Hank The Herald Angel

SAPAT - L & N

What we have here is a brand new single from Louisville, Kentuckys long-running underground collective Sapat. “L&N” and “Payne Hollow Stomp” were recorded in 2005 at the same sessions that produced the groups 2007 Siltbreeze Records LP Mortise and Tenon, about which Dusted said: “While blowing all limp pretensions clean out of the water and across several state lines, this octet manages a multi-genre juxtaposition that never once sounds forced.” “L&N” is a slow-burning elegy on the Louisville & Nashville Railroad (1850-1982), a soundtrack for the contemplation of what we can and cant leave behind. “Payne Hollow Stomp” picks up speed and condenses the density of the A side, moving from the rails to an open road or better yet the rolling Ohio River on which sits Payne Hollow, the simple waterfront homestead of Harlan and Anna Hubbard (1900-1988; 1902-1986), two exemplary Ohio Valley post-Thoreau, pre-Back-to-the-Land simple-life seekers.The 7”, catalog number HANK010, is an edition of 300 45rpm records, packaged in clear polypropylene bags with double-side-printed kraft card insert. -Hank the Herald Angel.

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.
