Avatar 11:45am Tony Coulter:

Hello, all. I don't see how anyone could possibly recognize today's LP-under-the-cassettes, as it's just a small detail and the cover is turned sideways. But just in case any of you is freakishly gifted at recognizing album covers, I won't give away the secret yet. Any guesses?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:00pm listener james from westwood:

Good Tuesday, Tony and all!!
Avatar 12:01pm Tony Coulter:

Hey there, James!
Avatar 12:07pm Tony Coulter:

Oh, the tape on now is the one in the middle, with the mutant sex doll.
Avatar 12:08pm Tony Coulter:

It comes with a big booklet, which, sadly, I'm missing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:13pm steveo:

i'm not very attracted to that sex doll, tony, i'll be honest. also, hi.
Avatar 12:15pm Tony Coulter:

Don't be narrow-minded, Steveo. Radioactive mutants can be sexy too. (Hiya!)
Avatar 12:18pm Tony Coulter:

No guesses re the LP cover? I'll wait 10 more minutes before making the big reveal. Don't miss out on valuable cash and prizes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:19pm steveo:

google image search says it's "scrapbooking" lol
  12:21pm Dean:

Trying to guess. Twenty questions? Or four (but not Y/N)?

1. Detail from front or back?
2. New wave?
3. British or US?
4. Gatefold?
Avatar 12:22pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Dean! Front cover; U.K. Here's a hint: it's related to something Nice.
  12:23pm Dean:

Brian Davison's Every Which Way
Avatar 12:25pm Tony Coulter:

You got it!! Pack your bags, Dean -- you're going on an all-expenses-paid trip to Flumdiddle.

Here's the cover: www.discogs.com...
  12:25pm Dean:

Flumdiddle is gorgeous this time of year!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm steveo:

Impressed, Dean.
  12:35pm Dean:

Man, Roy Baker got around! Engineer on the Davison record.
  12:37pm Dean:

I prefer the old Charisma label pressing: https://www.discogs.com/Brian-Davison-Brian-Davisons-Every-Which-Way/release/1942988

Was listening last night to a recent CD collection of Brand X's Charisma records. It, too, features the old label, even though Brand X LPs appeared with the later one.
Avatar 12:45pm Tony Coulter:

I favor the Mad Hatter label myself.
  12:47pm Dean:

Agreed. I meant I prefer the old Charisma label to the Mercury. Once upon a time, I'd eagerly acquire any Charisma record, particularly those with the Mad Hatter, sight unheard.
Avatar 12:47pm Monica:

love this psyclones rap track, tony!
Avatar 12:48pm Tony Coulter:

Monica! Nice to see you here! Did you notice that he name-checked Aerosmith?
Avatar 12:51pm Monica:

perhaps the run dmc/aerosmith "walk this way" (1986) influence.
Avatar 12:52pm Tony Coulter:

That's what I figured....
Avatar 12:54pm Tony Coulter:

The Pseudo Code track on now is also on this comp of theirs: www.discogs.com...
Avatar 12:54pm Tony Coulter:

And I've played it before, from that comp.
Avatar 1:07pm Sem:

..sssssssssssssssss Hello, Tony, tapeHiss folk, and just-happened by people w/ ears for thisssssssssssssssss....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08pm Webhamster Henry:

This sounds like the good old Mirage Chorale!
Avatar 1:09pm Tony Coulter:

Sem! Webhamster! Hello to you both!
  1:11pm Psychspaniolos:

Hello Tony and friends
Avatar 1:11pm Tony Coulter:

Autopsia (on now) were from Yugoslavia. Surely, they get bonus points for that.
Avatar 1:11pm Tony Coulter:

Greetings, Psychspaniolos!

(referencing Herr Ak Ak)
  1:23pm Psychspaniolos:

nice start
Avatar 1:26pm Tony Coulter:

Sometime last year I picked up a huge pile of Ken Clinger tapes. I'll eventually play one or more of them here on Tape Hiss.
  1:28pm Psychspaniolos:

Is it the same person? kenclinger.bandcamp.com...
Avatar 1:28pm Tony Coulter:

Yep! Same guy. He's mega-prolific.
Avatar 1:30pm Tony Coulter:

Umm, the cassette tracklist *does* say "Sence"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm steveo:

more like 'seance', amirite?
  1:34pm Dean:

Essence, insence
Avatar 1:35pm Tony Coulter:

Outsence?
  1:35pm Dean:

Exsence
  1:37pm Dean:

Come to think of it, Exsence sounds like one of those vapid trademarks companies adopt these days. I swear, there is a Cartelligent and a Stratelligence. Who comes up with these words?
  1:39pm Dean:

Credit where due, Problemist took a lot from Eno/Byrne.
Avatar 1:43pm Tony Coulter:

My Life in the Tush of Jesus?
  1:48pm Dean:

Yeah, well, leave it to snoots like Eno and Byrne to appropriate the work of a Nigerian author. Album would have been that much better if they'd called it The Clan of the Cave Bear or A People's History of the United States.
Avatar 1:51pm Tony Coulter:

I was an Amos Tutuola fan a million years ago, back in high school. Haven't read him since, for no good reason. (Back then, I read a lot -- these days, I spend my time listening to crappy dollar-bin records.)
  1:55pm Dean:

I blame my lapse in reading on the easiest of targets: my kids! But then, I can now credit them for a slight increase in reading. My daughter was recently not well, so I spent a lot of time at home with her. Over two days I reread Brian Aldiss's Cryptozoic (albeit in its original UK incarnation as An Age). First read it in high school decades ago. Fun to revisit. It takes place in part in 2093. No mention of an internet! I suppose that's because Aldiss published it the year before ARPANET saw its first advance with the nascent technology.
Avatar 1:57pm Tony Coulter:

Oops! Sorry for the crackly crackle during that mic break -- happens sometimes when I brush against the cord.
Avatar 2:00pm northguineahills:

Work is pulverizing me, so this has been the perfect soundtrack.
Avatar 2:01pm Tony Coulter:

Music to Pulverize By. (Heya, NGH!)
Avatar 2:07pm Tony Coulter:

Bocal 5 later turned into X-Ray Pop
Avatar 2:08pm βrian:

@Dean: Vapid could be its own vapid trademark, maybe for a vaping device.
Avatar 2:09pm Tony Coulter:

Hola, βrian!
Avatar 2:09pm northguineahills:

*oink*!
Avatar 2:10pm βrian:

Hola, Mr Courtly Tone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm Ike:

Mrkgnao!
Avatar 2:11pm βrian:

@Ike: Hey, there. I brought some extraneous apostrophes' for you.
Avatar 2:12pm Tony Coulter:

Ike! Thanks for the extra apostrophes. I'll shape them into a stylish crown.
Avatar 2:14pm Tony Coulter:

If, Bwana = Al Margolis (who runs both the Sound of Pig and Pogus labels)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm Ike:

@βrian: Thanks, but I'm full. (BURRRRP)
Avatar 2:18pm Tony Coulter:

Oh, silly me -- the apostrophes are for Ike. I'll have to use exclamation points instead.
  2:19pm Dean:

Nope, @βrian. Has to be Vapidelligence.
Avatar 2:19pm Sem:

Knockin' it out of the park, TC. Hissalicious.
Avatar 2:20pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, Sem!
  2:22pm Dean:

Continuing with our conceit of the day, The Soffic Incorcists.
  2:25pm Mark Williams:

been in & out today, Tony, but I've been here. Dig this Sonic Excorcists track, but then you'd figure I would.
Avatar 2:27pm βrian:

Mister Heresy?
Avatar 2:28pm βrian:

(I may need to have the premise explained.)
Avatar 2:28pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Mark! Just in time for more Alain Neffe....
  2:29pm Mark Williams:

i have a second sense for that...
  2:34pm Mark Williams:

I go up and down with X-Ray Pop, but this is definitely an "up".
Avatar 2:35pm Tony Coulter:

Yeah, it's a great track....
  2:44pm Mark Williams:

this is a great comp so far. damn.
Avatar 2:45pm Tony Coulter:

If I can score a copy of the other tape in the set, I will definitely play the whole thing here on Tape Hiss.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:47pm listener james from westwood:

Weird burst of Star Wars there, but entirely in character for a Tape Hiss!
Avatar 2:50pm Tony Coulter:

This is kind of obvious, I guess, but this BCO track is clearly a tribute to Faust's "Why Don't You Eat Carrots?"
Avatar 2:52pm Tony Coulter:

It borders on being a cover.....
Avatar 2:53pm Tony Coulter:

... but isn't, really....
Avatar 2:53pm βrian:

A covert cover?
Avatar 2:53pm Tony Coulter:

An undercover cover.
Avatar 2:54pm Sem:

A coverall.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:55pm listener james from westwood:

Duck and undercover!
Avatar 2:55pm Tony Coulter:

Double Ha!
Avatar 2:55pm Tony Coulter:

Gong's Daevid Allen appears on this album, amazingly.
Avatar 2:56pm Sem:

A Cockamame cover, say I.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm Rich in Washington:

This almost sounds like Wobbly.
Avatar 2:57pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, Rich! Wobbly's on here as well!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm Rich in Washington:

Oh. It is Wobbly. I remember this. One of BCO gave me a CDR of it. It's really good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:58pm listener james from westwood:

Many thanks, Tony!
Avatar 2:59pm northguineahills:

Thanks Tony!
Avatar 2:59pm Sem:

Obrigado, Tony!
Avatar 3:00pm Tony Coulter:

@ Rich: We may have gotten our copies at the same time! I got it when BCO was on KBOO back around 2010 (I lurked that night, and of course you were there too).
Avatar 3:00pm βrian:

Oh, so class has almost ended? Durn. Thanks, Tony.
Avatar 3:00pm Tony Coulter:

See you, everyone!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:00pm Rich in Washington:

Yes, that's exactly it! You lurker, you!
