Options Brian Turner: Playlist from November 19, 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.

...one (well - some!...) may think of Genesis as this intense & forbidding character - but sounds here so notably thotful & unaggressive (in the British manner).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/19/13 4:26pm tim from champaign:

I think of Genesis as a countercultural chameleon. As his creative interests evolve/change he absorbs and displays.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/19/13 4:32pm Hugh:

Needn't be said but this is the outsider version of Floyd's On the Run.

My above comment wasn't a dis; just an appreciation of Genesis' ability to adapt over the years.

I hear ya TfC and RRN63-agree w/ da both of yous

- didn't seem a dis @ all to me - in fact better-informed than the impression I expressed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/19/13 4:44pm DCE:

September seems like a million years ago already
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/19/13 4:45pm tim from champaign:

I definitely dig your point too, RRN. I think the difference between Genesis and some artists that are identified as transgressive, "dangerous" and intense is that Genesis is a thoughtful person. He can push and pull back. Whereas, GG Allin, Whitehouse, Boyd Rice, etc is push, push, push without any thoughtfulness beyond the ego..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/19/13 4:50pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- & after all, the Impression is part of the palette Genesis uses, I should think - like many greats & media personalities (have called Warhol an 'Identity Artisit' for example)
...G.G. Allin denied being a Performance Artist - just wanted to identify as an uncompromised Rocker...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/19/13 4:52pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- so it's not just a question of 'Technique' - but 'To What End'...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/19/13 5:10pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- Very Kewl! Great drummer!...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 11/19/13 5:11pm Matt from Springfield:

"Death of Samantha"--sweet! AIU in general is a great, often overlooked album. I remember that (amazing) "lengthy 2010 chat"--afterwards Brian serenaded the NYC airwaves by playing an entire album side of "Fly", with Yoko buzzing as a fly! :)

Hopefully BT will play "Listen, The Snow Is Falling", it's almost December. It's the closest thing WFMU has to an old sentimental Christmas classic!

What's awesome about Yoko is that she's ageless in her approach. Just like I never think about the age of an visual artist or author. Whereas, I think "how old are these guys" when I heard the new ZZ Top album for instance.

Thanks, BT!

that 2010 talk is really, really nice...she really is something amazing. for anyone here who doesn't know Fluxus work in general, I highly suggest looking it up and checking it out...once I learned so much about the movement, you see why ALL those folks are/were ageless...

I meant to go see Batagov doing Feldman Triadic Memories a few weeks back but the tix prices were really quite high. I wasn't too thrilled about that. at Park Ave. Armory. But I'm sure it was a great concert...next time though they should offer some affordable seats. Even Carnegie Hall is cheaper half the time.

This Torsten Nilsson thing is putting Stravinsky's "les noces" in my head. And that is a very good thing. Must run home & crank it later...
