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.

it is kind of weird to listen in a different environment (vacation)...something about life going on while your world slows down a bit.

first-world problems...trying to clicky-star at the exact moment of an automated refresh
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/13 3:50pm tim from champaign:

Common - yeah, for real. Andrew WK. Put out a lot of noise music as a youngster in Ann Arbor, MI. It was usually put out under the name Andrew Wilkes Krier. He was also in a band called Pterodactils with Bulb Records founder Pete Larson and fellow synth weirdo Steve Kenney.

Thanks Jon Herweg for board opping and keeping the images going. NZ is ruling.... amazing train ride down North Island the other day up and down and around volcanos and 8 billion sheep. Stu from Axemen put me up in Auckland and we went to a great beach and did a driveby Chris Knox's house but he wasn't in the yard.

hi neighbor!!! glad to finally catch ur show!
  Tue. 9/3/13 4:59pm Jonny:

I failed typing 3 times in high school so this is good practice.
  Tue. 9/3/13 5:00pm BT:

Hi Aurelie --- we're only like 4000 miles apart now instead of 10,0000
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/3/13 5:02pm Cecile:

Awesome, Brian. The sheep are like they are on Teletubbies - so white and fluffy!
I spent some time in both Christchurch and Auckland briefly years and years ago. I remember Christchurch having this amazing architecture, and Auckland being on some kind of bay. We had high tea in Auckland at a botanical garden. It was cool.
  Tue. 9/3/13 5:02pm Aurélie E:

yeah!!! and it's such a sunny wednesday right here in Nouméa!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/3/13 5:02pm Cecile:

How is Chris Knox doing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/3/13 5:03pm Cheri Pi:

I heard Chris Knox was prowling around your office but you were at his house. weird eh?
  Tue. 9/3/13 5:03pm BT:

He looks as if he's doing the odd gig with locals here and there.... it's his birthday this week too.

holy schmoley, Aurelie! New Caledonia!

Is he able to talk again?

NYC to Noumea is 14056km/8734 miles. Auckland to Noumea is 1810km/1125 miles.

@Cécile, yep :)
@northguineahill: yep BT and I are neighbor from now

The geographer in me had to calculate the distance, otherwise I'd go crazy.
Avatar    Tue. 9/3/13 5:10pm Matt from Springfield:

@NGH: Geographic courtesy and benefit to the board, thanks! :)
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 5:12pm northguineahills:

Would love to do a NZ/New Caledonia trip, but it'll be a while before I earn enough vacation time before I can take off enough time.
Avatar    Tue. 9/3/13 5:12pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

There's a geographer in you?
Avatar    Tue. 9/3/13 5:15pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

It's all gone a bit Cronenberg in here. Give fair warning before the geographer emerges. Must get the Polaroid™ ready.
  Tue. 9/3/13 5:16pm Mark:

Great sounds. Love the cassette covers. The view from the Auckland to Wellington train looks outstanding. It's the beginning of Spring there now, right? (I realize you can't respond--but maybe a fellow listener knows). I assume also that these cassettes would be impossible to acquire if one were crazy enough to try (and I am).
Avatar    Tue. 9/3/13 5:18pm Matt from Springfield:

Too much to see on that side of the globe, and almost completely opposite (antipode) to me! New Zealand! New Caledonia! Eastern Australia! Western Australia! Bali! Phuket, Thailand! Chiang Mai! Hong Kong/Macau/Guangzhou! Et cetera!

Maybe they'll come up with a space public transit that will zip you out of the atmosphere and to the other side of the world--it would help me out a bit.
Avatar    Tue. 9/3/13 5:19pm Matt from Springfield:

@RTD: Any connection between the little geographers to the little people inside the TV?
Or at least the spiritual dimension inside the TV static? ("Poltergeist", not Cronenberg but similar era).
  Tue. 9/3/13 5:20pm Ryan M.:

Not impossible. A lot of the old ones are tough but pop up on discogs or in collections. I don't do eBay, so not sure if tapes show up on there with any regularity.

As for the new stuff I played, almost all of it is available through the respective label websites. The collaboration I did with MB is still available on Robertandleopold.com

The Ascetic House releases can be purchased through Heaven Street in Brooklyn or Chondritic Sound mailorder.
  Tue. 9/3/13 5:21pm Mark:

Thanks, Ryan!

man i need/ed this
  Tue. 9/3/13 5:29pm MikeT:

BT: Welcome to Wellington/Wednesday AM! Also, you're just it time for a southerly gale, which always makes for an interesting ferry or flight.
Avatar    Tue. 9/3/13 5:31pm Matt from Springfield:

@NGH: At least you've neared the equator! Suvarnabhumi Airport outside Bangkok is my farthest south so far, but I hope to improve on that (less than Antarctic, though!) ;)

Changi Airport in Singapore has flights to Chiang Mai in Thailand, I've thought of planning a trip focused on the urban city-states of Asia one week (HK/Macau/S China, fly to S'pore), then fly to my fave Thai city for the next week.
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 5:35pm northguineahills:

Yeah, I want to do Macau (did HK in 88). seems to be an interesting cultural blend w/ Vegas on steroids.

...sleeepy on long weekend (for me) & thru this somehow...

DCE @3:50: - yeah - &/or Commenting @ moment of AutoRefresh - sometimes quicker just Close & Reopen browser

...& Matt - *often* ☆ & it doesn't take. Presume DJ has to hit Enter on something before ☆ will 'stick' - ??

...after stream prob.s during Belock don't wanna come off like it's Technical Bitch Day
- yerknow - it all ususally worx fine - & the music ain't bad either...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/13 5:43pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...so - while I was chuffed to get something in a friend's xerox zine - other people were actually putting out music on cassettes...
Avatar    Tue. 9/3/13 5:44pm Matt from Springfield:

@RRN63: Hiya! I've thought that a too-frequent AutoRefresh might sometimes clear your choices until it works its way out or the playlist isn't updated as often.

A pre-scheduled Technical Bitch Day, OTOH, is a great idea! When's the next big technical SNAFU on the music stream, and how does that work for you??...

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/13 5:49pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...well - seems like if I ☆ something - it always goes on my Profile as ☆ed (...& I suspect I am @ least as ☆-promiscuous as anyone)
- but why do ☆s not 'stick' / 'fill in' right away - why does *that* take persistence? (It helps to know what you've ☆ed, naturally.)
Avatar Tue. 9/3/13 5:51pm northguineahills:

@ Matt: Woaaaahhhh......
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/13 5:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Well - it's a stretch, but :
- it's like Joe Satriani said about ElectricLadyLand by Hendrix being more interesting than digital effects
- all the sounds are analog & 'made by hand' - & each one unique
...perhaps that analogy to this stuff works...
Avatar    Tue. 9/3/13 5:55pm Matt from Springfield:

@NGH: Zac Galifinakis spiking sort of additive! ;)
@RRN63: Agree, that takes more skill to figure out how to do, and how to replicate.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/3/13 5:55pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...after all - all that great Classic stuff in the 1960s was 2-track - then a lot 4-track - then 8 & finally 16
- which it shares w/ a lotta LoFi !...
