Don't know what any of today's cassettes are -- PLEASE HELP ME I.D. 'EM!
Avatar Sun. 9/17/17 2:50pm Tony Coulter:

A disclaimer for all you sticklers out there: I do have *some* idea what's on the "Home Taper Sampler" cassette, of course, but I'm not sure who some of the artists are, given that only last names appear, and I don't know any of the track titles.

Hello ?

In for the mystery show! Howdy, Tony and all!

Salut.

Heya. Pierre and James!

... and βrian! It's a rush for the front door....

this is going to be great I can tell
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/19/17 12:07pm JtotheK:

hi tony, hi everyone. i am traveling for work, hoping to catch most of the mystery show, no doubt it will be amazing!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 12:09pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, hey, JtotheK!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/19/17 12:13pm JtotheK:

this is great. i took my headphones out so my coworker can also listen. he's about ready to ask me to put my headphones back in.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 12:16pm Tony Coulter:

Just searched "McKinney - Counting" on discogs, and it came back with one hit: A Melba Moore album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 12:24pm northguineahills:

Quick, did you write all of the artists' names down???!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 12:25pm Tony Coulter:

Nah: they are collectively known as AAC, which is good enough for me. (Heya, NGH!)
Avatar    Tue. 9/19/17 12:27pm Sem Chumbo:

Hello from the right coast, Tony, and all.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 12:27pm Tony Coulter:

Unless, I guess, the improv took place at somewhere called the AAC ... or at an event sponsored by an organization called the AAC.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/19/17 12:27pm I am the Upsetter:

Mystery's!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 12:30pm Tony Coulter:

Ahoy, Sem and I Am!!
  Tue. 9/19/17 12:32pm JakeGould:

So it’s audio art? Came in late. Years?
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 12:33pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, JakeGould! This tape is from around '84 -- that much I know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 12:39pm listener james from westwood:

Makes a million times more sense than Trmup's speech to the UN today!
  Tue. 9/19/17 12:42pm JakeGould:

Well, once this show is archived and Google crunches it hopefully someone somewhere can find it and add context.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 12:42pm Tony Coulter:

That's what I'm hoping!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:02pm Yvang:

Hello Tony/listeners! Enjoying the mysterious sounds of the mystery cassettes!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:03pm Tony Coulter:

Greets, Yvang!

I guess in some weird way the mystery adds a bit of extra frisson.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:04pm Tony Coulter:

"Everything that I do is because of Genesis P. Orridge." There's a clue.....
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:05pm Tony Coulter:

... that leads nowhere.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 1:07pm JakeGould:

Logging in! So, are there 4 tapes in total you will be playing?
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:08pm Tony Coulter:

Yep -- though I'll only have time to play part of the fourth (the orangey one in the upper left).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 1:11pm JakeGould:

Thanks for clarifying! But damn… This makes me really want to do some detective work.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:16pm Mayuko:

Good afternoon, Tony and all!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:17pm Tony Coulter:

Hey there, Mayuko!! Good to see you here....
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:19pm Mayuko:

I'd still be very gladly listening even if this repetitive sound goes on throughout the rest of your show. Which one of the 4 tapes in the image is this?
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:20pm Tony Coulter:

It's the one on (your) upper right.....
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:22pm Tony Coulter:

The label was glued on upside down, but right way up it's a pic of an ivy-covered building.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:23pm Mayuko:

Ah, I see that's what you meant by Leafy label tape, I first thought they might have been magnolia flowers.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:29pm Tony Coulter:

"Frenetic destruction" -- that phrase gets repeated quite a bit. Another clue for all you sleuths.....
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:29pm glenn:

buena sera di italia.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:30pm Tony Coulter:

Ciao, Glenn!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:33pm Tony Coulter:

Actually, I think the phrase "frenetic destruction" slowly morphs into "phonetic structure." Or something ... maybe....
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 1:35pm listener james from westwood:

Leafy Label made excellent lunch music!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:36pm Tony Coulter:

Were you eating salad, I hope?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 1:39pm Webhamster Henry:

Not bad for music composed by vegetation.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:40pm Tony Coulter:

Webham! Heya!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 1:50pm northguineahills:

Leaf!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:51pm Tony Coulter:

Yep, it's Leaf Erikson....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/19/17 1:53pm I am the Upsetter:

My mind is going...
  Tue. 9/19/17 1:54pm epizootics:

Looking at the playlist, I'd wager a guess that Klee's given name is Mark. He made some music that's found on a few choice taper comps and also did some interesting art, a piece of which was a cover of Unsound.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/19/17 1:54pm I am the Upsetter:

"frenetic instruction"
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:56pm Tony Coulter:

@ I am the Upsetter: It seems to morph. The first time it sounded like "destruction" But then again, maybe I'm hallucinating!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/19/17 1:58pm I am the Upsetter:

Hard to say. Enjoying this show.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 1:59pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, epizootics!! Thanks for the tip -- that sounds like a good guess. I'll add "Mark" to the playlist.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 2:09pm Tony Coulter:

Late-breaking news: Someone very much in a position to make a good guess (he believes he once owned the tape) just now suggested (on FB) that the "Leafy Label" cassette is John Oswald. I must admit it doesn't sound like Oswald to me, but I will investigate further.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 2:12pm Tony Coulter:

I should add that he was reacting to my photos of the labels, not to the sound of the tape.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 2:20pm Webhamster Henry:

Oswald was never a frenetic destructor!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 2:27pm Tony Coulter:

Just remembered that I have at least one more mystery tape. Oh well -- it (they) will have to wait for a future show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 2:27pm Cecile:

I don't think I ever want to know who made this cassette.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 2:28pm coelacanth∅:

greetings Tony and hissters
...(just here for a moment, unfortunately)
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 2:28pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Cecile and coelacanth∅!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 2:29pm Cecile:

Guten Tag!

"hmmmm, I don't recognize this song"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 2:38pm (i)(k)EEE:

This tape goes really oddly with proofreading descriptions and blurbs for bullshit diet book bundles.
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 2:39pm Tony Coulter:

Eek, it's Ike!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/19/17 2:40pm JtotheK:

this song 'you are my favorite music' i'd purchase if it were issued on a 45.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/19/17 2:40pm I am the Upsetter:

(i)(k)EEE, I know thats not your cat but damn your avatar gets me every time!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 2:42pm 1k3:

This book teaches you every step, including a proven meal plan for burning fat, farting like a demon, and dropping your weight. This is a book of action. And farting. It doesn't just tell you to try harder. It tells you to fart harder. Like a hyena. Life rewards those who take matters into their own hands. And their own farts.

(I may have changed a few things there.)
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 2:50pm Tony Coulter:

The cassette on now is the one on the upper left.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 2:50pm ɨkɛ:

This is good. Maybe inspired by The Caretaker, or an inspiration for The Caretaker?
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 2:51pm Mayuko:

This is very beautiful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/19/17 2:54pm JtotheK:

great show today, thanks for sharing the mystery tapes, Tony!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 2:55pm Tony Coulter:

Here's a link to Cheyenne's upcoming FMA Listening Party playlist, which looks like it might be a tribute to William Berger, who — so sadly — has left us behind: wfmu.org...
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 2:55pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, JtotheK!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 9/19/17 2:56pm I am the Upsetter:

I like this one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 2:56pm listener james from westwood:

Thanks, Tony!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/19/17 2:57pm northguineahills:

Thanks Tony!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 2:58pm Mayuko:

oh it's already 3?! Thank you Tony for the wonderful ??s!!
Avatar Tue. 9/19/17 2:59pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks for throwing up -- I mean, showing up -- everyone. See you next week!
  Mon. 10/23/17 7:33pm Dee Kay:

I asked John about that mysterious tape he didn't recognize it as his. He'd often drop by and give me one of this tapes. They were all documented by him, not sure if that is still up on the web, but its not him. I always thought I would remember but you get old...
