Options Brian Turner: Playlist from May 15, 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.

Listener comments!

  Tue. 5/15/12 3:05pm Matt from Springfield:

Bizarro. Alfred Bizarro, to be exactly.

And yes, it sounded weird to me to, but as exact modifies the verb "to be", I think the adverb "exactly" is the proper word to use. Actually.
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:06pm Matt from Springfield:

There are several meetings I could refer to as a "one way doomsday trip to nowhere".
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:07pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I hope there's more adverb-advice in the comments ahead
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:08pm G:

Grammar Bizarro: "To Be Exactly"
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:08pm Woo:

Alfred should be Jagger's band on SNL this Saturday
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:11pm Matt from Springfield:

@Woo: Seconded!
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:13pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: I think that will be the case.
It's great with the WFMU comment boards--normally the advice on adjectives is free, but then the adverbs cost you. That's how they get you.
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:15pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

dangling participles are where the big $'s at
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:15pm Brett W. Thompson:

Enjoying this dancey stuff
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:16pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

does "cocaine cool" imply pastel-colored blazers and shades?
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:17pm BSI:

HEY NOW, son. Put that participle away before somebody calls the authorities.
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:21pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

well split my infinitive, I never!
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:22pm northguineahills:

Pink Reason should be remixed by The Pink Soft Truth.
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:23pm Matt from Springfield:

Cocaine cool--light pastel blazers, white jeans, HUGE tinted out-of-fashion shades. Think Kids In The Hall character sunglasses.
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:24pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I like when the Melvins do "Goin' Blind" too
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:25pm The Goggles...:


...they do nothing.
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:26pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

that is the most self-indulgent drum solo-slowdown I've ever heard.
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:26pm Ryan M.:

need to nab that Pink Reason single. killer tymz.
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:26pm jljl:

I miss the C/Z label. And Empty.
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:26pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

...and I'm all about self-indulgence
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:29pm dc pat:

wow, that's a funny site.
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:29pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I had to shut it off immediately out of fear
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:37pm ENO:

Howzabout "Dead Finks Don't Talk"?
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:37pm Can't Get ENOugh Fan Club:

Happy 64th, Brian Eno!!
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:37pm BDR:

Fripp is 66 tomorrow. Hint!
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:38pm BSI:

What I've heard of the Don Preston LP is effin' brilliant.
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:42pm Fripp and Eno:

No nursing home for us, wankers!
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:45pm Matt from Springfield:

"Sound After Death": I don't quite see that as a slogan for the homepage, but I can imagine that as the title of a DJ premium.
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:49pm Cheri Pi:

Not Fadades! the angriest Frenchman on the interwebs!
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:50pm Cheri Pi:

he filmed this entire video sitting on the pot, waving his empty toilet paper blades around shouting at his wife to toss him a roll.
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:51pm ?:

wow, thought this vocalist was Eno for a second. . .
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:52pm BSI:

Instant Fadades fan until death.
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:53pm paula pc:

am super digging this Kadavar...let alone the Fadades...
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:53pm Cheri Pi:

The pyramids & planets are classical devices, foreshadowing his urgent needs.
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:54pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

  Tue. 5/15/12 3:56pm dc pat:

shit, I just got a bloody nose for no reason! I haven't had one in years, maybe tens of years...
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:56pm RISKY:

Go Brian! Yeahhh!
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:57pm BSI:

Hell, I think everything is bleeding now.
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:57pm Mr Donut:

Fadades, kadavar, menstruation sisters - Is This Heaven?
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:57pm Matt from Springfield:

@dc pat: It's that Cocaine Cool song--just *listening* to it must be damaging!
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:57pm blip:

sounds like the little Haitian voodoo doll from Trilogy of Terror
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:57pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

dcp, it has NOTHING to do with the Menstruation Sisters
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:58pm Matt from Springfield:

LOL @ BSI, now I LOL @ Mr Donut!
  Tue. 5/15/12 3:58pm dc pat:

I think it was Fadades--got it as soon as I started watching that video!
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:00pm blip:

I meant Zuni Fetish Warrior....
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:01pm Chris from DC:

+DOG+ is sounding pretty great here.
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:07pm GrOG:

play some MESA RITUAL. they're at ende tymes on friday...
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:09pm Matt from Springfield:

Give The Rummer Drummer Some Rum With His Drum.
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:13pm SteveL:

Pretty sure I wore this P. Furs tape out on many a long drive.
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:13pm Cheri Pi:

Nice one BT.
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:15pm Mike East:

I saw Psychedelic Furs for my birthday a few months ago. I was bummed they didn't play this. Still a good show, though.
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:15pm Carmichael:

Hiya BT and Turnerites. I'm trying to tune in via QuickTime. It says "negotiating" .....
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:16pm Stanley:

Yeeaahh India by The Furs. Took this to India wouldya believe in '86. I peaked no question.
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:17pm Cheri Pi:

this Turnerette is using Flash-and it's perfect.
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:19pm Matt from Springfield:

Hello Turnerite Carmichael. (Is that the name of a mineral? Carmichael turnerite...?)
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:20pm Matt from Springfield:

You yourself turned me on to QT to play streams, which happens to be the only way I can listen to them at work. But the networks here are very choppy, so I normally just use the Flash player at work. Unless it's GTDS or Ichiban or a stream that doesn't have a Flash option.
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:22pm G:

No joke, Matt. Turnerite aka Monazite

  Tue. 5/15/12 4:22pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

the WFMU Geology club meeting is now in order...any old business?
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:24pm G:

Rock on
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:24pm Mr Donut:

yes, I am very interested in rock
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:25pm Matt from Springfield:

Old business? No, nothing older than 10 million y.o. today.

Glam rock Brian E!
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:26pm Mr M says:

"rocks on, rocks off"
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:26pm Matt from Springfield:

There's your challenge, Brian.
Categorize a new type of turnerite mineral--and there can be a Brian Turnerite!
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:32pm plu:

the dreadful grapes ,,, on fmu ???
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:32pm Cheri Pi:

...the only good deadhead is one that's dead.
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:32pm GrOG:

woah, i smell patchouli all of a sudden
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:34pm jt:

the woo hoo person is making me very aggro
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:34pm jerry's kids:

chillout, old dudes, or i'll jam this baby into a river
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:34pm Kolp:

I was not sure if I had the right station for the first few minutes.
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:35pm Matt from Springfield:

Joy Through Repetition.
It's the 80s prep school kids all over again.
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:36pm Matt from Springfield:

At least Scott Williams looped The Stylistics. That's something you WANT to linger over.
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:36pm jerry's kids:

at least he's playing the K Hole music now.
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:38pm northguineahills:

I actually like the Dead (up through working man's dead), but I wasn't a fan when I saw them in '95. I just went for the circus.
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:39pm BSI:

re-playing the fadades video on another tab with the Landerim. It's a whole new layer of awesome.
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:39pm Chris from DC:

I'll just never understand the folks who listen to nothing but the Dead. If that's what they want, great, but it makes no sense.

That Landerim is really nice.
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:40pm Matt from Springfield:

Up Against The Seat, Bruthatruckers!!
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:42pm ulp:

two hour loop of plastique bertrand
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:47pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

  Tue. 5/15/12 4:49pm kat330:

Ms. Monk! Love her work. I was lucky to sing with a couple of people who worked with her. One degree of separation I suppose.
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:50pm northguineahills:

I dig Meredith Monk as well. Cool stuff kat330.
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:51pm Matt from Springfield:

Was digging this vocal piece, pleasantly surprised that it's Meredith Monk!
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:51pm Brett W. Thompson:

  Tue. 5/15/12 4:52pm kat330:

Hi, BT and all! Been in and out of the FMU loop ever since sending Philo (JT) off to Helsinki on Sunday.
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:52pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: According to the Bacon scale, you are 0, people you have met are 1 degree, and people they've met are 2 degrees.
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:52pm Mr Donut:

And this is just the warmup!
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:52pm Carmichael:

Reading down the list of labels, and suddenly I get to Warner Brothers. Seems way out of place.
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:53pm reality show idea:

ted nugent vs. burzum. real life battle in the woods. varg's views are now as offensive at the Nuge's, i think! http://www.burzum.org/eng/news.shtml
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:54pm Matt from Springfield:

@Carm: Before major labels had their own "separate", "indie" divisions, they had some outlier acts signed to the main label. Laurie Anderson was also WB, IIRC.
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:55pm kat330:

@Matt: I may be 0, but still know Monk had rubbed off on these folks I worked with (Pablo Vela and Larry Gordon, or his GF), and that then rubbed off on me. :)
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:56pm Carmichael:

@Matt: So was Bugs Bunny.
@kat: I just saw Tony Bourdain's show from Helsinki last night. Pretty interesting. I hear it's kinda cold there.
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:56pm Brett W. Thompson:

Wow, so weird! And delightful
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:57pm kat330:

Definitely I'll have to hit the archives for Eno's Seven Deadly Finns. Hm.
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:57pm still b/p:

A coworker just said this is the music you hear before you die.
  Tue. 5/15/12 4:59pm kat330:

Carm, what was Bourdain doing in Helsinki? JT mentioned his first proper Finn meal was fish stew, but nothing too weird was in it. :) Oh, and JT said it's been warmer and nicer than usual at this time.
  Tue. 5/15/12 5:01pm Carmichael:

@kat: Freezing his ass off, getting a sauna, drinking heavily, eating Finnish fare and street fare, etc ...
  Tue. 5/15/12 5:02pm Matt from Springfield:

Great vocal art! And..we didn't even have to tune to the Ubu stream to hear it! Thanks Brian!

@kat: The good thing about 2 degrees of separation is, if the person you know didn't wash their hand, the other person really *can* rub off on you! :)
  Tue. 5/15/12 5:03pm kat330:

Maybe it was taped from an earlier time? My only visit was with JT at about this same time of year in 2002, and it was really nice weather. He said it was almost that warm on this visit.
  Tue. 5/15/12 5:04pm shaun cassidy:

WTF is going on with this station?
  Tue. 5/15/12 5:04pm lulu:

this sounds good
  Tue. 5/15/12 5:05pm kat330:

All I know is it sure is lonely around here. First time we've been apart for anything beyond about 10 hours total since September 3, 2000. Thank gawd for the Internet.

@kat: Here's a rec for you and JT: on Julie's show this morning there was a Finnish band she played called Lau Lau. It was a beautiful track, with stringed instruments. I thought it was Asian at first until Julie said it was Finnish. Check out the Archive, it's in the middle of the show:
  Tue. 5/15/12 5:12pm lup:

@lup: comment looping indeed.

this drum circle rules, tho
  Tue. 5/15/12 5:13pm kat330:

@Matt: Excellent and thank you! I've spent a portion of today recording some tracks of my own and, in fact, one that was 0-dgrees connected to one of those 2-degree people. Funny that!
Avatar Tue. 5/15/12 5:14pm BT:

Lau Nau, actually not Lau Lau.
  Tue. 5/15/12 5:15pm Carmichael:

@kat: I'm sure Bourdain tapes these months in advance. They need lots of time just to delete his cursing rants.
  Tue. 5/15/12 5:17pm northguineahills:

I just finished the 5 seasons of No reservations on Netflix. I was hitting 3 episodes a night.

  Tue. 5/15/12 5:17pm Matt from Springfield:

Ah, thanks for that catch, copyeditor BT!
(And I actually typed it right @5 this morning, but not right now! :)
  Tue. 5/15/12 5:18pm kat330:

I wonder if the stringed instruments were kanteles? I have one and am determined to use it on some track or other, even if inexpertly done.
  Tue. 5/15/12 5:20pm Matt from Springfield:

"I have __ am determined to use it on some track or other, even if inexpertly done."
Um, I think that's the very definition of "pretentious", kat ;)

Yep, me on the kantele and everyone else on the cowbell.
  Tue. 5/15/12 5:23pm Lizardner Dave:

Who are those twin ladies in the pic on the home page? Been bugging me for half an hour.
  Tue. 5/15/12 5:23pm Matt from Springfield:

"Really *explore* your studio space, kat. Let the kantele come to you; we'll record the cowbell once you're done."
  Tue. 5/15/12 5:24pm Matt from Springfield:

@L.Dave: The pic info just says "Paris"--don't know if that's the movie name, or the location or what.
  Tue. 5/15/12 5:24pm Lewis:

  Tue. 5/15/12 5:25pm G:

@davecave: Jesse (Frow Show) 3-6AM Monday mornings ends his show description with something like "and the Grateful Goddam Dead". Plays them too, even a recent "audience show recording" -- aka ROIO (recording of indeterminate origin), as we show traders jocularly acronymize them. (Often it is very well known exactly who taped a given show, and which speakers they were near or not near to.)
  Tue. 5/15/12 5:29pm Matt from Springfield:

Dare I say "Who's there?"
  Tue. 5/15/12 5:30pm kat330:

@Matt: Kantele.
  Tue. 5/15/12 5:31pm Carmichael:

This song is kickin' my ass. In a good way!
  Tue. 5/15/12 5:33pm Matt from Springfield:

Wooooo! 41% IPA! 82 prooooooof!
  Tue. 5/15/12 5:33pm Matt from Springfield:

Kantele who?
  Tue. 5/15/12 5:33pm kat330:

@Matt: You kantele tune by its cover.
  Tue. 5/15/12 5:35pm Matt from Springfield:

@kat: D'OHHH!!
(But, at least that's an EFFECTIVE way to show pronunciation on the comment board!)
  Tue. 5/15/12 5:36pm Carmichael:

Speaking of IPA and proof, it's $2.50 pint day today! I have one leg out the door already.
  Tue. 5/15/12 5:37pm Matt from Springfield:

Clay Pigeon has played several tracks from *genuine* radio station samplers--I'm very tempted to get that WTNG album. Maybe even put it on a cassette and get Clay to play from it! ;D

Awesomer than usual show BT, thanks!

what Mr. Donut said.

Yeah, I agree with the declaration of awesomeness above.
