reflect on Watt's past, present and future and are also based on individual characters from Hieronymus Bosch paintings. Watt's Missingmen trio assemble on Brian's show today and feature Tom Watson on guitar and Raul Morales on drums, they're going to perform the album in its entirety live in the WFMU studios! www.hootpage.com for more info.    2:03:11 ()

Listener comments!

  Tue. 4/12/11 3:06pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

always a great way to start the show--DP!
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:06pm Cheri Pi:

Deep Purple started out so deep
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:07pm Tom:

Ha. The DP song the Fall covers.
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:08pm Matt from Springfield:

'70 was a GOOD year for live DP!
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:08pm minnesota jeff:

  Tue. 4/12/11 3:09pm Mike East:

  Tue. 4/12/11 3:09pm Parq:

Hell, *I* was a kid in 7/70. I was in camp!
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:09pm BSI:

oh sweet pee-pee jeezus....
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:10pm Tom:

I was the future in 7/70.
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:11pm Cecile:

I was in my last year of single digits in 70
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:13pm Cheri Pi:

I was a twinkle in my daddy's eye in 1970.
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:14pm slugluv1313:

OMG!!!!!!!!! THE KELLY FAMILY!!!!!!!!!!! just gotta wonder what kind of impact this had on his future/adult life, having this child sing it out to the WHOLE FRIGGIN' WORLD about his bet-wetting *issues*
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:14pm BSI:

By 7/70, I was struggling with that bladder-control thing but was making great progress, I assure you.
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:15pm Parq:

Tom, Cheri, my point exactly. By the way, I love that Shirley Collins tune.
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:26pm slugluv1313:

WOW i remember The People Tree! saw them at WigStock many many MANY years ago, when WigStock was still in Tompkins Square Park . . . (what is the name of that film, Brian?)
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:30pm ?:

wasnt it just Wigstock?
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:30pm Cecile:

No, the other movie - slug, I think it was Blank City
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:34pm slugluv1313:

thanks Cecile!
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:37pm slugluv1313:

for your viewing *pleasure*: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PwzBuN7jfjw
(hhmmm, finale at next year's Marathon? complete with those rockin' outfits and Station Manager Ken singing lead???)
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:39pm Matt from Springfield:

Wonderful Sourdeline! After listening to Julie's show in Archive, this makes a lot of French from WFMU today!
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:40pm Matt from Springfield:

Is this Sourdeline new, or a new re-issue? It sounds like early 70s folk.
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:40pm Looms:

Hello Brian and all!
Strange coincidence: the first thing i ever heard from Mike Watt was his cover of The 15th on WHORE (the amazing tribute to Wire from 1996)
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:46pm BT:

new reissue.
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:46pm Cecile:

Really? That's a nice place to discover him. I know I saw the Minutemen four times back in the day. Somewhere I have a setlist from 1985
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Brian.
I also like this harp version of Misirlou--very different than the fast surf-guitar arrangement everyone knows.
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:54pm Looms:

@Cecile: it is for sure! This track turned one of my childhood's friend into a Mike Watt/Minutemen fan. He's been living in the UK for 16 years now so it was easy for him to dig into MW's work and spread the virus.
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:56pm Mike:

April 16th is a Saturday, we're all in deep shit apparently
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:56pm dc pat fc:

jeeze Cecile, four freakin times? I missed 'em.
  Tue. 4/12/11 3:58pm Cecile:

Yup. And we got to see Laughing Hyenas open for em once. And Die Kreuzen get booed another time. They still played their whole set, though. They were great as were the minutemen.
  Tue. 4/12/11 4:00pm RBL:

wait so what was that last wonderful thing before the break, from the cassette? it worked really well on me
  Tue. 4/12/11 4:04pm Cheri Pi:

I was at this show in the catskills andit was ca-ra-zee!
  Tue. 4/12/11 4:08pm Roady:

GO IGGY! Sounding great!!!
  Tue. 4/12/11 4:10pm jl:

This Ice Age is cool.
  Tue. 4/12/11 4:12pm Meliss:

Dug the Ice Age!
  Tue. 4/12/11 4:12pm Cheri Pi:

I have to get that Ice Age album
  Tue. 4/12/11 4:17pm Ike:

@Mike@3:56, why deep shit on Saturday? Is some ancient god from before the dawn of time scheduled to rise up out of the muck and pan-fry our intestines in garlic oil with a balsamic reduction and the juicy but non-corporeal baked psychic innards of 10,000,000 perished ghost souls? With salsa?
  Tue. 4/12/11 4:18pm Ike:

Anyway, I'm loving the Unknown.
  Tue. 4/12/11 4:20pm Ryan M.:

Not to plug my own stuff, but you can still get the limited edition LP of Iceage on the Dais site..

Second pressing is almost sold out yet again, but still have a few left up for grabs.
  Tue. 4/12/11 4:23pm Mike:

The dude on the cassette that was played said so!
  Tue. 4/12/11 4:24pm Matt from Springfield:

@Ike: Mmm, tasty. "The Necronomicon Chef", Saturday afternoons on PBS.
  Tue. 4/12/11 4:27pm Ike:

@Mike: Oh. I wasn't paying enough attention to the vocals. I thought you just had a random generic apocalypse prediction, and I figured I'd one-up you. My bad.
  Tue. 4/12/11 4:31pm Ryan M.:

I need that record of machinery recordings!!
  Tue. 4/12/11 4:34pm J J:

Love watching the drummer from Liturgy. I'd be so damn tired after one song.
  Tue. 4/12/11 4:36pm mick:

fuck yeeeeeeeeesssss !!!
  Tue. 4/12/11 4:36pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

my hands would pop off
  Tue. 4/12/11 4:37pm Mike:

Whoa, this Liturgy song is fantastic.
  Tue. 4/12/11 4:37pm BSI:

Tried air-drumming. Hands popped off.
Getting better at typing with bloody wrist stumpy things.
  Tue. 4/12/11 4:38pm Cecile:

post of the day!
  Tue. 4/12/11 4:39pm Meliss:

Tire Fire: sick and ugly. LOVE IT.
  Tue. 4/12/11 4:42pm Parq:

Agree with Meliss as to Tire Fire -- quite a peppy tune!
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:00pm Looms:

@BT and others: The Wire track brought back what used to be a "music addicts group questionning" here (in France): why didn't we hear of Mike Watt before the WHORE comp while it was quite easy to get his records in the UK and in Germany?
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:01pm schizflow:

that was cool
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:06pm Cecile:

I don't know if the Minutemen toured France. I know the NME were huge supporters of them in Britain.
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:07pm adamp:

very nice
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:09pm BC:

i caught the opera that day at maxwell's.. and thenext at mercury lounge.. shoulda gone to philly too, but this is real nice to have watt.. from my favorite band, on my favorite station.
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:13pm Bad Ronald:

This is lovely, thanks BT!
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:13pm Mike East:

Unbelievable how much this dude still rocks.
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:15pm jung oldman:

i'm really kicking myself since i missed them in toronto, glad to hear this
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:23pm BodegaMan:

This is bananas. Thanks for the treat.
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:26pm Andy:

Perfect timing!!! Seeing Watt & the Missingmen tonight. Thanks
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:29pm Looms:

@Cecile: not only NME. As far as i remember, i got a letter from Marc a week or so after he went back to Exeter with his WHORE copy, featuring a Minutemen/Watt tape and a selection of articles from The Wire (the magazine). Obviously the guy was "important".
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:36pm Cecile:

That he is. I don't know why he was unknown in France - maybe the music didn't catch the ears of the right tastemakers at the right rime...
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:37pm Looms:

I guess you're right, unfortunately.
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:38pm paul b:

Ah BT I see you're actually catching Mike Watts F*B*o*m*b*s* in time now. America's airwaves salute you. Saw the Minutemen at the 9:30 club DC (a few yrs ago now). Good show.
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:40pm Marmalade kitty:

Thanks for the super show!
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:41pm Matt from Springfield:

Still here, still enjoying this!
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:43pm Parq:

This just gets better and better.
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:45pm Brian Cody:

brilliant. layered, dynamic, intense.. beautiful.
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:45pm Cecile:

Hey, the French and British had to sell Dino Jr and Sonic Youth back to some people in the US...
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:49pm daniel:

This is absolutely incredible. Mike Watt today sounds better than ever!
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:50pm Looms:

Did we?
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:50pm Looms:

And yes, this live set is excellent.
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:52pm Parq:

'Cile, your post got me sidetracked into reading about the old saw about jerry Lewis and the French. Another ten minutes of office time down the drain ...
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:53pm Cecile:

Looms: yup!
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:54pm Looms:

  Tue. 4/12/11 5:56pm Nordstrom:

Thanks for having Mike and the boys play, Brian! I saw them in Montreal last week- strongest I've seen Watt since fIREHOSE days! Super-tight and intense... the crowd loved it, we were all blown away! Keep goin', Watt!
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:57pm Cecile:

Fabulous Ferndale!
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:57pm Marmalade kitty:

  Tue. 4/12/11 5:59pm link rae:

salut les gars & à la prochaine !
  Tue. 4/12/11 5:59pm Bad Ronald:
