Options Brian Turner: Playlist from May 13, 2014 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.

ELP? Holy-? Last time I heard this, it was coming from my brother's 8 track..
Avatar Tue. 5/13/14 3:42pm Lopez:

Dude no way. I was obsessed with this song in high school (Karn Evil 9). I still have the triple-LP live ELP at home I'm not too proud to say
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/13/14 3:42pm Stanley:

Is this really playing, or is it me?
  Tue. 5/13/14 3:42pm sonictooth:

i like this album title
  Tue. 5/13/14 3:42pm Ryan M.:

Me and Genesis had rounds of drinks with Joachim Witt when we were in Berlin last November. I think he was slightly bummed that we had no idea who the hell he was, our hosts had to explain that he was a famous 80's pop singer in Germany. He was a blast to hang with, drank with him for hours! They were part of this play performance thing together based around Maldaror.
Avatar Tue. 5/13/14 3:43pm Droll:

ELP pack more notes into this song than the rest of the show -- combined. Kudos for going prog!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/13/14 3:43pm common:

I always thought this was the who when i was a kid.
  Tue. 5/13/14 3:44pm Kyle:

I played the grooves out of this one when I was a high school schnook. Still sounds good now that I'm an elderschnook!
Avatar Tue. 5/13/14 3:44pm dc pat:

@common, for shame...wait, now that you mention it...
Avatar Tue. 5/13/14 3:44pm Parq:

Okay, so we're agreed -- after all these decades, it is now okay to dig this track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/13/14 3:45pm DCE:

this would make a perfect intro to a noise set
  Tue. 5/13/14 3:45pm P-90:

@ Droll; Hahaha! as soon as the song started I knew you'd pop up!

R.I.P. H.R. Giger. Nice ELP cover art.
Avatar Tue. 5/13/14 3:46pm Droll:

Huh? There was a period ELP was uncool? I mean, besides "Love Beach".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/13/14 3:46pm DCE:

  Tue. 5/13/14 3:46pm sonictooth:

now it's going to be fun
Avatar Tue. 5/13/14 3:46pm Cheri Pi:

So...many...notes. WIll have to process them later while I'm in deep REM.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/13/14 3:47pm efd:

Come on Droll, we all know "Love Beach" is the best ELP song.
Avatar Tue. 5/13/14 3:48pm dc pat:

I'll trade in all the ELP notes for just 3 Good Throb notes...
  Tue. 5/13/14 3:49pm P-90:

@ re: "Love Beach" Haha, you are killing me, that one was so best forgotten that I HAD forgotten it. -til you invoked it
Avatar Tue. 5/13/14 3:50pm Droll:

efd, Pete Sinfeld is responsible for that lyrical abomination. It's like the Anti-Tarkus:
We can make love on love beach
out of reach of the lion's claws tonight.
We can make love on love beach
I want your love, with the stars above
down on love beach

I'm gonna make love to you, on love beach
Make all your dreams come true, on love beach
Gonna make love to you, on love beach
Gonna make your dreams come true, on love beach
Gonna make love to you, on love beach...
Avatar Tue. 5/13/14 3:50pm Parq:

One day, our kids will be reacting this way to someone playing an old U2 track. Oh yes, they will.

Lion's claws! I never noticed that, I just like the peppy tune!

the fur hat and palm trees and bad Photoshop are just bonuses.
Avatar Tue. 5/13/14 4:30pm Cecile:

I can't stop looking at it. It is mesmerizing.
I decided to look at worst album covers for a laugh, and about 1/2 of them I really really liked. hahaha
Avatar Tue. 5/13/14 4:32pm Cheri Pi:

It IS pure Genius, right up there with Hipgnosis
Avatar Tue. 5/13/14 4:33pm Cecile:

I thought so, too.
now I want a tiger and a fur hat so I can have a fake photoshoot outside my work. Then they can 'shop in the palm trees.
Avatar Tue. 5/13/14 4:34pm dc pat:

"hat?" Are you sure that ain't hair?
Avatar Tue. 5/13/14 4:34pm Cheri Pi:

Dressed for Winter in the Summer= BRILLIANT

Avatar Tue. 5/13/14 4:35pm Cecile:

what punk band couldn't pull out a great cover of that song?
Avatar Tue. 5/13/14 4:35pm dc pat:

sounds like Minor Threat w/o MacKaye
Avatar Tue. 5/13/14 4:35pm Cecile:

you should do three hours of Steppin Stone.

And Brian, thanks for the Satanic Threat. I feel better.
