Options Brian Turner: Playlist from September 9, 2014 Options

Brian Turner's avatar View Brian Turner's profile 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.

In this era some may have chalked up the guitar to have exhausted itself as a means of breaking new boundaries in expression, yet Dorji, now in North Carolina, has wowed such advanced axemen as Bill Orcutt, Ben Chasny, and Sir Richard Bishop of the Sun City Girls who is part two of today's bill, making his second appearance on Brian's show. This taping was in front of a live audience on September 7th at WFMU's ground floor performance space, Monty Hall. Tashi's Bandcamp.    0:59:23 ()

I've got some nice practice racoons we could use for a little mock "burial at sea" while we're on the topic of sailing.

Speaking of loops, I remember seeing Robert Fripp one time (at the Bottom Line, I think), and he just set his machinery in motion, walked offstage for a bit, came back and fiddled with the controls, walked offstage again, and repeated.
Avatar Tue. 9/9/14 4:20pm Lopez:

I was lucky enough to see this live. One of the greatest shows I've seen in a long time and certainly the most talent-laden and unique

I know I throw a lot of exaggerations around, but Sir Richard Bishop is a true virtuoso on the guitar.
