The Door And The Window

DOOR AND THE WINDOW, THE - Doctor Egg - Live Recordings 1983-1987

having abandoned their earlier angry mode these recordings see the door and the window retain their typically inspired but musically inept disposition as they explore their physical and spiritual world and send back their idiosyncratic dispatches.after having spent several years in the late 70s and early 80s rapidly recording and releasing a number of records, nag and bendle decided to start sitting on their recordings -¢?? -¢??why dont we wait 20 years and see if this is still worth releasing?-¢?¬ù having an ethos of allowing ridiculous ideas to surface and then meticulously following them to their conclusion, they were bound to pursue this. (around the time of these recordings nag and bendle travelled on a number of strange protracted pilgrimages inspired by a number of popular phrases such as -¢??send him to coventry-¢?¬ù and -¢??taking coals to newcastle-¢?¬ù).serendipity would have it that at the end of this 20 year wait overground records saw fit this summer to issue a cd release of the door and the windows lp -¢??detailed twang-¢?¬ù from the time when tdatw was nag, bendle and mark perry. cynically building upon the marketing opportunity presented by the overwhelming interest shown in that recording, nag and bendle are now releasing this compilation of various tdatw lineups.other info: initially inspired by the first wave of industrial bands and the ethos of diy pioneers like the desperate bicycles and scritti politti, nag and bendle played their first gig and recorded their first single sometime before they bothered to rehearse. playing with an ever-changing lineup tdatw became first gradually rhythmic and then melodic. unhappy to remain in one musical ghetto, they inhabited several -¢?? playing gigs with post punks and ska bands, playing free tours with idealist hippies and gradually becoming deeply involved with the london musicians collective. they co-produced a magazine about the politics of record production, hosted the seminal -¢??jazz punk bonanza-¢?¬ù festivals of 1980, 82 and 86 and ran the weirdly eclectic sprouts conspiracy cabaret club. nag and bendle also played in the 49 americans and the liberated sound octet, nag played with mark perry and karl blake in the reflections and bendle with the casual labourers and the late music group. - TDATW.

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.
