Options Brian Turner: Playlist from August 13, 2013 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.

despite no one chiming in on the NEUROTICS, here's a funny about them. i knew that BILLY BRAGG was friends w/the band so after a b.b show several yrs ago, i asked billy about steve: "is he still the city gardener at harlow, essex?" and billy goes "yes, he likes to say that he works for the BUSH administration".

jljl...I went to Count's short bio site. How unreadable can it get? And I clicked before hinted to. Now I'll always remember.

Happy beersday RTD! My favorite Belgian beersie these days is Tripel Karmeliet, with Wesmalle Tripel second. I'm not much into the more sugary stuff, but if you want dessert, check out Kasteel Rouge (cherry, but in a good way). A word of warning though: we call the latter "casse-tête rouge" (red headbasher). This is a highly traitorous beverage
Avatar 4:34pm Chris from DC:

You know, never been to MOMA. Thanks for the tip, RTD. Happy beersies.

RE: the belgian stuff: ScottW turned me onto the Dupont Saison (bless the man for that); It's definitely not of the sweet variety. Just sour enough to smell like your hands after changing a bicycle tire. Good stuff.
