Hey, Tony and all! Getting fancy on that Club of Rome card with the long s symbol, eh?
Avatar Tue. 5/21/19 11:59am Tony Coulter:

Heya, Jameß!!
Avatar Tue. 5/21/19 12:03pm Tony Coulter:

Can anyone ID today's record under the covers? Here's a clue: The band was a new wave/post-punk/art punk band from San Francisco
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 5/21/19 12:04pm Sem:

Hiss everybody happy?
Hiya, Tony, LJfW. Can't wait!
  Tue. 5/21/19 12:04pm Dean:

The cover is familiar, but I was thinking UK new wave/post-punk...

Hello tapeworms friends!

Hiya, Yvang!
Avatar Tue. 5/21/19 12:09pm Tony Coulter:

OK: here's another clue about today's mystery record. The band was named after a then-popular Christian talk show. (That's almost giving it away!)
Avatar Tue. 5/21/19 12:10pm northguineahills:

I once drove w/ friends 6 hours to Atlanta to see Asmus Tiechens to witness a kinetic/sound sculpture in a coffee house. We were about a third of the audience (two cars)
  Tue. 5/21/19 12:11pm Dean:

700 Club...which I actually don't know as a band.
Avatar Tue. 5/21/19 12:11pm Tony Coulter:

Heya, NGH! Two cars? Was it a drive-in coffee-to-go kind of place? Sound intriguing!
Avatar Tue. 5/21/19 12:12pm Tony Coulter:

@ Dean: Right you are! It's this thing: www.discogs.com...
  Tue. 5/21/19 12:12pm Dean:

Still, cover's familiar. It's a 45rpm EP?

Hola, Tony C, gang

The tape, she hiss. Hello Tony and everyone else!
Avatar Tue. 5/21/19 12:24pm Tony Coulter:

This is one of those annoying tapes that doesn't say it's been dolby-ized, but seems to have been anyway. Right or wrong, I went with dolby B .
Avatar Tue. 5/21/19 12:25pm Tony Coulter:

Greetingssssss, Cmurtha!

Hi Tony, hi everyone!
Avatar Tue. 5/21/19 12:35pm Tony Coulter:

Oops: forgot to mention that this side gets warbly/mangly at the beginning and end -- but only very briefly. And it could possibly be intentional (??)
Avatar Tue. 5/21/19 12:36pm Tony Coulter:

Hiya, JtotheK!
  Tue. 5/21/19 12:46pm Ike:

Sounds good!
Avatar Tue. 5/21/19 12:47pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Ike! Happy Burp Day! (FB told me to tell you that.)
  Tue. 5/21/19 1:12pm gen ken:

This is good music for making psychedelic fork postcards!
Avatar Tue. 5/21/19 1:13pm Tony Coulter:

Gen! Ken! Hiya!
  Tue. 5/21/19 1:15pm gen ken:

did you know that Asmus Tietchen's father was an officer in the same trans-Atlantic ship where Conrad Schnitzler was working in the coal room when he was a young man? True.
Avatar Tue. 5/21/19 1:18pm Tony Coulter:

Really! Amazing!

Folks: Gen Ken (Montgomery) was a collaborator of Schniztler's, and released the tape we'll be hearing next. He's also a big friend of FMU.
Avatar Tue. 5/21/19 1:18pm Tony Coulter:

And a master maker of fork-themed postcards.
  Tue. 5/21/19 1:19pm gen ken:

... inspired by Tony's radio show!
Avatar Tue. 5/21/19 1:25pm northguineahills:

Club of Rome, new to me, and digdug!
Avatar Tue. 5/21/19 1:26pm Tony Coulter:

@ NGH: Club of Rome is actually just Asmus Tietchens in disguise
Avatar Tue. 5/21/19 1:28pm northguineahills:

Thanks for the info, Tony!
  Tue. 5/21/19 1:32pm Ike:

Farcebook strikes again, ha! Mark Hurst has warned us all, yet some of us can’t give up the addiction... though I’ve curtailed my use significantly.

Engrossing.

Club of Rome, not to be confused w/ the post-rock band, Rome....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 5/21/19 1:49pm Granny Spicy Tuna:

Hey Tony, i AM drinking spicy tea! It goes well with this particular soundscape.
Avatar Tue. 5/21/19 1:50pm northguineahills:

nice, Sem!
Avatar Tue. 5/21/19 2:02pm Tony Coulter:

I guess in a way this is sort of like quad....
  Tue. 5/21/19 2:09pm Dean:

Why not combine this approach, Tony, with last week's whole side of an album theme? Play the whole sides of two albums at once. Even the same album, but on two turntables.
Avatar Tue. 5/21/19 2:11pm Tony Coulter:

Well, that might work if one turntable was pinned all the way to the left channel, and the other all the way to the right.
Avatar Tue. 5/21/19 2:12pm Tony Coulter:

(If I was playing two copies of the same album, I mean.)
  Tue. 5/21/19 2:20pm Dean:

Even with the channels blended, the results could be fun. Kinda like my buddy's treatment of Gerry Rafferty's "Baker Street" synch'ing multiple playbacks of the same record with eccentric spindle holes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7CCB59CTZmM
  Tue. 5/21/19 2:23pm Dean:

For that matter, I could open up a second pop-up player and stream two Tape Hiss shows, or Tape Hiss and Kurt's current show on the broadcast stream.
Avatar Tue. 5/21/19 2:26pm Tony Coulter:

Yeah, that's the patented, much-loved chaos/collage approach. Thing about this Schniztler thingee is that he planned out how the two halves would go together, while allowing for some flexibility and the ability to mix live (tho I'm not doing that -- I'm just letting them play).

I think there was an Oh Yeah Ferris Bueller sample in there a min or two ago.

Hi, Matt! (Heimat)

Didn't catch that....

Thanks, TC. Would never had heard these things except for your show. Grateful for that. See you next time, if the river don't rise.

enjoyed the program, thanks for the tapes Tony!

Super glad I was in on this week's Hiss—thanks, Tony!

Thank you Tony, that one flew by
