This tape marks the return of S/M Operations, 30+ years after dissolution. Professionally duplicated tapes, double sided art. One time limited edition of 150 copies. Released in cooperation with Easy Listening and Silent Records." - Easy Listening. "For 35 years, UNEARTHED was a TDK AD-X 60 minute cassette tape buried in my archives.The cover was labeled "Korg solo stuff 82 – 83 in my handwriting. Side A of the tape itself read Skott Rushe Solo w/ L.C.Diehl producing Dobly no in Lons handwriting. This shows how early it was in our friendship - he didnt know how to spell my last name and to be honest, I dont think I knew how to spell Diehl. My memories of those days are hazy but Im certain this was recorded in Lons first apartment in Port Huron. The same place where the foundation of Sounds Like A Picture was recorded as well as Banishing Dirge. The same place where Lon called me late one night to say he had the new Despair video from SPK and I immediately rushed over with BK Whoppers and 40s. It was also the crash pad after countless pitchers of beer at Roche Bar honing our world domination plans. Im also 100 per cent certain that this session was an alcohol fueled midnight experiment, mixing cigarettes, booze and synthesizers into some kind of industrial strength muck. Feeding my Korg MS20 synthesizer into Lons harmonizer and Korg Stage Echo machines, Lon doing his best industrial Lee Scratch Perry to my best Maurizio Bianchi. So here it is, UNEARTHED, in all its glory, the closest you may ever get to a pure Hunting Lodge "noise" piece, vintage 1982. - Richard Skott 2017.
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.
