Options Brian Turner: Playlist from August 27, 2013 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.

Avatar 3:28pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Interesting phrase there, "leader of the free world." Kind of self-contradictory, no?

Does Denise have any good NO or Tactics stories?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm common:

lots of foisting.
Avatar 3:47pm Cecile:

Were you guys way more popular in NZ and overseas than here?
How happy were you when the first Dead C record came out?
Avatar 3:48pm jljl:

Lopez, how do you know I'm a Patriots fan? While I have a soft spot for TT, I'd rather he be on someone else's team.
Avatar 3:50pm Cecile:

If we wouldn't have turned a blind eye in '88 to poison-gassing Kurds in Iraq and Turkey, bet we wouldn't be having this problem now.

jljl - just joking about where to find iron virgin 7" is all

I want dirt on Tactics and NO now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm Carmichael:

I remember seeing *Sir* Quentin Crisp on TV in the ate 60s. What's his claim to fame?
Avatar 3:58pm Cecile:

pretty much being Quentin Crisp, and having a way with a one-liner.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm Carmichael:

Cecile, the FOTC song The Humans Are Dead would sadly fit in to the conversation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- famously Out in Britain when it was prob. still actually illegal there...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59pm Carmichael:

Oh, and that WAS funny, Lopez!
Avatar 4:00pm Cecile:

Carm, very true!

Hey everyone, they are touring with Dave Chappell. If you can make the Oddball Comedy Festival, it looks great: also Kristin Schaal, Hannibal Burress, and Demetri Martin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm Andrew Waterloo:

I keep thinking about the song VX Gas Attack when I read about Syria. I feel weird about that.
Avatar 4:03pm Cecile:

As I am going to school, have new siding and dental work in my life, I cannot go see my beloved Conchords.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...they could do a great song about that C'ec...
Avatar 4:05pm Cecile:

but since I am not being gassed by my own people, it is a great damn day in the neighborhood.
Avatar 4:08pm Cecile:

rock on Cheri!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08pm Wretch:

re: the tour. Some friends went in Austin and did not have a good time. A lot had to do with the venue, but Chappell didn't bring his A game. Conchords were good, though.
Avatar 4:10pm Cecile:

Oh, that sucks, wretch.
But at least the lads were entertaining.
Avatar 4:11pm glenn:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15pm efd:

It's not so great. The music is better than the movie.

This must be their big power ballad.

- yar - hear the Suicide in this one...not too many can take that influence on...
Avatar 5:27pm Cecile:

Look farther up.

I have another one - who is your favorite current performer?
Avatar 5:29pm Cecile:

Do you think people like the Scientists lifted their later sound from you and Suicide?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...oddly, I can hear the 13th Floor Elevators in it too - since their wiki mentions TX 60sPunk as an influence...
