"Inonu is the last collaboration between the three founding members of the industrial band Urbain Autopsy, originally released in 1988, in a box containing two C40 tapes, a booklet and a leaflet on the now defunct Tears Compilations label. Inonu is a concept album, it is divided in four acts, themselves divided in scenes, and as it is a story there is no dead time between each scene. The pieces follow one another like in life. Inonu tells a slice of history of the life of an imaginary totalitarian country, which could make think of an ex-Eastern country, who knows? It should be noted that Inonu was published one year before the collapse of the communist bloc... One can also compare the architecture, the constructivist art, and the industrial music of Urbain Autopsy and notice the osmosis that emerges. Some names have been picked at random from an encyclopedia. Their realities have no relation with the fiction transmitted in Inonu. The story that begins is known... Act 1: It tells the story of a country dominated by a dictator, with the recurrent theme of "an iron fist" and that of an oppressed people; Act 2: Two revolutionaries form a coalition to eliminate the dictator and begin rebuilding the country; Act 3: One of the two revolutionaries, having more desire for sole power, eliminates his friend and takes over the reins of the country by force; Act 4: The phrase "the snake that bites its own tail" is used again, and over time he becomes a new dictator with the same problems as before. The imaginary and the factual collide in the present. This musical concept generates a futuristic collaboration between the musicians, the illustrator and the editor of this double album. What a visionary look the group Urbain Autopsy had in 1988 when they conceptualized a fictional reality, one year before the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, the dislocation of the USSR in 1991, the Balkan Wars of the 1990s, these transforming states into myriads of micro-states, often implying a rise of authoritarianism. So today, in this year 2022, this incomprehensible or programmed war (each one will choose) between two European countries, can we see a vision in it? See the subtitle of Act III: "The Fratricide". Illustrations by Enki Bilal. Double-CD version comes deluxe DVD style packaging." - Rotorelief.

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.
