Options Brian Turner: Playlist from April 10, 2012 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.

Wooooo! Jandek today!
The still-living "Man In Black"...

great start, brian...

Um, It gets worse here every day?
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:06pm Dead Corporate Eyes:

this is some revolutionary stuff to be playin' in my white-collar office. Hi peeeeeeps.

The Seditionment Ensemble Club
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:08pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: I've liked it ever since Brian starting playing the reissue.
Screed-y stuff turns me off, but at least when they put a great beat and rhythm to it, it becomes listenable and you can take note of their valid points better than if it was a written manifesto.
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:08pm Cheri Pi:

This lady has PMS like me. nothing wrong with it either.
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:10pm r howard:

I suspect this is 20 mins in length
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:10pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, like "Wendy Williams punk meets PMS"!
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:11pm Cheri Pi:

She wants to throw her stapler at the guy in the next cube.
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:12pm r howard:

anyone know who're the representative's pals for this session?
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:13pm Matt from Springfield:

OH WOW, NOH MERCY! That's even more unusual than their "usual"! Electronic shrieks instead of percussion!!
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:13pm Matt from Springfield:

Not to mention Shirley & Dolly Collins--Joe McG's played them before, truly amazing singers from the 60s.
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:14pm Rob:

Not sure who's playing, but is that Rachael Wadham with the zither?
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:16pm hubba:

Geeze BT, trying to make everyone look bad!? Show is off to a killer start!
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:17pm hubba:

huh, huh... I said geeze
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:18pm Danne D:

Jandek on WFMU is roughly equivalent to Elvis emerging from that gas station he's been secretly working at since faking his death in '77 and doing a comeback special. Very excited for a great moment in the station's history :)

Hey to BT and everyone else :)
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:18pm Danne D:

And now a cover of Heroin - this is a killer start!
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:19pm r howard:

cheers cb (Y)
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:21pm Matt from Springfield:

@Danne: Or else, the Jandek 30th Annivesary Special! Back to where "he all began"!
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:22pm hubba:

3lp set!! totally worth it... there is a disparity between being a music lover and working for a living... i'll be damned if i eat off that Germs picture dics, but i sold my grandma's plates to buy it...
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:24pm Murphy Kat:

jesus - evil fucking song. thanks...
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:25pm mo:

is jandek on later?
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:26pm mike noble in nyc:

would you believe, i originally tried to book jandek for a SSD/UCB show?
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:27pm Danne D:

Hmm, given that it's Moe Tucker does that make it a 1/2 cover? Brings me back to perhaps the only cool moment in the history of MTV. I think it was like the 20th anniversary of the albums release or some such but it was the first time the Velvets had been all together in like forever and they showed the whole 10 minutes of them playing Heroin live with a news-break. Truly amazing.
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:27pm Matt from Springfield:

@mike noble: That would be an appropriate UCB guest--but alas, Jandek doesn't like a public audience I guess. Wants to remain mysterious...
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:28pm Danne D:

@mike noble I completely believe that - you are a diligent one after all.
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:29pm Matt from Springfield:

@mike: Speaking of unusual guests, was it you who booked Brute Force that one time? That was one crazy performance!
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:32pm mike noble in nyc:

that was me, though i can't really take credit. his people reached out to me.
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:33pm Cheri Pi:

3 cheers for Bone Awl!
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:37pm chris:

Like a bone awl to the skull...
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:37pm glenn:

speaking of teabagging, i see santorum has admitted defeat.
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:40pm Chris from DC:

Good riddance, Rick.
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:40pm chris:

he may claim they held him down and tried to put a banana in his bum
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:42pm paul:

nice, animals within animals! i just toured w/ some of the guys in that collective
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:42pm Sean Daily:

So... I take that African soul is coming?
Avatar Tue. 4/10/12 3:42pm BT:

Paul do you have a contact? They had written about coming here with some others.... but I lost the message.
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:43pm Matt from Springfield:

Africa Soul is coming.
Will YOU be ready for it....?
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:46pm paul:

the tour already happened, they got around to sending the cds late i guess. i don't have an email address for anyone, we did all the organizing via facebook
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:47pm paula pc:

am loving Xaddax -- segment on Diane Kamikaze's 3/29 show was terrific
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:49pm hubba:

BT, knock it off... this is out of control...
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:51pm hubba:

oh, I didn't really mean that.
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:54pm cb:

Two truly brilliants sets, Brian, pumping me up for some Jandek!
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:56pm Mr Donut:

  Tue. 4/10/12 3:56pm hubba:

The poetry out loud recs were once available from fusetron, looks like their gone, and de stijl now has them, or has their own pile... they are originals... and totally mind melting!!!

i'll shut my face now and enjoy.
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:57pm BZ:

Heard Littlefield is sold out
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:58pm Mr Donut:

Can you tell us how much Kraftwerk cost? Just curious
  Tue. 4/10/12 3:58pm Matt from Springfield:

  Tue. 4/10/12 3:58pm Mary Wing:

Thanks for the plug, Brian!

  Tue. 4/10/12 4:00pm Rob:

the ship is out of sight
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:00pm stAllio!:

paul is correct that the cut party tour is over, but you can get more info about animals within animals at http://animalswithinanimals.com and links to other acts on the tour at http://badtaste4life.com/cutparty2012tour/
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:01pm Matt from Springfield:

I wonder if Beatniks would've liked those poems, non-ironically?
(finger snaps)
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:02pm Mr Donut:

sorry. tacky...
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:04pm Woo:

Wow, I like this. I was prepared to hate.
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:05pm r howard:

ahh, this is the good shit (Y)
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:06pm Matt from Springfield:

@Woo: So it always goes with Jandek: do you hate that you love it, or love that you hate it? :)
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:06pm glenn:

dear jandek, please please please tune your guitar.
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:07pm Kris Kristofferson:

You know I never wanted to admit it, I've always been a bit envious of Jandek's songwriting abilities.
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:08pm G:

@glenn: microtonalism!
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:09pm Chris from DC:

There are some gems in the catalog. Always been partial to "Blue Corpse."
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:09pm Woo:

Love it, hate it, I'm still not spending money on it. Although I sent a check for the pledge drive so I guess I am paying for it.
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:11pm paul:

the album "where do you go from here" from last year is seriously incredible. mostly instrumental, and even the songs he sings are actually quite pretty.
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:12pm G:

@paul: think of all the practice he's had since at least as far back as 1978
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:15pm Rob:

I wasn't concentrating during the intro - is this being broadcast live, or was it recorded earlier?
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:16pm Jimb:

Would the representative like to go out for some beers?
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:17pm BSI:

What the sam hill is going on in here?
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:18pm Tony:

I'm guessing it's pre-recorded since Ken mentioned on Twitter seeing Jandek at the station a few weeks ago.
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:18pm kata:

BT said it was recorded at the end of March
Avatar Tue. 4/10/12 4:19pm BT:

Yes, recorded March 25th at WFMU.
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:20pm Bill:

Has anyone ever ordered a CD from Corwood Industries? Do I just send a check & tell them which CDs I want?
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:22pm Rob:

@Bill - yeah. It's totally worth ordering from him direct, too... I've done it a few times, and each time I've enclosed a short note or letter. Each parcel comes with a reply letter, answering any questions
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:26pm Bill:

Thanks. Any suggestions on which to get?
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:29pm Mary Wing:

The website says "20 or more any mix 50% discount" So if you buy 20 CDs @ $8 each, it will only cost you $80 instead of $160? Bargain!
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:30pm Mr Donut:

I like Glasgow Sunday (live) myself. Richard Youngs on woozy bass.
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:30pm Chris from DC:

Ready for the House, Telegraph Melts, and Blue Corpse are a good start. The recent live catalog sounds really interesting.
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:30pm Matt from Springfield:

@Mary: After your Kraftwerk show, can I guess what we'll be hearing the week after...
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:31pm r howard:

'chair beside a window' is lovely and crazy
Avatar Tue. 4/10/12 4:31pm BT:

They talked of this being "Jersey City Sunday", so curious to see if that comes true. would be amazing if it does....
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:33pm Mary Wing:

You want an all-Jandek show, Matt? Really? :-)
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:33pm Rob:

The first one is a good introduction to the work as a whole (Ready for the House). The later ones cover a massive stylistic range - best intro to the noisier punk style is probably Telegraph Melts (1986), best poppy one maybe Blue Corpse. (I agree with Chris from DC). My favourite 90s one is New Town... Then the live ones are great too: Portland Thursday is the last one I got, and it's awesome.
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:33pm hubba:

the sound is top notch!! i was starting to drift off... similar to the manhattan meets portland live stuff i've heard... can't help but think of christina carter/charlambides and this houston-based (?) rep... connection? Tom Carter played in SF a few years ago, but that was a real ugly sounding show, the way bay area rock sounds really ugly, like a bad trip.
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:35pm hubba:

all the live gigs are to be released eventually (supposedly)... quite the undertaking
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:37pm Rob:

Will this show get an official Corwood Industries pressing in the future I wonder? 'Jersey City Sunday'?
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:39pm Chris from DC:

Will it be archived I wonder?
Avatar Tue. 4/10/12 4:40pm BT:

@ Chris, it will be archived, not downloadable. @rob, see above
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:43pm Matt from Springfield:

Whew! Jandek outage there for a while! Back!

@Mary: To be perfectly honest, I liked that you played a COUPLE of Jandek songs recently. 3 hours of it would just destroy the concept! (And our patience!) :)
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:43pm Chris from DC:

Good enough for me. Thanks!
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:43pm Rob:

@BT Thanks. Did the Rep give any titles for the pieces, by the way?
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:43pm mike noble in nyc:

one of the most incredible live shows i've ever seen was jandek with Tim Foljahn and Pete Nolan at some weird theater on the LES, april 14, 2007. at some point i realized that large numbers of people were walking out, which surprised me, until i looked at my watch and realized they had been playing for about 2 hours straight! and they kept playing for maybe another 40 minutes after that point. maybe a half dozen "songs" at most. much heavier sounding than the jandek I was used to up to that point.
Avatar Tue. 4/10/12 4:44pm BT:

He didn't...
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:46pm Matt from Springfield:

This one goes out to Andy Breckman...
Avatar Tue. 4/10/12 4:47pm BT:

I saw that show Mike. I went to another show with Pete sometime after that night and I picked his brain for Jandek personal knowledge --- safe to say that even after this WFMU visit I still don't know much more. But really enjoyed this visit, he was really nice as was everybody.
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:47pm Matt from Springfield:

@mike: Wow--that is heavy! But I'm sure that at least SOME people were into the entire set.
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:50pm hubba:

@mike this was my experience in SF, maybe... this song about a fireman sent people flying for the rafters... it was incredibly polarizing and hypnotic; i was captivated... it was, like i mentioned, really off-sounding with thundering late-80's rock bass, like nothing fit, and Sterling was just convulsing yet reserved, kinda Beefheartian... it was a unique representation... my partner was so drunk and laughing hysterically... she was like, "i thought this was going to be boring like all those cds you played me, but this is super fun!" She is not a fan per se, but holds some tinge of reverence now.

back to shutting face and listening...
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:50pm Rob:

Just noticed that Jandek has a new studio album out... Amazing B-movie sounding title: 'Maze of the Phantom". Anyone heard it yet?
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:50pm mb2:

any video stream?
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:52pm Matt from Springfield:

Oooh, Jandek videos! Music videos or audio with still image?
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:54pm Mary Wing:

Is this the Rep singing? If so, his voice sure has aged!
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:56pm Rob:

@Mary I reckon this is that Che Elias feller...
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:56pm dc:

great stuff, jandek
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:57pm Mary Wing:

On second listen, I think you're right, Rob. He's channeling the Rep, though, heh.
Avatar Tue. 4/10/12 4:58pm BT:

Yep, it's Che.
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:58pm Matt from Springfield:

This is the style I think of when I think of "Jandek".
  Tue. 4/10/12 4:59pm mb2:

  Tue. 4/10/12 5:08pm Matt from Springfield:

We'll miss ya, Brian! But make sure to have a good time in Europe (and don't forget to fit in some leisure time as well!)
  Tue. 4/10/12 5:10pm Ken From Hyde Park:

We had an old zither like that when we kids were growing up. Like, forty years ago. I must ask my mom if it's still around.
  Tue. 4/10/12 5:21pm Matt from Springfield:

Sounds like a John Fogerty vocal.
  Tue. 4/10/12 5:22pm ricardo montalban:

Quite enjoying this post-Jandek squall of Jazz Noise.
  Tue. 4/10/12 5:23pm Mr Donut:

Hm, who's on second sax?
  Tue. 4/10/12 5:35pm hopey:

Oh yes, another version!
  Tue. 4/10/12 5:38pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks BT for the Cynthia Dall tribute. Julie did one early this morning as well.

great show-nice to here the "warm jets covers too
  Tue. 4/10/12 5:46pm Matt from Springfield:

"Here Come The Warm Jets" was orig Eno! Familiar riff, but so nice to hear!
  Tue. 4/10/12 5:57pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks BT for the 47 minutes of Jandek, and the 133 minutes of everything else!

Have a great time in Europe! See you later!
