"Since 2014 Gary Mundy of Ramleh has been releasing most of his solo work through Fourth Dimension. In the Guts of a Year is his sixth such album for the label (not including a reissue of 2009's The Return album (FD 094CD), originally released as an LP by USA's Noiseville, and the reissues of the Broken Flag LPs Mobility and Do Not and brings together another six lengthy new cuts. Keeping in line with where his work has been going in recent years, these merge atmospheric noise, church-like organ groans, frazzled guitar snatched from the stratosphere and the occasional vocals that would do a wailing spirit proud. Although little like Ramleh themselves, the vehement interest in squeezing new sounds out of the given instruments in order to create vast, immersive blankets to lose oneself in remain a common factor. Defiant, bold and charged with an energy that could power a small country for several months, In the Guts of a Year is another great entry in Gary's continuing quest to make sense of a world forever falling apart at the seams. This is the twelfth Kleistwahr album since 1983's Myth." - Fourth Dimension .
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.
