Options Brian Turner: Playlist from July 20, 2010 Options

Brian Turner's avatar View Brian Turner's profile 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.

Unrest  Live in the WFMU Studios   Options Engineered by Jason Sigal and David Van Dokkum    Certainly one of the cornerstones of U.S. 90's indie rock, Washington DC's Unrest evolved from schizophrenic postpunk roots into finely crafted, texture-heavy, Brit-reverent, and even experimental pop music. Records like Malcolm X Park and Imperial FFRR earned them a heavy fan base and eventual gravitation onto 4AD records by 1993 after a huge discography of homegrown releases on leader Mark Robinson's Teenbeat record label. They disbanded in 1994, did one reunion show in 2005, and return with the lineup of Robinson, Bridget Cross, and Phil Krauth for a Teenbeat 26th Anniversary tour. Unrest makes a stop by Brian's show for what's sure to be a killer live set. Setlist: So So Sick / Make Out Club / UFO (ESG cover) / Isabel / June / West Coast Love Affair / I Do Believe You Are Blushing / Firecracker / Cherry Cherry. UPDATE: You can now download MP3s of this session via the Free Music Archive.    2:04:39 ()

  Tue. 7/20/10 3:08pm john:

Great start...
  Tue. 7/20/10 3:09pm Matt from Springfield:

@Steven: You might be third, and I'm second, if you count the "Listener comments!" box as the first.

Algebra Suicide - unusual name, unusual sound - I'm liking it.
  Tue. 7/20/10 3:10pm Steven Gugel:

Matt - this is beginning to sound like algbra. Who's on first?
  Tue. 7/20/10 3:11pm Matt from Springfield:

  Tue. 7/20/10 3:13pm Matt from Springfield:

Great screaming fireturtles, this Comus piece is the bee's farking knees...
  Tue. 7/20/10 3:26pm Nancella:

"Diana" kinda sounds like "Stayin Alive" by the Bee Gees, but on acid!
  Tue. 7/20/10 3:35pm Matt from Springfield:

What your NES sounded like plugged into the TV with all those broken knobs...
  Tue. 7/20/10 3:37pm Matt from Springfield:

And speaking of which..."Digital Duck" -- re-ducks.
  Tue. 7/20/10 3:40pm Nancella:

ducks are fun

Sugarloaf! If I may say so, SWEET!
  Tue. 7/20/10 3:53pm Nancella:

Brian, your mind is beautiful amd very very strange!
  Tue. 7/20/10 3:55pm BT:

  Tue. 7/20/10 4:01pm Cheri Pi:

Yes BT, get it!
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:02pm Grandpa Scorpion:

What's the breakout track from that?
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:03pm mark m:

  Tue. 7/20/10 4:08pm mark m:

"Nadia's theme" from The Young And The Restless
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:09pm Matt from Springfield:

I enjoyed Diane's Dio tribute last week. Had no idea RJD had such a very long (half century) recording career.
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:10pm BT:

You'll be getting tons of that, Mark.
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:11pm don:

this absolutely IS
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:17pm Barry S.:


I just missed the Dio track! Guys at Ralph's Record City in Scranton used to say they saw his lounge band in Binghanton , N Y. Ronald Padavona ,RIP
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:18pm chris:

True dat, Ted.
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:18pm Matt from Springfield:

Yes! With Ted Lucas, Brian is effectively airing a pot commercial! Imagine the jingles you could hear...
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:20pm marq:

  Tue. 7/20/10 4:21pm Grandpa Scorpion:

Damn, Atlantis is the shizzle.
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:21pm Matt from Springfield:

Joe M., are you paying attention??!! Don't miss out on this "terrible disco" for SN! In fact, "Dirty Space Disco" is even better than "terrible disco".
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:22pm holland oats:

ariel pink has nothing on john forde
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:22pm Joe:

@Matt: I was actually just telling Scott that I dug this quite A LOT.
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:24pm Cheri Pi:

The HEADS: Yesssssssssssssssss
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:24pm Matt from Springfield:

@Joe: Yes! This reminded of the "Grasshopper"/"Fly On UFO" Single File. Do have any more disco in that vein?
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:25pm BT:

Hey matt that whole comp is totally killer.
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:27pm Barry S.:

This like Crimson Jello Biafra! Yum!
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:29pm Joe:

@ Matt: Brian's right, these guys do generally great comps: http://www.d-i-r-t-y.com/compilations.html. And yes, I will play more sometimes ridiculous disco in the future!
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:32pm paul:

is that the comp with that "captain starlight" song, that one rules
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:34pm BT:

Risque "Starlight"
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:35pm Matt from Springfield:

@BT, Joe, paul: Thank you, another day saved by WFMU! I see they even have Sylvester on that comp.
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:40pm mark m:

i am still waiting for my request.
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:42pm Lou:

@mark - Quit your complaining!
Great job BT!
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:42pm Lou:

@mark - Quit your complaining!
Great job BT!
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:44pm paul:

i have been so addicted to this song/video as of late
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:45pm holland oats:

if anyone found a working dl for space disco please pass it along
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:45pm mark m:

well if i can not get the mr. mom soundtrack can i get the melhouse single?
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:46pm Charles @ Soleilmoon:

Brian, I don't like to be thought of as a whiner, but I'm SO TIRED of this ""So Mean" song. Can we stop playing it on WFMU now please?
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:47pm BT:

No way!
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:47pm Charles @ Soleilmoon:

  Tue. 7/20/10 4:49pm Nancella:

I think its funny
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:49pm Cheri Pi:

Iperk up every time I hear the "so Mean" song. Keep playing it.
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:50pm Nancella:

and Yes, It Is So Nice To Get Stoned
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:50pm Charles @ Soleilmoon:

Nancella, it's funny if you haven't heard it before, but I've heard it so many times here the last few weeks that I'm sick of it.
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:52pm Nancella:

well, I don't listen to WFMU as much as you, Charles, but I hear you loud and clear.
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:52pm paul:

well then guess what. YOU'RE SO MEAN!!!

was actually listening to this Akufen album a few days ago, wondering where this guy disappeared to
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:53pm woen:

"so crap" more like.

yeah, that's right. i said it.
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:54pm BT:

I will play it for weeks to come!
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:54pm Charles @ Soleilmoon:

Just to beat this thing to death (and maybe stop it from being played so often), 16 playlists feature that song in recent weeks. http://bit.ly/d0MvwR
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:55pm Charles @ Soleilmoon:

Please don't throw me in the brian patch -- I mean BRIAR patch
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:55pm Bad Ronald:

This Drop Z track is hilarious!
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:55pm 3puen:

I'm so hurt
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:55pm Nancella:

Like that Afuken joint! I will never forget where I was when I found out the King of Pop passed. (sniff sniff)
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:56pm woen:

you, brian turner, are a monster
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:56pm Nancella:

Akufen, hahaha...
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:57pm Hank:

its so mean that your gonna have to listen to it for another 16 times in the future
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:58pm Nancella:

I must have this Drop Z song and play is 16 times in a row!
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:58pm Chris from DC:

Dammit, now I won''t be able to get Drop Z out of my head.
  Tue. 7/20/10 4:59pm Charles @ Soleilmoon:

3puen, no intent to hurt any feelings, especially yours. However, I have opinions, and that's the way it is. If I hear the song too many times I can always play an archive of another show.
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:00pm 3puen:

we are honored to be over played... lol
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:00pm still b/p:

The recipe/relationship of protest to reinforcement not yet clear? Often the squeaky wheel gets the breeze, brother.
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:01pm Nancella:

BT, promote your own show...
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:01pm Nancella:

its Thursday... at Zebulon. Right?
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:03pm Nancella:

oh, its Saturday?!?!
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:03pm Lou:

@Nancella, its FRIDAY.
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:06pm BT:

none of that
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:06pm Nancella:

What? You're in trouble, BT!
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:07pm Nancella:

@Lou, you're in trouble also!
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:07pm mark m:

can i get the mr. mom soundtrack after this?
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:08pm BT:

Jesus H
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:08pm Lou:

Hey! I didn't do anything. I was just telling you the correct day.
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:10pm Nancella:

oh, Lou: my mind always goes to the dark place, sorry.
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:11pm Nancella:

The Unrest recording is excellent. Nice work, BT
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:13pm Lou:

@Nancella - Its ok.

PS - I prefer early Unrest
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:14pm don:

BT.. you dat proverbial "man" .. jesus H made a snort exit me.. what's this baseline? why is it so familiar?
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:15pm BT:

ESG cover!
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:16pm don:

whoop! always asking questions before reading paragraph long comments. hepp.
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:19pm Kat:

Imperial LP's getting dusted off & spun when I get home from work. This is lovely.
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:24pm jacky:

  Tue. 7/20/10 5:24pm dan:

this set sounds great. i'm bummed i missed them a few weeks ago.
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:25pm flotation:

strange to see a bald mark robinson.
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:26pm jacky:

I saw them at Maxwells, very cool, but not too much of their earlier work
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:27pm jack:

i'm glad to be introduced to this band. Even more so as a live set from wfmu
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:28pm trevor k:

this is sounding really fantastic.
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:31pm Barry S.:

Hey BT,
This will really get ya! I bought my LP of Kustom Karnal Blackxspoitation at the WRKC Lp clear-out sale! ..."ahem"....
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:33pm BT:

Haha, wow, I'm glad all those LPs found a good home Barry....wish I was there to see the carnage.
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:34pm Nadnerb:

  Tue. 7/20/10 5:35pm Barry S.:

"Twas strangely sad,and yet beautiful
(for me,at least...).
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:37pm maria:

  Tue. 7/20/10 5:39pm Barry S.:

  Tue. 7/20/10 5:40pm Matt from Springfield:

Yay Unrest! Hope they come back!
@jack: I just heard of them during the previous weeks when some songs were being played to promote this set, I'm glad I know of them now.
@Barry: your daughter's already got great taste!
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:41pm lisa:

hey bt - cool. nice to hear that sound, the voices, the tunes.
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:42pm Barry S.:

I'm tryin' to raise her right....
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:46pm J-Mar:

Saw Unrest play in DC a couple weeks back -- and got to see three different lineups of the band play in the same night. The first lineup (the original high school lineup) hadn't played together since 1986, and the second lineup (Malcolm X Park/KKB) hadn't played together since 1989. Then the Phil-Bridget-Mark lineup. As an unabashed Unrest geek, it was a momentous occasion for me. Versus were also totally awesome.
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:47pm sugar:

KISS!!! clearly the best song they have played yet
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:51pm J-Mar:

Tim Moran actually performed "Chastity Ballad" at the Unrest show in DC -- wasn't expecting them to pull that one out.
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:54pm Mike East:

Great show today! Thanks Brian!
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:55pm BT:

Thx Mike!
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:55pm mark m:

mr. mom? we will have words...
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:56pm paul b.:

They also do a cover of "Black Diamond" , There is an earlier mix of "Can't sit still" in existence too. I used to like that one better, Don't know if I still would. Mark was a big Can fan at one point. Thanks, Brian, for playing their version of the Cath Carroll song earlier I really liked that.
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:57pm J-Mar:

That earlier version of "Can't Sit Still" is on the Fuck Pussy Galore CD.
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:58pm Lou:

So good today! Great stuff even without the Mr. Mom soundtrack
  Tue. 7/20/10 5:59pm Barry S.:

My daughter is all tuckered out from rockin' out BT!!!!
  Tue. 7/20/10 6:00pm Matt from Springfield:

A splendid time was had by all (mark m's gripe aside). See ya next week Brian!
