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.

Aha, I see it on the playlist - Lumb's Sister
Avatar Tue. 2/23/16 4:04pm Brian Turner:

Lumb's is out as a reissue. Apparently Lilith is out too on vinyl reissue. I don't think there's a recent album, could be wrong? Buy that Liles Groundhogs thing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/23/16 4:07pm Cliff:

Ah ok, I don't have NWW's discog memorized. Already have Lilith on CD. Liles Groundhogs, whazzat? (goes off to search)

"Back in the day, 20 years ago now, I found an osteopath in Euclid, Ohio, who would prescribe for any pretty girl who walked through the door 30 clean American football-shaped amphetamine tablets each month for a nominal fee. It wasn't long before I had my wife, my sister, my niece and the lady who lived across the road going regularly. On the street, you could get $10 for three tablets and I was making money hand over fist. Such was largely how the financing for the two Cleveland Confidential records came together. That, and a few common robberies." - from the liner notes I found online. It pays to have attractive relatives!

Esplendor Lopez! I had no idea this existed. MEGADIG.
  Tue. 2/23/16 4:38pm Polyus:

A few more days for me and Voivod. Apparently Melynda from Eight Bells broke her leg a couple of nights ago, no idea if they are gonna finish the tour.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/23/16 4:52pm Cliff:

david from radio active ks, it would be a bit hypocritical of me to have any ethical qualms regarding the (re)selling and/or usage of drugs in the music industry. (Just ask some of the other commenters about my live-commented shroom trip from this past Friday)

having turned on my radio just as she was saying "on wkcr", i turned on the computer to tell wfmu that something was very wrong with the 90.1 signal, although i'm glad to hear Sonny Sharrock.

This is the only way I'm gonna hear KCR in NH now...
Avatar Tue. 2/23/16 4:57pm Cecile:

I like how his guitar almost sounds like a kora in spots.
  Tue. 2/23/16 4:57pm Chapelhillian:

Way digging this Sonny Sharrock - but its a total bummer that WKCR hasn't streamed since 1/1/16 for legal reasons they are sorting out. They are a vital source for jazz/classical and especially avant variants of each, in case the FMUniverse is not familiar
Avatar Tue. 2/23/16 4:58pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

1974 did have heaviness.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/23/16 4:58pm Cliff:

Aha, I found some Russian MP3 sharing site that has the Lab Rats cover. After buying the $25 used CD on Amazon (fairly reasonable price, everything else was $40 on up, and it's going for at least $80 on Discogs if I want it on vinyl, jeeeeez)

Brian T.;just want to say the kind of d.j.-ing that happens at fmu is absolutely an art form. I think of you guys as musicians and the nearest visual equivalent would be assemblage at its highest level. Cheers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/23/16 5:05pm Cliff:

Ok, I took a re-listen, and Lab Rats is definitely going on my Aphrodite mix CD. I can keep Bananarama's "Cruel Summer" for the Persephone CD.

Save Internet Radio on fb:
New royalty rate laws have recently choked out several small / non-profit online broadcasters.
Avatar Tue. 2/23/16 5:16pm Cecile:

maybe the reason they won't give a reason is that paperwork that was supposed to be filed by them wasn't filed in time?

nope, sounds like stupid legal internet radio stupidity on someone else's part...

"Online stations face limits of how many songs by any particular artist — or even from a single album — can be played in a given period of time." Hmm, WFMU would never be in violation of THAT.

Today's phrase: Malá dívka je nadšená.
The little girl is excited.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/23/16 5:52pm Cliff:

Cool...can you do a word-by-word gloss of that phrase? (i.e. what does "mala" mean, "divka", etc.)
Avatar Tue. 2/23/16 5:53pm Michael in Seattle:

mala (small) divka (girl)
nadšený (adj, excited)
Avatar Tue. 2/23/16 5:55pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

hm.. "Lalibela" = also the name of an Ethiopian restaurant 'round the corner from home base. Suddenly at risk of wicked hunger...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/23/16 5:55pm Cliff:

Neato. Czech will be fun to learn, I'll have to unlearn my French/Spanish/Italian first, because I see a word like "mala" and think "bad", not "small"
Avatar Tue. 2/23/16 5:56pm Michael in Seattle:

@Cliff: yes, i have the same problem. Slavic is mucho different.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 2/23/16 5:57pm Cliff:

And hopefully the Japanese, Korean, Indonesian, Tagalog, and Old Norse jangling around in my brain won't interfere too much as well
