Options Mid-Valley Mutations with Austin Rich: Playlist from May 10, 2022 Options

austinrich's avatar View austinrich's profile Options

A combination of collage, new experimental records and other bits and bobs, Mid-Valley Mutations is a tour through the mind of Austin Rich, who has been broadcasting in some form since 1998. Heavily influenced by Dr Demento, Don Joyce and old fashioned College Radio, Austin creates Audio Essays on a variety of subjects, and even just plays records, from time to time. Sometimes Live music and Interviews will grace the program, helping create a situation where you don't really know what you're going to hear, when you tune in. What you need to know is when you enter the Mid-Valley region, be prepared for the Musical Mutations... in whatever form they take.

Blood Rhythms! When I started DJing at WLUW, Arvo had the show after me at midnight. (When he showed up, haha)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:07pm Kat in Chicago:

He's an interesting fellow, to say the least.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:08pm Austin Rich:

@Kat: I think Bob Bucko Jr. introduced me to Arvo's music, so I reached out, and he sent me a care package of his music and art. I've interviewed him a couple times since. Interesting chap; I played a show with him opening for Blevin Blectum on my first tour.
Avatar 🎸 9:08pm Mr. X:

Are you sure this program is safe? I heard you can get hooked on phonics.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:08pm Kat in Chicago:

Oh that would have been a cool show, Austin!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:09pm Austin Rich:

I guarantee that the only thing addictive about Mid-Valley Mutations is the soothing sounds of the host's voice.

And the Heroin.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:10pm Austin Rich:

@Kat: I got to film Blevin twice when we both got to open for Negativland on the most recent West Coast tour. Blevin is SOOOO cool.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:12pm Austin Rich:

It's weird to listen to this conversation, and here horridus talk about playing a show while sick.

We used to do stuff like that before the pandemic. It sounds insane to me now.

He called the studio for this in 2017.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:13pm Austin Rich:

The phone is cutting out so much of the sound. We're only getting the high end.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:14pm Austin Rich:

I used to do a lot more stuff like this when I had a studio with a phone, and more actual gear. I've been meaning to outfit my studio with some device that can take calls / zoom chats / whatever, but I just haven't done it yet. Would love to get more live stuff like this going.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:15pm Austin Rich:

Here's a photo he sent me of the setup he was playing that evening:

I just saw Negativland in NYC last week, great show, and excellent openers too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm Kat in Chicago:

I've never seen Blevin but I hope to fix that someday.
  9:18pm ramencity:

'Ey up me ducks. Going to develop some film with this on in the background - that's 'artistic' yeah?

@Kat I saw Negativland once, they burnt some toast on stage.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19pm Kat in Chicago:

Haha I've seen Negativland twice and there was no toast action :(
  9:21pm ramencity:

Austin might've been at that show - maybe he remembers the background? I forget what the toast came from
  9:21pm ramencity:

They also played the "Man with NNN Fingers" song, cutting off a finger after each verse (spoiler alert - it was a glove w/ fake blood pods in it).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23pm Kat in Chicago:

I've seen video of that
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:23pm Austin Rich:

Sadly, I didn't get to see Negativland until the "It's All In Your Head Tour," in 2007? And they don't do any of the classic material. (I heard that the burning toast thing became unpopular, because it was so smelly and potentially dangerous. But crowds seemed to love it.)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:24pm Austin Rich:

@Kat: when I get around to editing the footage I have of Blevin, I'll share it. I LOVE their style. Very cool stuff.
  9:24pm andrewBunny:

Good Hello! Austin, my 'zine arrived today. Thx so much! Yr "I Thought So" article sounds just ike every day I work at the pharmacy!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:25pm Austin Rich:

@AndrewBunny: that was fast! I'm glad it arrived safely. Yeah, a lot of retail is, unfortunately, the same-as-it-ever-was. That's why it's so relatable!
Avatar 🎸 9:26pm Mr. X:

I saw Negativland at the WOW Hall, Eugene, 4-25-1993.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm Kat in Chicago:

This music is quite lovely
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:27pm Austin Rich:

@Mr. X: I bet that's the show @ramencitykid was at.
  🎸 9:27pm Ellen Lovebug:

Hi, all, sorry, I was working yesterday and missed Box 13. I'll be on and off tonight; my landscaper is here installing my raised bed for growing organic veggies. How are you all?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:27pm Austin Rich:

I love Derek's music.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:27pm Austin Rich:

Good Hello, @Ellen!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:28pm Austin Rich:

It's okay. We all gotta do what we gotta do.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:30pm Austin Rich:

I should mention: Derek uses looping pedals and other devices, so he's playing alone... but accompanying himself many times over. He sounds like a full orchestra at times... but it's just him, and a few pedals.
  🎸 9:30pm Ellen Lovebug:

I first met Mark Hosler in Portland at the End Corporate Dominance event during the Icky's era. I was hosting a War Resisters League show on Radio Free Cascadia! at the time, and he gave me a copy of The Story of the Letter U and the Numeral 2 for the station
Avatar 🎸 9:30pm Mr. X:

Didn't King Crimson cover this? "Elephant Talk"
  9:31pm andrewBunny:

I was at the Negativland IAIYH-FM show at the Baghdad in Portland. Still have the ticket stub and eye mask...
  🎸 9:31pm Ellen Lovebug:

Eye mask?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:32pm Austin Rich:

@AndrewBunny: I have the eyemask around here somewhere, too! I was thinking about trying to find audio of that show, as I remember it being a little different than the album.
  9:32pm andrewBunny:

It was supposed to be live radio, so they handed out masks to make it a purely audio experience
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:32pm Austin Rich:

@Ellen: at one show, they gave us sleep masks, so we could experience the "audio" better. (I still watched, as I'd never seen them before, and wanted to watch the gear Don was using.)
  9:33pm andrewBunny:

Same here, Austin!
Avatar 9:33pm HyperDose:

The Stranger Things scores are out of this world
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Austin Rich:

I love Negativland, and I try to keep up. But I was an obsessive Don Joyce fan more than anything else.
  🎸 9:34pm Ellen Lovebug:

That's really cool
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:34pm Austin Rich:

I've hooked on these Stranger Things. It's like Crack to me.
  9:36pm ramencity:

(film loaded and ready to develop) -- @Mr X -- I consulted my spotty list of shows seen, and that is indeed the same Negativland show I saw! Funny, I thought it was more late 90s. My note says the openers were "Arlan, Vince and Robert from Onomatopoeia"
Avatar 9:38pm HyperDose:

Austin clearly has friends in loud places
  9:39pm andrewBunny:

I have an album by Aube that plays backwards like that, but on both sides. I got it from Anthem Records while I was living in Portland.
Avatar 🎸 9:39pm Mr. X:

Austin wound up with a bunch of Arlan's tapes that had been maliciously disappeared from Arlan's possession. I believe Austin was able to get them back to him.
  9:41pm ramencity:

Malicious disappearing in the worst. I spent some time early covid trying to make a list of shows seen, and it turns out Onomatopoeia won as band I'd seen most often - twenty times!
  🎸 9:41pm Ellen Lovebug:

@Ramencity Arlan, Vince, and Robert are among my favorite people. I spent a huge amount of time with them in the 90s, Robert especially. I ended up playing a show with Arlan and Vince and playing a set with Arlan under our band name, Heart Therapy
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:42pm Austin Rich:

I still have those tapes! I haven't been to Eugene where I could meet up with Arlan to return them.

My friend Colin bought that box of tapes from someone he met at Goodwill, who had this box and was trying to get rid of them. Colin bought them for like a couple dollars, and now gave them to me to return to Arlan.

As I understand the story: Arlan got kicked out of his place, and all his possessions were on the street, where a lot of his music stuff was all stolen.
Avatar 🎸 9:43pm Mr. X:

Arlan had a radio show on KRVM which was a lot like some of the more collage-like editions of Mid-Valley Mutations. I can't remember the name of his show, though...
  9:44pm ramencity:

I used to listen to that show but I don't remember the name either. @Ellen, that is very cool!
Avatar 🎸 9:45pm Mr. X:

Yes, his landlord put all his shit out on the street, not knowing that Arlan had already paid his rent.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:45pm Austin Rich:

As I understand it, that box of tapes (and a few others) were the backbone for that radio show. I was gonna sample these tapes and make a show, but that feels weird given that this is Arlan's IP.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:46pm Austin Rich:

Ellen is connected to all the OG Eugene folx.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:48pm Austin Rich:

Between Ellen, Mr. X. ramencitykid, and the guy that runs the Panic On 13th blog... you could probably piece together a fair amount of Eugene music history.
Avatar 🎸 9:49pm Mr. X:

+ Don Haugen
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:49pm Austin Rich:

Don knowns everything, but he would rather sit back and drink a beer and nod appreciatively when we get it all right.
Avatar 🎸 9:50pm Mr. X:

Btw, Don Haugen does design work on the annual catalog of my brother's bicycle business, Co-Motion Cycles.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:50pm Austin Rich:

That makes sense, Mr. X. Don's really good.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:51pm Austin Rich:

Don and I keep threatening to get together soon, but "soon" keeps getting further and further away. At least a song of his will appear on a comp I'm almost done with... and a song of Ellen's will be on there, too. (And Chris / I Died.)
  🎸 9:52pm Ellen Lovebug:

Thank you all for the compliments and the nostalgia. <3 Purest love
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:52pm Austin Rich:

Whoops! Wrong speed! Now you can tell it was live.
  🎸 9:52pm Ellen Lovebug:

Yes I am utterly thrilled about the compilation!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:56pm Austin Rich:

That comp should be going to press soon. Just need to get one more track back from the original artist, who wants to do a new cut / edit of their song before we release it. (And we have to... their original song is an uninterrupted 30 minute piece. We need to cut it down a little, anyway.
  🎸 9:58pm Ellen Lovebug:

It's worth waiting for
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:58pm Austin Rich:

(Wrapping up these comps and editing some other stuff that's been released has been the reason I don't have a strictly "new" show this week.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:02pm Austin Rich:

"Girl. Goat. Gun." That seems a very odd choice of words, in that order.
  🎸 10:02pm Ellen Lovebug:

I have to go back out to my garden but will hope to catch you all next week
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:02pm Austin Rich:

See you next time, Ellen.
Avatar 🎸 10:02pm Mr. X:

Take care, Ellen!
  10:03pm andrewBunny:

Moog sounds from the Nonesuch Guide to Electronic Music! I still have my box set from when I special ordered it in the 70s!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:04pm Austin Rich:

My copy was a gift, from one of the carpenter's at KMUZ, who had it, but was hoping to find a new home for it. That new home was my collection.
Avatar 🎸 10:04pm Mr. X:

Sounds like they were just twiddling knobs and plugging in patches just to see what would happen.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:05pm Austin Rich:

Sort of, Mr. X. There's parts that are more instructional, and others that are more demonstrational. I'm playing selections from both records at the same time, overtop each other.
  10:06pm andrewBunny:

Krause came out with a 1 record volume 2 to highlight new techniques. Found that one years ago in a used record store, but can't remember where. Mr X: it's pretty minimal. Each track highlights a different module or composition format on the Moog.
Avatar 🎸 10:12pm Mr. X:

Classical mash-ups remind me of when I was stage manager at Beall Concert Hall, walking past all the practice rooms before the show, where all the musicians were warming up different sections of music all at once.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:13pm Austin Rich:

I love that idea, Mr. X. I'm sure that's how John Cage would do it.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:14pm Austin Rich:

All these classical records were found a thrift stores, and I don't know much about classical, except what I can pick up from @ramencitykid when he used to listen. But I found a few that I like.
Avatar 🎸 10:15pm Mr. X:

Holst's Planets is a favorite. Though I first heard the Tomita version before any orchestral versions.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:16pm Austin Rich:

I should check out the Tomita version. I have some of his stuff, but not that!

Planets is very fun. Super lively! It's easy to get into, because it sounds like movie soundtrack music before there was movie soundtrack music.
  10:19pm andrewBunny:

Ditto, X. Of course, at the time, I was obsessively trying to find anything vaguely electronic. Used to scour the electronic music section of the Schwann Catalog and my high school library for clues and inspiration
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:20pm Austin Rich:

I feel pretty lucky, because by the time I was coming up, you could pretty easily find electronic music if you wanted to. But I certainly love all the early experiments in electronic music.
Avatar 🎸 10:21pm Mr. X:

Beall Hall has an elevator built into the stage for lifting pianos up from the basement onto the stage. I feel like I should be pushing the Steinway onto the elevator right now.
  10:25pm ramencity:

(film successfully developed!) Charles Ives had a piece that was supposed to sound like two different marching bands walking past each other.

Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:31pm Austin Rich:

It's hard to pick a favorite of the Surfer's albums, but I have a real soft spot for this one and the one with all the drawings instead of song titles. I think those two hold up the best.
  10:32pm Heather:

Wanted to say hi everyone and, Austin, as always, awesome show tonight! Tuned in and enjoying it a lot!
Avatar 🎸 10:32pm Mr. X:

I can't pronounce the name. We always just called it "Pigwad."
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:33pm Austin Rich:

Ahhhh! Heather and I recorded some radio earlier tonight. (Probably something that might end up here... as well as on our Max Podcast. And Maybe Heather's show, too.)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:33pm Austin Rich:

We always just called it "Pee-Owed." (Like you're "Pissed Off," but you're spelling it out.)
Avatar 🎸 10:35pm Mr. X:

Gibby has a thing about celebrities.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:36pm Austin Rich:

I think all his pets were named after celebrities. I know they often had a "band dog," who would travel with them when they would tour in the old days. I don't know if they continued that into the later years.
  10:38pm andrewBunny:

It was supposed to be pronounced Pee-owed, the abbreviation for pissed off.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:39pm Austin Rich:

Minority Opinion, but: I think Generic Flipper is one of the few perfect albums ever made. No wasted songs. Perfect lyrics. Slow when everyone else was fast. Psychedelic when everyone else was punk. I can't get enough of this record.
  10:39pm andrewBunny:

Claudia (my first wife) and I each made mixtapes for our low-budget wedding. This track was on mine and cleared the room.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:39pm Austin Rich:

Flipper used to lock the doors so audiences couldn't leave... for that exact reason!
  10:40pm andrewBunny:

LOL!
Avatar 🎸 10:41pm Mr. X:

Flipper was always that one band in the Subterranean Catalog that none of your friends had, so you had no idea what they sounded like. But later they caught on somewhat.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:41pm Austin Rich:

My favorite Flipper story is that, in the old days, they would ask their friends to go to the shows to boo them and make a big scene about hating the show. As time went on, their "true" fans would show up with protest signs and anti-flipper t-shirts.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:42pm Austin Rich:

Someday I will record a complete cover of this entire album. Each track will have guests on it. I've been wanting to do this for a number of years now.
  10:43pm andrewBunny:

i need to be one of the bass players on that!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:44pm Austin Rich:

Their basslines are perfect.
Avatar 🎸 10:44pm Mr. X:

I would love to do a cover of "Brainwash," though it's not on that album.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:46pm Austin Rich:

Yeah, "Brainwash," is classic!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:47pm Austin Rich:

Speaking of "classics."
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:48pm Austin Rich:

This song in particular seems to have held up TREMENDOUSLY well over the years.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:48pm Austin Rich:

"GIVE UP."

Tell me about it.
Avatar 🎸 10:49pm Mr. X:

More like stupidity has held up tremendously, so this song still applies.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:49pm Austin Rich:

Well, now we're just splitting the hairs on the heads of the dimwitted, but: yes.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:50pm Austin Rich:

It's like when they re-made "Beavis & Butthead," and they both seemed really smart in the new shows. Then it turned out that America is really dumb now, so they just seem smarter than they used to.
  🎸 10:50pm brad253:

Bartok, Stravinsky the Butthole Surfers and Negativeland! Excellent taste sir.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:51pm Austin Rich:

Ahhhhh, thanks @brad253. I get most of my taste from @ramencitykid and listening to the radio...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:52pm Austin Rich:

Been thinking about doing a cover of this one, too. There's a few Big Black songs I would love to cover.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:52pm Austin Rich:

"Never anything to do in this town. Probably learn to die in this town."

It's almost more relevant now than it was then.

Plus, it wouldn't hurt my own bass playing to figure out how to play some of those licks.
  🎸 10:54pm brad253:

Flipper is my next band to check into. I missed that bus.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:55pm Austin Rich:

Those early Flipper recordings are brill, but some of the later incarnations are hit-or-miss. They're one of those bands now where there's several dead members, so I think there's just one guy left anymore? But he keeps trying...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 10:58pm Austin Rich:

I need to get back to my hobo-epic, and play all these train records I've collected.

I miss this band so much. Their shows were AMAZING. Saw them twice, both times were BRILL!

(Two bass players, drums. Their shows were epic.)

The 1985 sci-fi film Enemy Mine is worth watching.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 11:04pm Austin Rich:

I love that movie, Mr. X. I've seen it a bunch, as recently as 10 years ago. It's a really good piece of sci-fi, that sort of got lost in the mix there with all the other great 80's sci-fi.
