Archaic Sounds, Natural Music & Joy
"This album is about a way to simply make raw, basic, natural and joyful music.This album is also about and with the Swedish saxophone visionary Bengt Nordström, -¢‚Ǩ¬ùFrippe-¢‚Ǩ¬ù who first of all talked to me about making and playing natural music.The legend of Bengt Nordström (1936-2000) tells how he picked up the clarinet and the saxophone after being deeply touched by the music of Tony Scott and Sonny Rollins.-¢‚Ǩ¬®Then meeting Ornette Coleman and Albert Ayler changed his musical vision; so much that he no longer fit into the contemporary jazz scene in Sweden. Frippe spoke of a totally spontaneous, improvised, creative music at a time when everyone else was trying to master-¢‚Ǩ¬®bebop. Because of this, he was left to play alone for many years. He became -¢‚Ǩ¬ùthe outsider-¢‚Ǩ¬ù; that nobody wanted, or had the nerve to play with. During intermissions at clubs, like the -¢‚Ǩ¬ùGolden-¢‚Ǩ¬®Circle-¢‚Ǩ¬ù, he took the opportunity to play small solo concerts and recorded himself.He released small editions of his work on his own -¢‚Ǩ¬ùBird Notes-¢‚Ǩ¬ù label. Although the recordings were mostly solo sax, on rare occasions, he was joined by Don Cherry on trumpet, bassist-¢‚Ǩ¬®Sven Hessle or bassist Björn Alke who would show up to play duets with him. His collection had two releases: Albert Aylers; -¢‚Ǩ¬ùSomething Different!!!!!!-¢‚Ǩ¬ù (BNLP 1) and Bengt Nordströms-¢‚Ǩ¬®own; -¢‚Ǩ¬ùNatural Music-¢‚Ǩ¬ù (BNLP 2). The other recordings were not numbered or catalouged but were released as LPs and EPs.It was not until the mid 70s that Bengt Frippe Nordström formed his own band, the -¢‚Ǩ¬ùMiljöv-ɬ•rdsverket-¢‚Ǩ¬ù. After some years of trying different constellations, the musicians, bassist Björn Alke (1938-2000), violin player Lars Svanteson (b. 1949) and myself, drummer Peeter Uuskyla (b. 1951), became established as a -¢‚Ǩ¬ùworking unit-¢‚Ǩ¬ù and cut the albums -¢‚Ǩ¬ùNows The Frippe Time-¢‚Ǩ¬ù (Dragon Records DRLP 82), -¢‚Ǩ¬ùThe Environmental Control Office-¢‚Ǩ¬ù (Ayler Records aylCD-021/022), -¢‚Ǩ¬ùFrippes Protocol-¢‚Ǩ¬ù (aylDL-086) and -¢‚Ǩ¬ùCreative-¢‚Ǩ¬®Addition-¢‚Ǩ¬ù (aylDL-116).This album is also about me talking to my children Nema (b. 1993) and Simon Cecil (b. 1990) to continue making natural music with your own voice, body and whatever music instruments you use. This album is recreated, created and recorded 2015, 7-¢‚Ǩ¬- vinyl side A recorded 1967 and side B recorded 1987. Hope you like it!" - Peeter Uuskyla.

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.
