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.

Howdy, friends. We're just waiting for the next night of cold and wet here in the PNW.
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 4:48pm King_Ludd:

It's sunny in England. My 87 year old mum has been listening to the show with me. She's more used to Carmen and Tosca so Ecstatic Vision was a bit of a departure.

Hahaha salut to your mom and the Ludd Gang --- glad the weather's perkin up for my visit!

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/11/17 5:00pm Michael 98145:

maybe the humor comes from the idea that it was preserved on record

Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 5:04pm King_Ludd:

Brian. It's a bit parky in the shadows. Bring your thermal undies and some sunblock. I love this show and listen religiously - never more than at this present moment, during the marriage of our illustrious Eco-Prince and the Queen of All Our Hearts™. Carmichael: it's the Reverend E.L. Wisty.

One of the offramps for Palm Springs is called the Sonny Bono Memorial Highway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/11/17 5:06pm Michael 98145:

that particular Bono is commemorated by a statue in the Palm Springs Airport

King_Ludd, your Eco-Prince would likely have been an excellent progressive King.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/11/17 5:12pm Michael 98145:

... this sounds like a Spicer press conference
Avatar    Tue. 4/11/17 5:13pm geezerette:

...only more animated.
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 5:14pm King_Ludd:

Geezerette. "As the liberty lads o'er the sea; Bought their freedom, and cheaply, with blood,; So we, boys, we; Will die fighting, or live free,; And down with all kings but King Ludd". ;)
Avatar    Tue. 4/11/17 5:15pm geezerette:

Have you noticed that Spicer's hair has gone from brown to white in less than three months? His springs are going to pop any day now.
Avatar    Tue. 4/11/17 5:17pm geezerette:

haha, all hail King Ludd!

this has certainly been an -entertaining- few hours.

Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 5:23pm King_Ludd:

Geezerette It's the hardest job in the world though isn't it, Spiceys? No wonder he's gone from a boyish youth to a haunted foghorn in a few short weeks. Milton had it easier justifying the ways of God to man.
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 5:23pm fabricaguy:

Jumped in just in time. Thankful I missed Thin Lizzy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/11/17 5:24pm Dave in Vermont:

I was bummed when I heard I missed Think Lizzy.
Avatar    Tue. 4/11/17 5:24pm Brian Turner:

I was here before and after.
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 5:24pm upsetter5001:

When does Sun Ra start playing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/11/17 5:24pm Dave in Vermont:

I thin therefore I am
Avatar    Tue. 4/11/17 5:25pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Just got here. Someone tell Lizzy to have a decent meal for once.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/11/17 5:25pm Michael 98145:

( I think Spicer has more in common with Aleister Crowley )
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 5:26pm fabricaguy:

Sorry, I know taste is relative (Hitler probably said that) but after working at a bar with a jukebox which inspired people to constantly play Thin Lizzy, I have grown intolerant of their rock and roll music.
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 5:27pm fabricaguy:

I guess I should blame Metallica and Ted Leo for making Thin Lizzy "cool" to totally different demographics.
Avatar    Tue. 4/11/17 5:27pm Brian Turner:

More than likely everyone played The Boys Are Back In Town over and over, and I hate that song. The s/t LP, Shades of a Blue Orphanage, and Vagabonds of the Western World are completely great records
Avatar    Tue. 4/11/17 5:28pm Brian Turner:

Really? Ted Leo has altered the state of demographics' interest in music?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 4/11/17 5:28pm Dave in Vermont:

And Spoon I was thinking, fabricaguy. I can totally relate to nurturing hatred for something good via overexposure. One of the things I love about FMU is how some of those things can be recontextualized.
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 5:29pm King_Ludd:

Michael. I hope Led Zeppelin don't become obsessed with Sean Spicer now. The flirtation with trip hop was bad enough.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 5:30pm common:

Wild, man
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 5:32pm fabricaguy:

that Third Man edition of The Stooges.... where's that for sale?
Avatar    Tue. 4/11/17 5:32pm geezerette:

King_Ludd, it's hard to sympathize with any of them. He looks transparent now but speaks with the same opacity as ever.
Avatar    Tue. 4/11/17 5:34pm geezerette:

...and ever shifting hair color is a thing with the whole group.
Avatar    Tue. 4/11/17 5:36pm geezerette:

Michael@5:25, hmmn,plausible...
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 5:37pm King_Ludd:

This Tropical Trash record is fantastic.

Avatar    Tue. 4/11/17 5:47pm Marshall Stacks:

Huh, this sounds like a song about Joseph Beuys.
Avatar    Tue. 4/11/17 5:47pm geezerette:

I also like Marmite.
Avatar    Tue. 4/11/17 5:48pm Brian Turner:

You would be right about that MS
Avatar    Tue. 4/11/17 5:48pm geezerette:

Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 5:50pm King_Ludd:

fabricaguy. And she wouldn't give it to me? Geezer. I gave some Marmite to my American girlfriend once. Her face was a picture. She said "Is it supposed to taste like this?". Oooh. Hot Chocolate.
Avatar    Tue. 4/11/17 5:51pm geezerette:

Yeah, my British friends were actually horrified that I liked it!
Avatar    Tue. 4/11/17 5:53pm geezerette:

Thanks Brian Turner!!! Super fun show!!!
Have an excellent trip.

I second that emotion. When are you in Blighty Brian? And where?
Avatar    Tue. 4/11/17 5:55pm Brian Turner:

Thanks everyone. Tune in for Martha next week and Donna the week after. See you at the Record Fair in Brooklyn April 28-30, I'll have a table with Tom Lax so say hi.
Avatar    Tue. 4/11/17 5:55pm Brian Turner:

London. Was supposed to do Safe as Milk in Prestatyn but got cancelled~!
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 5:55pm fabricaguy:

this The Classical is good, i know it sounds nothing like it but it reminded me of AC Marias. Probably just because I've been listening to a lot of AC Marias.
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 5:57pm Clara Sanchez:

Thanks Brian! Have fun in London!
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 5:58pm King_Ludd:

I heard that it got cancelled. Choker. It sounded like it would've been good. If you're flying United take care. ;) Hope you have a fun trip mate.
