ESPLENDOR GEOMETRICO - 1980-1981 Prehistoric Sounds - Necrosis en la Poya & More
"Special deluxe edition, limited to 1,000 numbered copies in a hard cardboard box set which includes three 7" singles (each with its own sleeve), a CD in a slim cardboard sleeve, an 8-page booklet and a numbered card. It contains the first material recorded by Spanish cult legends Esplendor Geométrico between 1980 and 1981. One of the singles includes their first demo, recorded after their formation, with three tracks of industrial-minimal-techno-pop, among which is the well-known "Moscö Est-ɬ° Helado." This demo was sent in 1980 to the German label Ata Tak, run by Der Plan, who chose "Moscö..." for their legendary compilation Fix Planet!. The second single is a facsimile reissue of Necrosis en la Poya, originally released in 1981 and which already shows EGs shift towards harsher industrial rhythms. Finally, the third single includes four tracks recorded in 1981 soon after Necrosis... Three of them are previously-unreleased and were found recently on an old, lost reel tape. The CD includes the 10 tracks from the singles plus another five extra tracks from the same period, originally released on the cassette Esplendor Geométrico 1980-1981. The 8-page booklet features texts, designs and period photos. All tracks have been remastered and the artwork is by Juan Carlos Sastre, professional designer and founding member of EG." -Geometrik.
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.
