DORAU, ANDREAS - Ich bin der Eine von uns Beiden

"Tapete Records present a reissue of Andreas Dorau's Ich bin der Eine von uns Beiden, originally released in 2005 on Mute. Includes such classics as "Kein Liebeslied", "40 Frauen", and "Im September". "Ihr brüllt von Liebe in engen Gewändern / Doch einer wie ich will die Welt noch verändern", sings Andreas Dorau on "Kein Liebeslied", written with Sven Regener. Love was not his chosen subject, he wanted to sing of other things -- wild boar ("Schwarze Furchen"), processions ("40 Frauen"), and the back house where the people come out the front ("Hinterhaus"). It was ever so. The maestro spent eight long years working on his so-called "wild boar record", a disc which featured Wolfgang Müller, Justus Köhncke, Carsten "Erobique"Meyer, and Paul Kominek, along with Andreas and Dorau. The concept of the album revolved around the separation of these last two participants. An interesting idea on paper --tender songs written by Andreas the artist, heavy bass drummed out by Dorau the party animal. "IbdEvuB"was conceived as an extraordinary album of severance. Fine on paper, yes, but in practice?... Well, it took eight years, didn't it? Eight years of nerve-shredding fiddling around, but ultimately well worth the effort. House, soft rock, disco, glam pop, blended into a dazzling whole of Andreas and Dorau. Some of it recorded and produced in the garage, the rest in the legendary Can Studio in Weilerswist. Did Andreas and Dorau change the world with Ich bin der Eine von uns Beiden? Probably not, but they did manage to create a magnificent, timeless, electronic pop album which merits rediscovery. That's something! Remastered." - Tapete 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.
