"How happy we are to present the debut cassette by this new, scrambled Massachusetts trio. The Impenitents line-up includes Salem's always wonderful Andrea Pensado, whose previous releases for the label are the Without Knowing Why LP (FTR 203LP) and Los Condenados' Yeppers! LP (FTR 126LP), both of which display different aspects of berserk invention mixed with pure charm. On Lip Therapy she is in charge of vocals and some electronics. This is Erik Browns's Feeding Tube debut, although he has shared releases with folks like Belltone Suicide, Noise Nomads, and Limbs Bin while recording as Wish for Skin, Scald Hymn or one of his other various operational noise-handles. His job here involves electronics and scrap metal. Andy Kivela makes his FTR debut here as well, although his work with outfits like Graph, 23 Ensemble, and McCoy Tyner Overdrive has made him in a buzz in our ears for a while now. He handles drums for The Impenitents. The four pieces on Lip Therapy are explosive slugs of roast pork. Andrea's brilliantly destroyed vocals create the orgone haze on top, Andy's drums cover the bottom with lumpy goodness, and Erik's blastoid sonic distress inflates the middle bladder like creamy custard larded with fish hooks. The Impenitents manage to create a collage whirlwind that functions more as free rock spurt than many other similar 'noise' projects. Like Wolf Eyes, their compositions maintain a structural integrity suggesting they are playing music that actually functions in future-rockist terms. The more you listen to this stuff, the more you can begin to understand and appreciate the craft of its construction. So, I suggest you get started right now. 'Cause the full immersion flash of perception might take a while. Good lip health to you!" --Byron Coley, 2021" - Feeding Tube Records.
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.
