Options Brian Turner: Playlist from February 21, 2012 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.

  Tue. 2/21/12 3:08pm Marmalade Kitty:

Hellooo BT!

  Tue. 2/21/12 3:09pm joe:

'ello folks. Wow this track is amazing
  Tue. 2/21/12 3:09pm Cheri Pi:

Yay. Cheri you are back up and running
  Tue. 2/21/12 3:10pm Marmalade Kitty:

Helllo Martha! you survived! ProfDumDum..
  Tue. 2/21/12 3:11pm Martha:

Yes - tho' my ego may not have...
  Tue. 2/21/12 3:11pm G:

Wow, are you going to debrief Martha after last night on DunDum? Any PTSD symptoms?
  Tue. 2/21/12 3:12pm G:

@Martha: If there was an ego problem last night, it wasn't yours. :-)
  Tue. 2/21/12 3:13pm Martha:

But more importantly - pledge now to get in the running for the Ice Age prize! Vinyl!
  Tue. 2/21/12 3:13pm Cheri Pi:

I'm using the flash stream and very satisfied with it!
  Tue. 2/21/12 3:20pm efd:

Martha's mic needs to be way louder!
  Tue. 2/21/12 3:21pm Mary Wing:

Brian, turn up Martha's mic, please?
  Tue. 2/21/12 3:21pm endtime34:

and turn down the stripper pole
  Tue. 2/21/12 3:22pm efd:

Mary is so much more polite than I am.
  Tue. 2/21/12 3:23pm Mary Wing:

That's because I know Brian has a sensitive soul. I'm not complaining about the show, just encouraging better co-host volumes. :-)
  Tue. 2/21/12 3:32pm Medici giraffe:

  Tue. 2/21/12 3:32pm Joshua K:

Swag for life has made me lazy. I am supposed to be milking it for prizes right?
  Tue. 2/21/12 3:37pm mz:

just lazily bask in the knowledge that good things are coming to you
  Tue. 2/21/12 3:42pm Cheri Pi:

Me too Josua K. I just sit back while swag piles up in my mail box, plus I own Brian Turner this calendar year. Life is good.
  Tue. 2/21/12 3:47pm dc pat:

fook, you own Brian? Good buy...
  Tue. 2/21/12 3:48pm Cheri Pi:

Resting on my laurels feels great, but my pledging fingers feel itchy, I need premiums.
  Tue. 2/21/12 3:49pm Cheri Pi:

martha/BT-how much for a prize drawing?
  Tue. 2/21/12 3:50pm Mike East:

A great way to get some extra swag is by paying early - from what I understand, theres some "vintage WFMU" gear available if $180 pledge is paid by 2/26.
  Tue. 2/21/12 3:51pm Martha:

Just $15 gets you on to the prize drawings!
  Tue. 2/21/12 3:51pm PDXMK:

Paper Dolls- great sound!! makin' workday groovy!
  Tue. 2/21/12 3:52pm Martha:

And feel free to pledge for each of them!
  Tue. 2/21/12 3:52pm Marmalade Kitty:

teenage fan club covered this..
  Tue. 2/21/12 3:55pm Martha:

Yes! - pledge $180 or more by the 26th and you get the Upsalapalooza double CD, Crackpots & Visionaries vol. 2 card set plus a classic issue of LCD! =the Vintage WFMU Pack P{ack -
  Tue. 2/21/12 3:57pm dc pat:

8>{| = I like mustaches..

Turn up Martha's mic even more!!!!
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:01pm Guy Smiley:

‘FMUsters what's going on?
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:02pm Carmichael:

I have to wait until payday, but then it will be a full frontal financial assault. You're still doing mouse pledges this year, I take it?
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:03pm joe:

Here is the track listing for what I would imagine is Vol 1 of Michigan Meltdown
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:03pm Joshua K:

You can do the monthly option and not have to wait for payday. Or pledge and pay later.
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:06pm MORBO:

anyone catch the name of the folk book Brian was describing?
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:06pm kim:

thanks for meltdown
Avatar Tue. 2/21/12 4:06pm BT:

It's Electric Eden by Rob Young, up right now for prize grabbage.
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:07pm BSI:

prize cabbage!
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:07pm joe:

Evidence to the existence of a Astaroth single http://www.collectorsfrenzy.com/Details.aspx?id=360255587532 seems it was a private press 45
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:07pm Martha:

Enjoy the Meltdown!
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:08pm Guy Smiley:

Crikey, that book sounds amazin;, guv'nah.
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:09pm Martha:

Yes - mouse pledges most welcome!
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:10pm Guy Smiley:

What is a 'mouse pledge'?
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:12pm Marmalade Kitty:

do we *listeners* keep the same listener#no, annually?
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:14pm Martha:

Yes, your listener no. stays the same; a Mouse of Today pledge is $265/year - a dollar a day -
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:15pm Mary Wing:

Hi Kitty! I can answer that question; yes, you keep the same listener number for as long as you keep pledging. Occasionally the database gets purged of people who stop pledging after a few years; I found this out the hard way! Lost my 4-digit listener number and now have a much longer one. :-\
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:15pm Martha:

For more info on the pledge levels and the gifts (or swag) associated w/ them, please check out:
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:16pm derp:

why's it called a 'mouse' pledge?
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:16pm Cheri Pi:

BT-you should get the Hoodoo Gurus on the show.
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:17pm Martha:

That would be $365/year - math works out better! - for the Mouse of Today pledge -
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:17pm wigwambam:

Think Martha meant $365/yr for Mouse of Today Pledge ;)
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:17pm Guy Smiley:

I donated on the Three Chord Monte show earlier, I'm presuming I'll have a listener # when I can access my personal email once at home - question: is this listener # used for anything else? (Yes, I am new, but you've already guessed that I'm sure). dx
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:17pm Marmalade Kitty:

many thanks Mary :)
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:17pm Martha:

Because it largely supports our on-line presence - it's the keyboard kind of mouse...you don't have to feed it.
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:19pm Guy Smiley:

Aha - "mouse pledge", gotcha. So since I did that earlier I actually did it...without knowing that I did it (nothing new there :D)
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:20pm Carmichael:

I want to keep the piece of equipment I sponsored last year, so maybe I should hop to it. <head being scratched, thoughts being juggled>
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:20pm Ike:

Flying Wedge archive posted at a (relatively odd) NPR station's site, of all places:
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:20pm derp:

don't have to feed it? o.O - a bit more confused - nevermind :o)
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:21pm Mike East:

I second that, Cheri Pi...Hoodoo Gurus should be on this show.
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:24pm Ike:

@derp ...well, you DO have to feed it money, but that's all. No grains or hays, and no cage needed. ;)
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:30pm bill:

Don't forget stridulation
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:30pm joe:

While you might think the name Insanity's Horse to be unique, another band with that same name played gigs in the Detroit area for several years beginning in 1970. Lower Michigan's Insanity's Horse played at the grand opening of the Cinderella Ballroom at 13311 East Jefferson in Detroit on Oct. 1, 1971. They also performed with Brownsville Station and SRC at a concert at Bowen Fieldhouse on the campus of Eastern Michigan University in Ann Arbor on Oct. 31, 1970. The band took the stage again at the Cinderella Ballroom with the Siegel-Schwall band and Jackie Lomax on March 10-11, 1972.
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:33pm joe:

Thank you for pointing out FMU's lack of snobbiness
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:36pm joe:

So yeah based on some of the stuff I have found on the Michigan Meltdown comp I think it is legit.
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:40pm G:

@joe: FWIW -- EMU is in Ypsilanti, and U of Michigan is in Ann Arbor. They're a few miles apart. Bowen Field House is in Ypsi.
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:42pm joe:

Good point but I think it still confirms that they were real bands and it's not a faux comp
Avatar Tue. 2/21/12 4:43pm BT:

Happy to hear!
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:44pm Cheri Pi:

I'm going to the real Budokan this summer, I'll bring back Cheap Trick and Deep Purple for you.
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:44pm jim:

wow... i am an old jersey boy who is an EXpat living in the jungle of nicaragua. i can´t believe wfmu is as cool as i remember it in the 70s and early 80s. wierd to hear fmu with monkeys howling in the background. i think they dig it too.
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:46pm Monkey:

"for the love of God, TURN IT DOWN!!
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:48pm glenn:

usually the monkeys are howling in the foreground.
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:49pm Dan from Toronto:

Sounds great, Mr. Turner
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:54pm Letha:

Hellooooo! BT!!!! La La La LoLa!
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:54pm Marmalade Kitty:

this is where opposable thumbs come in handy..
  Tue. 2/21/12 4:55pm joe:

@jim that is actually coming in through your broadcast.
Avatar Tue. 2/21/12 4:56pm BT:

Hi Letha! Thanks for the pledge!!
  Tue. 2/21/12 5:04pm Adam in Portland:

  Tue. 2/21/12 5:06pm G:

Will there be $500 bottle service?
  Tue. 2/21/12 5:08pm joe:

Marty Balin getting smashed in the head with a pool cue
  Tue. 2/21/12 5:09pm Adam in Portland:

G, I can't say, but I feel it's safe to assume that there will be grown adults drinking from baby bottles and all manner of other beautiful freak show ephemera. I would like to try to get invited to the back booth.
  Tue. 2/21/12 5:14pm Adam in Portland:

Wino commands you to PLEDGE NOWWWWW!
  Tue. 2/21/12 5:19pm Adam in Portland:

This Sunflare is peeling my face off. I don't need it (my face!) Great show, obvs, Brian.

Better than Please Kill Me??? Hmmm
  Tue. 2/21/12 5:34pm Marmalade Kitty:

anyone know the name of a track played on wfmu & Kens show.. Remix of a rolling stones track looping mick jagger saying calm down..etc..? It's been bugging me for weeks;/
  Tue. 2/21/12 5:34pm Alex:

Avatar Tue. 2/21/12 5:34pm BT:

YES Better than Please Kill Me
  Tue. 2/21/12 5:42pm Carmichael:

Kitty, you can search Ken's (or anyone's) archives by keyword, I believe. I was in your mental situation once, and cured it that way!
  Tue. 2/21/12 5:44pm dc pat:

  Tue. 2/21/12 5:46pm Marmalade Kitty:

thanks Carmichael. Unfortunately the artist/track gave no ref to jagger/stones..I don't have the keyword!
  Tue. 2/21/12 5:46pm dc pat:
