Options Brian Turner: Playlist from June 26, 2012 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.

Black Dice  Live in the WFMU Studio   Options Engineered by Ernie Indradat and Justin Coletti    From their early days of post-hardcore, barstool-throwing shenanigans to today's forays into introspective, psychedelic junkyard dub, the NYC-based Black Dice has made quite a name for themselves as large scale explorers of electronic alchemy. Their latest release Mr. Impossible finds them more at ease than ever in condensing a wide array of strange sounds into a compressed grid of structured compositions, still leaving room to bug out into expansive brain-frying jams. Black Dice = Aaron Warren, Bjorn Copeland, Eric Copeland. Thanks to the band for an amazing session, and thanks to Justin Greeley, Ernie and Justin C.

Listener comments!

  3:04pm DCE:

great leadoff track, Mr BT.
  3:05pm Cheri Pi:

Hard to believe this is a currentish band-they sound like they could have been buds w/ Pentagram.
  3:05pm superhate:

Bonjour My Black Dice's Family!!!!......from Chao David between Beijing and Paris....see you the 13th of september with everything.....

  3:07pm Quasar:

Though this Wicked Lady track is primitive, there is a fundamental quality to the composition that is quite effective and pleasing.
  3:07pm Emily:

this is a great song
  3:07pm DCE:

plus killer guitar tone...that's 90% of the battle.
  3:09pm Cheri Pi:

It's getting funky in here.
  3:11pm Quasar:

The treble overload and speed variation of this Bee Gee's cover screams Realistic Normal-Bias Cassette.
  3:11pm woo:

Found this: WICKED LADY was a hard rock trio formed in the late 60's who were famous for outrageous, drug & alcohol fueled live shows. The band was popular with drop-outs & bikers & after a few minutes you'll realize why
  3:11pm BSI:

goddammit they're right. I SHOULD be dancing.
  3:13pm dc pat:

I should be doing ANYthing other than what I'm doing..
  3:14pm Matt from Springfield:

"Iron Knowledge"--what a positive, education encouraging, metal encouraging band name for the kids. Wish we had more names like them.
  3:14pm Quasar:

Singer sounds a little like Ted Taylor of Ronn Records fame.
  3:16pm dc pat:

how'd you like to be the dude who just does the wiggly guitar note the whole song? I would...
  3:16pm Cheri Pi:

Agreed-Matt from Springfield
  3:18pm Matt from Springfield:

Heavy 60s/60s-ish rock and soul to start off today.

@Cheri: PSA idea: "Knowledge is IRON!!!" (smash)
  3:19pm dc pat:

what are some more positive names? Anvil of Arithmetic? Studying Hardcore? Gods of Good Behavior? cracking myself up..
  3:20pm Names:

Love. It's A Beautiful Day.
  3:21pm Cheri Pi:

Metal is Mightier than the sword!
  3:21pm still b/p:

  3:23pm Ray:

E for Effort - Bootstraps - Excel - Powerjoy - Earnest Mann - Samaritan
  3:23pm DCE:

you guys are good.
  3:23pm DCE:

Slayer of Ignorance. Anthrax of...well that won't work.
  3:24pm Matt from Springfield:

Good one Cheri Pi! Lot of good ideas.

"Gods of Good Behavior" is a bit too ironic though! You'd imagine the drunkest, roughest band calling themselves that.
  3:25pm dc pat:

Life Grips
  3:27pm Cecile:

I vote Anvil of Arithmatic.
  3:29pm Cecile:

Or Anthrax of Illiteracy.
  3:29pm DCE:

to balance out St Vitus's cosmic doom, there should be a peaceful St Francis of Assisi
  3:29pm still b/p:

  3:30pm Matt from Springfield:

Ha ha, "Saint Vitus", and "Saint Francis of Assisi"; next month on Brian Turner's show...
  3:30pm DCE:

it's not PORN, still b/p
  3:31pm dc pat:

Anthrax of Apple Polishers
  3:32pm DCE:

Rainbow Sabbath
  3:33pm DCE:

...of Diversity
  3:33pm BSI:

Seeing Van der Graaf tomorrow in DC! WHEEEEHA!
  3:33pm BSI:

...what a classic wedding anniversary gift, eh? EHHNH?!?!?
  3:34pm Ray:

Peanut Sceptre - Toilet Fork
  3:34pm George of Troy:

Just saw VdGG last Saturday in Sellersville PA. Amazing set... Highly recommended if you have the opportunity to catch them.
  3:35pm dc pat:

Rainbow Sabbath of Diversity wins although Toilet Fork is funny as hell for some reason
  3:35pm Matt from Springfield:

That was a great live show in Ghana--Doug S. recently featured a bunch of those songs on his "Live in Africa" episode.
  3:35pm Cecile:

you can't give away Van Der Graaf?
The fundraiser is a raffle, ya know.
  3:36pm Matt from Springfield:

@dc pat: Toilet Fork is great--I never ever thought of that imagery before, so points for originality!
  3:36pm Matt from Springfield:

And whaddaya know....Number of the Beast on that last "Toilet Fork" one!!
  3:39pm DCE:

but how does Toilet Fork encourage the metal youth to aspire to their whatever whatever whatever....
  3:40pm Van in DC:

Hi there Brian and folks
  3:41pm BuBBa:

  3:41pm dc pat:

DCE: that's why Toilet Fork doesn't win.

"..and on Wednesday night, it's Van Der Graaf Generator playing with--well look at this--Toilet Fork! They're back together??..."
  3:41pm Matt from Springfield:

Weirdest skit in the background. Sounds like an over-caffeinated late night high school sketch I would have written.
  3:42pm Matt from Springfield:

And hello Van, and any other folks.
  3:42pm liner notes:

"We always say, choose the right utensil for whatever's in your bowl."
  3:42pm Toilet Cork:

Tungsten .... something tungsten.
  3:43pm BuBBa:

The Critical Thinkers
  3:43pm Matt from Springfield:

English dubbed kung fu, figures :)
  3:43pm Van in DC:

Heya Matt!

Um. Have I got the correct audio stream going? :)
  3:43pm dc pat:

Tungsten Deafonator
  3:44pm Sean:

Wow, now I am going to have to watch Kung Fu Hustle.
  3:45pm Matt from Springfield:

"Michelle Obama spoke to America's students today on the importance of growing and eating kale, and listening to bands such as Rainbow Sabbath of Diversity and Toilet Fork."
  3:46pm dc pat:

  3:46pm Ludlow:

Six Flags Uber Alles
  3:47pm Chris from DC:

Cradle of Clealiness.
  3:49pm still b/p:

Unstoppable Blood Donors
  3:50pm DCE:

Cradle of Cleanliness would help teen mothers keep their babies fresh.
  3:50pm Ludlow:

The Beatless
  3:51pm BSI:

Talcum Carne
  3:52pm Cheri Pi:

There is a local band called Blood Drive, cookie monster rock naturally
  3:52pm Cheri Pi:

Kick out the jams, BT MF.
  3:53pm Fluff:

I knew a band called Nosmo King. Taken from a No Smoking sign.
  3:53pm Cheri Pi:

Sphinx Tush???!!!!
  3:54pm Chris from DC:

Chili con Carnage?
  3:54pm Ick:

That Sphinx Tush guitarist sounds Alvin Lee inspired.
  3:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Woooooohooooooo to Sphinx Tush!! Amazin' shreddin' goin' on here!

Pieces was great as well--a good transition, Brian.
  3:56pm Cheri Pi:

Can you be nominated for a great segue award? Pieces to Spinxh Tush deserves a Tony or something...
  3:56pm Matt from Springfield:

@Fluff: That's cool, like "Sean Connery" on SNL's Celebrity Jeopardy.
  3:58pm Matt from Springfield:

@Cheri: So many great ones on FMU, almost impossible to award best segue even of a week here. And BT certainly knows how to switch 'em.
  3:59pm Cheri Pi:

Jason S is another segue master.
  3:59pm Matt from Springfield:

One of my favorites was playing the loudest, incoherent hardcore, segued into Cockney Rebel! And the reverse, transitioning into that from Rupert Holmes!
  4:00pm dc pat:

.ooo, I must say "Bad Vibe City Arizona" once a week...
  4:00pm Him:

I was recently on the dunes of the cape and had a pina colada Rupert Holmes moment.
  4:03pm Howell IV:

Years ago, I wrote to Rupert Holmes on Myspace and he answered, thanking me for praising his song, "Letters That Cross In The Mail" and saying, "Thank you for mentioning something besides Escape (Pina Colada Song).
  4:05pm Matt from Springfield:

There have been a number of good Rupert Holmes songs, better than his mega-hits. Brian of course has played some, and the dark "Timothy" has gotten FMU airplay.
  4:07pm Cecile:

trouble was hitting a lot of good segs today.
  4:08pm Cheri Pi:

absolutely-Troubs was on fire today.
  4:10pm Matt from Springfield:

Old school jazz! this is a first (or at least a rarity) for BT!
  4:10pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey look, the Moon's turning blue...
  4:11pm paula pc:

Joe Maneri is only kind of old school...he's like avant-old-school!
  4:12pm Cecile:

nice Giant Sand tune.
  4:12pm Matt from Springfield:

@paula: I look forward to hearing more Maneri then, maybe I'll hear something more on the avant side!
  4:12pm Cecile:

kind of angular Ornette-Tristano kind of stuff, ITA Paula.
  4:15pm BSI:

ah Tucson... birthplace of Doo Rag, bless 'em...
  4:15pm Cecile:

HA called it.
  4:17pm dc pat:

Bob Log III?
  4:18pm Cheri Pi:

Bob Logic III, teach the kids how to program.
  4:18pm Walrushead:

No, you don't be takin my bukkit!
  4:19pm Cecile:

hahahahah, Cheri.
  4:19pm Matt from Springfield:

"The Life Sub-Aquatic with Science of the Sea", directed by Wes Anderson.
  4:19pm Cecile:

Sporty the War Bear!
  4:19pm dc pat:

ach, I gotta get outta here. I'll see you guys. Thanks Bri.
  4:19pm limbsoup:

whee live black dice in ten minutes :D
  4:20pm Howell IV:

Tucson - Gin Blossoms? I know Alice Cooper was from Phoenix -
Did anyone see Rock of Ages? It's getting bad reviews, but I thought it was really entertaining. Tom Cruise is fantastic in it. Alec Baldwin, too.
  4:20pm BSI:

Never heard much of Log III's solo stuff, but the Doo Rag stuff was omnipresent when I was out there. Worked a couple of blocks from the Toxic Shock record store, which meant precious little $$$ for, uh, FOOD, & stuff...
  4:20pm Cecile:

oh, Kung Fu Hustle is a great movie.
But the title is misleading. I'm told they didn't know what to call it, so they just made something up from the opening scene.
  4:20pm DCE:

later dcp
  4:21pm Cecile:

Alice Cooper is from the Detroit area. He did move to Arizona, though.

Tom Cruise is so vain that I think he would make a brilliant lead singer, Howell IV.
  4:21pm Cecile:

bye dcp!
  4:21pm Matt from Springfield:

Yay Ryan M! Love when he stops by, look forward to his Satchel o' Cassettes!
And Tom Lax!!! Party on!!
  4:22pm Matt from Springfield:

Peace out, dc pat.
  4:22pm Cecile:

tell Tom Lax to play the Sardine single again, Brian.
  4:23pm Howell IV:

He was really funny in it, Cecile. Good singer, too. Yeah, I knew Alice had Michigan roots. Sagamore, or something. I refuse to f'n Google.
  4:23pm Cecile:

  4:23pm DCE:

yeah, fuck google. am i right? probably not.
  4:24pm BSI:

Never Google. It leads to harder stuff. You see how the kids are.
  4:25pm DCE:

one day you're innocently googling things and the next you're whacked out on youtube and these "vimeos" they have now
  4:25pm Howell IV:

I just like to rely on my brain a bit more. I'll WIKI the crap out off something if need be, but just Googling everything ... something depressing and brain-deflating about it. I miss my Gremlin X. A clue as to my ancient Luddition tendencies.
  4:26pm Cecile:

damn, I'm not even that big of a Can-head and I might have to buy those lost tapes.
  4:26pm love:

  4:26pm Cecile:

I google, but I make up for it by posting tons of corrections to Allmusic. lol.
  4:27pm lee Dorsey:

Yes we can can
  4:27pm Howell IV:

Fricking Youtube, I spent the better part of MArch just watching Wishbone Ash on the Midnite Special. Corroded my Yang. I thought he said " Are You Waiting for the Sphincter. Jeez.
  4:27pm Matt from Springfield:

@Cecile: I like it--I vote this "mantra of the day".
  4:27pm The Pointer Sisters:

Yeah, what he said.
  4:28pm DCE:

I don't know much about allmusic.com, but I just went there...seems Blues Traveller is still a thing. When will this madness end?
  4:28pm Cecile:

hahhahaha Wishbone Ash.
this is the place to hear it, BT loves em.
  4:28pm Howell IV:

If John Popper plays that harmonica any faster, he'll explode.
  4:29pm BSI:

Considering a long-delayed public works project along H Street in northeast DC, why yes, I AM waiting for the streetcar, come to think of it.
  4:29pm Cecile:

are you waiting for the streaker?
  4:30pm Sean Daily:

  4:30pm Carmichael:

Good afternoon everyone. Hiya BT. Re: Wishbone Ash, what's not to like? Hair, guitars, feedback, drug use.
Avatar 4:30pm BT:

re: wishone ash that is correct
  4:30pm Howell IV:

Pre-Laurie Wisefeld I hope. It's all about Argus.
  4:30pm GM:

there is no such thing as a streetcar. please consider the 2013 Chevy Cruze instead.
  4:31pm Howell IV:

No Turner Bros. no Wishbone.
  4:31pm DCE:

how long did it take Sean Daily to type that mess?
  4:31pm Cecile:

I like Wishbone Four as well.
  4:32pm superhate:

WAITING FOR Black Dice.....
  4:33pm Howell IV:

Robert Henrit. Robert Henrit. Was he the Wishbone drummer? Somebody became the Kink's bassist. Umm ... damn .... wait .... I think he was from Argent. Sounds like Halford. No ..... it's all a blur now. To much useless lettuce opium.
  4:34pm DCE:

that's probably why we have google. so we can do more opium.
  4:34pm Mike East:

I wish I was in Can.
  4:35pm Chris from DC:

Is the rest of the box that great?
  4:36pm Personage:

Waaait a minute... A NEW Fushitsusha album?! I must have it. where can I find it?
  4:36pm Howell IV:

I wish Dennis DeYoung would rejoin Styx. I wish Peter Cetera would rejoin Chicago ... Morrissey would reunite The Smiths. ... Peter Banks would rejoin Flash ... Reunited Mahavishnu ... John Schlitt burying the hatchet with Head East.
  4:38pm Carmichael:

Now the Sutherland Bros & Quiver. That's what I miss about now. Damn Don Kirshner started it all for me, every Saturday Night.
  4:39pm Matt from Springfield:

Woooooo! Black Dice!!!!
  4:40pm DCE:

roll them bones
  4:43pm KP:

I saw the Tom Carter appeal on FB. He's affiliated with Austin and it was a guy from there who posted. Buy his band's CDs and others on label and it goes to him. http://helptomcarter.org/
  4:45pm Matt from Springfield:

"introspective, psychedelic junkyard dub", "large scale explorers of electronic alchemy", "brain-frying jams". Sounds about right to me. Incredible sound!
  4:54pm frizze:

crazy sounds, perhaps disturbing my mother-in-law
  4:56pm Carmichael:

Perfect music for maniacal high-speed keyboarding while in panic mode.
  4:56pm andymorphic:

caught their gig in toronto last month...great stuff
  4:57pm Cecile:

I think this sounds like a Specials CD caught in a garbage disposal. Pretty great.
  4:58pm Cecile:

I would love to see visuals.
  5:02pm still b/p:

Thissa good, but gotta go.
  5:03pm Melody:

Cecile, that's an amazing description.
  5:06pm emmagineering:

last time i saw bd there was huge video projection over the stage. pretty great... thanks dj bt
  5:06pm Cecile:

thanks, Melody.
  5:06pm Matt from Springfield:

See ya later b/p.
@Cecile: LOL!
  5:06pm limbsoup:

if you kids are into this, you should check out lamburg tony. i found out about him when eric released waco taco combo. escho did a special pairing of lamburg tony's hip hop nation with that release. check out this track when you get a chance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfC9p6X8Z_w
  5:13pm Carmichael:

Nice dice, BT.
  5:13pm northguineahills:

"Los Ninos Del Parque" mixes well into Depeche Mode's "Everything Counts in Hard Amounts" 12".
  5:20pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks guys, check's in the mail...
  5:26pm Matt from Springfield:

Singer sounds like Kirsty MacColl.
  5:27pm Matt from Springfield:

Ah, same era: usually considered C86/indie pop
  5:28pm Cecile:

  5:43pm Mott:

this reminds me alot of the band Atomic Rooster..
  5:48pm Matt from Springfield:

Manic organ!
  5:54pm Cecile:

That's Matthew Shipp?
  5:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Great Black Music Disaster!!
  5:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Brian!
Awesome show, (awesome segues!), and thanks to Black Dice and Ernie Indradat! Live sets ROCKIN as ever!
  10:09pm johN:
