Favoriting Brian Turner: Playlist from May 3, 2016 Favoriting

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.

Greenlight, I was just asked by 'em while they tapes were being dug up and put out. The cover was also shot in Centralia PA not too far from where I grew up and Made In USA flick they score took place so was cool to see that....
  Swag For Life Member 3:10pm

For me, these are great post-Levitation Austin jams! ;-)

as a heartburn sufferer, i feel a great kinship with Centralia

yeh the whole town smoldered thru the 80s, and then they moved everyone out. Dunno how safe it was sitting there for that cover pic haha. They were passing thru there between Pottsville PA gig and NYC with fIREHOSE in 86

You should interview the kid who fell into the sinkhole on his grandparents lawn. He's gotta be 50 now

This MacArthur song shouldn't work at all, but somehow it does.

Hello hello

I know of him but haven't gotten around to watching anything by him yet (I'm not much of a film buff anyway :)

Oh well then! No reason to watch! Film is a last century medium anyway.

A lot more interesting than most of this century's media though....

Film so quaint. Radio so old. Yet I still listen to WFMU via the air 60% of time; by computer 40%.

Well,I like lots of mediums & processes and my hierarchies change. I like visual lanuages and film is a great one,fun to go back to earliest & watch the vocabulary being built.

Electric guitar is mid-20th Century stuff. Tubes? Nothing else like it...Completely unnecessary now - in a way...
Avatar 4:57pm
Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I mean - everything's unnecessary now...just have digital simulations - & machines to experience them...

Computers haven't become sentient yet... (and maybe never will, though don't try to tell an AI researcher that!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:03pm

but digital simulation of tubes does not sound like tubes. it's an unreasonable facsimile.
(i guess folks who didn't grow up with a beautiful fisher amp might not know that though.)

Hey Brian, I looked up Kimamanahibi on discogs, if you give me the track # I can try to translate the title for you

Yikes! no offense. he is or was a Great lyricist; and the smiths' instrumentalists were impeccable...i just wish they had a good vocalist!

Nah, just messin' with you coelacanth...just found it funny to see someone rank Cookie Monster vocals over him, heh

While misspelling his name besides
Avatar 5:17pm
Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...well - he has a distinctive voice (he sounds like him) - which is half the battle in Pop/Rawk - & he's basically intelligible (I can tell the words - which helps in this case w/ the good writing, but isn't even a prime virtue in singing necessarily)...he communicates inflections (irony, what have you) - even as his style tends to a kind of spoken monotone, itself a certain effect...'cetera...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm

hey, i was pretty happy with myself for remembering the double double in his name!
Avatar 5:18pm
Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Oh - I thot you were talking about MES...

Hey there,that was unintentionally funny!
Kurt Schwitters though,now THERE was a vocalist!

Aware of strides in AI and Virtual Reality but haven't tried new devices yet. I'm more concerned about losing huge chunks of actual reality! Not a fan of algorithmic delivery systems either.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm

those dogs probably didn't receive a scent.

I've been experimenting with a couple VR systems for a while now, the technology is quite impressive but nobody seems to have a good idea what to do with it yet (myself included :)

Is this supposed to sound like untuned radio static, or is there a problem with the stream? Just wondering....
