Options Brian Turner: Playlist from June 20, 2017 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.

You had me at "Pull Down the Shades!" I've really been looking forward to this show - I've even done the pre-reading. Got Roger's book the day it came out.

Brian, what's the source for the Enemy & Tall Dwarfs live recordings?
Avatar 3:26pm Marshall Stacks:

When KFJC aired the Otago Festival shows back in 2000, it forced me to learn how to rip live MP3 audio off the Internet. I had to quickly write the software to do it.

Listening between meetings. Just returned from Auckland and visiting the store. So excited for this show. Hi Cecile, one of the people who introduced me to Flying Nun in 1985.

Thank you Hamish and Roger for all the great music!

Hi, Katie!
Avatar 4:03pm Cecile:

We all circled "The Dunedin Double" but were afraid to buy it. Then the Clean's Pink Frost reached us, and , it was all over. My husband gave the double to me for Christmas.
Avatar 4:04pm Mayor Frank:

Toy Love.
Avatar 4:05pm Mayor Frank:

That's the beauty, though?? Without you??
Avatar 4:07pm Cecile:

I just have a quick question to Hamish.
How did the Clean end up in the movie Scarfies?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08pm joe mulligan:

are there one or two clubs in NZ that are the best to see the flying nun sound for live shows?
Avatar 4:09pm Cecile:

NZ is the only place where "Love Will Tear Us Apart" was a mainstream pop hit, IIRC
Avatar 4:09pm Brian Turner:

I'd say the Empire in Dunedin was kinda ground zero in a way.
Avatar 4:09pm Brian Turner:

@ Cecile and Lie Dream of a Casino Soul was a hit
Avatar 4:10pm Cecile:

Really? That explains a lot.

It's kind of nice thinking that my little DJ shows in the 80s helped the NZ folks even a sliver.

@Carm, it's a bunch of YouTube videos. Once the page stops refreshing (at the end of the show) they'll settle down and we'll be able to play them.

@BT, fantastic show! Wow!
