Options Brian Turner: Playlist from May 17, 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. 5/17/11 3:03pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

this is about as weird as it gets
  Tue. 5/17/11 3:05pm Mike East:

I agree.
  Tue. 5/17/11 3:08pm Matt from Springfield:

Insurance should be lower, as long as it's the same car you're crashing over and over...
  Tue. 5/17/11 3:12pm Matt from Springfield:

Did you play that track backwards, Brian? Or is that how the track came? Definitely backwards vocals in there.
  Tue. 5/17/11 3:14pm Richard from Venezuela:

Good afternoon Brian.
  Tue. 5/17/11 3:15pm BT:

Hey gang, thanks for joining us.
  Tue. 5/17/11 3:16pm BT:

  Tue. 5/17/11 3:17pm Ryan M.:

Feeling this Peoples Temple
  Tue. 5/17/11 3:19pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

indeed, it feels like something I should be feeling live in a dark basement
  Tue. 5/17/11 3:19pm bill:

These are the worst drums I've ever heard
  Tue. 5/17/11 3:28pm Matt from Springfield:

Group Doueh's from Western Sahara? Wow!
Sahrawi music, Sublime Frequencies never fails to amaze me!
  Tue. 5/17/11 3:29pm Rufus J Squirrel:

What is the name of the Peoples Temple blogspot again, Brian?
  Tue. 5/17/11 3:29pm dom:

You got out of the Bush Brian?
best of luck on new home
  Tue. 5/17/11 3:30pm Handsome Harry:

This is fantastic. The Men know how to rock it.
  Tue. 5/17/11 3:30pm bill:

  Tue. 5/17/11 3:32pm BT:

Thx Domski!
  Tue. 5/17/11 3:33pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

  Tue. 5/17/11 3:34pm BT:

Hey Matt, check the archives for the show, back in June 2009 I went to Paris and broadcast a full live Group Doueh show from Les Instants Chavires, hot mix, sounded killer.
  Tue. 5/17/11 3:39pm J J:

I love Shaved Women! Er, I also don't mind if they aren't.
  Tue. 5/17/11 3:39pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Brian!
I will check that out. A good time for Sublime Freqs--I believe that was around the time I first heard of Omar Souleyman on your show.
  Tue. 5/17/11 3:40pm Matt from Springfield:

Bonzo Dog Band!
This is a slower, early rock & roll version compared to the Keynsham album--you can groove to this one better, though!
  Tue. 5/17/11 3:49pm efd:

That was Clap, not Claw, right?
  Tue. 5/17/11 3:50pm BT:

whoops thx Evan
  Tue. 5/17/11 3:57pm bill:

  Tue. 5/17/11 4:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Ah, the original, Elizabethan arrangement of "Hot for Teacher", transcribed by Sir Francis Bacon.

I guess Return of the Evil Pappy Twin is full of such lute covers?
  Tue. 5/17/11 4:05pm jaycjay:

Very happy to hear The Men here, BT... I've known those guys for a few years (over a couple different bands), and they keep getting better
  Tue. 5/17/11 4:08pm muniak:

Wow! Never thought I'd hear Dawn on WFMU... she was a unique character in Baltimore's avant-world. Sadly, she passed away on the dancefloor at an English country dance back in 2004.

  Tue. 5/17/11 4:10pm Matt from Springfield:

@muniak: Wow, sorry to hear that.
So often WFMU brings the spotlight back on forgotten artists, some from long ago. Just when you learn about something great that you think is new and beginning, you find out they've departed years before.
  Tue. 5/17/11 4:15pm dom:

sonnaofa COLD duck.!
  Tue. 5/17/11 4:17pm Matt from Springfield:

Go Randall! Go Brian Turner!
  Tue. 5/17/11 4:26pm jeff-m:

ooh, thanks for the Bunnymen track. been too long.
  Tue. 5/17/11 4:30pm Matt from Springfield:

I saw Echo too! At the 9:30 in DC!
It was a great show, Ian was "ravaged" over the years but he still sounded like on the original albums. Live they sounded more noise rock (like the Jesus & Mary Chain) rather than alt rock, particularly the Crocodiles portion. Great show, great encores too! ("Nothing Lasts Forever" into "Walk On The Wild Side" medley!)
  Tue. 5/17/11 4:40pm Vicki:

Saw Group Doueh play in London on Friday - right old racket they made :)
A good racket I might add!
See you in Rome... that sounds good, doesn't it, ha ha.
  Tue. 5/17/11 4:41pm BT:

Hey Vicki - yeh.....Ill send you my digits and we'll see ruins and crap!
  Tue. 5/17/11 4:43pm Vicki:

Ruins and Matmos!
  Tue. 5/17/11 4:43pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

keep at least a few of your digits so you can operate the console properly
  Tue. 5/17/11 4:54pm Ryan M.:

Frieder Butzmann has a new record out???? what the eff??
  Tue. 5/17/11 5:01pm BT:

Yeh, ask Morgan about watching their soundcheck in europe....
  Tue. 5/17/11 5:19pm Matt from Springfield:

I was having fun the last 5 minutes with this lush White Hills track--

I was calling a doctor's office, which was closed. No option for a message, just a repeated loop of "The office is currently closed to reach the doctor on call please press 1". Once I became aware it just repeats forever, I STAYED on the line with the phone in my left ear, and plugged in my right earbud for a nice, layered mash up!
  Tue. 5/17/11 5:21pm Matt from Springfield:

All while working with my right hand on the mouse! Thanks Brian and WFMU, for the music we enjoy, as well as the fuel for our own imaginations!
  Tue. 5/17/11 5:38pm Ryan M.:

new Spacek sounds killer...total Sickness style!!
  Tue. 5/17/11 5:43pm Matt from Springfield:

Ha ha ha! I was just calling and doing the same thing again, this time to Sissy Spacek up to La Gritona! Yeah, that was intense--they'll need the doctor on call after that!
  Tue. 5/17/11 5:52pm jeff-m:

enjoyed it. have a good trip man
  Tue. 5/17/11 5:58pm BT:

Thanks Jeff! See yaz in June
  Tue. 5/17/11 5:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Brian, great show, either straight or with the chaser of automatic phone messages thrown in :)

Have a great time in Barcelona! Stream us some good sets!
  Tue. 5/17/11 6:42pm A.T.:

Woah! Sutekh Hexen. I'm waiting for my copy of the 7" to show up in the mail. Glad to see you are supporting them. Really great band, I'm expecting them to blow up anytime.
  Thu. 6/2/11 12:48am Marie:

Great show!
