Sneaky second collaboration cassette release from Nagual and Stefan Christensen. Nagual (David Shapiro and Ian McColm) have existed in the noise underground for some years now - with releases on Ergot, Cabin Floor Esoterica, and Pidgin, amongst others. In Fall 2016 the duo were recording new music in New Haven and invited Christensen to join the session. What came out was a blast of long form feedback and drone, which was released on cassette on Massachusetts label Gilded Throne in early 2017; with a weekend of shows and another recording session to go along with it. From the session side A was born and from the trios show in Belchertown, MA side B was born (recorded by Mike Barrett). Not for the weak willed, II, digs deep into extended improvisation and brings to mind Christensens previous work in Secret Treaties, Twisted Villages twisted trio Heathen Shame, or perhaps even touches of influence from Borbetomagus. All performers play guitar, though not always how you might expect.This cassette was produced for another weekend long tour but is now available to the masses. Limited to 75 copies. - C/Site.
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.
