Options Brian Turner: Playlist from September 20, 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.

Oxbow  Live in the WFMU Studio   Options Engineered by Ernie Indradat    Oxbow are not easy listening fare: half of this legendary Bay Area combo played a somewhat dark acoustic session on Brian's show in 2004 that contained one of the most harrowing, bareboned, messed-up Beatles covers in memory. Live, singer/author/1st place divisional 2003 California Submission Fighting champion Eugene Robinson has pretty much terrorized (and sometimes physically administered beatdowns to) club audiences who attempt to ratchet up the volatility factor of Oxbow shows, which are equal parts jazzed-out metalcore, deconstructed swamp-blues, and weird, laced-with-tension postrock. They're a band of great scope; Eugene's been Lee Hazlewood to both Marianne Faithfull's and Lydia Lunch's Nancy Sinatra, and their latest LP Songs For the French (Hydra Head) showcases both their live performance side and improvisational abilities. The lineup: Eugene Robinson (vocal), Niko Wenner (guitar), Greg Davis (drums/[ercussion), Dan Adams (cello). Songs today: 1000 / Down a Stair Backward / She's a Find / A Winner Every Time / Sunday (interview) /The Geometry of Business. More info at the band's site.    2:15:13 ()

The way the Chameleons guy exclaims "b(r)ump-a-bump-bum" is gold.
  Tue. 9/20/11 3:29pm Roky Erickson:

  Tue. 9/20/11 3:30pm BT:

Not sure on that one.... there's a NZ band Trash too no relation...
  Tue. 9/20/11 3:35pm Wendy del Formaggio:

I really liked that Trash song. And I'm also thoroughly enjoying this "Drop Out" song. Hmm, maybe I will. I could use a break.

  Tue. 9/20/11 3:42pm das:

With a name like shit dogs I'd like them even if they sounded like shit dogs.

Love that Shit Dogs... new to these ears.
  Tue. 9/20/11 3:47pm Matt from Springfield:

Yeah Laurice! In fact I think Brian's played them before, this sounds familiar!
  Tue. 9/20/11 3:48pm Mike East:

I really needed the Laurice right now.
Thanks, bt.
  Tue. 9/20/11 3:48pm hubba:

  Tue. 9/20/11 3:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Ha ha, the Redneck Ramones! I missed them but I definitely remember them being played here. I'll go back to the Archives and listen with "Redneck Ramones" in mind.
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:00pm Carmichael:

Hi Brian, hi everyone.
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:02pm hubba:

Hey Carmichael
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:03pm hubba:

This Ongaku 70 comp is out of control
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:03pm Carmichael:

Yo Hub. Rubi-Tuesday ...
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:05pm Matt from Springfield:

@Carmichael: It's "Rabi", so I'd think that would make this Jews-day...
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:05pm hubba:

Nice! I'm going to be out toward Hoppy this evening... i don't know if they even compare, different vibes.
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:09pm Carmichael:

Matt, I was speaking code for "$2.50 microbrew pints at our favorite local brewery all day today."
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:09pm dc pat:

Lovely Little Girls are crazy.
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:10pm Carmichael:

@Hubba: tell Tyson hello for me, although you don't know my real name. HA!
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:12pm hubba:

Man... I did not know that Tuesdays could be that magical...
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:13pm Carmichael:

BT gets a gold star today for band names!
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:14pm Kaspar:

some people think the Trash song is a fake put on the comp as a joke by the guys who did those comps. I can see it...
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:14pm dc pat:

Waterly Love = greatest group on earth.
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:14pm hubba:

I've known him for quite some time... he used to have roommates, one of which was a buyer at record store who hipped me to the wonderful world of dub and free jazz... I'll tell him Carmichael said "hello." What if he outs you?
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:14pm Matt from Springfield:

@Carm: That's right, you've mentioned that before! One of these days...I'm going out there to see if you'll really buy a beer for anyone who shouts "Brian Turner on WFMU!" while you're there!
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:15pm Matt from Springfield:

"BT presents: Solid Gold (band names)"
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:15pm hubba:

@Matt - i'm totally doing that! Double HA!
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:16pm hubba:

Home Blitz?
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:17pm hubba:

This blows most SF pop out of the water... it seems effortless
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:19pm porkduke:

Let's heat some Stormtrooper
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:19pm hubba:

Is this Robert Pollard?
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:19pm Cheri Pi:

Agree on Watery Love.
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:20pm Matt from Springfield:

My Personal Weep is weeping right now.
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:21pm Herman:

"Hermits for sale... who needs a hermit!?"
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:22pm Carmichael:

I'll be there in exactly 2 hours, 15 minutes. See you there.

@Hubba: Tyson won't have a clue who Carmichael is. My alibi is airtight ....
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:23pm Annete Drexler:

This guitar solo-verload is uncofortable flood residue
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:26pm monica:

love this freddy. been lookin' for it.
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:29pm Carmichael:

As a fan of Tuvan throat singing, I think this is sensational.
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:31pm jk:

this is an awesome song, serissoulsly.
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:36pm trefor:

cherrystones (i think) is wearing a WFMU tshirt live @

  Tue. 9/20/11 4:37pm hubba:

does anoyne know the label The Ninjas stuff came out on? Somoene burnt me a comp but it has no info...I thought it was on Blackbean and Placenta, but it looks like it was What's your Rupture... need a little info, any help?
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:38pm Bad Ronald:

@Charmichael: as a fan of Popeye, I concur!
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:38pm Cheri Pi:

I've seen Lovely Little Girls, the singer is a great artist and was wearing a beautiful pair of ladies' drawers...
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:38pm jaycjay:

Anybody else having problems with the RM stream? I keep timing out.
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:41pm dw:

Diggin it outdoors, thanks!
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:41pm jaycjay:

Er... didn't mean the RM stream actually, It;s the 128k that keeps dropping on me.
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:42pm trefor:

its james pants sry
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:44pm Carmichael:

This is the quietest song I've never heard ....
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:48pm mordred:

Is Dave Emory actually cover for the "Shadow Reich"?? ..like I suspect wfmu is run by??

  Tue. 9/20/11 4:48pm Matt from Springfield:

This feedback is earphone hell! But I'm stickin' with it, albeit at a lower volume...
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:51pm Cheri Pi:

Not me, I'm close to 11 here.
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:53pm Matt from Springfield:

@Cheri: Yeech! Well it's better now, but was your whole body shrilly vibrating from that feedback before?

How bout "Nails on Chalkboard"? :)
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:53pm BSI:

@Matt: we're just out of the Sonic Circuits fest down here (DC), so the ears are pretty compromised from several days of great noise. I hardly noticed any feedback in these headphones. Maybe I should be concerned.....
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:54pm BSI:

The last set was Barn Owl, which probably explains a lot, re: the hearing situation. Plugs or no plugs, it hardly mattered...!
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:54pm Matt from Springfield:

@BSI: It was higher-pitched, and you still might be hearing the ring in your ears from the Sonic Circuits Fest...
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:55pm blackgreen13:

hey, that Cold Dome not Gold Dome. Just FYI
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:57pm Cheri Pi:

My ear drums are safely leathered; it's dog whistles that bother me know.
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:58pm Jeanne:

Cookie Monster has a band?
  Tue. 9/20/11 4:59pm blackgreen13:

I can't do loud on headphones. I used to play bass and its like I'm allergic. For a while I had to back the bass levels down entirely
  Tue. 9/20/11 5:00pm blackgreen13:

actually lots of bands... he's much in demand
  Tue. 9/20/11 5:01pm Cheri Pi:

I prefer popeye singers to cookie monster,
  Tue. 9/20/11 5:01pm Oscar:

And he needed a second round of sexual healing! That might've been a different family member: the nookie monster.
  Tue. 9/20/11 5:02pm postmanpaul:

...and wolf whistles to dog whistles : )
  Tue. 9/20/11 5:02pm blackgreen13:

like this Lord Foul a lot
  Tue. 9/20/11 5:03pm Sonofnothing:

  Tue. 9/20/11 5:03pm Richard from Venezuela:

Good afternoon Brian and all the listeners. Thanks for the oxbow special.
  Tue. 9/20/11 5:04pm Rodney:

Is Weasel Walter still in Hatewave?
  Tue. 9/20/11 5:05pm blackgreen13:

Hey Richard. Thanks for the Sounds of Zilence, been listening to that
  Tue. 9/20/11 5:07pm blackgreen13:

  Tue. 9/20/11 5:08pm Tom L.:

  Tue. 9/20/11 5:11pm blackgreen13:

Gracias, will check it out!
  Tue. 9/20/11 5:12pm Sonofnothing:

Help me, which song am I referring to? Lich king is thrash metal, guisher is not the artist/track I was looking for either. I heard a real technical song that sounds like it was all midi.
  Tue. 9/20/11 5:14pm blackgreen13:

Lich King I think, they had an 8 bit thing Super Retro Thrash
  Tue. 9/20/11 5:21pm maximum goose:

yes this oxbow performance sounds just right to me
  Tue. 9/20/11 5:23pm Carmichael:

Thanks for the pics! Oh, and the music.
  Tue. 9/20/11 5:33pm maximum goose:

Have a good night everyone!
  Wed. 9/21/11 3:54pm smidge:

  Thu. 9/22/11 12:29pm D.Lactose:

Thanks for OXBOW!
  Fri. 9/23/11 9:50pm Thurston Hunger:

Delayed gratitude on the Oxbow'ing...look forward to the parade of their new 7" (better idea than cassettes).
Meanwhile that back-to-back of Ed Schrader's Music Beat into the Imperial Pompadours (!!!!) was some damn fine DJ'ing and insane in at least three ways.
Light Show! Light Show! and heavy soundz...
  Tue. 9/27/11 3:12pm melissaintlouis:

hell yeah, apop releases!
