Options Brian Turner: Playlist from May 8, 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. 5/8/12 3:01pm CHeri Pi:

bonjour Brian Returner!
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:02pm paula pc:

cheri pi said it perfectly!!!!
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Hooray Brian! Welcome back from Europa!
Off to a great start with Tom Verlaine and Kim Fowley.
Avatar Tue. 5/8/12 3:03pm BT:

Hey gang, super to be back.
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:03pm last.fm/user/johnnykevlar:

Whoa! Is this new Kim Fowley? This is nuts.
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:04pm paula pc:

Brian, have you ever been to a Sonic Protest event???
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:06pm Matt from Springfield:

The girls he dates use him for free fast food? I should just take burn victims to Burger King on a date--seals the deal..
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:06pm Cheri Pi:

ooooh Bimbo Tower, fancy!
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:07pm Matt from Springfield:

"What?! C'mon baby, I didn't know you recoil from fire-grilled meat!"
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:10pm Matt from Springfield:

Also I like this song, whatever language it's in.
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:11pm Cecile:

hola, all!
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:11pm Cecile:

ha I found my Christ Child album the other week. Still haven't played it. Still need a better turntable.
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:14pm das:

Christ is kicking my ass over here.
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:16pm Matt from Springfield:

Hola Cecilia!
Do you need a new needle, is the speed off, or is it just a general problem?
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:19pm Cecile:

It's just sloth and untidiness. And the fact my turntable is about a billion years old.
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:19pm fred:

@paula pc: he missed it again. But next year I'm sure he can even have a DJ set there if he wants to.

My fave track on that Sonic Protest comp: Puech/Gourdon/Bremaud
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:20pm Mr Donut:

yay! Welcome back BT!
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:21pm paula pc:

@ fred - merci! I need to check this year's comp out, I can see...
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:23pm fred:

@paula pc: might not be all that easy to find, but I think most tracks will get played on this very station, eventually

Were you there this year?
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:24pm northguineahills:

I love old school Japanese noise!
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:26pm pierre:

Bonjour Brian !
Glad to hear you back after hearing you in Paris !
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:28pm last.fm/user/johnnykevlar:

Does anyone have anything they want to ask Steve Albini?
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:28pm fred:

Salut pierre!
There will be a Benjamin Bret / Manuel J Grotesque gig in Paris June 8. More details as soon as I get them
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:29pm pierre:

fantastic fred, thanks !
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:30pm Matt from Springfield:

Love Charlemagne Palestine!
Bonjour once again, pierre!
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:32pm fred:

@pierre: This week: Api Uiz on Saturday @palais de tokyo (!). And tomorrow Eric Cordier, Arnaud Riviere and others @scopitone
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:33pm pierre:

I wish i could come to ApiUiz, but it's to many work time on my side…
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:34pm Matt from Springfield:

Did you meet BT when he was in Paris, pierre?
Anyone else here meet our roving DJ in Europe?
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:34pm fake herman cain:

where is Uzbekistan? & who is in charge?
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:35pm Matt from Springfield:

The noise with the Stones' "Emotional Rescue" bass--keep forgetting about this track but remember that one fragment. Prob because I was trying to figure out where I'd heard that bass before.
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:42pm fred:

@pierre: no way you can miss this! We'll be giving them grief for years over this -- and already started -- with TF1 as a sponsor to boot. I'm sure you can spare that time.
There's a chance another great Ian Saboya project (le cercle des mallissimalistes) will play in Paris July 1. But no word of a Chocolat Billy gig :-(
Avatar Tue. 5/8/12 3:45pm BT:

Hey Pierre n Fred, great to hang! I forgot to say that after the DJ thing i walked up the street to some Senegalese restaurant and there was an insane rockin show going on, JB-style leisure suit dude running down the aisles singing thru booming PA --- Paris ruled!
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:45pm fred:

@Matt: we both met BT after his DJ set in Paris. I heard him offer to have a session with the band who played after him, and that could be amazing. They're part of Headwar, one of the best French bands right now
Avatar Tue. 5/8/12 3:50pm BT:

Yes! So great....
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:52pm fred:

@Matt: their name was "les morts vont bien", but I don't think they have anything out. But they *might* put stuff on the FMA someday
Avatar Tue. 5/8/12 3:54pm BT:

I think they said their LP was out this week, wanna get that sucker...great great set.
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:54pm pierre:

@ Matt : i even was wearing my Brian Chippendale t shirt :)

@ Fred : i'm afraid, this is going to be difficult, i'm stopping work around 03.00am these days…
Oh yeah, the singer from "les morts vont bien" has the FMA adress now, she has to do it :)

@ BT : glad you enjoy your stay, that means i'll be able to offer you more wine next time ! :-)
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:56pm fred:

@BT: They came close to playing on Keili's show last year. What ruined it is that they played in a 21+ venue first, she was too young to get there.
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:57pm Matt from Springfield:

Awesome, glad everyone had an amazing time!
I hope to do a WFMU meetup in a very distant place someday! :)
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:57pm pierre:

@ BT : could you record the "leisure suit dude" ?
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:59pm fred:

@Matt: if you select Paris, pierre volunteered to organize meetups there, he's the one to contact
  Tue. 5/8/12 3:59pm Matt from Springfield:

@Brian: Yeah, the visuals on that Senegal dude are...wow! What kind of music? Rock/soul, "traditional" African, a dancehall like beat?
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:01pm fred:

Filastine keeps being great, I'd love to see him again, he was really good when I saw him live
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:02pm Brett W. Thompson:

Filastine sounds great!
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:03pm northguineahills:

Yeah, I haven't seen him (Filatine) in almost 4 years, I believe w/ Rupture. He's always onto new stuff.
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:03pm Matt from Springfield:

Well I still want to go back to London, and I've always wanted to ride the Chunnel--with such a strong FMU fanbase in both I would definitely contact for meetups in both cities! Pierre, I'll call you on the Mat-phone in case I'm in Paris! :)
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:07pm pierre:

You're welcome in Paris, anytime Matt !

On that topic, one of the great thing about the radio, is that, i've been a radio listeners for a long long time, and since i know wfmu, i keep on wanting to meet people related to this great thing, it's awesome to meet people talk about whatever, and share some drink. It's social media made flesh !
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:13pm fred:

@pierre: it might take some more prompting to get Krine and Nico to get stuff on the FMA.
Can anyone upload music there now or would they need a curator?
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:13pm Andy S.:

Cosmic coincidence: I was writing something about Michael Chapman and listening to the show online when suddenly you started talking about him! Thanks, BT, for your continuing support of this great and underrated artist.
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:14pm Andreas:

Gutted I missed the Chapman show Brian, sounding great. Excellent seeing you and hanging out in Glasgow tho.
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:16pm northguineahills:

I think I was at Tonic thrice a week from 2000 until it closed, april 14, 2007. Fun place to randomly show up, and more then likely would have good music. Fun place to dj too. I really miss that place. It was my cultural sanctuary.
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:17pm fred:

@NGH: so where do you hang out now?
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:17pm Matt from Springfield:

Great Slavic folk!
Avatar Tue. 5/8/12 4:19pm BT:

Hey Andreas --- killer to see you too! Sink the Bismark! Good thing not too much of that, the prop plane to Dublin next morn was rattling my skull the way it was....
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:19pm Gene K:

Great song by Yanka!
Also to check out Grazhdanskaya Oborona (trans. Civil Defense), one of the first and most influential Russian/Soviet punk bands. Yanka was very much affiliated with them during her musical career. Thanks!
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:23pm Andreas:

Yeah, that stuff is for rare occasions and small measures only I think. Heading down there just now actually to catch up with Ruaraidh and Cheer, so I'll have to catch up with the rest of the show later. Have a good one.
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:24pm jt:

wow, that yanka track was amazing
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:25pm paula pc:

so I look up that yanka track, and of course, Brian is thanked on the page I find: http://www.filmcement.org/rummage/archives/000343.html
Avatar Tue. 5/8/12 4:26pm BT:

wow, that's shocking....
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:26pm fred:

Seems Brian is everywhere but Sonic Protest. You have to fix that, BT.
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:27pm earwax:

Does anyone know where there is a translation of the Yanka song?
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:27pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Gene for that great bit of history!
@paula: Yep, thanks and acknowledgments to WFMU people (Brian, Irwin, Irene Trudel, Jason Sigal, Terre T et al..) can be found all over the web, on amazing bands' pages!
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:30pm Matt from Springfield:

Go Benbecula! (I don't know anything about the label, but I know Benbecula is one of the distant isles of Scotland!)
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:30pm northguineahills:

@Fred, there no longer seems to central place for good shows w/ a sense of community. I just show up at random shows any more.
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:32pm dc pat:

Yanka Dyagileva track was great and now I have to go through her stuff. Later and thanks.
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:32pm Gene K:

@Matt: You welcome!

Brian, could you give a link or provide more info about the Siberian PsyPunk special? Much obliged...
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:34pm Ike:

Dug that Alec Cheer greatly.

Boss is away today, so I can comment!
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:34pm Ruaraidh:

Cheer rules! Especially cos it's his round!
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:35pm fred:

@NGH: that sucks. I guess the only way to really measure how precious these places are is to lose them. Which sucks too
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:35pm Stanley:

Hi Brian glad you got back okay. Great to see you in Glasgow.
Avatar Tue. 5/8/12 4:36pm BT:

Sure, its this show from 2008: www.wfmu.org...
And yeah, I found a Yanka disc in Brighton Beach of all her albums on an MP3 disc, great stuff....
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:37pm Matt from Springfield:

Gooooo Waylon!!! (raises lighter)
Avatar Tue. 5/8/12 4:37pm BT:

Stanley you too, awesome to have din at Stereo!
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:38pm the glowing one:

Waylon, finally some music you can take seriously
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:38pm Matt from Springfield:

@Ike: Hooray for you! I comment general satisfaction at your ability to comment.
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:38pm Cecile:

where's Madam in all this?
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:39pm Matt from Springfield:

@glowing: Hells yeah! Like...a falsetto Professor Elemental with a disco backbeat!
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:39pm Liz B.:

I know PB was a fraud, but this is one of the best records ever!
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:40pm SteveL:

If you follow Plastic Bertrand with Stinky Toys, I'm running home to check the record cabinet. (I will also be smiling quite a bit.)
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:41pm Stanley:

Ruaraidh (if you're still there) - any idea which venue Milk Music is at a week saturday.
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:41pm the glowing one:

in a way sex pistols were a fraud, too
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:41pm Cecile:

I wish Jet Boy Jet Girl never existed and PB came up with the only original Ca Plan Pour Moi.
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:42pm Cecile:

Opportunists and hucksters sometime make the best music.
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:48pm Ruaraidh:

At nice n sleazys on sauchiehall st Stanley. Looking forward to it!
  Tue. 5/8/12 4:48pm Ruaraidh:

At nice n sleazys on sauchiehall st Stanley. Looking forward to it!
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:02pm Carmichael:

Better late than never. Hi BT and everyone.
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:07pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi Carm!
We are still here, just zoned out a little...
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:07pm Stanley:

Thanks Ruaraidh. Fantastic Moon Unit track. Love it.
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:08pm Carmichael:

Hi Matt, worked to the bone here. Good thing it's $2.50 pints Tuesday. Gets me through the week.
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:12pm Matt from Springfield:

To link Carm and BT, I just got some more *tonic* water yesterday, so I'm going to enjoy some gin after work! G&Ts!
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:13pm Cecile:

What? Where is Jason going?
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:17pm northguineahills:

I need to get this comp. PSF recs has always been awesome!
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:18pm the glowing one:

speaking of glue, I've been trying to remove a sticker for the last 30 minutes!
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:19pm paula pc:

this is really something else
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:19pm the glowing one:

sounds more like rhythm and blues, btw
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:22pm the glowing one:

that's a horrible sound quality
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:24pm Carmichael:

Yes, Martin Newell!
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:25pm paula pc:

this is like a rubbing alcohol bath after all that scuzz
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:28pm Matt from Springfield:

"Scottish pop group in the 1980s"...cool, I'm liking the Bluebells. Scotland produced so many great bands in the 80s!
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:32pm northguineahills:

Just listened to the Talking Heads version last night. Luna's aint' bad either.
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:35pm slugluv1313:

WOW loving this Lee Renaldo version!!! awesome show, Brian, THANK YOU for redeeming a thoroughly crappy day!!!!!!!
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:36pm Martha:

Yes! Bill Direen!
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:37pm insectfactory:

killer set today.
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:39pm Cecile:

ah, yes.
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:42pm Cecile:

I'm feeling old and tired today, so it's nice to hear something from my college years.
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:43pm Matt from Springfield:

Api Uiz, mentioned earlier.
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:46pm Carmichael:

Since I'm buried in work, I'll say "good show" at this point. Good show, BT!
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:47pm the glowing one:

Api Uiz oddly sounds like a R.I.O. band covering Sonic Youth songs to me
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:54pm the glowing one:

thrust - fist held high - poseurs will die!

can there be any more veracity in a single line?!?
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:54pm Cecile:

ah, don't kill 'em. Just rough em up a little.
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:55pm the glowing one:

how about some manoway now?
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:55pm the glowing one:

  Tue. 5/8/12 5:56pm Cecile:

It's Sugarloaf, I mean Mount Carmel.
  Tue. 5/8/12 5:57pm jt:

it's Sugarloaf - and then you take a blowtorch to it!
  Tue. 5/8/12 6:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks BT! Glad to have you back!
