DRUNKS WITH GUNS - S/T

Drunks With Guns were a nihilistic, noise rock / dumb punk band from St. Louis in the mid-80s. Their self-titled LP from 1987 included 9 songs worth of Brainbombs-meets-Flipper style punk with titles like Dick in One Hand..., Punched in the Head, and Wonderful Subdivision. This band is legendary and theres loads of rumor and heresy surrounding the legend. The band formed in 1984, released about a half-dozen singles and a couple LPs, played four shows and called it quits (well, in the same way Chrome called it quits anyway. The original singles and the LPs (and even the Complete Drunks With Guns tape) are virtually impossible to find these days. Among others, Monty Buckles of the Lamps is a big fan of the DWG and he wrote an excellent article in the last issue of Z-Gun that we definitely recommend reading at some point. Anyhow, weve reissued the Drunks With Guns self-titled LP in an edition of 100 tapes and theyre ready for consumption. This tape aint no bootleg neither. We actually took the time to get in touch with Mike Doskocil, the singer from Drunks With Guns and got permission for the release. We were hoping to do an LP reissue, but apparently the master tapes are in unusable condition. Dont fret, these tapes were professionally dubbed and the fidelity is about as good as your gonna get out of a cassette tape (read: they sound like they should, especially for a Drunks With Guns release). Dont have a cassette deck? What better excuse to get one than a Drunks With Guns tape! Tape decks are littering thrift stores everywhere. Save them from the landfills and enjoy some of the sweet jams that have been issued on the cassette tape format lately, there have been some great ones! Fans of Brainbombs, Flipper, and all things noise rock will definitely want to snatch one of these up before their gone. - Permanent

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.
