DARK DAY - Darkest Before Dawn

Performance artist Robin Crutchfield moved to New York City in the mid-1970s to participate in the growing Soho and Tribeca art scene. After some critical success, he crossed over into music co-founding the experimental No Wave noise band DNA, which recorded tracks for the No New York album with Brian Eno. After a year with DNA, he departed to form his own musical project, DARK DAY, with an array of various guest performers including Steven Brown of Tuxedomoon, filmmaker Jim Jarmusch, Nina Canal from Ut, and others. He continued on alone releasing a number of albums in styles ranging from cold wave, to medieval pagan, to quirky electronica. - Nigh Eve. Re: Darkest Before Dawn - "Medieval Pagan processionals, dirges and dances for\r\nthe 21st century on pipe organ, rattles, bells and\r\ndrums (with cello).

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.
