Options Brian Turner: Playlist from September 27, 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.

The Ex  Live from Butlins Resort, All Tomorrows Parties, Minehead UK   Options     December, 2010: from the circus-tent atmosphere of All Tomorrows Parties at the Butlins resort in Minehead, England, Brian brought back assorted live recordings that will be popping up in the weeks ahead on various WFMU shows. The Godspeed You Black Emperor-curated weekend featured a lineup that included the likes of Cluster, Black Dice, and Neurosis to, amazingly enough, Weird Al Yankovic, but it was Holland's legendary Ex that got even the resort workers to stop dead in their tracks while they played. For over 30 years the anarchic punk band has roamed a wilderness of free sounds that have included collaborations with everyone from Tom Cora, Han Bennink, Getatchew Mekuria and more; they've performed live on Brian's show in 2006 previously, and headlined an incredible WFMU 50th Anniversary show in 2008 live at Lincoln Center that brought over an arsenal of kindred spirit Ethiopian musicians. Today's broadcast from Minehead showcases new singer/guitarist Arnold deBoer and finds the Ex as a quartet in total attack mode! Many thanks to Scott Williams for the multitrack post mix. More info at the Ex's site. Special thanks to Deb and Barry from ATP and the Ex for access to the festival and recordings.    2:04:30 (Pop‑up)

  3:11pm fossil:

all new*music never gets old.
  3:11pm Cheri Pi:

  3:11pm BTH:

You have got to be F'n kidding me. This is such crap. A further blight on Lou's career.
  3:12pm BZ:

This is the track they played on The View, or did I get that wrong?
  3:13pm Carmichael:

Hiya, BT. Hey everyone else.
  3:13pm Frisco Kid:

This is terrible. I would much rather hear Metallica go crazy on Sweet Jane et al.
  3:13pm paul:

this exists..
  3:13pm efd:

If nothing else I'm grateful for the opportunity to hear this without any effort on my part.
  3:13pm bill:

Thanks for playing this track, BT, I've been looking ford to it a long time
  3:14pm St.Even of Denver:

This is quite possibly the best show in the world.
  3:14pm glenn:

it is pretty crappy. it seemed like such a good idea, too.
  3:14pm Mike East:

I can't think of a studio session that I'd rather NOT sit in on. I gotta say, however, this sounds like exactly what it is.
  3:15pm paul:

kind of wish i was in high school again just to see a bunch of kids try to actually like this
  3:15pm mick:

haha...lou`s metal vocals....
  3:15pm bill:

Wait, who's the table?
  3:15pm Brass Knuckles:

sounds like when WFMU djs do the fundraiser show with a full on backup band.
  3:16pm paul:

stil better than the song they did with marianne faithfull...
  3:16pm Jeff D:

I've heard worse. Is it really that bad?
  3:16pm still b/p:

I thought someone was gettin' spoofy widdit. My goodness. I see Lou and the band on Honda scooters.
  3:16pm glenn:

playing music is fun, the process of making records sucks.
  3:16pm W i L d N e i l:

so negative, it sucks.
  3:16pm Carmichael:

Embarrassing ...
  3:16pm W i L d N e i l:

This song is cool...
  3:17pm Marmalade Kitty:

I'd like to see Lou perform this song live..scary and funny at the same time!l like it :)
  3:17pm bill:

This is the subtext of the previous song
  3:18pm St.Even of Denver:

I was weirded out by hearing Metallica on some telethon last year on TV giving props to the Kinks and playing a song live with Ray Davies
  3:18pm bill:

I was a table before you were a table
  3:19pm St Anger:

St. Even - that was the RR hall of fame induction
  3:19pm Frisco Kid:

Metallica needs to start drinking Jaeger again.
  3:20pm dc pat:

excellent, that has to be one of the most obnoxious songs ever..
  3:20pm W i L d N e i l:

This show is just ....wacky ! Cool!
  3:20pm glenn:

really? since the kinks are the greatest rock band of all time, i'm not surprised at all.
  3:21pm austin:

Tex-ass Rules!
  3:21pm Domenic:

I like this version
  3:21pm Brass Knuckles:

Did Metallica choose to do a cover of Phenomenal Cat?
  3:22pm still b/p:

It's Good Eno Covers Day.
  3:22pm dc pat:

glenn is right you know..
  3:23pm W i L d N e i l:

Props to the Kinks!
  3:24pm W i L d N e i l:

Hollywood Blvd...great tune!
  3:24pm Carmichael:

Glenn is 100% spot on.
  3:25pm tony:

I'm waiting for Leonard Cohen backed by Slayer.
  3:25pm Cheri Pi:

On the most part, Lou/Metallica has managed to offend those who cannot be offended.
  3:26pm Marmalade Kitty:

I agree with you guys
  3:27pm Cheri Pi:

Gorgoroth doing one of those post-mortem duets (Al la Nat Cole) with HarryNilllson.
  3:27pm Carmichael:

I heard Aaron Neville is jamming with Insane Clown Posse.
  3:28pm das:

Golgoroth put the lime in the coconut
  3:29pm glenn:

celine dion is in rehearsals with buckets of god.
  3:30pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

why not go reverse and have Josh Groban do a post mortem with GG Allin?
  3:30pm still b/p:

That's the second time Lou has disappointed me. Saw him in '76 or '77, and for a live show it was a yawn.
  3:31pm still b/p:

..So I'll be ready if he wants to disappoint me again in 2046.
  3:31pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

s b/p, that's probably when he had the two rock guitar gods thing going ala Lynyrd Skynyrd. That just seemed wrong to me.
  3:32pm Cheri Pi:

This is my first Lou Reed disappointment, and it stings. it really does.
  3:32pm ex-girlfriend:

Mash up EX with Madonna.
  3:32pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey Brian, everyone!

Looks like I missed a furor over a Lou Reed/Metallica mix! And "W i L d N e i l" seems even more W i L d today!
  3:33pm Domenic:

ahhh...he's just a dude from Long Island....it's gonna be ok
  3:33pm Cheri Pi:

After the Kinks, Watery Love is the best rock band on earth. I hope Metallica doesn't come knocking on their door.
  3:33pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I think Neil put a double-meth creamer in his coffee today
  3:34pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

don't worry, Cheri, they probably don't even have a door to knock on
  3:34pm glenn:

didn't skynyrd have three guitarists?
  3:34pm Frisco Kid:

Four words I never wanted to read: Nancy Grace Wardrobe Malfunction. Thanks, Internet.
  3:36pm My Buddy:

  3:36pm glenn:

au contraire, cheri pi. after the kinks, moby grape is the best rock band on earth. 40 years after their demise and all.
  3:37pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

yeah, glenn, but the approach was pretty similar on that live Lou Reed album with Steve Hunter and...who else...not willing to google...
  3:37pm Carmichael:

Yes Glenn, Skynyrd had 3 guitars, 4 less than Molly Hatchet.
  3:39pm Cheri Pi:

thankfully Skip Spence is safe from the clutches of James Hetfield.
  3:39pm Marmalade Kitty:

I wish i'd got to see the Ramones more than aything..I think
  3:40pm glenn:

two should be enough. actually, moby grape had three guitarists too. hmmmmm. i am hoist on my own petard. i think skip would have scared the shit out of james hetfield, actually.
  3:41pm Cheri Pi:

It's a shame then, that Skip cant out an end to Jame's duet-hungry bloodlust.
  3:42pm Cheri Pi:

"don't DUET me bro!"
  3:43pm Cheri Pi:

Hey, is this the same band Christmas that might have opened for Husker Du in the 80's?
  3:45pm BT:

prolly? Boston. Pre-Combustible Edison members. James from Yo La Tengo was in there at one point too.
  3:45pm Frisco Kid:

Yep Cheri, same band. Saw 'em in the 80s.
  3:46pm BSI:

...that's 4 less Petards than Christ on a Crutch...... what?
  3:46pm bill:

Lou Reed with Steve Wagner etc was a yawn? That was probably the same lineup as R&R Animal, an absolute knock out live album

  4:10pm BSI:

sudden infant down here was a brain roaster.
  4:12pm Fugeesus:

Mista mista
Can I get five dollars
So I can get something to eat
Hell no motherfucka
You can't get no money from me
Cause everytime I give you a dollar
You go get shot up with more and more needles
And you tell me that you're drug free
Drug free
  4:12pm Matt from Springfield:

King Tubby! He's the man when it comes to dub.
  4:15pm Matt from Springfield:

What are RPMs, anyway?

"WFMU: Where the stated RPMs are 'suggestions', if that."
  4:17pm "Bob":

May I recommend the 78 today?
  4:17pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

Matt, you can't be Sirius.
  4:21pm bill:

love that guy
  4:22pm probably:

Rosie Perez Measurements.
  4:23pm Carmichael:

Regurgitations per Mastications.
  4:23pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: You're the one who's not fond of dub, I take it? ;)

Brian played a lot of it during Singles Going Steady--some of us enjoyed that, other not so much. But I loved the chance to hear some on this show!
  4:26pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I know dub from bud but that's about IT
  4:26pm glenn:

really putrid mastodons.
  4:27pm Cheri Pi:

Drakar = noir.
  4:29pm Sly & Robbie:

  4:31pm Matt from Springfield:

S&R: I'm a huge fan of both of you, as well!
  4:32pm the glowing one:

Jabladav... that was horribly bad.
  4:33pm Cheri Pi:

Jabladav sounded like a lonely, misunderstood Count Dracula type.
  4:35pm Matt from Springfield:

  4:36pm bill:

Video hell!
  4:37pm alice:

death may be black meddle santa clause.
  4:38pm bill:

Oh Christ, more metallica...
  4:38pm Nordens fåglar:

A Cooper, scary stuff; same day I bought the killer-album I got a serious cold with fever, and every time (even now) I hear this track i get pseudo-sick (sick)
  4:45pm the glowing one:

I'm having a vision of 80s type figures in freaky black and white costumes moving spastically on stage and hitting their synthizers while performing this song... "8"
  4:49pm W i L d N e i l:

This song hurts.
  4:51pm the glowing one:

</ultural pessimism mode>yep, that has been done better in the early 90s when it was new</cultural pessimism mode>
  4:53pm the glowing one:

copy and paste fail :( wouldn't have happened back when there wasn't copy and paste
  5:00pm Frisco Kid:

Hooray for Supreme Dicks! Nice guys, great music.
  5:01pm Nordens fåglar:

"copy and paste fail :( wouldn't have happened back when there wasn't copy and paste"
True enlightenment! (but it worked for med)
  5:01pm W i L d N e i l:

  5:02pm Nordens fåglar:

fail: med=me
  5:04pm bill:

When's weird al, seriously?
  5:06pm the glowing one:

@Nordens fåglar: reassuring to see that ordinary typos still exist and always will :D
  5:09pm Unclear on the concept:

Cool -- they have rides at Butlins Resort!
  5:10pm jaycjay:

But there's been copy-and-paste, and potential related fail, since the first time a "xerox machine" was used in conjunction with scissors and... paste.
  5:10pm BT:

Weird Al, while professing his fandom for WFMU (loves Scharpling!), didnt give us recording permish, the stage setup was like, as complex as My Bloody Valentine's....
  5:13pm bill:

thx BT :(
  5:16pm Parq:

In fairness to Al, since most of his act involves parodies of copyrighted songs, he's probably not in a position legally to grant broadcast authority. Some of the parodies he proforms on stage can't even be used on his recordings.
  5:17pm bill:

MBV didn't give permission either as I remember. Something about complex stage setups?
  5:28pm jeff-m:

sounds great man
  5:29pm moose:

sounds great! the ex w/ tom cora at maxwell's years ago was one of the best shows i ever seen- anyone remember that?
  5:31pm Parq:

Does anybody know if the bass player on this date is the one who played with them at that '08 Lincoln Center show? That guy was the heart and the soul of the band that night.
  5:33pm BT:

Colin played bass at Lincoln Center but Andy doubled up on baritone guitar for this set (Colin also doubles on sound, he was a Dog Faced Herman too)
  5:42pm moose:

dog faced hermans also did killer shows back then- i've just learned that this all happened 20 years ago? gulp
  5:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks for introducing me to The Ex! Now I know "X", and "The Ex"!!

Have a great night!
  6:02pm Emile:

Thanks Brian, you can never have too much Ex.
