Options Brian Turner: Playlist from August 30, 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.

Cometbus has never stopped publishing. New issue is #57 and 35th anniversary. All excellent interviews w/ cartoonists & comic book people. You don't even have to like punk. Last one was a great "Bestiary of NYC Booksellers."

@CrC, thank you! i had no idea.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/30/16 5:30pm Jeff:

I don't know why (maybe just temporal associations), but after hearing some of these tracks I'm thinking of the Pop-O-Pies.

Actually, did the Pop-O-Pies do some kind of anti-disco thing in addition to Truckin' a million times? If so, maybe the Insane Coho Lips appearance is to blame for my thinking of that project. Otherwise it's just the usual misfiring neurons.
Avatar Tue. 8/30/16 5:33pm Creamo Coyl:

I love Pop-O-Pies! They wrote on the best NYC diss songs ever, and it's still completely applicable 30+ years later.
They do have a parody disco cut.
Show is rulin', dudes!

Was that Devoto?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/30/16 5:38pm Jeff:

@Creamo Coyl: Oh yeah! Now I remember that one...

I hate those hipster idiots
that cop junk in the heroin parks.
And all those idle wealthy brats
that hang out on St. Marks.
Avatar Tue. 8/30/16 5:40pm Brian Turner:

@Creamo: better than Mikey Wild's "I Hate New York">?
Avatar Tue. 8/30/16 5:41pm JakeGould:

To be fair, Saint Marks is even worse nowadays… It’s like a crappy outdoor strip mall with bad food choices and most of the offerings are food.
Avatar Tue. 8/30/16 5:45pm Creamo Coyl:

I love Joe's Popopies saracastic anti-hippie anti-punk hippie-punkness. Plus he's actually got a great voice.

@Brian, I think I've heard that but I'll have to compare. It's only like 90 seconds, but Joe covers a lot of ground.

I wrote a NYC diss song once, but I dunno if it cracks any list.
Avatar Tue. 8/30/16 5:46pm Creamo Coyl:

@Jeff, yes! Nice lyric recall.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/30/16 5:55pm blee:

I always thought Fear's "New York's Alright if you like Saxophones" lyrics were pretty hilarious.

Thanks for cocking your heads today to look at the pix everybody.
