Options Brian Turner: Playlist from August 11, 2015 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.

Options August 11, 2015: w/ guest DJ TOM LAX from Siltbreeze Records

Listen to this show: | Add or read comments


The annual visit from our pal Tom Lax, bringing up yet another assortment of obscuro and extremely special 7" singles wax from Siltbreeze headquarters in Philadelphia. If you've checked out this special in past years you know that you will certainly be hearing a lot of DIY/post-punk and general oddball stuff you will probably not hear anywhere else (and see as well, as we will be posting the sleeve art on the playlist page live). Not to be missed!

Thanks Fred. I know people like to be the "first" to appreciate a good band, but it does an artist or band no good to never make a livable wage doing the work they love. I am not a fan of the whole starving artist misconseption.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/11/15 3:19pm JakeGould:

@blee: “I am not a fan of the whole starving artist misconseption.” Agreed. Tired of this precious little puppy/flower mentality in the arts. Let bands be successful; there’s no honor in obscurity or poverty.

Gulcher. That's the title of a really fun Richard Meltzer book.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/11/15 4:20pm Cecile:

that's also MX-80's label from their Indiana days.
Avatar Tue. 8/11/15 4:23pm RZ:

I'm just gonna go ahead and favorite the whole episode. ;)
  Tue. 8/11/15 4:26pm Dean:

Just for fun, I ran "gulcher" through ngram. Results appear in the 1880s (!) and then again in the 1940s, peaking right around 1972, when Meltzer first published his book, and then a steady ascent to 1992, when a revision appeared. But OED has no entry for the word.
  Tue. 8/11/15 4:31pm KAWOWSKI:

Oh that was SWE… OK …
  Tue. 8/11/15 4:38pm Michael:

Keep an eye out for "The Fed Up Skank" on the "Cease and Desist DIY" comp double LP coming out end of October on Optimo.

Well, the case of the Cramps, Lux Interior is dead… So he’s doing dead now…
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/11/15 5:55pm Cecile:

I'd say dead, in other bands, working day jobs or retired.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/11/15 5:57pm Stevel:

I'd also wager a few became born again. Happens often with those searching for truth and answers.

Did any Mecht Mensch members move on to Killdozer?

No, Tar Babies.

Thanks Cecile!! (We have to talk someday!) Names I recall are Robin and Jeremy Davies. Other fun folk in that scene included Linda LeSabre, later of Thrill Kill Kult.
