Options Brian Turner: Playlist from February 16, 2016 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.

@mick: NDR2. I loved his selection of TOP 100 new entries in his show "Top Fofftein". But lets admit the Tarzan song was truly awful and back then even a dissapointment for a subteenager.
  Tue. 2/16/16 4:03pm mick:

@ c : ach....wenn man es 35 jahre lang nicht gehört hat, fetzt es schon...haha. vor allem, dass es so krass nach ían dury klang fand ich eben ganz interessant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/16/16 4:13pm Wild Neil:

@Mick-sorry, I try to be relentlessly positive on the boards. Won't happen again, will keep my own counsel on stuff I do not like. It could hurt musicians that look up comments. Forgot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/16/16 4:15pm coelacanth:

Cecile - fantastically horrible! not as bad as "disco duck" from the us in 1976. even as a child it was painfully obvious how awful that was!
Avatar Tue. 2/16/16 4:16pm Brian Turner:

Rick Dees followed it up with Dis-Gorilla -- its on You Tube from a TV Variety show
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/16/16 4:16pm coelacanth:

(but then commercial radio was almost uniformly dismal at that moment.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/16/16 4:18pm coelacanth:

haha! i don't think i want to know about the follow-up!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/16/16 4:20pm coelacanth:

Neil, i'd be surprised if the creator of that haven't since come to realise how awful it is. (f he/they didn't know it at the time.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/16/16 4:20pm Cecile:

I remember Dis-Gorilla well. It was bad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/16/16 4:21pm Cecile:

Neil, I think you gotta have a thick skin to perform. Don't sweat it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/16/16 4:22pm coelacanth:

("creators haven't" or "creator hasn't"..either one!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/16/16 4:23pm Wild Neil:

@Cecile-one of the DJs was advocating for that position so I wish to support the wishes of all DJs within reason. But to live in this modern world, I agree , you need a thick skin anyway...so much messed up today in the world...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/16/16 4:24pm Cecile:

I'm going to say something sucks to me if it sucks to me. I'm just not going to make it personal. I expect people to be honest about my art, so it cuts both ways.

Brian, do you have that one Bee Gees early track where they sound like the Pretty Things or STones or something?
Avatar Tue. 2/16/16 4:27pm Brian Turner:

I do not know that drug
Avatar Tue. 2/16/16 4:30pm c:

One last story about Willem: Together with Conny Planck, he founded the "Kraut Musikverlag", pioneering (maybe) the Krautrock movement. See www.sr.de... (in german).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/16/16 4:30pm coelacanth:

also a consideration with respect to that dj's wishes (which was a whole different situation involving a currently active band) is that "disco duck" and anything of the sort was made solely to capitalize on the disco fad. it was a joke at the time, even to people who bought it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/16/16 4:33pm Wild Neil:

"Gog" is my sister's nickname now thanks to her granddaughter calling her gaga.

Parts of this sound texturally like when Jimi burned his guitar.
  Tue. 2/16/16 4:58pm Mark R.:

That reminded me of one time a few months ago when you (I'm pretty sure it was you) were playing something like this and I thought I'd be cute and get on the comments board and say I thought my neighbor upstairs was vacuuming, and you said, no, I cut the turntable in half with a buzz saw. Touche, sir.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/16/16 4:59pm Michael in Seattle:

Sounds like the static in my head.
  Tue. 2/16/16 4:59pm Mark R.:

Never try to out-smartass an FMU DJ is the lesson I learned that day. But you must have succeeded in warping my mind now because I'm actually enjoying this.

No, Pi, an angry listener once compared to Bryce to marbles in a blender. He took it as a badge of honor.

I already made a fake Dio baseball card for the part about his early life - he wanted to be a baseball player at one time. I pasted his face over Lou Pinella's!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 2/16/16 5:17pm Cecile:

I was using a Yankees Pinella card from the 70s with a slightly older Dio so it would fit in the alternate timeline.

Pi, when I get his eyes right, I will send you a .jpeg.

Like when Sugar called that one album "File Under Easy Listening" and a lot of record stores DID. I guess it really hurt sales of what was actually a pretty good album.
