CD reissue of the first (of two) self released albums put out by Eddy Detroit (his third album would come out many years later on Majora, Jungle Captive, in 1997. Very exotic cult folk and primitive rock album, led by the irrepressible vocal presence of Eddy. "A reissue of more material from the early 80s Phoenix underground music scene, contemporary with Paris 1942; this time none other than the first LP by Eddy Detroit... this was self released in 1982 and has been pretty impossible to find for quite a few years. Featuring an all star lineup including Mary and Dan Clark (Victory Acres), Charlie Gocher and Alan Bishop (Sun City Girls), James Verlaine (aka J. Akkari from Paris 1942) and others, this has turned out to be one of my favorite records documenting a scene I pissed away a whole lot of my just barely post adolescence loitering in and around." - Nick Schultz.
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.
