Restocked. "Two new tracks from Drunk Elk, a trio from Hobart, Tasmania. A major highlight in the IDDB office throughout the last few years and arguably one of the best bands on earth right now with a under-the-radar discography filled with genuine gems. Askew, lonesome down-under brilliance, in spirit and partially in sound channeling everything from The Garbage & The Flowers to The Shadow Ring while ultimately lingering beautifully in a parallel universe. Slow-motion wine-infused avant-folk with the distinctive vocals of Dave Askew, both tracks recorded mid 2016 and following up the very much overlooked Constellations 2x7 released on Black Petal in 2015. The A-side In The Tuscan Sun is probably their finest moment yet, one of their most direct, heart-wrenching numbers and right now the best track IDDB ever spent euros on. The Wings Of Winter flipside is more traditional Elk, precarious and fucked late night desolation. The 7" comes with a 8-page booklet featuring a chapter from Daves story The Land Over The Ocean. 200 copies. Black vinyl, white cardboard sleeve with postcard attached, stamped white labels, booklet. Plays at 45rpm." - Il Dischi Del Barone.
After nearly a decade of false starts, multiple game plans veering off the rails, and a handful of shattered hopes and/or dreams, the odyssey is finally complete—the new Fusetron site is here.
This is the first phase of a multipart rollout that will span the next few months: the currently browsable stock includes miscellaneous new releases from the past 8+ months (we have a lot of catching up to do), plus approximately a third of our backstock. Note that we’ve reduced/slashed prices on many titles and will continue to do so in order to make room for new stock. We’ll also be expanding / tweaking / improving / debugging the site itself (for example, we still have work to do on the automated international postage system, not to mention the inevitable inventory discrepancies that come with transferring an ancient and massive database to a new system).
Over the next few months, as we take inventory, clean house, and delve into our storage, we will be uploading thousands of additional items, gradually, on a near-daily basis. This will include the majority of the LPs, as well as many titles, in all formats, once thought long-gone. Many currently “sold out” items are likely to resurface.
Finally, once our general backstock is up (probably in the next two or three months) we’ll begin making our extensive stockpile of rarities available online for the first time: tons of random out-of-print titles, "deadstock," warehouse finds, secondhand collectibles, etc., accumulated over the past few decades.
Frequent/returning customers will be getting early access to these items. Details to follow on how this will work (a priority mailing list? a 'frequent flyer'-like program?), but it will not be based on dollars spent. We want to reward those who consistently support us, especially in the discogs marketplace era (to those who show up trying to poach five copies of a one-off rarity, and nothing else, ever… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).
So—we suggest you take some time to dig through the site—even we’ve been surprised by what’s been turning up, and there’s much more to come.
