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.

T.L. Decker  Excerpt   Options "Record from the Future"    This inexplicable 10-inch record from 1969 is one of the strangest and most obscure private pressings you could ever hope to find. It contains a 24-minute psychedelic message from the distant future, presented with intermittent bursts of electronic music, feedback and ambient noise. This recording is an "unauthorized experiment" that was made in the year 2058 C.D.S. (Carbon Dating System), a "blue verbal data feed" sent backwards in time to "retro A.D." by Decker, T. L., index J-3, CMR 00965 of T-Group Roaring Vectors 252, a human cyborg who suffers from a malfunctioning number nine electrode in his head which causes him to have an emotional breakdown as he records this message. It's a secret message to a past world he has trouble imagining, a retro world of foreign substances like metal, plastic, animals, soldiers... a world all "physical and slow," "all mechanical and disunified, before major coordinations." An 8½" 20RPM disc containing this recording was found on the elevator at 205 W. 57th Street in New York City on February 11, 1969 by the composer Clark Gesner. The only other known copy of this record resides in Box 44 Folder 7 of the Clark Genser archive at the Princeton University Library Manuscripts Division: A 1973 issue of Radical Software magazine (Vol. II Nr 3) contains a partial (inaccurate and rather poorly comprehended) transcript of a little over half of this recording, as well as a letter from Mr. Gesner declaring this recording to be a part of the public domain.

Mueran Humanos  Live in the WFMU Studio   Options Engineered by Scott Williams    Mueran Humanos (translated: Death To Humanity) are the duo of Carmen Burguess and Tomas Nochteff, two Argentine transplants to Berlin. Together, they've incorporated visual art and industrial synthscapes while utilizing some driving, processed bass guitar in the proceedings; they've been called a garage-rock version of Chris and Cosey. Dark elements of Suicide, DAF, Soft Cell abound amidst Spanish lyrics, they're less dancefloor and more expansive electro-psychedelia, and have a recent release on Sean from Cult of Youth's excellent Blind Prophet label. They stop by to perform on Brian's show today on their 2nd US tour. More at the band's site. VIDEO of today's set shot by Yvonne Szcemczak here!    2:03:36 ()

  Tue. 12/6/11 3:18pm bill:

All of em, Katie
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:19pm NuMetalMan:

Third Ear Blind, they're big.
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:19pm dc pat:

nah, I like Drag City and Gigante Sound. Cubic Pyramid sounds like a bad bar band...
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:20pm Jorge:

Hello Brian. Cant wait for Mueran Humanos !!
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:25pm bill:

Third Ear Band were in the Macbeth movie playing hurdy gurdys n shit
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:26pm Matt from Springfield:

@pat: In any case sounds unnecessarily pretentious.
@bill: <Katie???>
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:26pm Hot Stuff:

Was this (Oh, Cherry) a Stones song originally, or did they cover it? Too damned lazy to Google. Too damned lazy to even get out of this chair and get a wedge of pie. zzzzzzzzzzzz
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:27pm Matt from Springfield:

Jawharp goes Trippy...excellente.
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:27pm Bloody Capt.:

You mean .... the Scottish play.
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:29pm dc pat:

yeah, Bloody Cpt, I was about to say...
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:29pm Loren:

Brian Turner... making days, one track at a time.

This Melvins cover rulez!!!
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:30pm bill:

Sorry. Am throwing digital salt over my shoulder now.
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:31pm osvi:

Snivlem vs. Olson Twins. Nice. Coworker's minds officially blown.
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:31pm pgw in mntclr:

Melvins + Olson Twins = Irwin's Amanda
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:31pm Joe B:

  Tue. 12/6/11 3:31pm Loren:

Charles Albright will officially dig this
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:31pm Matt from Springfield:

Meme rock!
@bill: Hey, could you pass that digital salt over this way?
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:31pm bill:

Ooh! Thanks BT! I was hoping for this...
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:32pm Bloody Capt.:

WIKI - "According to a theatrical superstition, called the Scottish curse, speaking the name Macbeth inside a theatre will cause disaster. A variation of the superstition forbids direct quotation of the play (except during rehearsals) while inside a theater.
Because of this superstition, the lead character is most often referred to as the Scottish King or Scottish Lord. Sometimes Mackers is used to avoid saying the name, mostly in North America."
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:34pm Letha:

you're making me hungry! Great!
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:34pm bill:

Matt: Sure, here you go.
Also, to answer yer earlier question in Jeopardy form:
Who are your favorite founding fathers, Ms Palin?
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:38pm Matt from Springfield:

@bill: Ah, "gotcha"...
Speaking of which, the Herman Cain song was about as good as his campaign! 3rd/4th/5th career as a lounge singer, perhaps?

Mmm, good digisalt...
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:38pm Carmichael:

Happy Tiu's day, BT and commenters. <Now entering rockin' mode>
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:38pm Carmichael:

Over the top indulgent guitar solo. Check.
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:39pm bill:

Matt: as an arranger at least!
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:40pm woooo:

herman cain is the peter grudzien of modern politics.
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:40pm Bloody Capt.:

"According to a theatrical superstition, called the Scottish curse, speaking the name Macbeth inside a theatre will cause disaster. ecause of this superstition, the lead character is most often referred to as the Scottish King or Scottish Lord. Sometimes Mackers is used to avoid saying the name, mostly in North America." WIKI
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:41pm Spitzer:

Gary Hart!
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:43pm Farner:

THe world needs more extended guitar solos. Indie fascists have destroyed this expressive art and have championed instrumental mediocrity.
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:43pm bill:

Bloody Capt:
I've trod plenty of boards and have never ever heard of "Mackers." Somebody at WIKI's full of it. God help us it's probably the chief resource for most student papers.
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:44pm bill:

Farner: don't forget the Liebrulz.
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:45pm Carmichael:

Who are THESE losers?!?
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:46pm dc pat:

bill: me neither.

Farner: cut down the guitar solo...
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:46pm Loren:

What Carmichael, you don't know Royal Trux!?
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:46pm Farner:

Well, maybe fascists was a bot over-the-top. I love lots of Indie, but the blanket policy about soloing seems repressive. True, there are boatloads of bad solos, but when in the hands of a soulful artist, the end result can be transcendent. Stairway. Birds of Fire. etc.
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:48pm Loren:

Farner: check out Lenny White's "Prince of the Sea" for a great dual between Larry Coryell and Al Di Meola... pretty tight drumming as well.
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:48pm Carmichael:

@Farner: any song from Rock'n'Roll Animal. That frequently transcendentalized me.
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:48pm bill:

Farner: Am I addressing Mr. Mark Farner, sir?
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:49pm \|----------|/:

Mackers! Hee hee! I love it!
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:49pm Loren:

Is that what that smell is?

"I like the Kinks, but life stinks?" HA HA!
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:50pm Farner:

Coryell is underrated. Carmichael: That would be Dick Wagner (Frost, Ursa Major, Alice Cooper) Fantastic. Bill: I wish I were Mark Farner (Although he has gone quite Republican of late. Ted Nugent Syndrome.
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:50pm poli:

y mueran humanos? when?
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:51pm Loren:

Dude, BT is on a roll, in my book, and I've got work duties to attend to... Life Stinks!!!!
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:52pm Dillweed:

THis sounds like Neil Young. Harvest Moon? Wish it were Dennis DeYoung. Desert Moon!
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:53pm Van in Dallas:

Somebody left the door unlocked. I'll just sit over in this corner :)
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:54pm Cecile:

Shattered is still a good song. Maybe one of their last ones.
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:55pm Cheri Pi:

Sorry I'm late!
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:56pm Finish friends:

Olet anteeksi, BT
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Somebody lock the door! It was open, now all these listeners are just pouring in! :)
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:57pm bill:

Yikes, they're gonna wash the dishes.
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:57pm Carmichael:

Count the spoons, Bill ...
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, new John Cale. 5 song EP?
  Tue. 12/6/11 3:59pm Cheri Pi:

I hatched in here, doors can't hold "this"
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:00pm Loren:

not feeling this... at all.
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:00pm Matt from Springfield:

A lot of new EPs (if they're good) now have 5 songs or so. ITunes ones sometimes have as few as 3 tracks though.

"The French Are Coming!"
"Ooh la la!"
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:00pm Cecile:

okay, this would have been edgy in 1982.
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:01pm Up Chuck:

This is awful.
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:03pm Cheri Pi:

Cecile, I thought of you the other day, Tainted Love, on my fm "light" station in the car. I was late to work because I had to listen to every note.
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:03pm bill:

Woo hoo! It's like your grandaddy singing from the grave it is.
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:04pm SNP:

Scottish Independence! Make this your spoken language!
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:05pm Carmichael:

Over the top self indulgent bagpipe solo??
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:06pm Cheri Pi:

I want beer. now.
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:06pm Matt from Springfield:

Accordion solo at least!

The Church's "Under The Milky Way" -- that had a PSYCH bagpipe solo!
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:07pm Cecile:

I love me some Soft Cell.
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:07pm Carmichael:

It's discount pint night at my local brewhouse. I'll quaff one for ya, Cheri, unless you can get to Sacramento PRONTO.
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:07pm Joe B:

I'd go see steely dan if this guy toured as their lead vocalist
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:08pm Matt from Springfield:

"No, Reelin' In The Years is a good song to play at your bar gig. What? You don't know the lyrics? Okay, write this down..."
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:08pm bill:

if that's Rick playing guitar, well, I say, I want beer too.
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:08pm Van in Dallas:

Soon to make my way to my local watering hole as well. Yay for happy hour! :)
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:09pm pgw in mntclr:

+2 for Joe B
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:10pm Cheri Pi:

Pandora's Eddie Money station-nice work BT!

I was having a bad day, but I don't think I am anymore. Thank you Brian T and Rick Kn
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:10pm Cheri Pi:

Soft Cell were so ahead of their time.
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:11pm mick:

it`s double spot on.
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:13pm Cheri Pi:

Thanks Carmichael. I'm stopping off for beer after work. I blame BT , Rick Kni & You.
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:14pm dc pat:

  Tue. 12/6/11 4:18pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

I like this spacy version of El Paso. Was Skip Spence in on the recording too?
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:19pm Matt from Springfield:

I like this too. Are all their songs reverb heavy like this?
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:20pm still b/p:

Ohhh, I know a handful of folks who talk that "Mackers" smack as alt. to "Scottish play," and the references come up a lot.
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:20pm bill:

can't get YouTube at work glenn, but I'll take your word for it.
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:23pm Kate:

Aw man, I just got back from a meeting - can't believe I missed Rick Kniazeff!
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:26pm Matt from Springfield:

Paris 1919 was good--I would had fallen asleep to "Antarctic Starts Here"--that's such a lush, expansive song. And a comfy chair, it's over!

Strength thru failed sci-fi demos.
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:35pm wild NEIL:

This sounds a lot like the dialog from the movie Brick! Also, is this a reference to Decker in Blade Runner/ do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by PK Dick?
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:35pm chris m:

could you please call off your dogs, ma'am? these dogs keep snappin' and yappin'.
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:35pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow. Strange sci-fi psychedelia. I wonder if anyone commissioned that or someone just decided to do it.

  Tue. 12/6/11 4:39pm Carmichael:

The Jerky Boys?
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:39pm paul:

this is from like the 8th LPC album actually
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:41pm glenn:

i don't know. 1400$ would buy about 50 tons of gravel where i am, so that's not a very good deal.
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:41pm bill:

chris m, are you from the future?
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:41pm Letha:

Gravel for Eddie is Funny!

i hate crap like that... poor eddie money. just like ronnie said... take it back to the loading dock
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:46pm eyenoise:

Prank phone calls are not usually my thing, but that was awesome.
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:49pm paul:

nail is better than comedy,
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:51pm Matt from Springfield:

This is awesome! Kudos to Neil for keeping this routine FCC-friendly for our uncensored benefit!
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:54pm phillip:

You need to catch Neil live.
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Another Finnish one today.
@phillip: Have you ever seen him live?
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:55pm phillip:

Four times now.
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:58pm phillip:

A woman in the audience at a Calgary show assaulted him not long ago.
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:58pm bill:

I last heard him on Live from Malaysia. His delivery has changed a lot since then
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:58pm JT:

re: neil
  Tue. 12/6/11 4:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Will try to find a Hamburger show. Thanks phillip!
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:00pm phillip:

His DVD's are great too. His first album is a slight mix of music and prank phone calls. But no Neil Hamburger character.
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:01pm yoyomama:

So... Are we getting the Circle and Eidetic tracks simultaneously?
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:01pm yoyomama:

  Tue. 12/6/11 5:02pm Jimmy Two Times:

Yes and no.
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:03pm Jumbo shrimp:

Yeah, poor Eddie Money.
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:03pm mz:

Eddie Money interview links to Herman Cain pizza video. Perceptions shattered.
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:06pm still b/p:

I was bummed that in the movie they decide to introduce a guy called Jimmy Two Times, but the only thing he says is "I'm going to get the paper, get the paper." And that's it -- gone, never heard from in the picture again.
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:07pm kata:

anyone who took high school spanish getting a whif of what she's singing about?
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:07pm jtm:

Brian te escuchamos como siempre desde Argentina. Gracias por llevar a Nochteff a quienes seguimos desde Dios... un abrazo grande
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:13pm Matt from Springfield:

Amazing music--I'd like to see what kind of visuals they put to this.
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:17pm Richard from Venezuela:

Hola!! ..Dark elements of Suicide, is that the name of a band? :]
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:25pm Matt from Springfield:

Hola MK!
They could mean Dark elements, of bands: Suicide, DAF and Soft Cell.

It says Suicide is "an American electronic protopunk musical duo", so that sounds about right.
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:25pm Matt from Springfield:

YES!! 666 math answer during Brian's show!! Been a while since I got one of those!
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:26pm Marmalde kitty:

of course! Matt ;)
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:28pm Matt from Springfield:

But you gotta admit, "Dark Elements of Suicide" is an ideal band name.
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:32pm the glowing one:

but I think Soft Cell can't be right, they used more than one chord
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:34pm \|----------|/:

@Matt, you presumably are not aware that the band Suicide is a long-time favorite around here? So "Dark Elements of..." might seem derivative or too homage-y (makes a nice acronym though).

What's your favorite Soft Cell song, Muerans?
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:36pm Marmalde kitty:

D.E.S band!
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:37pm Matt from Springfield:

@ \|-|/: Actually I wasn't aware (Algebra Suicide is one I remember, not related to this genre). An acronym can work if it helps make DES as one "thing" instead of refering to an earlier group.

was thinking DEoS, sounds kind of spooky, no?
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:40pm Matt from Springfield:

Like Deus, but a spooky guttural chant! DEoS....
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:40pm JT:

great set
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:40pm Marmalde kitty:

Matt, what kind of music do you envisage for DES or DEoS band? :)
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:40pm Matt from Springfield:

Muy bueno! Muchas gracias Mueran Humanos!
Gracias a Brian, Scott y WFMU!!

DES was a drug given to pregnant ladies who had miscarried in the 60s. It was disocontinued, but women whose mom took the drug are often infertile or have other lady-problems.
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:41pm Cecile:

also, cancer.
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:41pm corduroy moccasins:

DEoS is an acronym of System of a Down, with the 'e' flipped upside down, which ties in with the down!!! (not really) :O IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:42pm Marmalde kitty:

Cecile, thats even better, perfect! :)
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:43pm Matt from Springfield:

@MK: Well, "Dark Night of the Soul" and the names of bands on that show might bias me... :)

I'd say they could go either a New Order route, or else industrial like KMFDM or something.
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:44pm Cecile:

I hope the music DES won't f me up like the drug...
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:46pm Matt from Springfield:

"Diethylstilbestrol" -- and the victims "DES Daughters". I've heard of that now. Along with thalidomide, they really should have tested many of those drugs more thoroughly!
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:47pm Cecile:

It was just women. Their insides probably were too complicated so they just threw treatments up against the proverbial wall to see what stuck.

  Tue. 12/6/11 5:48pm andymorphic:

i wish these guys were on tour....i'd love to see them
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:48pm Marmalde kitty:

DES has got to be the most depressing incarnation of an imaginery band for a long time!
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:49pm Cecile:

But what's ironic is that the nausea thalidomide counteracted was nothing compared to the suffering kids had being born with flippers, and DES didn't do a thing to stop miscarriages.
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:50pm Cecile:

And thalidomide was illegal in this country. But it wasn't in Europe and the Caribbean!
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:52pm Marmalde kitty:

the three or four of us should definitely start this band! tons of themes and storys etc could be big ;)
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:53pm Matt from Springfield:

"What's been troubling you today? You're depressed...because of a music band? And the band isn't real, but imaginary? What...." :)
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:54pm corduroy moccasins:

I will be the '5th' DEoS'r, the one who left before the imaginary band imagined itself to the big time.. K I QUIT - YOUR EGOS ARE TOO BIG. I CAN"T WORK LIKE THIS....
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:54pm Matt from Springfield:

"The lyrics of DES are biting, infused with themes of depression, and reference numerous medical malpractice incidents over the 20th century"...
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:54pm The Let 'em Hide Babies:

Flipper is our fave band!
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:55pm Cecile:

The first album should be entitled "Cancer in Rats".
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:56pm Matt from Springfield:

@MK: Heh heh, just noticed you missed an 'a' in your moniker! Marm-alde, like "Marm Owl'd" :)
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:58pm \|----------|/:

Another good band name: Troubled by Imaginary Music

BTW love this Vijay
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Pete Best, opening for Corduroy Moccasins.
  Tue. 12/6/11 5:59pm Matt from Springfield:

I love anything India!

See you all at the next imaginary rehearsal! ;)
Thanks Brian for a great show!
  Tue. 12/6/11 6:00pm Marmalde kitty:

the band name, owed to Brian Turners playlist, misinterpretation.. Brian we'd love the interview and live set! :)
  Tue. 12/6/11 6:00pm mark vt:

Hey for some reason I thought of how some Chinese or other oriental music. I always thought that I saw mommy kissing Santa sounds chinese
