Options Brian Turner: Playlist from April 5, 2011 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.

Wire  Live in the WFMU Studios   Options engineered by Jason Sigal and Whitney O'Keeff    Two and a half years after headlining one of WFMU's free 50th Anniversary concert broadcasts in New York, Wire appear on Brian's show today for their first ever performance in the station's studios. Formed in 1976, the group immediately staked its place as one of Britain's most celebrated exports of art-punk whose first three records (Pink Flag, 154, and Chairs Missing) are universally regarded as picture-perfect documents of innovative experimentation in songcraft. Traversing the lines between raw minimalist punk and complex experimentations, they've influenced everyone from Minor Threat to Guided By Voices, the Minutemen to the Futureheads, and continue to create new soundways with their latest release Red Barked Tree. Wire's 30 plus years have been marked by constant flux, side projects, regrouping and reinvention, and the 2011 lineup of Colin Newman, Graham Lewis, Robert Grey and Matt Simms play live on WFMU while in town for two shows: Music Hall of Williamsburg (April 5) and the Bowery Ballroom (April 6th).

  3:05pm Cheri Pi:

Strong opening BT!
  3:05pm Matt from Springfield:

Too excited....Wi-er, wi-er, wi-er....
  3:05pm efd:

  3:06pm Capt Kernal:

"like ice your butt is the dice . . . NOW DANCE"
  3:07pm andyg:

will doug hream blunt be making any live appearances on wfmu anytime soon?!?!
  3:07pm BT:

Hey everyone. Yep, coming up around 4:30! I dont think I've quite gotten my head around this little happening as of yet. It was wonderful.
  3:10pm Matt from Springfield:

@andyg: Yeah, first time hearing Doug, I think he's really good. WFMU would be a good station for him to do a set of this unique style.
  3:10pm pierre:

Hello Everyone, this is a great day for WFMU's listeners.
This is going to be so great.
  3:11pm syamheriyyy:

As great as a jam sandwich full of oozy peelers I hope?
  3:13pm Cheri Pi:

I don't know what I'm more excited about, WIRE or "your butt is the dice" Life is good.
  3:15pm pierre:

what are oozy peelers ?
  3:17pm syamheriyyy:

er, it's from a Wire lyric. My guess is marmalade.
  3:17pm jaycjay:

I don't know what they might be, but they don't sound like anything I want in my jam sandwiches.
  3:18pm Carmichael:

I know what I'm excited about! Wire will be running through the Listener Carmichael Live Mixing Board!!!!!
  3:18pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

where are the pix at?
  3:20pm syamheriyyy:

DCE you might need to upgrade, they're right there on the playlist page
  3:21pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I thought that might be the case...I am seeing three tiny white splotches the size of an exclamation point. Bummer.
  3:22pm try these::

  3:25pm Matt from Springfield:

Is this the Thai "Iron Man" again? That's been getting some serious play here.
  3:25pm pierre:

@ Carmichael : that's a collector comments board then.
  3:27pm max:

this is the only version of iron man that matters
  3:30pm jljl:

is the ning 7" new or old? thx
  3:31pm Domenic:

  3:31pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

thx for the effort, "try these", but for some reason those yielded pictures of polar bears in a snowstorm, if ya know what I mean
  3:32pm pierre:

Ning Machine is from 1971.
  3:35pm jljl:

1971, seriously? Wow? Where were they from?
  3:35pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

that's too cute
  3:37pm Nathan:

Coventry... England.
  3:37pm Matt from Springfield:

Unknown? Is he still around?! I want him to DJ my next party!
  3:38pm pierre:

i don't know jljl, i've found "from Coventry" on the web.
  3:41pm Matt from Springfield:

Thought I recognized "Pie and Mash" from Terre T (Gymslips)--I thought she announced who did the original, was it the Gymslips or someone else?
  3:43pm jljl:

I'll have to do research (yes I know about google but figured you guys knew since the 71 info came back so quickly). Never heard of Ning and that song was very "proto punk".
  3:44pm pierre:

i don't know a thing about them to, seems like that another fmu's treasure.
  3:45pm minnesota jeff:

Both Wire and R. Crumb on the airwaves today, bonkers.
  3:50pm Matt from Springfield:

I was listening to BT's live stream and the Mar 12 archive of Terre T at the same time, trying to see about "Pie and Mash", but if there was an original, it wasn't announced.

However it seems to be an original Gymslips,
  4:02pm Swami:

Kickin azz again i see. Great show so far Mr. Turner!
  4:06pm Lenz:

Oh man, I have to get up at 5am to listen to the show now. Stupid lack of daylight savings. So I've missed the first hour. And it's my birthday.
  4:06pm RobotBoy:

The Fall goes reggae.
  4:06pm Swami:

Than God for the archive; gotta go to the ortho now! Happ B day Lenz!
  4:07pm syamheriyyy:

Thanks for the Benefit for Japan info BT. Looks like a great comp. I'll be purchasing tonight.
  4:10pm Matt from Springfield:

Shit, I didn't know they RECORDED Ethiopian music over 100 years ago! Well, if there's one place to find something that exists, it's WFMU!
  4:14pm Lenz:

Thanks Swami!
  4:20pm pierre:

dernières minutes avant WIRE !!!
  4:21pm Lenz:

This is absolutely beautiful.
  4:24pm Matt from Springfield:

Mos def, Lenz! I hope Brian announces just exactly what that was, like a Swiss ecstasy or something.

Thanks for that Brian! In fact your pre-Wire set is already excellent--with Wire in the second half this will probably be one of your best ever!
  4:25pm Matt from Springfield:

There it is--the "Jodlerklub Thun" (Switzerland)
  4:28pm RobotBoy:

Klaus is an early German electronic dude.
  4:30pm max:

I need to track down that comp with the Jodlerklub Thun song on it!
  4:33pm Paulie B:

Anyone else notice the resemblance between Colin Newman and Lost's Benjamin Linus?
  4:33pm Matt from Springfield:

@max: It's NEW, so I'm hoping to find it or order it myself!

Jod-ler? It's YOD-ler klub! The Yodling Club of Thun. Probably pronounced "tune". So when I want to listen to more yodling I'll say "Lay some Thuns on me!"
  4:34pm Cheri Pi:

I'm so psyched!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  4:35pm Matt from Springfield:

Stomp your office/car/home floor in anticipation!
  4:36pm pierre:

i'm just behind Cheri Pi
  4:36pm Matt from Springfield:

YESSSSSSSS!! Play it Wire!!!!!
  4:36pm Emile:

Saw them three weeks ago in Amsterdam, great show!
  4:38pm Mark W.:

Oh, I wish I could see them tonight. Maybe tomorrow.
  4:38pm pierre:

then it begins… wooouuuhouuuuu !
⚡ WIRE ⚡
  4:38pm b. musikoff:

yes! yes! yes! yes! yes! yes! yes!
  4:44pm APMike:

Check out Squeaky hangin with Wire!
  4:45pm yair Yona:

Sweeeeeeeet!! Wire!! Greetings from Tel Aviv. Do come over to play me a show
  4:46pm Cheri Pi:

I was wondering how they'd deal with the naughty bits in this song. Nicely done.
  4:46pm RobotBoy:

"Push off" eh? Wire had to censor themselves for the radio. That's alright, good performance. A downloadable podcast would be nice (in FLAC would be even better)!
  4:48pm RobotBoy:

I hope they play some obscure stuff. Maybe even something from Dome or the First Letter album.
  4:50pm Cheri Pi:

I hope they play Map Ref. 41°N 93°W
  4:52pm yair Yona:

Just, what , I , need!
  4:52pm Cheri Pi:

"Mary Is A Dyke!!!"
  4:53pm Katya:

Whoa! Classic. Smiling ear to ear!
  4:54pm Cheri Pi:

I'm telling my grand kids about the day Wire played on Brian Turner.
  4:54pm syamheriyyy:

Great sound!
  4:57pm Mike VL:

So good!
  4:58pm b. musikoff:

  4:59pm Mac:

This is great, I saw Wire play Harlow Technical College in early 1978 and they were unlike anything else I'd seen or heard, exhilirating and seemingly uncompromising. What a lucky fifteen year-old I was!
  5:00pm Matt from Springfield:

Love it! I'm rocking out to you (and so are many others here!), so I'll come back in occasionally to give my applause your way! Keep it up!
  5:03pm pierre:

this is great !
  5:05pm Matt from Springfield:

NO! I don't want it to end! But I gotta admit, that was a KICKASS way to end it! It's worth turning the studio to smoldering wreckage for that!
  5:07pm Ike:

That no-talent pretty-boy Jimmy Fallon sure does get a lot of good bands on his show. By rights Craig Ferguson, a REAL late-night comedian, or Colbert should get them instead.
  5:07pm Parq:

I got distracted on parts of it. is that part of today's show going to be archived?
  5:08pm Matt from Springfield:

@Mac: You were a lucky 15 year old! I first heard of Wire when I was about 17, would have loved to see them then!
  5:08pm max:

that ruled, now I'm ashamed of my Wire ignorance
  5:08pm BT:

Hi Parq it will be archived, but there will be no downloads in the forseeable future via the FMA.
  5:08pm Katya:

Right, Ike?! Pulling out Wire and their solo LPs for our own pre-Fallon party tonight.
  5:08pm J J:

The 4th wire album. So good. Recently noticed a track from this album was in Silence of the Lambs.
  5:09pm ?:

Play some Classic wire,. What song would you pick if you were to pick a song for someone who never heard of Wire before?
  5:10pm max:

also Jimmy Fallon is much more then a no talent pretty boy, his whole "look at the camera and laugh" thing is actually part of a much more elaborate piece of performance art thats going over everybody's head, 50 years from now they'll be studing fallon alongside Beuys in art schools
  5:11pm RobotBoy:

Hmm. Mannequin or The 15th are good introductory tracks.
  5:11pm ?:

Fallon? I didn't know he was such a genius?
  5:11pm glenn:

map ref, three girl rhumba or i am the fly. i can't narrow it down any further than that
  5:11pm Ike:

Har har har @max ... yeah, and Vanilla Ice too.

I second "The 15th."
  5:12pm glenn:

the toronto show friday night was great, but very loud.
  5:12pm b. musikoff:

Outdoor Miner! My favorite!
  5:13pm Katya:

El Question, I play the entire PINK FLAG and 154 albums for kids. They were such mind-blowers and universally covered albums.
  5:13pm pierre:

i'd say, it might sound weird, but "Nice Streets Above" from the Send album.
  5:14pm MuttonChops:

Goblyn Kock is a speed metal band.
  5:23pm RobotBoy:

Wire seem like nice dudes, good to hear.
  5:23pm Katya:

WFMU, I love you. The swag hasn't even arrived yet, and I feel like my marathon donation is already more than reimbursed. Thanks, Brian and all involved in making this happen.
  5:24pm Doctor B.:

Too bad I won't be able to get to NYC for these two Wire shows. Those of you who can, go get 'em!
  5:25pm MuttonChops:

I dig Mission of Burma and pere ubu as others in the same wire vibe
  5:25pm pierre:

ah "In the Art of Stopping " that's a good song to. Any WIRE song is a good song, anyway, anytime
  5:26pm Katya:

El Question, there are mp3s on the official website. Hey, Doc, maybe you are near these tour locations: http://www.pinkflag.com/
  5:26pm glenn:

another thing : if you purchase red barked tree from the merch booth, you'll recieve a free four song e.p. of songs left off the album.
  5:27pm glenn:

ooops. i before e except after c and all that.
  5:27pm MuttonChops:

This is a college classic for me
  5:29pm john:

Haven't heard this song in for-evah! Thanks for everything Brian, WFMU, Wire...I love you guys. Sniff.
  5:30pm RobotBoy:

Is this the album version of Kidney Bingos? Sounds a little different than I remember. Maybe it's just on vinyl or something?
  5:31pm Parq:

@Brian, 5:08: Good enough. Thanks for the info.
  5:31pm BT:

Severely upstanding dudes, all of em! Glad you enjoyed. For those who lament the 30 min (relative) brevity, keep in mind that the we wanted to really get a pretty wide assortment of sounds absolutely perfectly mixed in the confines of the smallish studio. The band were patient, jovial, and accomodating beyond words. We're pleased they were pleased with the results and had a good time here. Total slamdunk session.
  5:33pm MuttonChops:

Cool Parappa Rappa
  5:33pm Parq:

"Kidney Bingos" is a swell little song. Just saying.
  5:37pm MuttonChops:

I am digging this
  5:40pm Medulary-ray:

This is reminiscient of Colin's solo stuff, namely Not To era
  5:45pm MuttonChops:

Perfect music to read an article about the Ocean Parkway killer. Spookie
  5:47pm MuttonChops:

here is the article
  5:48pm Matt from Springfield:

"Crazy About Love" is addictive--it's got me really spaced out, I need to get this album in particular!
  5:52pm Medulary-ray:

It's on a 12" single: Crazy About Love/Second Length (Our Swimmer), Catapult 30
(Rough Trade—RT T123—March 1983) 12"
  5:55pm pierre:

this Wire related show, is doing some good !
  5:55pm barb:

aagh just woke up and missed most of it! sounds great tho!!
  5:56pm link rae:

salut les gars, à la prochaine
& un grand merci brian et wire !
(and i'll have to score that "before the fall"-thingy :)
  5:57pm MuttonChops:

Thanks for the show!
  5:59pm Medulary-ray:

If you get the chance to see Wire on this tour I would take it. I saw them in England back Feb and they were on fire with a great attitude!
  6:01pm Matt from Springfield:

Thank you so much Brian!
Loved the show! Have a good night!
  6:01pm max:

awesome show!!! Thanks!!!
  10:49am Billyjam:

great show!!
  11:26am Christine:

God Bless Wire!!
and god bless WFMU and their marvelous archives!!
