"DIY post-punk pioneers Richard Dudanski (Public Image Limited, Raincoats, 101ers etc), and Xentos, (aka Amos / Jim Whelton, Homosexuals / Amon And Sara etc), having been musical cohorts since 1979, have joined with vocalist/radio artist Sarah Washington and sax blower John Glyn for their latest project. Four years of recording in and around Granada and UK using locations ranging from abandoned soft drinks factories to gin-slugging auntie's living rooms have resulted in this Unhappy Fly collection: a syncopated soundscape of para-reductive pop based on Xentos' valorised rococo productions allied with Dudanski's daedalian drums. Featuring a sizeable crew of musical collaborators, and drawing on Washington's curlicued harmonies and John Glyn's multiple saxes, it is a music that invites slippery categorisation. Unhappy Fly's deracinated tune-smithing to creates a music that scoops up the noisy dogmas of the past and relocates them to the far side of the 5th dimension. For live outings they are joined by Owen Ross on guitar and Jerry Schmidt Jr on electric bass." - Emotional Response.
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.
