"I imagined a movie. The movie, made in 2029, begins as Two Lovers drive through an unending forest — already we are disoriented — Germany? Russia? The Ozarks? And then a crash. They find their way to The Obelisk — a walled asylum built on the edge of the Black Sun. The doctors here are in fact Psychotronic Biologists; the inmates are tunnels to the edge-of-the-cosmos source of witchcraft, despair, and power. The Lovers fight against the impulse to transform their own flesh. They fight the nightside sister-entities Morbida, Destruda, and Libida. Soon our own childhood traumas and fears merge onto the screen as demonic inmates watch “mind movies” projected in beams of light from their own skulls. By the end, the audience is rooting for the destruction of The Obelisk — both the movie and the structure depicted within — while our heroine, harrowed by humanity’s damage-made-flesh, attempts to resurrect her lover using theoccult controls at the heart of the facility. This movie from the future seemed to be projected back to my own mind, echoing from the Outer Gateways. My score is a recapturing of the movie beginning with the opening credits overture and a journey through The Dark Road, through the agonies of telepathic destruction and the psychic landscape of the Woods. It ends in the hellish evocation of a Centrifuge and an epiphany about what is controlled by the Control Room." - AEM.
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.
