Options Brian Turner: Playlist from September 18, 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.

Your station for Stationer!
Hi Brian!

Waitaminnit, you were with Robert Cray on your b'day?
Avatar 3:14pm BT:

  3:16pm DCE:

hey guyz
  3:20pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey DCE, HW, CP, t, all of you other letters!
  3:20pm Honey Water:

  3:21pm DCE:

we are the world's most potent alphabet soup, I'd wager
  3:24pm Stanley:

This must be one of the creepiest tracks I ever heard! Hi Brian. Its almost unbearable.
  3:26pm Honey Water:

Apparently soup potent enough to be chewed.
  3:28pm DCE:

who's chewin who, Honey?
  3:29pm Honey Water:

Language Removal Services it sounded like.
  3:34pm Marmalade Kitty:

that chewin..sounded disgusting! I've heard it somewhere before..maybe Airborne event?
  3:35pm Matt from Springfield:

@HW: MFS for right now! (I'm hoping "MathU" for later today :)
Speaking of letters, MK!
  3:36pm jt:

my favorite part about that SCG track is that every time i here it, i think the girl is from a "mic in trac" recording
  3:38pm Honey Water:

MFS sounds like Minister of Foreign Services or the like -- and you're in the right region for such a title.
  3:40pm Honey Water:

You could be the MFS stationed in London and minister to MK. ;)
  3:43pm Carmichael:

Hiya BT. Psychin' out to the Trackman!
  3:45pm Matt from Springfield:

LRS! You called it, Honey!

The MFS stationed in London, to meet with Manchester's Kitty (MK)!
  3:46pm Matt from Springfield:

ZZ Top is BACK! Was that a great show, Brian?

Hi Carm!
  3:47pm Carmichael:

Hey there MfS.

BT, did you go see ZZ? Were you a sharp dressed man?
Avatar 3:47pm BT:

It was amazing.
  3:48pm Honey Water:

Either I occasionally heard purring sounds during BT's talkover or my Squeezebox is coming to life.

[Ooops, sorry about that, MFS -- a quick relocation up to Manchester then]
  3:49pm bennett4senate:

I really want to know the story about how ZZ ended up covering a Lil' Keke track... are ZZ from Houston as well? Or is this some weird old classic I don't know?
  3:49pm Cheri Pi:

  3:51pm Bas, NL:

Postman just made a late evening special delivery as he thought it might be something special... YES!!!! WFMU SWAG!!! :D
  3:52pm bennett4senate:

fyi: http://youtu.be/gfcNMQpXhMc
  3:52pm Carmichael:

Yep, ZZ Top is from Houston.
  3:53pm jmr3:

They are indeed from Houston. That's why they sound so humid. They're not from Dallas, that's for sure.
  3:54pm Cheri Pi:

hahahaha. this is so funny-!!
  3:54pm Honey Water:

@Bas: Now *that's* the proper way for mail carriers to go postal -- how nice of him!
  3:54pm joe_p:

"Stop Sign Minus The S" !!!
  3:55pm Stanley:

@Bas - that's one nice postman you got. Hope you got your tee shirt on right now.
  3:56pm Matt from Springfield:

To be fair, Jon Glaser's Dad was Under Pressure.
  3:57pm adam:

Delocated is the best comedy show on television.
  3:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Hooray Bas! :D
  4:01pm Bas, NL:

@Stanley" My adoptive DJ Keili's tee, yes!!! It's awesome! And my postman is a real cool guy; and he always brings in the new music.. so i'm always a greatfull receiver!
  4:01pm Matt from Springfield:

"Dessert Topping", sounds like a "Cheap Sunglasses"-era ZZ Top song title...
  4:02pm Matt from Springfield:

@joe_p: You also called it!! :)
  4:04pm Cheri Pi:

I wore my DJ Keili shirt this weekend :)
  4:08pm Amazon.com:

Customers Who Bought ZZ Top, "La Futura", Also Bought:
Soulfusious, "The Very Best Of".
  4:09pm Bas, NL:

@Cheri Pi: It's great isn't it? And one is instantly recognizable wearing it! ;)
  4:13pm Cheri Pi:

Yes Bas-I especially love the fit of it, very feminine in my case.
  4:13pm Matt from Springfield:

Old Time American Woman!!
  4:15pm joe_p:

@Matt from Springfield one of my favorite comedy bits of all time. i must have listened to that 100+ times
  4:15pm Stanley:

That Beefheart cover certainly kicked some ass!!
  4:18pm Carmichael:

Speaking of killer concerts, I saw Devo last Friday. Yes, Devo. They slayed.
  4:18pm Marmalade Kitty:

@CP; I didn't get mine :( just the dvd??
  4:18pm BSI:

Great bubbling biscuit humpers, I need regular employment (mit der headphones & streaming capabilities) again ASAP: I can't afford to miss Zoogz Rift anymore.
  4:18pm DCE:

do they still have the Eliminator car and those girls? They must be middle-aged women by now.
  4:19pm Cheri Pi:

were the effects built in to the speaker thingies???
  4:21pm Cheri Pi:

  4:24pm Mike East:

too bad record donations are just for cool eclectic records. I've got some lame boring records that I'd like to get rid of...sorry Donna Summer and The Police - I'm looking in your direction.
  4:26pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow x2!
#1: A cover of The Beatles "Girl" from Rubber Soul--never heard one before!
#2: NOH MERCY covering The Beatles "Girl"!!
  4:26pm BSI:

@Mike East: Even those can sound OK at 16RPM with tasteful applications of tremolo & reverb added for color...
  4:27pm Matt from Springfield:

Hey Mike. I believe the donated records will be sold at the fair, and profits donated to FMU.
Isn't that how it goes BT?
  4:28pm Matt from Springfield:

KENZO name check in Noh Mercy! All the way back in the 70s too! Your greatness was prophecized even then...!
  4:30pm mo:

serge lutens, guy bourdin, jean charles de castelbajac - now yer talkin!
  4:31pm Melanie Safka:

I don't eat kids, and they don't eat me.
  4:31pm Honey Water:

Omnivore's eating habits could result in an irritable vowel syndrome.
  4:33pm EAL:

These tracks are righteous BT. Jason Forrest is rocking my world
  4:35pm Matt from Springfield:

@HW: The word "facetiously" is the longest English word with all the vowels, in their alphabetical order. That would have: orderly vowel syndrome.
  4:37pm DCE:

boy the server sucks today, all the words are just a smear
  4:37pm Honey Water:

@Matt: And Automobile Insurance is a phrase that has aeiou twice and twice only. [Will be interesting if anyone commenting gets that timely reference]
  4:39pm DCE:

whoa Matt! stop being facetious!
  4:39pm Loren:

hey listeners, BT... nothing better than picking up the headphones with someone singing about robot children!
  4:40pm BSI:

god, this Robot Children track is ace. It would seem to DEMAND a Jobs For America track to follow it! But then, this here is wonderful as well. Do carry on...
  4:40pm Honey Water:

@Loren: At least robot children will not be eaten by Barry Louis Polisar.
  4:42pm tim from champaign:

I got this comp!
  4:44pm joe_p:

Cassettencombinat is by far my favorite VOD box set. not one bad track
  4:46pm Matt from Springfield:

Whoa, these Ectoplasm Girls are interesting.
  4:47pm Loren:

pretty out of control... nice.
  4:47pm DCE:

from that to an acoustically strummed Gsus chord...Brian makes the world go round.
  4:47pm Matt from Springfield:

If the Ectoplasm Girls wanted to make a video out of this, it would have to be anime--no way to do this without anime.

Speaking of which, 70s sounding Japanese chanteuse!
  4:48pm DCE:

think she was influenced by Joni Mitchell?
  4:49pm Stanley:

@Matt: There's this guy, walking down the street and he sees a signwriter working on a sign for a Fish and Chips shop. He notices something amiss and says to the signwriter "the spaces between the words "fish" and "and" and "and" and chips are not right! Ha ha - a sentence with five "ands" in a row.

(I'll get my coat)
  4:49pm Honey Water:

@DCE: Sure sounds like it.
  4:50pm paul:

  4:50pm EAL:

  4:51pm Cheri Pi:

The delivery is indecent!
  4:52pm paul:

i keep thinking my copy of the 45 is warped when the background singers come in, but no, that's how it actually sounds
  4:52pm DCE:

gotta fly gotta fly goodbye goodbye
  4:53pm common:

seasons in the sun is the most depressing song ever...I agree.
  4:53pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: The vocal is nice singer-songwriter, but the country-ish tone was probably influenced by Joni, and/or Patti Dahlstrom, like somewhere in between.

And that was Gsus? I love suspended chords!
  4:53pm paul:

rod mckuen wrote the english lyrics, the terry jacks version is pretty tame lyrically compared to the original french lyrics by jacques brel
  4:53pm jt:

that song promised a lot of double entendre and i got was some dead dog dedication... fuck snuggles!. no.. . wait...
  4:53pm northguineahills:

Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo. There.
  4:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Ah, that was the "Seasons In The Sun" B-side!
Jacques Brel wrote, Rod McKuen translated the English lyrics in the early 60s.

@Stanley: And and and and and have a great day!
Take care DCE too!
  4:54pm Honey Water:

@DCE: Honor your Urge for Going.
  4:55pm Honey Water:

Backup, backup -- PK Dick and Sachiko? Whoa, now that's a *very* interesting factoid, BT. TY!
  4:56pm Honey Water:

Dick (PK, that is) is responsible for getting Philo and me together. Busy man A.D. as B.D.
  4:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Philip the K!
(I was wondering at first just who (or what) you meant! ;)
  5:09pm Kenzo (lastever):

MATT from Springfield name check in the volunteer room!
  5:11pm Honey Water:

Yep, PK Dick, the big "beefsteak tomato orbiting the Earth".
  5:11pm dw:

  5:12pm barb:

Weird indeed. Fully sick, as the yoofs like ta say.
  5:12pm Matt from Springfield:

I'm honored Kenzo! Thank YOU for all you do!
  5:12pm northguineahills:

There needs to be more 7"s like this Gustafsson et al...
  5:19pm Lucas:

Hello Brian and dear listeners!
  5:26pm Matt from Springfield:

Hello dear Lucas!
  5:28pm Lucas:

HI Matt!
  5:35pm mark from VT:

pretty good show today and I happened to be inside to hear the show this afternoon. cause of the crazy weather. I went up stairs, took off my new wfmu biker shirt, and put on the BT t-shirt. Now in the kitchen and the shirt can continue to get food stains on it.
Avatar 5:39pm BT:

Slop that thing up!
  5:42pm Lucas:

BT: Great!!! Moon Duo will play in your show!!!!
  5:45pm Matt from Springfield:

Oh, I remember another DJ mentioning that "unmentionable" album title! Sounds like a good album.

@mark: Your other shirts are so much cleaner too, I bet! The BT shirt is like a magnet and attracts all the other stains!
  5:46pm Lucas:

I don't even use my terre t apron!!
  5:48pm Ed Gein:

That gives me an idea...
  5:49pm Lucas:

once someone spilled red wine on my WF MU tshir and I was very upset and then sad
  5:50pm Matt from Springfield:

BBJr friggin' RAWKS! Woooohooooooo!
  5:53pm Matt from Springfield:

"Terre's Cherries" apron can be used to present food to guests, while the BT t-shirt gets the stains while actually working on the food!

@Lucas: That would make me sad, since I couldn't wear it to shows anymore without getting the stain out. But you can still wear it around the house. It's a metaphor for WFMU--the world throws what it will at it, but WFMU keeps moving along!
  5:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Gay Witch Abortion! Everybody clap!
  5:55pm northguineahills:

Thanks for making it a fun and nearly stormy afternoon!
  5:56pm Matt from Springfield:

SWEET! Excellent show Brian, thanks!
Have a good evening, everybody!
  5:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Wonderful "purrs" to fade out on...
  6:05pm Phil:

Is that the sound of a boomerang cutting off a man's fingertips?
  6:46pm Phil in Cali:

"Seeking a Friend for the End of the World" is a great little film. The end-of-the-world movie for chicks! And I loved it.
  4:58pm Philip:

This is so awful that I find it difficult to turn off.
