Options Brian Turner: Playlist from April 4, 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.

Uniform  Live in the WFMU Studios   Options Engineered by Mario Santana    Uniform is the NYC duo of Michael Berdan and Ben Greenberg, whose latest release "Wake In Fright" raises their game as dealers of riff-mongering, relentless jackhammer destruction. Equal parts Big Black, Slayer, Young Gods, Killing Joke and more, the band appeared at Brian's Monty Hall showcase gig a couple years back with Obnox and The Wilful Boys, where witnesses watched them lay waste to the room with simple aggro vox, guitar, and programming. This new release on Sacred Bones is by far one of the most punishing records to come out of NYC in a while and we are excited to unleash them onto the airwaves today.

Hey Brian. Good seeing you this weekend - that Silk Purse set was very gone. Almost as gone as my date that night. Bring on the Uniform damage!

  3:23pm Ike:

I'm so full of baklava
If I ate any more baklava
I'd have to vomit first
I could eat a sack of baklava a day
Sometimes two or three sacks
In a single day
I can't be any clearer than that
I could eat every baklava in New York City
I can't even go into bakeries anymore
Because I'll eat all the baklava
(w/apologies to Todd Colby)

We are still trying to figure out a Plan B for Safe As Milk. So pissed.
Avatar 4:18pm Brian Turner:

Yeah. Bummer indeed. Some good stuff at Cafe Oto that week it seems if in London, Horse Lords, some others.
Avatar 4:23pm Nick S.:

Can't find any info on Phew's tour. Ideas, Mr. Turner? Sad about Safe As Milk but it reinforces an idea I have had for some time now about festivals and, especially festivals with dream line up, which I have seen a couple. If it's MY dream line up it's not going to make much money.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23pm Polyus:

We have a couple of nights booked in London after the festival that we can't get $ back on, so will be there for a bit. Oxbow and Sumac are playing on the 25th, which I definitely plan on making.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm Polyus:

There was an OOIOO show in London scheduled for the 20th, but apparently it got moved. And I think Shirley Collins is playing somewhere on the 29th, but we realized it was going to cost too much to move our flights. She is actually the person I am most distraught about missing.
