Options Brian Turner: Playlist from July 12, 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.

  3:17pm #K:

*_* this is currently great & will continue to be great great great
  3:17pm f u t u r e <> b l o n d e:

this the perfect prescription for houston sun avoidance...
  3:18pm postmanpaul:

Hi Brian, hi listeners. This is nice, I like, it but my cat isn't too sure.
  3:18pm Rodney:

Glad the Lost Tribe tape is in on the table.
  3:18pm bill:

I nevar heard a none a this stuff, cept maybe "Phone Calls" I hurd a that before
  3:19pm Rodney:

Will the Roman Cross tape emerge this time?
  3:21pm jaycjay:

Yeah, postmanpaul, my cat and I often have similar disagreements.
  3:22pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

this is lovely and a very appropriate name
  3:23pm Cheri Pi:

It's too hot for This Heat.
  3:25pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi everyone.
  3:26pm Matt from Springfield:

I would think that hot would die from the heat, yet it remains hot out...
  3:26pm Jimmy:

The heat is too...damn...high!
  3:28pm f u t u r e <> b l o n d e:

loving the emp -
  3:28pm postmanpaul:

Sun's setting here Cheri Pi and it's a cool 62. Put your feet in a bowl of water and some chilled Chardannay in a glass (not the other way round), that helps :) .
  3:32pm Rory:

Goddamn! What a great show this is going to be!
  3:33pm Cheri Pi:

That is excellent advice PP!
  3:33pm Matt from Springfield:

I'm surprised at the intensity of cassette sound--how many tracks fit on the cassette tape?
8? 16?
  3:35pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Cassettes can be split into 8--I've never seen it done on 16, not sure if that's possible.
  3:36pm Younger Generation:

Huh? The car CD player is the most basic option there is! No Aux hookup, no iPod port, no satellite radio? CD player LUXURY and only a TAPE deck? When did you grow up, the '30s?!
  3:36pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

of course, the sound is not as clear the more tracks you use
  3:37pm Rory:

I Had a tape come with a piece of tar.
  3:37pm f u t u r e <> b l o n d e:

  3:37pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: Then again, vinyl usually has, what, 8 tracks? And some sounds are a lot better on vinyl than digital. And that makes sense--the more tracks, the less space and less capacity available for sounds.
  3:38pm Michael from Elkins Park:

I once got a cassette from RRR that came between 2 pieces of moldy bread. That was a sight to see!
  3:44pm Turtle:

Is the This Heat tape just meant to keep us all on the hook?
  3:44pm f u t u r e <> b l o n d e:

it's now pouring here! yes!
  3:48pm Matt from Springfield:

Shit, you're right! I thought that was a homemade Glam tape! How many of us confuse "Gary Glitter" and "Gary Gilmore"? (raises hand)
  3:48pm Officer Pendlefort:

Gary Gilmore was hardly a serial killer.
  3:49pm Rory:

There's a Youtube channel called "postmortemjunkie" that's putting alot of Broken Flag stuff on Youtube.
  3:49pm miketp:

the discs are strange so why shouldnt the cassettes be wierd also. fmu keeping the playlistsstrange but interesting. cool stuff brian
  3:50pm f u t u r e <> b l o n d e:

thanx rory!
  3:51pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Matt, vinyl releases are 2-track stereo...they may have been recorded with god knows how many tracks but they are released as 2 track stereo...which is also the most common way to release cassettes!
  3:51pm The Minister of Caps:

I love shit like this. Keep it coming!!
  3:53pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: There we are! Tracks consolidated into each stereo channel, that's all you really need.
  3:53pm aaron:

it's nice to be able to work in my studio with museum quality art playing. thanks brian
  3:55pm f u t u r e <> b l o n d e:

for real...
  3:55pm Matt from Springfield:

Very staticky. If this were a typical BT show I would expect some hardcore to be faded in about now--but on an old cassette, you never know! I kind of like that aspect of old cassettes.
  3:55pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

shorted-out electronics and found audio detritus, just like the product description says...
  3:56pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

and only in 1 speaker! awesome.
  3:56pm Ryan M.:

no, your radio is not broken...its a weird geiger counter noise tape perfomred with actual radioactive material ...thats only in one channel, was intended to be like this. Enjoy!!
  3:56pm Matt from Springfield:

And a fine description it is too: "Order and disorder in a freeform haze". That's why we keep comin' back for more!
  3:57pm Kenny G request:

This is your best show in ages, Brian! Keep it coming!
  3:58pm Kenny G request:

Damnit, not anymore! Take it off, it's got a beat!
  3:58pm miketp:

i have a slew of old cassettes by some vet fmu jocks ray franks richard syn pleasure holger jeff clauss and dougs johnson and bud styple wish i had more sounds like my radio i built at rets in nutley
  4:01pm Turtle:

Sh*t, I wish I was reading a poorly photocopied zine & listening to Slow Death on a walkman about 15 years ago.
  4:01pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

well, you probably were! relive through remembrance
  4:07pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

now that's a great use of the stereo field
  4:09pm JERAMEhy:

Mr. Cool by Killer Kane Band. I was expecting to hear something like that which reminded me this show was on.
  4:11pm brandonesque:

I enjoy the fact that some of the kids these days have discovered the joys of cassettes. There was a program repeated on both sides tape by Rodent Plague on Jerkwave Tapes a few years back that was mighty nice.
  4:14pm Matt from Springfield:

Awesome, French speaking over what sounds like Leonard Cohen.
  4:16pm Matt from Springfield:

@brandonesque: I'm pretty young but I was surprised at the revival of cassettes; the last cassette I bought was 5-6 years ago, "pre-revival". A Spinal Tap concert bootleg from '91, on both sides of a homemade cassette.
  4:17pm Matt from Springfield:

Although since listening to FMU many have touted the virtues of cassette vs. CD, including how sturdy the tape is and how much longer it remains intact than a CD.
  4:20pm bill:

The cat's ass! HAW!
  4:20pm brandonesque:

I would say they have a much much much warmer sound than CD, which I love
  4:21pm Matt from Springfield:

Woot woot! Plug for Clay Pigeon!
YES, he still does! He records street interviews on a microcassette recorder, and each show has a brief interlude where he "turns over the tape"!
  4:24pm Matt from Springfield:

Whaddaya know! The Geiger counter tape--so hot, it's radioactive!
  4:24pm Matt from Springfield:

Putting the RADIO back in RADIOactive!
  4:27pm Lou:

he already has a bastard child that looks like yoda!!
  4:28pm conrad:

"how sturdy the tape is and how much longer it remains intact than a CD." - don't think so, not in my experience; I got rid of most of my tapes . they got stretched out. havent had any probs with most of my '80s CDs tho (not that I'm a huge CD fan, either...).
  4:30pm Matt from Springfield:

I just realized...that serial killer execution news tape was probably made by that prison groupie character of Catherine Tate, who marries a man on death row in Texas!
  4:31pm Oops:

See this bad news from Posh Isolation: http://poshisolation.net/web/
  4:31pm Mike East:

I agree conrad - tapes don't hold up, and even more so, getting a tape deck to stay alive, or play at the proper speed is an even harder task. I think vinyl is pretty ideal for holding up, if only because people tend to take better care of it since it is by its nature more fragile. CD's are pretty much disposable in my opinion, especially after the dawn of the CD-R spindle.
  4:32pm Mike East:

thats said, I still have stacks of tapes that I've made, in storage which I am hoping to go through in my elder years to relive my early 20's. The key is temperature control.
  4:33pm Matt from Springfield:

@conrad: Could it be your 80s tapes were played more than your 80s CDs? The ones from the 80s are the ones breaking from CD rot and age now, and most CD-Rs of course are not intended to last long.
@Mike: But I agree with you about tape decks--those tend to break down, whereas the delicate record and needle, if treated properly will last much longer.
  4:34pm f u t u r e <> b l o n d e:

turn up the fukking drums JACKMAN! ;p
  4:38pm andyg:

enjoying the show today!
  4:40pm Matt from Springfield:

@BT: Have you ever played Robert Turman before? This sounds like something you may have played on here, or it could just be a similar sound.
  4:41pm BT:

I have, likely from the LP reissue Ryan did on Dais this past year, great indeed
  4:42pm conrad:

Maybe so, Matt. I haven't tried my '80s CDs lately. And I sure did like that tape by The Fall!
  4:43pm sm:

this is a hot track!
  4:45pm Matt from Springfield:

@BT: Thanks! Any Tuesday's a great one for playing that LP. And thanks to Ryan too for reissuing that album!

@conrad: I'm sure a ton of FMU listeners broke or wore down a tape by The Fall!
  4:46pm bill:

This show is so HOT you have to wear protective clothing
  4:46pm Lactose:

Great show!
  4:47pm Matt:

I am curious orange for me...
  4:47pm f u t u r e <> b l o n d e:

lost tribe!
  4:47pm Cheri Pi:

The Iceage diaspora is very intriguing, I'll have to find some Jackman and what was the other one?
  4:48pm BT:

I think I had the Frenz Experiment on tape....working at Wall To Wall Sound desperate to buy anything not horrible that came in...
  4:49pm George of Troy:

Thanks for an awesome show, guys!
  4:50pm dw:

Ryan, are there any vinyl plans for York Factory Complaint?
  4:52pm Ryan M.:

@dw...Dais plans on doing a YFC vinyl LP in an edition of 100...only vinyl plans I am aware of.
  4:53pm dw:

100 - ZAP! Sounds great, thanks!
  4:57pm Say 10:

Tapes about being afraid of Satan were a dime a dozen, but I doubt a single CD about fear of Satan was ever made. The cassette era was a simpler era with simpler irrational fears.
  4:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Oops, the apocalypse is happening, I guess playing the Church of Satan tape was the last straw...
  5:10pm dw:

I got the new De Trop cd-r, the first for Robert & Leopold, are there some plans for more non-cassette releases? All my questions are non-tape; tapes rule of course!
  5:11pm cee dubbles:

Was enjoying the polyharmonic overtones of the ambiance you were playing after the Satan Rock - then I realized I'd hit mute by mischance and it was just my work!
  5:14pm Ike:

Great sounds.
Love cassettes.
Turn Ryan's mic up pls.
  5:18pm f u t u r e <> b l o n d e:

clean up on aisle thirteen...
  5:19pm Matt from Springfield:

I agree Ike!
  5:19pm bill:

These dial tones are pretty harsh
  5:21pm other david:

phreaking awesome
  5:30pm frak:

beautiful zen acid rain
  5:33pm BZ:

This show is always on point, but today it is out of this world. Six-hundred cheers!
  5:35pm trolly mctrollerson:

i'm 12 years old and what is this.
  5:37pm northguineahills:

gonna that cassette store in greenpoint later this week...
  5:37pm ning nong:

  5:38pm Chris from DC:

Digging Etat Des Stocks mightily.
  5:40pm Matt from Springfield:

That sounded like me, when I go over the keyboard searching for a melody, but no melody in particular...
  5:41pm Chris from DC:

Yes, Matt, I know the feeling.
  5:43pm Matt from Springfield:

@Chris: Ha ha, easier for me to do on a keyboard than a guitar!
@BZ: Are you Bill Zurat? You put together a fine show!
  5:46pm Lactose:

Just looked up Lord Foul on Metal Archives after it was mentioned on here and realized that dude ripped me off in a distro trade back in the early 90's when he was Son of Dog. I think I deserve a free copy of this reissue! haha
  5:50pm Matt from Springfield:

Ohhhhh, it's the UNDERcharged meridians that lead to the NUMBER function! Silly me, now I realize what I've been doing wrong!
  5:51pm Matt from Springfield:

"AccuPuncture" would be a great metal band name, unfortunately only those who use the AccuPlaylists would get it...
  5:52pm Matt from Springfield:

Bernd SENF?? Is that seriously his name??
In German that would mean "Bernard Mustard"!!!
  5:57pm BT:

Thanks for listening all....thx Ryan, killer bag o tape today!
  5:58pm Nathan:

I'd have to say that on the 'dog' scale of how much time my dog has spent in the room rather than in the bedroom cowering, is a new low for a WFMU program. On the other hand, I'm enjoying it. The dog.. not so much.
  5:59pm f u t u r e <> b l o n d e:

cant hear yall!
  5:59pm f u t u r e <> b l o n d e:

ahhh disregard -
  5:59pm dw:

Thank you!
  5:59pm Matt from Springfield:

What more can I say? FANTASTIC show, and very enjoyable as Ryan promised! Along with Tom Lax (upcoming!), I certainly hope Ryan becomes a regular guest of the show! Thank you much!

Good evening to you all!
  6:03pm Ryan M.:

Thanks everyone, had a lot of fun...see you guys next year!
  6:03pm conrad:

Wilhelm Reich: Discoverer of Acupuncture Energy ?
that'll be news to the Chinese...
  3:46pm Bud Styple:

miketp - I'd like to get some copies of my old shows. What can I do ? My email is budmon@tampabay.rr.com
  4:25pm Mr Personage:

I know it's, like weeks after the fact, but that Femminieli song is the cat's pajamas.
