Greetings, all! Today's "Tape Hiss" will be a little different than usual -- more indie rockish, in parts anyhow.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 12:01pm listener james from westwood:

Good Tuesday, Tony and all! Northern NJ is dark and rainy; fitting in its way. Glad for the sunshine of Tape Hiss!
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 12:02pm Tony Coulter:

Heya, LJ! Predictably, it's bright and sunny here in the rainy, but contrarian Northwest.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 12:07pm listener james from westwood:

You've earned it out there. Argh, hope you and yours are well. I've been a stress ball here in bluish-purple New Jersey. WFMU has helped with that (esp. now that it hit its $ goal!).
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 12:10pm Tony Coulter:

Yes, we are well -- and slowly preparing for our new dark overlords.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 12:18pm northguineahills:

Autumn has finally hit my shell of boredom in Trumplorida.. actually got down to 47F/8C, although it will get up to 75F/24C later today.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 12:19pm Tony Coulter:

Hola, NGH!
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 12:22pm northguineahills:

Did Fiction have other releases? The name sounds familiar.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 12:23pm Tony Coulter:

Don't think so, no. Perhaps there are other groups with the same name? And, of course, there's Friction.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 12:23pm Cecile:

hola, tony!
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 12:24pm Cecile:

thinking about Fred...
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 12:24pm Tony Coulter:

Greetings, Cecile!
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 12:25pm Tony Coulter:

Fred?
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 12:26pm Tony Coulter:

Flintstone?
  Tue. 11/15/16 12:28pm MrFab:

Ricky Ricardo's friend?
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 12:29pm Cecile:

Our friend in Paris who comments a lot here, and who will be having open-heart surgery this week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/15/16 12:29pm JtotheK:

hi Tony, hello . . . everyone!
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 12:31pm Tony Coulter:

@ Cecile: Oh, didn't know about that. Sorry for the flippancy, and all the best luck to Fred.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 12:32pm Tony Coulter:

Heya, JtotheK!
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 12:34pm Cecile:

that's OK.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 12:36pm Tony Coulter:

Unlike most of the groups heard here on Tape Hiss, Fiction seems like it might have had some commercial potential, back in the days when synth pop was big.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 12:36pm Tony Coulter:

What I can't decide is if the vocalist is actually British, or just trying to sound a bit British.
  Tue. 11/15/16 12:38pm MrFab:

Best of luck to Monsieur Fred, open heart surgery is nuthin to mess with.

(But, to be honest, I DO think about Fred Flintstone and Ricky Ricardo's friend. Far too often.)
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 12:38pm Cecile:

If it was in Michigan, they were trying to sound British.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 12:38pm Cecile:

Anglophilia was strong there
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 12:45pm Tony Coulter:

They could have worked a bit harder on the cover design....
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 12:46pm listener james from westwood:

Hugest of luck to our Fred, and best wishes for a full recovery!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/15/16 12:53pm Carmichael:

Heya Tony and Hissers.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 12:55pm Tony Coulter:

Ahoy, Carmichael!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/15/16 1:05pm Carmichael:

Fiction does not exist on the internet, so I guess they don't exist.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 1:06pm Tony Coulter:

They are Fictional.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 1:07pm northguineahills:

Ok, I'm pretty sure I've heard of Horsey...
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 1:08pm Tony Coulter:

They released this thing in '93: www.discogs.com...
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 1:19pm Cecile:

better listen to what the man sayyyyssss. sounded like Wings at first kinda.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 1:20pm Tony Coulter:

Ha!
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 1:31pm Tony Coulter:

This tape came out 16 years before I moved to Portland, but I still see releases by many of these bands in the shops out here (second hand)
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 1:32pm Chris from DC:

Haven't heard Bugskull in a really long time.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 1:34pm Tony Coulter:

Hey there, Chris!
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 1:35pm Tony Coulter:

Word of warning: This tape on now may be hard to accuplaylist accurately....
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 1:37pm Tony Coulter:

But I will do me bestest.....
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 1:42pm Tony Coulter:

The Astro-Zombies were from Williamsburg, Brooklyn, long before ... well, you know.....
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 1:42pm Cecile:

Big Black and Pavement were big back in olden times, weren't they dad?
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 1:45pm Tony Coulter:

Yep, back in the time of the dinosaurs.....
  Tue. 11/15/16 1:45pm MrFab:

Ha, was just thinking that Cecile. Hello, noise rock! Was a fan (and participant) back in the college-rock days. Don't forget Butthole Surfers.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 1:46pm Cecile:

I saw them more than I saw bands I liked, Mr Fab.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 1:47pm Tony Coulter:

Surfing Big Black Buttholes on the Pavement (Sorry!)
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 1:48pm Cecile:

hahhahah
with a side of Die Kreuzen and a little Pixies dust.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 1:55pm listener james from westwood:

This is definitely blowing the cobwebs outta the ol' noggin! Dig it!
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 2:07pm Rich in Washington:

I only vaguely remember Astro-Zombies via an ad in a zine. Maybe a review. Not sure. This definitely falls somewhere between what I call the Ugly Atonal 80s and Amrep 90s aesthetics.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 2:08pm Tony Coulter:

Hey ho, Rich!
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 2:13pm Tony Coulter:

Amrep as in Amphetamine Reptile Records? There's a scene I know virtually nothing about....
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 2:16pm Cecile:

Some of it's crap, but some of it's great. They also put out a feedtime record and reissued all the Urinals's stuff.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 2:24pm Rich in Washington:

I've really been on an 80s (Buttholes, Feedtime, Stickmen W/Rayguns, Big Black, Scratch Acid, Killdozer) & 90s (AmRep catalog, Cheater Slicks, Pain Teens, God Bullies, Jesus Lizard, Cop Shoot Cop, Cabbages & Kings, Swans, etc) noise rock kick lately.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 2:29pm Tony Coulter:

Are the God Bullies gods who bully, or bullies who bully God?
  Tue. 11/15/16 2:29pm MrFab:

Boredoms!
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 2:32pm Rich in Washington:

Boredoms - YES!
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 2:34pm Cecile:

this particular piece is something that got stomped out when indy rock hit it big. Loads less random weirdness.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 2:36pm Rich in Washington:

Kinda young, kinda wild. Charlie.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 2:37pm Cecile:

But this is what survived to this day. idiotic covers.
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 2:37pm V Priceless:

pretty sure Bobby Short did the original version of this fragrance
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 2:40pm Tony Coulter:

Greets, VP!
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 2:42pm V Priceless:

hey TC! Fun show!
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 2:42pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, VP!
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 2:57pm northguineahills:

Thanks Tony!
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 2:57pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, everyone! See you next week....
Avatar Tue. 11/15/16 2:57pm listener james from westwood:
