Options Brian Turner: Playlist from May 2, 2017 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.

Got any Neubauten back there to chase that Faust with? I need some Blixa Bargeld screaming in my earbuds to drown out the stupidity and repetitiveness of my day "job."

Please get that link up ASAP! Wanna buy that album also....

Heavens to Murgatroyd, geezerette. I did not know Snagglepuss was patterned after the cowardly lion.

@Brian - did you make it to the Oxbow/Sumac show in London or had you split already? Oxbow were pretty amazing.

...'scuse the extra "n"!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/2/17 4:00pm Bronwyn Bishop:

lol i know, "what the fuck's a triffid" is a rocky horror callback
Avatar Tue. 5/2/17 4:03pm Cecile:

I think that was 1986.

That particular line was NOT a RHPS callback in my region back in the day...and I've seen it 40+ times...

well, it is in the ithaca college version of rocky circa 2012-2015

Bronwyn, I am older than dirt; that is way after my time in Ithaca (at Cornell)--and most of my viewings were in the NYC area... :D

i am saying hello.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 5/2/17 4:31pm Threemoons:

Bronwyn--I loved all of the music stuff happening then. I lived in Risley; bunch of great musicians there. :) Only place I knew where in one practice room you could have a guy playing a for-real restored harpsichord and two doors down, a thrash/punk band riffing on Bauhaus. Cornell was also where I discovered Philip Glass. If I ever get around to it I should copy some of my mix tapes and send them over to the station... :D
Avatar Tue. 5/2/17 4:31pm geezerette:

Rev TD: hello back. :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/2/17 4:32pm Bronwyn Bishop:

threemoons, if you send them i'll play them :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 5/2/17 4:33pm Threemoons:

Bronwyn--oooh, now I gotta find some blank cassettes--do they even sell them anymore?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/2/17 4:35pm Bronwyn Bishop:

that i don't know!
Avatar Tue. 5/2/17 4:36pm geezerette:

speaking of Pig-Dogs, friend of mine was walking in Santa Monica,(AKA "The West Side") and saw a small blond woman walking a 140 lb. Vietnamese Pot-bellied Pig. Said she was a "Pig-Walker". Yes, really.
Avatar Tue. 5/2/17 4:38pm TDK60:

3 Moons. Cassettes are still made but not always sold in electronics- or music stores. I find them often in a neighborhood bodega (=cornershop =convenience).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 5/2/17 4:38pm Threemoons:

Bronwyn, yes, Spamazon haz apparently! Gotta go home, blow the dust off of my 4 cases of tapes and see if they are on 1-hour to a side or 90 min/side so I get the right ones.

Not to be the oldest fart in the building but a few of those tapes include station identifiers for WLIR....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/2/17 4:40pm Bronwyn Bishop:

@threemoons: awesome :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 5/2/17 4:41pm Threemoons:

Bronwyn--also go see/plug "Dare to be Different"==documentary RE WLIR. I went to the launch at the Tribeca Film Festival, and also got to see The Alarm, A Flock of Seagulls, and Dave Wakeling of the English Beat perform live!!! Wakelking was amazing, btw, just him and a guitar, solo...

Dale--My Mom grew up in the Bronx across the highway from a Cafe Bustello coffee roasting facility. To this day, my Mom loves the smell of a freshly-opened can of coffee; it reminds her of opening the windows in the summer....
