Don't know what any of today's cassettes are -- PLEASE HELP ME I.D. 'EM!
Avatar Sun. 9/17/17 2:50pm Tony Coulter:

A disclaimer for all you sticklers out there: I do have *some* idea what's on the "Home Taper Sampler" cassette, of course, but I'm not sure who some of the artists are, given that only last names appear, and I don't know any of the track titles.

Hello ?
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 12:02pm listener james from westwood:

In for the mystery show! Howdy, Tony and all!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 12:02pm βrian:

Salut.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 12:03pm Tony Coulter:

Heya. Pierre and James!

... and βrian! It's a rush for the front door....
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 12:03pm pierre:

this is going to be great I can tell
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 12:07pm JtotheK:

hi tony, hi everyone. i am traveling for work, hoping to catch most of the mystery show, no doubt it will be amazing!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 12:09pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, hey, JtotheK!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 12:13pm JtotheK:

this is great. i took my headphones out so my coworker can also listen. he's about ready to ask me to put my headphones back in.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 12:16pm Tony Coulter:

Just searched "McKinney - Counting" on discogs, and it came back with one hit: A Melba Moore album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 12:24pm northguineahills:

Quick, did you write all of the artists' names down???!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 12:25pm Tony Coulter:

Nah: they are collectively known as AAC, which is good enough for me. (Heya, NGH!)
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 12:27pm Sem Chumbo:

Hello from the right coast, Tony, and all.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 12:27pm Tony Coulter:

Unless, I guess, the improv took place at somewhere called the AAC ... or at an event sponsored by an organization called the AAC.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/19/17 12:27pm I am the Upsetter:

Mystery's!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 12:30pm Tony Coulter:

Ahoy, Sem and I Am!!
  Tue. 9/19/17 12:32pm JakeGould:

So it’s audio art? Came in late. Years?
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 12:33pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, JakeGould! This tape is from around '84 -- that much I know.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 12:39pm listener james from westwood:

Makes a million times more sense than Trmup's speech to the UN today!
  Tue. 9/19/17 12:42pm JakeGould:

Well, once this show is archived and Google crunches it hopefully someone somewhere can find it and add context.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 12:42pm Tony Coulter:

That's what I'm hoping!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:02pm Yvang:

Hello Tony/listeners! Enjoying the mysterious sounds of the mystery cassettes!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:03pm Tony Coulter:

Greets, Yvang!

I guess in some weird way the mystery adds a bit of extra frisson.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:04pm Tony Coulter:

"Everything that I do is because of Genesis P. Orridge." There's a clue.....
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:05pm Tony Coulter:

... that leads nowhere.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 1:07pm JakeGould:

Logging in! So, are there 4 tapes in total you will be playing?
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:08pm Tony Coulter:

Yep -- though I'll only have time to play part of the fourth (the orangey one in the upper left).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 1:11pm JakeGould:

Thanks for clarifying! But damn… This makes me really want to do some detective work.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:16pm Mayuko:

Good afternoon, Tony and all!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:17pm Tony Coulter:

Hey there, Mayuko!! Good to see you here....
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:19pm Mayuko:

I'd still be very gladly listening even if this repetitive sound goes on throughout the rest of your show. Which one of the 4 tapes in the image is this?
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:20pm Tony Coulter:

It's the one on (your) upper right.....
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:22pm Tony Coulter:

The label was glued on upside down, but right way up it's a pic of an ivy-covered building.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:23pm Mayuko:

Ah, I see that's what you meant by Leafy label tape, I first thought they might have been magnolia flowers.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:29pm Tony Coulter:

"Frenetic destruction" -- that phrase gets repeated quite a bit. Another clue for all you sleuths.....
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:29pm glenn:

buena sera di italia.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:30pm Tony Coulter:

Ciao, Glenn!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:33pm Tony Coulter:

Actually, I think the phrase "frenetic destruction" slowly morphs into "phonetic structure." Or something ... maybe....
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:35pm listener james from westwood:

Leafy Label made excellent lunch music!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:36pm Tony Coulter:

Were you eating salad, I hope?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 1:39pm Webhamster Henry:

Not bad for music composed by vegetation.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:40pm Tony Coulter:

Webham! Heya!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 1:50pm northguineahills:

Leaf!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:51pm Tony Coulter:

Yep, it's Leaf Erikson....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/19/17 1:53pm I am the Upsetter:

My mind is going...
  Tue. 9/19/17 1:54pm epizootics:

Looking at the playlist, I'd wager a guess that Klee's given name is Mark. He made some music that's found on a few choice taper comps and also did some interesting art, a piece of which was a cover of Unsound.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/19/17 1:54pm I am the Upsetter:

"frenetic instruction"
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:56pm Tony Coulter:

@ I am the Upsetter: It seems to morph. The first time it sounded like "destruction" But then again, maybe I'm hallucinating!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/19/17 1:58pm I am the Upsetter:

Hard to say. Enjoying this show.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:59pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, epizootics!! Thanks for the tip -- that sounds like a good guess. I'll add "Mark" to the playlist.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 2:09pm Tony Coulter:

Late-breaking news: Someone very much in a position to make a good guess (he believes he once owned the tape) just now suggested (on FB) that the "Leafy Label" cassette is John Oswald. I must admit it doesn't sound like Oswald to me, but I will investigate further.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 2:12pm Tony Coulter:

I should add that he was reacting to my photos of the labels, not to the sound of the tape.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 2:20pm Webhamster Henry:

Oswald was never a frenetic destructor!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 2:27pm Tony Coulter:

Just remembered that I have at least one more mystery tape. Oh well -- it (they) will have to wait for a future show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 2:27pm Cecile:

I don't think I ever want to know who made this cassette.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 2:28pm coelacanth∅:

greetings Tony and hissters
...(just here for a moment, unfortunately)
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 2:28pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Cecile and coelacanth∅!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 2:29pm Cecile:

Guten Tag!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/19/17 2:37pm I am the Upsetter:

"hmmmm, I don't recognize this song"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 2:38pm (i)(k)EEE:

This tape goes really oddly with proofreading descriptions and blurbs for bullshit diet book bundles.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 2:39pm Tony Coulter:

Eek, it's Ike!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 2:40pm JtotheK:

this song 'you are my favorite music' i'd purchase if it were issued on a 45.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/19/17 2:40pm I am the Upsetter:

(i)(k)EEE, I know thats not your cat but damn your avatar gets me every time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 2:42pm 1k3:

This book teaches you every step, including a proven meal plan for burning fat, farting like a demon, and dropping your weight. This is a book of action. And farting. It doesn't just tell you to try harder. It tells you to fart harder. Like a hyena. Life rewards those who take matters into their own hands. And their own farts.

(I may have changed a few things there.)
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 2:50pm Tony Coulter:

The cassette on now is the one on the upper left.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 2:50pm ɨkɛ:

This is good. Maybe inspired by The Caretaker, or an inspiration for The Caretaker?
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 2:51pm Mayuko:

This is very beautiful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 2:54pm JtotheK:

great show today, thanks for sharing the mystery tapes, Tony!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 2:55pm Tony Coulter:

Here's a link to Cheyenne's upcoming FMA Listening Party playlist, which looks like it might be a tribute to William Berger, who — so sadly — has left us behind: wfmu.org...
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 2:55pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, JtotheK!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/19/17 2:56pm I am the Upsetter:

I like this one.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 2:56pm listener james from westwood:

Thanks, Tony!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 2:57pm northguineahills:

Thanks Tony!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 2:58pm Mayuko:

oh it's already 3?! Thank you Tony for the wonderful ??s!!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 2:59pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks for throwing up -- I mean, showing up -- everyone. See you next week!
