Options Brian Turner: Playlist from February 20, 2018 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.

Hola. Oh hey, VDO.
Avatar 3:15pm MenfussMike:

that first Montrose album is absolutely essential. it STILL sounds good. Templeman did a nice job on the sonics.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm mrdonutsu:

Montrose At Montreux!
Avatar 3:17pm MenfussMike:

it must suck to be Sammy Hagar and to realize that your greatest contribution to music was on your first record 45 years ago.
  3:18pm Ted:

Mercy! Haven't heard this in ages. What a killer track.
  3:18pm Gooberz.jpg:

MONTROSE!!!! Oh yeah!!!

oops I was still on the last comment page. this montrose sounds GREAT
Avatar 3:20pm MenfussMike:

for 32:22 he kicked complete ass. then he did a better job making tequila than music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm mrdonutsu:

The 1959 Les Paul—later named "Stripe" (although Montrose himself never called it that)—was most famously used by Montrose on the Edgar Winter Group tracks "Frankenstein" and "Free Ride." During a concert at Nichols College in Dudley, Massachussetts, with Edgar Winter on October 10, 1972, the '59 Les Paul—which Montrose had recently purchased from guitarist J. Geils for $800—disappeared right off its guitar stand. The stolen 1959 Les Paul ended up in the possession of the late Irish blues guitarist Gary Moore, which prompted Montrose to sue Moore in 2010 for its return. The matter was never resolved during Montrose's or Moore's lifetimes, and the 1959 Stripe remains in the possession of the Moore family.

Oh, this begat 45 Grave!
  3:34pm Tee Ess:

45 Grave does a great “Concerned Citizen” on Hell Comes to Your House- this is great too! Is it the original?
  3:34pm Gooberz.jpg:

I like that: "Lil Sammy Hagar"

Good afternoon Brian and listeners
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, BT and friends. Hmmm, no Fergie national anthem remixes on the playlist yet. I'll check again later.
Avatar 3:44pm Brian Turner:

there wont be
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Rich in Washington:

such a peculiar album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm Rich in Washington:

I was disappointed after listening to the Fergie anthem that it wasn't as horrible as everyone hyped it up to be.
I mean, it sounds as bad as most contemporary pop music sounds to me.
I think it's just become a tradition to freak out over various and sundry interpretations of that song.
  3:51pm Andrea in Jersey City:

This song is amazing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Rich in Washington:

Tee Ess: A member of the Consumers (Paul Cutler) went on to 45 Grave.
  3:51pm Andrea in Jersey City:

Completely agree with this stuff, thanks!!!
  3:52pm Andrea in Jersey City:

Music these days is just a tool to sell stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54pm Planet Tyler:

Can always count on Brian to play the CTs
Avatar 3:55pm fred:

Are they still around? The Rebel tours over here once in a while, but I haven't seen Country Teasers in years
Avatar 3:58pm kirk from beer city usa:

has everybody seen the Subway commercial that uses the CT song? No Limit, I think
  3:58pm Ochre Ogre:

Hey Brian, great art listening to paint by.
I'm going to join Black Sabbath with Ronald McDonald after listening to your show.
  3:59pm Andrea in Jersey City:

Thank you for this kickass music

[ late to the party. sorrry if this already came up, but yoko ono turned 85 this weekend ... ]
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15pm Patty D:

Sometimes, when listening to WFMU, I wonder if I'm secretly being brainwashed. If I am, I'm OK with it, just keep playing kick ass music.
Avatar 4:22pm fred:

@Patty: Your brain is actually being washed. Now if you're a fan of Micah's show, or listen to Matt Warmick at 11, it's a different story

@Michael 98145: Celentano's other great faux-English jam is "Prisencolinensinainciusol", which I'm pretty sure I first heard on WFMU at some point.

But we're not Facebook friends because I don't know him that well.
  5:22pm IKing Ludd:

That Fergie rendition of the national anthem seemed so perfect for the US at the moment - like the singing equivalent of that thing where you fly the flag upside down to indicate an emergency.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm Michael 98145:

who even knew there was a need for such ..??

  5:27pm Berkman:

my like this piece. get weirder...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm Michael 98145:

certainly some great listening today -
  5:30pm Berkmam:

you got weirder... what do you look like with your freak on :)
  5:33pm Andrea in Jersey City:

Can you play more Country Teasers?
  5:38pm Andrea in Jersey City:

Is the matrix real in the sense that our social media personalities are now the matrix, and our physical bodies are just here for nutrition to keep us alive? Maybe hats why juice bars are so popular now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm Michael 98145:

whoa -

I bought this Staer recording via bandcamp immediately. Some of the best noise rock I’ve heard in forever
