Options Brian Turner: Playlist from January 2, 2018 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.

Berbo, I suspect that the Anthology is nothing but 47 different versions of Truckin'.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm Fuzzy:

Aw, I missed the Truckin'!
Shameless self-promotion: I made a cheesy Youtube video for one of the Pop-O-Pie Truckin' versions that I linked to on my audio/video tab in my WFMU profile. Mr. Pye even emailed to tell me he liked it!
  3:30pm Stevel:

Definitely a quality Sandra Bernhardt performance

...Flamin'Groovies - such great songs...get drunk w/ gittar & murder the whole 'ShakeSomeAlbum' - important like that...
Avatar 5:02pm Cecile:

That is a piece of my youth gone. It was a WCBN rite of passage to play a whole side of Z'ev, just cause.

...'ShakeSomeAction' album...

Is this is the Nick Haeffner who did the Great Indoors?
Avatar 5:07pm Cecile:

Yes, yes it is. One of the great rock 'n' roll one-off records.

In my Top20AlbumsEver I put 'TheClash' - but not the Ramones or 'Bollocks'
...& no one's called bs on me yet...must I do it myself??...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

It's @ once K-Tel & a very solid faithful cover.
  5:27pm 1976:

Loved Prog/experimental /Heard Ramones/Devo/Sex Pistols etc..became a punk rocker-Punks =Hippies!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Think a lot about how Prog/ArtRawk & PunkRawk are related.
The narrative is often that overlong RickWakeman solos drove people to Punk
- but I think also of the Eno-Iggy interface...obvious to you lot of course...
...Like - if simple elements can't make Art - then toss out Matisse...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...another musing: RawkMovements are all echoes of European Modern Movements
+ Black American R&B...like Psych is Surrealism + R&B, Punk is dADa + R&B, Mod is Futurism + R&B...
Avatar 5:33pm Chris from DC:

Digging the show, a bunch of records to follow up on here.
  Swag For Life Member 5:37pm disantlor:

Rabbit, I'd maybe suggest shyly that the common thread is a song's ability to evoke and sustain a clear feeling and that more elements added to a song require more skill/care/attention to avoid disturbing that feeling (Eno being a master). Overlong solos/prog maybe blur the message with the medium
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@disantlor: That's very good. Any Genre has it's typical pitfalls...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:42pm common:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@disantlor: (Great Musicians & Great Songwriters are certainly not always the same people - in fact - used to presume maybe seldom so? - & so w/ Arranging &tc. ...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:47pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Speaking of Surrealism - RobynHitchcock's rap between tunes alone is worth a ticket...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm Michael 98145:

true, indeed, RRN63
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm Carmichael:

Drone .........
  Swag For Life Member 5:52pm disantlor:

good point RRN, its also interesting how much higher the bar is for performance once there are vocals (seems to me at least)
Avatar 5:53pm Brian Turner:

Thanks for listening everyone, happy 2018.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@disantlor: Like bands whose records have harmonies - & they don't even try Live! Slam TheBeatles all you like - I can guarantee they sang their own damn parts...Eno has remarked on the Problem of Words...
Thank YOO BT.
