Options Brian Turner: Playlist from September 6, 2016 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.

Options September 6, 2016: w/ special guest BRIX SMITH-START

Listen to this show: | Read comments

Brix Smith Start returns to Brian Turner's show a little more than a year after his marathon 6-hour radio extravaganza on The Fall, where the band's former guitarist and former Mrs. Mark E. Smith first appeared on WFMU. Since then, Brix has released her memoir, The Rise, The Fall, and the Rise (Faber Books) chronicling her American upbringing and eventual relocation to Manchester to help guide the 1980's version of The Fall into a new realm and higher public profile. The book documents her rollercoaster period of success and turmoil before landing on her feet in Britain's TV and fashion world (and a recent cameo in the Ab Fab movie!). Last month, Brix invited Brian to visit her London home she shares with her husband and her pugs Pixie and Gladys, where they sat down and talked about her long strange trip, and current return to rock with her new band The Extricated. We'll also be playing some Adult Net, live Extricated, and more live Fall material.

Macula Dog sounding pretty rad too!

Can I get a click-click?

I'm 4 stars deep already and I missed a few tracks

Psyched that I didn't miss the Brix!!

You're not missing much with "Fashion Fix."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/6/16 4:15pm Rich in Washington:

Always check that Fall roster. You may have been a member at some point and not known.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/6/16 4:21pm Rich in Washington:

Wow! Craig Leon worked with Adult Net at one point.
Avatar Tue. 9/6/16 4:21pm Cecile:

That's a great thought and an album title: Your Mom was probably in the Fall"
Avatar Tue. 9/6/16 4:33pm Brian Turner:

Ambient snoring: Pixie the dog.

those snores!

This is magical good fun.

Always great to hear the Hanley brothers!!
Avatar Tue. 9/6/16 5:06pm Brian Turner:

Distinctive musical gents.
Avatar Tue. 9/6/16 5:07pm Brian Turner:

Hope they get stateside. Where the hell is Bill Graham?
  Tue. 9/6/16 5:08pm Chris Mohr:

Ask Randy "Now" Ellis at his Mancave in Bordentown!
  Tue. 9/6/16 5:09pm Chris Mohr:

Also, so interesting how social media have changed one's perception as a fan. I remember reading about Steve Hanley's book launch on Twitter and seeing The Extricated form pretty much in front of our eyes!
  Tue. 9/6/16 5:11pm Chris Mohr:

Marc Riley says Fall fans are "-whoa-"? Hmph. What's that even mean? Hmph!!
Avatar Tue. 9/6/16 5:12pm Brian Turner:

I think he means they are a severely attentive to detail lot, so it's gutsy for Brix to get out there and take on the history. History is a big element/non-element in the band....
Avatar Tue. 9/6/16 5:13pm Brian Turner:

....and I'm sure he can attest!
Avatar Tue. 9/6/16 5:21pm dan in wisconsin:

Totally Wired, one of my (many) favorite Fall tracks...So many albums to choose from.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 9/6/16 5:24pm Michael 98145:

Thanx for today's show ...
  Tue. 9/6/16 5:24pm s/buh:

Great version of Frenz
  Tue. 9/6/16 5:24pm MONEYBAG$:

Wish I had been old enough to get into this show...my first Fall album was a cut-out cassette of Seminal Live
  Tue. 9/6/16 5:25pm MONEYBAG$:

Did see them later at another demolished Boston club but without Brix
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 9/6/16 5:26pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

I semi-recall they had a date in DC for that tour (@9:30 methinks) & couldn't manage to get my corpse there, degnebbit.
Avatar Tue. 9/6/16 5:27pm Brian Turner:

yeh they played Chestnut Cabaret in philly and I missed it...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 9/6/16 5:32pm Michael 98145:

Geez, this is great
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 9/6/16 5:32pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

98145 speaks truth.
  Tue. 9/6/16 5:33pm MONEYBAG$:

Brian - is this show floating around digitally? I have found some but not all of it
Avatar Tue. 9/6/16 5:33pm Brian Turner:

so weird they're doing a Grotesque song this late in the game! But never discount anything I guess...

will do, thanks
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/6/16 5:39pm Davis:

I saw them at leeds university in 1988. they were flying!
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 9/6/16 5:41pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

jeezus. All the hits. Seventeen thumbs up.
  Tue. 9/6/16 5:42pm s/buh:

Pretty rich & amazing discography by '88. It's been a while, but I don't remember anything that deep in Phila on that tour.
Avatar Tue. 9/6/16 5:44pm Brian Turner:

Yeah, rare for the setlists to dip back beyond two albums before the one they were touring. Thefall.org site is an incredible resource for documenting every single gig --- can look at that thing for hours. Once in a while there's a surprise oldie.
Avatar Tue. 9/6/16 5:46pm Brian Turner:

Marcia Scofield is totally blasting against Hanley this whole gig, I love it.
Avatar Tue. 9/6/16 5:50pm Cecile:

I saw them once in 2003. After several attempts. They were great
Avatar Tue. 9/6/16 5:51pm Brian Turner:

I showed up at Brownies the night after the fateful '98 gig with the bustup and exodus of Burns and Hanley at last - there was a sign on the door that said "The Fall cancelled Mark E. Smith is in jail"
  Tue. 9/6/16 5:54pm s/buh:

That site looks amazing. Just went in to spot check, found the setlist for a gig I saw in London 12/82. Whole set is there + gig flyer. I don't remember Eton Crop at all, but Felt were great & Danse Society too (surprised me).
Avatar Tue. 9/6/16 5:55pm Brian Turner:

Was Riley gone?
  Tue. 9/6/16 5:57pm s/buh:

he was there.
  Tue. 9/6/16 5:57pm s/buh:

The Cleveland show the following year I don't think he was
Avatar Tue. 9/6/16 5:59pm Clara Sanchez:

I´ve enjoyed a lot! ¡Gracias!
Avatar Tue. 9/6/16 6:00pm Lopez:
