Options Brian Turner: Playlist from December 4, 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.

Listener comments!

  3:08pm Dan B:

BOOM! Two bangers out of two.
  3:11pm EAL:

  3:17pm Rödwolf:

Bon! Killer.
  3:22pm Matt from Springfield:

Bill Murray! Soon-to-be FDR!

Hi BT! Hi everyone!
  3:22pm SteveL:

Divorce: Perfect for work. Turn it up and no one comes close to my office.
  3:23pm Dan B:

I didn't like this Divorce record on first listen but it's really grown on me a lot.
  3:26pm ChrisB.:

I don't think I've heard this song since 1968. Sorta Kinks, right?
  3:28pm Matt from Springfield:

The instrumentation sounds Kinksy, more so than the vocal.
  3:30pm amEdeo:

Keep forgetting about that Divorce record. Was initially suspicious of a song called "Bill Murray" but have (thankfully) since then seen the error in my brainways. And ohh, how erroneous they were. Very good record.
  3:31pm Chris from DC:

From the videos people have been posting, Crazy Horse must have been incredible.
  3:35pm Matt from Springfield:

Quite an expressionistic work! Kudos to the great 4AD label for issuing this!
(And no, Archive listeners, Scott Walker has not gone 80s/90s ethereal! ;)
  3:37pm Sigurdur:

hi there, two guys from Iceland listening in trippy stuff.
  3:39pm Ike:

I respectfully submit my opinion that this Scott Walker track is utterly excruciating. I'm curious to see how long I can continue listening before I lose what little of a mind I have.
  3:39pm Dan B:

Total sell-out Scott Walker, he's gone soft in his old age to please the Kokomo crowd
  3:39pm Josh:

Look forward to the Knitting Factory recording!
Also, this Scott Walker album is fucking spooky!
  3:41pm Matt from Springfield:

I'm not sure if Scott's ever done something this edgy before--if so I'd like to hear!
  3:43pm krius ornj:

you have listeners from Kosovo...
Avatar 3:44pm BT:

Heya Kosovo! Not Kokomo
  3:45pm carbonjoetunis:

i like Ike
  3:46pm Andrew Waterloo:

I think we'd be fine with either Mike or Ike
  3:46pm Josh:

This is a great follow up to The Drift.
  3:47pm Matt from Springfield:

Scott got by on pop music in the 60s because he was waiting for the world to be ready for *this*! Andy Warhol was even freaked by this at the time...

It is drawing the international fans! Welcome Iceland, and Kosovo!
  3:48pm Uncle Michael:

I'm dying. I'm momentarily constrained from having the sound on here at work.
  3:49pm common:

powerful record!
  3:49pm Andrew Waterloo:

After hearing Scott Walker, referring to anything else as strange feels like hyperbole.
  3:50pm Uncle Michael:

Matt, I like music from all of Scott's career...literally all of it. For me there was never a time whe he was limited to making music the world was ready for. My favorite Scott album...one of my favorite albums of all time is Scott 4.
  3:50pm Josh:

Toronto, Canada here too.
  3:51pm Dubinator:

Damn! Stepped out to Pret Mangler for some eats and I missed Tank! Grrrrrrr!
  3:51pm tim from champaign:

I'm glad Rick Rubin didn't get his hands on Scott Walker.
Avatar 3:52pm BT:

Me and Noiser will def rock some Tank next week methinks Doob.
  3:53pm Matt from Springfield:

Amen, tim!!
@UM: Thanks for the rec, not familiar with that '69 album but I'll be sure to look into it.
  3:53pm Andrew Waterloo:

that was a great transition
  3:53pm Uncle Michael:

"Is he still cute??" Lulu from the "30 Century Man" documentary, referring to Scott Walker.
  3:53pm Matt from Springfield:

I remember this one! The Yoko doppelsinger.
  3:54pm Carmichael:

Hiya BT. Just in time to miss Scott Walker, dangit. But I'm all ears for the rest of the afternoon.
  3:56pm Uncle Michael:

@Matt, It's worth listening, chronologically, to everything Scott recorded from the time he discovers Jacques Brel. But don't dismiss the Walker Brothers or even the teen stuff he recorded before the WBs.
  3:56pm northguineahills:

Every time I hear that Cutler song, I have to imagine it was penned before Thatcher.
  3:58pm northguineahills:

I actually liked that Scott Walker, I usually can't get into him. Must be his range of producers and musicians he uses now.... or something.
  4:00pm Josh:

The Walker Brothers Nite Flights album from '78 is worth listening to as well.
  4:01pm Matt from Springfield:

I like the Walker Bros stuff too. But even before then--that's a good chrono listen I should assemble. Twould be interesting indeed!
  4:03pm kata:

howdy people !! I like this sweet simple O Paon piece. I believe she's a Vancouver BC woman.. pacific NW sweetness...
  4:04pm Uncle Michael:

@Josh, the four(?) Scott tracks on Nite Flights point in the direction he has pursued since.
  4:05pm northguineahills:

I concur w/ kata....
  4:06pm andymorphic:

play more of the scott walker....i missed the track :(
  4:07pm Carmichael:

I too love Mr. Walker, as a brother and solo. My Ship is Coming In is one of the great wall of sound songs of the 60s. And Scott 4 is the best of the solo bunch, though I like them all.
  4:09pm Uncle Michael:

@Carmichael...kindred spirit. Though I might pick "After The Lights Go Out" as my favorite WB tune.
  4:12pm Matt from Springfield:

Proto-doom Obscuro-thrash! EXCELLENT!
*headbangs, air guitars*
  4:17pm paul:

i saw MWH opening for Devo last year in Toronto. the singer was definitely wearing a hat.
  4:18pm Beerbully:

  4:18pm BSI:

HOLY BOUNCING LIVERBUGS, I haven't heard this Men Without Hats tune since the album was new... My head a-splode.
  4:20pm Matt from Springfield:

Reminds me of Modern English, similar production.
@paul: What kind of hat!
  4:20pm Carmichael:

I saw Devo open for Blondie last month. They were ALL wearing hats (energy domes, specifically).
  4:20pm Dan B:

This is brilliant BT, new wave VDGG eh?
  4:21pm Josh:

If interested in SW definitely check out his documentary "30 Century Man"
  4:21pm Martha:

Away was the drummer on their Sideways lp. btw - early 1990s I believe -
  4:22pm Matt from Springfield:

@Carm: Energy domes work well! Devo's been around a lot lately.
@Josh: UM also mentioned that, sounds pretty good.
  4:22pm Chris from DC:

Wow, yeah, you can hear the resemblance to MWH there, kinda.
  4:23pm paul:

i think he was wearing a cowboy hat actually
  4:25pm Carmichael:

I saw 30 Century Man via Netflix online. It's available in other places, too (Blockbuster, etc ...).
  4:25pm BSI:

He was quite the decent chap at the VdGG show here in DC. Great show as well.
Avatar 4:25pm BT:

Me and my friend Andy actually lost our hats at the show but we found them next day
  4:26pm Mike East:

30 Century Man is totally worth checking out. It took me a while to get to, but I'm glad I did. That Peter Hammill track was awesome, btw
Avatar 4:27pm BT:

Director of 30th Century Man, Steven Kijak was actually here on the show some years ago, check the archive for some good Scott stories...
  4:28pm Matt from Springfield:

@paul: That's quite "flaunting" his violation of the band name! ;)
  4:28pm seang:

Beantown represent!
  4:29pm Josh:

@BT Will check the archives! Thanks!
  4:31pm krius ornj:

decibels for gratitude, for sure...
  4:32pm Donovan:

Whoa that song was good. Jeez.
  4:35pm Matt from Springfield:

Woooo Lydia Lunch!
  4:37pm Josh:

BT: Any chance this set will be available for download?
Avatar 4:38pm BT:

No download, sorry!
  4:39pm Josh:

This rules!
  4:40pm slugluv1313:

  4:44pm Uncle Michael:

  4:45pm jdelz:

Thanks for airing this. So awesome!
  4:46pm Dubinator:

This should be released.
  4:46pm Josh:

Thanks UM!
Avatar 4:47pm BT:

I believe there will be plans for an edited version
  4:47pm Matt from Springfield:

Love the live sets with an audience reaction and stage banter! Not that I don't like Live At WFMU sets as well, but you should air live venue sets more often!
  4:50pm Uncle Michael:

@Josh, YW
  4:51pm Cognac:

The drink of Lydia & David Thomas.
  4:52pm the glowing one:

  4:57pm Dubinator:

Weasel is killing it on guitar. Wicked.
  5:01pm Josh:

I regret not having gone to see them in Toronto. But this recording will do! Thanks!
  5:07pm Chris from DC:

This is amazing.
  5:12pm D.I.Y.:

  5:20pm Matt from Springfield:

Still intense!
  5:20pm Dubinator:

Thanks Josh!!!
  5:21pm Marmalade kitty:

I imagine editing is hard work with Lydia Lunch c:
  5:27pm Fred:

Lydia sounds like that little girl from irwin's show when she does that deep yell... what was her name....? Samantha...? no, that's not it....
  5:29pm Marmalade kitty:

I want cookie!!!!
  5:30pm Marmalade kitty:

  5:31pm Fugs:

Kill for peace!
  5:32pm Fred:

Yeah, Amanda, that's it...!! Does anyone else hear it or am I baked?
  5:33pm mick:

  5:34pm SteveL:

  5:34pm Killer:

You have got me under your wheels.
  5:37pm Matt from Springfield:

  6:55pm RK:
