Options Brian Turner: Playlist from April 19, 2016 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.

Woah. Thought I heard someone talking about the Flea performance as if it's some kind of incorrect trainwreck? Ha ha, no way, Flea is clearly in on the joke here, trolling 'em hard. Love it.

@KRYPT, okay

Flea should've played Chet Baker in "Born to be Blue"!

"Burned in eternity", I can dig that.

Someone should get Sunn O))) to play the national anthem one day. It would probably last about 27 minutes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm sphere:

Keiji Haino would also do a good job on our national anthem.
Avatar 3:38pm Cliff:

I guess I should mention Cliff Burton's version....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm steveo:

I found the Flea anthem to be very reminiscent of Jimi Hendrix's version at Woodstock. Right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm Ken From Hyde Park:

La Marseillaise (the anthem of France) isn't getting much help these days, either. youtu.be...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Scraps:

Omigod I remember this
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm fred:

@Ken: An anthem with such horrible words deserves even less. In the words of John Oliver "how is still a thing?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm sphere:

"out" French horn! yes!!!
Avatar 3:45pm Lopez:

the Ossining label!?!? YES
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm fred:

Doh! "how is this still a thing?"
Avatar 3:48pm Cliff:

Now Youtube thinks I want to listen to Primus because I watched that Flea video, heh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm coelacanth:

haha! that la marseillaise is about equally flat from beginning to end. maybe if the whole thing was sped up a tiny bit it would sound almost not abominable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm fred:

@Brian: A friend just finished a documentary about Magma's tour in China. I told her the station sometimes has screenings at Monty Hall and that she should contact you, I hope that's OK
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm Andrew Waterloo:

oh yah, there's another Metz.
Avatar 3:52pm Brian Turner:

Sure thing bt@wfmu.org - I saw the trailer of that.
Avatar 3:53pm geezerette:

Flea National Anthem on trumpet.
Thanks K from HP for guitar version. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm Andrew Waterloo:

Magma is certainly worthy of a documentary.

Mr Epp! Takes me back in the pre-Nirvana Seattle days. (Where I lived and now live again.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm Andrew Waterloo:

There's a fairly strange and random association between sports and national anthems.
Avatar 3:58pm geezerette:

Symbolic war.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:01pm JP from KC:

geezerette pretty much hit it on the nose.
Avatar 4:01pm geezerette:

Black Flag so great.
Avatar 4:02pm geezerette:

JP: Beats Mayan Jai Lai.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:02pm JP from KC:

The whole sports=war thing always makes me think of that old George Carlin routine about baseball vs. other sports.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm JP from KC:

I'm pretty sure Jai Lai technically falls under the purview of actual war. People died, man.
Avatar 4:04pm geezerette:

Have to check out that Carlin piece!
Avatar 4:06pm geezerette:

Yeah,human head for a soccer ball. Spectator Sport nevertheless. Stadiums & all.

@geezerette: A classic: youtu.be...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm coelacanth:

wasn't there a sacrificial aspect to the mayan football? (i always thought so...)
Avatar 4:10pm geezerette:

JP & Fred; Thanks guys!
Avatar 4:12pm geezerette:

coel,yeah,same game. Maybe that was futbol,think you're right about that!
Avatar 4:13pm Cecile:

You asked Flea to play the National Anthem, OK? You're going to get a bass solo for the National Anthem. It's a damn sight better than a lot of things.
Avatar 4:13pm Cecile:

People, man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm fred:

@coelacanth: with the recent news about CTE, one could thing there's a sacrificial aspect to today's football too

right, fred..."i'm gonna play with a bunch of 200+ lb dudes where a primary aspect of the game is slamming into each-other, falling hard, and having possibly over a thousand lb of human on top of my repeatedly. that wont hurt me, right?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm fred:

@coelacanth: And news of the brain damage didn't hurt the league one bit. It's printing ever more money. I'm still following it, so I can't throw a stone on the non stone throwers
Avatar 4:33pm just dc pat or dcp-your choice:

@coal: yes, the losers in Mayan ball game were executed. I'm not sure if that was all the time or just big games but def happened.

..or the people. The Aztecs had wars when food was scarce. Prisoners were consumed by the people.

I'm really happy I got to see The Space Lady a year ago. She was so nice too, to everyone
Avatar 4:38pm northguineahills:

Lucky you, Fred!
Avatar 4:38pm just dc pat or dcp-your choice:

GOD, I wish I was the male equivalent of the Space Lady.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm coelacanth:

well, it is pretty barbaric to kill people and then not eat them! very wasteful.
Avatar 4:40pm just dc pat or dcp-your choice:

good point.

This Barraberra piece is amazing.

@dc pat: maybe start by putting a blinking light on the handle of that knife of yours

I think I need to start by learning how to sing in a pleasing yet not flamboyant way.

Avatar 4:44pm Cliff:

Just got back from voting, and now you're all talking about human sacrifice. GREAT!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm JP from KC:

I'm intrigued by the "Rough Guide" series. I think I saw one that was the "Rough Guide to Bollywood" in my local record store the other day, but alas, I did not get it.
Avatar 4:46pm dc pat:

Get Rough Guide to Bollywood. It's great. OK, really bye now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm JP from KC:

I'll have to swing by and see if it's still there. Take care, DCP!
  4:51pm melinda:

Yes, RoughGuide Bollywood is really good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm fred:

@JP from KC: I think the Rough Guide series can be a good starting point, but usually most of what's on these is not that good. But it's a starting point, there are better sources, but different ones for each region/style
Avatar 4:54pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I raise your bid hello & says Hulllo.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54pm JP from KC:

I THINK it was Rough Guide. It may have been "Beginner's Guide" or "A Brief Introduction to" Bollywood. Either way, could be worth checking out.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:03pm common:

nice cover
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:03pm fred:

@JP from KC: I think you should get it, or even better ask your record store people about it first. They'll probably guide you better than that rough guide.
  5:05pm gumb:

How about the bamboo steamah?!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06pm fred:

Reason 319 why I miss Bimbo Tower: no record store nearby is going to have this
  5:07pm Bz:

Woah, thought I was tripping thinking this was MBV. So good this cover.
Avatar 5:07pm Cliff:

"The two sets are intended to be played at the same time at varying volumes so that the listener can experience their own `gensho/phenomenon' every time." - from the liner notes at borismerzbow.bandcamp.com
Avatar 5:09pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yeah wow. Many influenced by MBV & making something of their attempt @ doing it - but who can credibly cover them like that?

That was a seriously good cover.

probably because my skull is not working well today... but i'm enjoying the music!
