Options Brian Turner: Playlist from March 21, 2017 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.

Finally something I can sing along to!
Avatar 3:04pm Cecile:

hey, is there a guide somewhere to all the celebrities on the home page? I can guess all but two.
  3:05pm tomasz.:

is that a "Final Day" sample?!
  3:05pm Mary WIng:

It's listed on the playlist archive, Cecile:

Avatar 3:06pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

STILL thinking Bureau B can do no wrong. That was hip.
  3:06pm tomasz.:

Cecile: Mary listed them in the comments of the Hoof & Mouth playlist... OR i know them all. which two?
Avatar 3:06pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

now then: Who has Marathon Victory Carrot-Cake?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06pm Guido from Cologne:

Hello evrybody!
would you believe the Roland Etzin's track translates to "water"?
Lyrics are about cooking an egg.
the egg is bursting, which is spooky.
Avatar 3:07pm Cecile:

thanks, Mary! One was who I thought it was, the other two escaped me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:08pm Bronwyn Bishop:

hey brian and everybody :)
  3:08pm tomasz.:

guten tag Guido
Avatar 3:09pm Lopez:

Wow this is so close to a firehose vibe
Avatar 3:09pm Cecile:

Guten tag!
I am now 3% fluent in German now, according to Duolingo. Which means I can say yes, no and "they are not cats"
  3:09pm tomasz.:

honestly i only would have known half of them if it weren't for other people guessing them around me. especially the bottom row
  3:10pm tomasz.:

oh my god please ignore the mangled grammar of that sentence
Avatar 3:10pm Cecile:

The Alan Vega completely eluded me because he was so fresh-faced!
Avatar 3:10pm Cecile:

Tomasz, looks fine to me. I couldn't write anything that coherent in German.
Avatar 3:12pm Cecile:

Sie sind keine Katzen!
  3:12pm Mary Wing:

I had to google "Bienhoa," heh. Alan was the first picture.
Avatar 3:12pm Cecile:

he looked kind of like Ralph Macchio or someone from Menudo.
Avatar 3:14pm Cecile:

Ok, you lovely German speakers. How do you remember what "the" goes with what word? Is it completely random?
Avatar 3:14pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Funny, Cecile: I just downloaded Duolingo & was going to start on the German. ...After all these years, it's about time I figured out what Grobschnitt were laughing about between songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Fuzzy:

Yes, Cecile -- I thought it was the Karate Kid at first too. I also didn't get Debbie Reynolds, Alan Wakeman or Phife Dog. Just noticed Mr. Berry in the pyramid -- nice. Where's Mary Tyler Moore?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Asheville Jon:

always nice to hear Wild Man on FMU
Avatar 3:16pm Lopez:

Wild Man is great!
Avatar 3:17pm Cecile:

Rev, you will laugh at me, but I want to translate Conchita Wurst's between-song patter. I know my fellow nuts, I mean admirers do some translating, but I'd just like to get some of the nuances.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:17pm Guido from Cologne:

was Wild Man exploited by Zappa?
Avatar 3:18pm Cecile:

It's usually Russian people translating German into Engligh, and it lacks a little...something.

I dunno. I think Zappa treated him OK, but Fischer was kind of beyond the pale. He probably should have never had any public career, which pains me because I love his music.
Avatar 3:20pm Cecile:

Rev, we can be our own little bad-German practice group on Duolingo. I can talk to you about it offline.
Avatar 3:20pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

I get the feeling Zappa left behind a high body-count of exploitation subjects.
Avatar 3:21pm Cecile:

I think it was more "hey, this music should get out regardless, cause it's great." And he didn't consider the human cost that much.
Avatar 3:22pm Cecile:

I'm not the hugest fan of the guy's music, but I have to thank him for getting Beefheart out there.
Avatar 3:23pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Finally got around to hearing Edgard Varèse last year, & ears couldn't get FZ's sonic ghosts out of it. Impossible to filter out the Zappa. But yes, the Beefheart thing = infinite yay.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm Ike:

Best Marley cover ever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:23pm Guido from Cologne:

I love to feed phonetical gibberish to the Google translator and having it read in German, English, french, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, etc. accent.
Avatar 3:23pm Cecile:

They should cover every marley song ever.
Avatar 3:24pm Cecile:

ooh, great idea Guido!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm Oscar:

Delurking because I always forget how great that first Wild Man record is. It's interesting to contrast his relationships with Zappa and Barnes & Barnes-- IIRC, Bill Mumy was his legal guardian for the final few years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24pm Michael 98145:

i think i've been in bars like this
Avatar 3:25pm Cecile:

Sie sind keine Vogel.(imagine the umlaut there)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm steve:

brilliant cover
Avatar 3:25pm Cecile:

Bill Mumy is just a hell of a guy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:31pm Bronwyn Bishop:

i saw bill mumy play at a beach boys tribute show in la. he was great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:35pm Guido from Cologne:

If you don't have access to umlauts, add an 'e' after the vocal.
"Sie sind keine Voegel." ... would be correct spelling.
Avatar 3:37pm Cecile:

Awesome, Guido!!!!
Avatar 3:41pm Cecile:

what do you do when you don't have that special squiggly "s"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm tomasz.:

ooh ooh i know thiss one
Avatar 3:43pm Cecile:

ha! double "s"!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm Guido from Cologne:

right Cecile!
Avatar 3:47pm Cecile:

this is good stuff to know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Linda Lee:

loving today's show!! many thanks for fantastic sounds Mr. Turner!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Threemoons:

This is gorgeous. Dropping in briefly before I run out the door. Took the day off because it's my Bday! I feel blessed that I was able to give 4x this past telethon to keep you all going! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm Threemoons:

And yes what @Guido said RE umlauts

Happy Birthday Threemoons! enjoy!
Avatar 4:13pm Lopez:

Alright everything on this set is spectacular. Where's that little star for Gaseneta?
  4:15pm Märy Wing:

I guess the playlist doesn't recognize a lone question mark as a title; perhaps Brian can rename it as "untitled" or "mystery track" so the star will appear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm Threemoons:

Linda, thanks! About to head out to a late dinch. LOVE that Totensonnen! I gotta say, I have bought about $100 worth of indie music last week just from stuff I discovered during the telethon! Oh, and BOWIE. YEAH.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm Ike:

@Mary Wing, is tomorrow your first day in your new (old) timeslot at 12 noon on Give the Drummer Radio?
Avatar 4:18pm Cecile:

this is the best!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm Guido from Cologne:

is this true?

  4:20pm Märy Wing:

Yes, it is, Ike! Hope you'll stop by the playlist tomorrow!

Thank you Märy!

I forgot to turn to the Drummer stream this morning and realized it at about 11AM. I apparently didn't' miss 100% Whatever, so yay!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43pm Carmichael:

Hey Cecile, I speak pretty good German. The articles (der, die and das) have no apparent rhyme or reason, at least to me. Die is always used with the plural.
Avatar 4:45pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Hooray M.Wing on a stream I can dig live, real-time!
Avatar 4:52pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

Avatar 4:53pm Cecile:

I know, it's not like Spanish. That's pretty easy to figure out. Very few exceptions to the rule, and they either make sonic or linguistic sense. Just about every word that has "ma" at the end is masculine because I guess they're derived from Greek. So I would remember "your ma's a man" to remember to use the masculine article.

I'm just happy I can passably read German. There's no way I'd ever try to write or have an conversation in German. Vocabulary is easy, grammar is hard....

Power and thrash metal being invented in one song at the same time.

I'll try to speak it, but I'll sound like a German cavewoman. Lots of single words. and pointing.

i wish I knew what he was saying. it might not be so scary as it sounds. maybe its his recipe for weiner schnitzel
Avatar 5:17pm Cecile:

He has said that he is the Nick Nack man a few times. He also said "faster" and "animal". He did not say he was not a bird.

is this new Finno-metal?

Oh, Ajattara have been around for a while.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm dgg:

"He did not say he was not a bird." I like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Who said that? Werner Herzog?
Avatar 5:31pm Cecile:

No, that is me. I am learning German. And all I can really say is yes, no, and "I am not a(n)(insert various animal name)" That's what 3% Duolingo fluency in German gets you.
