By Jeebus, I might actually be able to listen in uninterrupted today!
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 11:59am Tony Coulter:

Hey ho, Rich! The German Shepherds will be glad to have your undivided attention.
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 11:59am listener james from westwood:

::wags tail in anticipation::
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:01pm Tony Coulter:

Hola, James!

I warn you, though: these German Shepherds are not too cuddly.
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:03pm Rich in Washington:

I know so little about The German Shepherds outside of their Music for Sick Queers LP. I've loved that record for a long time but never tracked down anything else, other than the I Adore You single.
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:08pm listener james from westwood:

I'll take care not to look them dead in the eyes!
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:08pm Mayuko:

Hello!!!!!!!
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:09pm Tony Coulter:

@ Rich: There isn't much else as far as official releases go, other then another single and the "Explore the Freedom of Total Control Tape."

They are def big faves of mine....
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:09pm Tony Coulter:

Hey there, Mayuko!!!
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:12pm Tony Coulter:

@ Rich: They do have a whole bunch of comp tracks, though.
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:14pm Tony Coulter:

Free trip to the moon for anyone who can ID the LP underneath today's tapes. Big hint: the group is from Portland.
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:17pm Tony Coulter:

Half the audience seems to be yakking away non-stop. What better place to hook up than a German Shepherds concert?
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:20pm Doug Schulkind:

Are you saying half the audience would be shepherding non-stop at a Yak concert, Tony?
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:20pm Tony Coulter:

Exactly!! (Heya, Doug!)
  Tue. 5/10/16 12:22pm MrFab:

Yay German Shepherds! These lyrics were transcribed verbatim from an old Cold War scare album.
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:24pm Tony Coulter:

Really? Interesting!! (Hola, MrFab!)
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:28pm Cecile:

I just heard about the Afrika Bambaataa allegations, this song might be sadly appropriate:

Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:29pm Tony Coulter:

Greets, Cecile!

Well, here's that ol' Booty Jones again.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/10/16 12:30pm Carmichael:

Heya Tony and dog/yak lovers.
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:30pm Tony Coulter:

Ahoy, Carmichael!
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:35pm Tony Coulter:

As I said (on mic), this tape doesn't have a tracklist. I don't recognize the track on now -- think it may only appear here.
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:37pm Tony Coulter:

Though, of course, perhaps my memory is failing me. If you recognize it, do pipe up!
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:38pm Tony Coulter:

In the meantime, why not agree to call it, "He's Anal."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/10/16 12:39pm Carmichael:

I found this on Ancestry, one of the founders: Stephen J Scheatzle

Born on 9 Feb 1952 to Edgar Scheatzle and Dorothy. He passed away on 2 May 1992 in San Francisco, California, USA.
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:42pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, Carmichael. They created false biographies for themselves (such as the claim that one was arrested for child molestation), but, sadly, I guess that obit could be real.
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:43pm Tony Coulter:

The Jodie in question here is Jodie Foster. I believe this is a setting of John Hinckley Jr.'s letter to her.
  Tue. 5/10/16 12:46pm MrFab:

These guys were better than Throbbing Gristle. There, i said it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/10/16 12:46pm Carmichael:

Here's a more thorough article: nathannothinsez.blogspot.com...

Sorry about being the buzzkill ...
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:48pm Cecile:

everything of theirs I've heard has been intense and thought-provoking.
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:49pm listener james from westwood:

Yech, awful Bambaata news.
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:49pm Tony Coulter:

I'm guessing that Zappa/Mothers cover will never be released, for copyright reasons.....
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:52pm Tony Coulter:

This is an alternate version of "THC," sans lyrics....
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:54pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks for the link, Carmichael. Will peruse post-show....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/10/16 12:55pm cklequ:

I never even heard of these guys before today. This is great stuff.
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:57pm Cecile:

These guys were a favorite of some CBN DJs in the 80s. I remember maybe one song from back in the day.

But it's kind of great hearing everything today.
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 12:57pm Tony Coulter:

Hey there, cklequ! Glad you're enjoying the tape....
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 1:03pm Rich in Washington:

I had that song by them Armageddon Man on a tape from the radio show for many, many years and when I bought the LP was surprised the rest of their stuff was nothing like that track.
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 1:05pm Rich in Washington:

a radio show. Not THE radio show.
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 1:06pm Tony Coulter:

Yeah, "Armageddon Man" has "rockin' guitar," doesn't it? Not normally their thing!
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 1:13pm Tony Coulter:

So, as I mentioned, this tape was sent to me by a friend of the German Shepherds. Sadly, I no longer remember who he was, and if I still have his letter I've completely misplaced it. My "files" (ha!) are just a bunch of totally disorganized cardboard boxes full of random, crumpled crap.
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 1:21pm Tony Coulter:

But, well, thanks for the tape, unknown person....
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 1:26pm Tony Coulter:

"J.J." is, of course, Jim Jones....
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 1:28pm Rich in Washington:

JJ recordings are more horrific than anything any 80s industrial band could come up with. No wonder so many released these without nearly any accompaniment.
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 1:39pm Tony Coulter:

A lot of that Manson/Jim Jones '80s industrial/death culture stuff seems pretty tired by now -- but to me the German Shepherds' brand of creepiness really holds up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/10/16 1:45pm cklequ:

Do you have any plans to replay any of your former tape hiss shows anytime soon (or not so soon)? I know you do this on occasion.... If so, can i make a request?
  Tue. 5/10/16 1:46pm MrFab:

Totally agree tony, and you can throw in the Nazi and/or S&M tropes. Suicide, like these doggies, also hold up well thanks to their avoidance of cliches.
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 1:46pm listener james from westwood:

Mxyzptlk? Weirdly, it's pronounced MIX-yez-pit-lik. Superman villain.
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 1:48pm Tony Coulter:

@ cklequ: Sure, I will eventually do a Tape Hiss replay. Request away....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/10/16 1:51pm cklequ:

www.wfmu.org... .....
Loved that one. And not just because of that mind blowing Jad Fair Track (I'm too cheap to drop 25 bucks on the only copy available on discogs)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/10/16 1:54pm JtotheK:

good afternoon everyone.
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 1:54pm Tony Coulter:

@ cklequ: Sure, that show is a good candidate for resurrection, as it aired a long time ago. Will keep it in mind....
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 1:54pm Tony Coulter:

Hey ho, JtotheK!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/10/16 1:55pm cklequ:

Thank you!
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 1:57pm Cecile:

listener james, I was just going to say that
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 2:00pm Tony Coulter:

@ James: Aha! Makes sense now....
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 2:06pm Tony Coulter:

So, is anyone familiar with any of these German bands? Had never heard of any of them before getting this tape last year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/10/16 2:18pm Carmichael:

On iTunes, Die Ruttler is listed under Romanian Pop Rock: music.okihika.com...
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 2:21pm Tony Coulter:

Sorry for the playlist confusion during side A -- took me a while to get the hang of their wacky Germanic track-title system.

Sorry also for not saying the name of Superman's arch villain correctly yet again -- perhaps his name is better left unsaid.
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 2:23pm Tony Coulter:

@ Carmichael: That seems unlikely to be right -- unless it's a different outfit. But who knows....
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 2:29pm Tony Coulter:

What's confusing about this tape's tracklist is that it includes the names of the True Love Tapes releases the tracks are from, in rather cryptic fashion -- but I've got it all sorted out now. (You'd think I would have sorted it out before playing the tape, but no....)
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 2:35pm Tony Coulter:

Actually, my copy of the tape is missing the tracklist -- I'm cribbing from the discogs page here: www.discogs.com...
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 2:41pm Tony Coulter:

So, Discogs tells me that most of these bands put out cassette albums -- in some cases, quite a few.
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 2:51pm Rich in Washington:

Thanks, Tony!
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 2:51pm listener james from westwood:

Thanks for the fine Tape Hiss, Tony!
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 2:53pm Tony Coulter:

Du bist willkommen!!
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 2:55pm Rich in Washington:

For some reason, I thought the show's over. I am about 4 minutes in the future.
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 2:56pm Tony Coulter:

Well, I did say goodbye -- because I ain't coming back on mic. But please to enjoy the Crap Detectors....
Avatar Tue. 5/10/16 2:57pm Tony Coulter:

Now I'm done for realz -- see you next week, everybody!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/10/16 4:14pm Nardo:

Looks like I missed a good one Tony! I have an original copy of MFSQ and I find it more disturbing then when I originally bought it.
