SHEAVES, THE - Excessive Death Cult Time

"The Sheaves are a five-piece from Phoenix, AZ who churn out a murky yet driving, melodic style of post-punk you don’t hear that often because, well, most bands can’t pull it off. Not exactly easy to write songs that make one think of The Fall, the Swell Maps, the Axemen, but also Chrome, the Frogs and even early Pavement, without just sounding like a tribute act. The five young men who make up the Sheaves have tapped into whatever those aforementioned bands had up their sleeves and effortlessly write catchy songs that defy post-punk expectations. You don’t know how much they groove until hours later when you’re humming “Lariat Slung” while mowing the lawn or nodding out on the subway on your way to work. Previously issued as a limited cassette by Arizona’s Moone Records, Minimum Table Stacks is proud to present a completely remastered (by Josh Stevenson at Otic Sound) and slightly reconfigured vinyl LP reissue of this, the Sheaves first proper full length. The cassette received acclaim everywhere from the pages of Maximum Rockandroll, Foxy Digitalis and Raven Sings the Blues, and multiple spins on WFMU, Dynamite Hemorrhage Radio and beyond. If those cretins at Terminal Boredom were still crawling they’d be declaring this one their modern day Spider 7″ or Human Eye LP. I would even consider stealing all of their money via a fraudulent pre-order. Limited to 300 copies, the LP comes with a two-sided insert with artwork by Sheaves lead vocalist/guitarist Eric Mudd." - Minimum Table Stacks.

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.
