Lexicon Devil

F/i - Paradise Out Here

Reissued by Lexicon Devil in 2006. Originally released on the Human Wrechords label in 1989, Paradise Out Here has long been the most elusive and sought-after recording from Milwaukees space-rock giants, F/i. Having once again gained a substantial cult following after the other F/i reissues Lexicon Devil has released over the last 5 years, the band came back together. The time is right to get the one non-RRRecords LP from the 80s back into the public eye, and since the LP was only released in an edition of 300 copies, therell be plenty who will want to hear this. Recorded between the Why Not? and Blue Star LPs, it captures the band in peak form. The opener, From Poppy With Love" is one of the bands strongest numbers, a surging collision of 80s punk rock energy dosed in clouds of cosmic guitar fuzz. It slays. The drive of the following two songs, "The House Of The Pharaohs Daughter" and "The Ninth Corner," never lets up until the band sets the controls for the heart of the sun with the nigh-on 20-minutes tribal dirge of "Om 21." The holy combination of amp-destroying guitar noise, anchored, low-end bass, rock-steady drumming and other-worldly synth whoops and bleeps is a beauty to experience. To finish it off, the band has whacked on two bonus tracks, "Satellite Surfer" and "Five Crowns Of The Saxon King," both recorded around the same period, as a taster for the bounties they have sitting around in dusty tape boxes. Paradise Out Here could just be F/is best recorded work, and Lexicon Devil is pleased to get it out once again for a whole new generation of fans. Fully remastered by the band with all new artwork." -Lexicon Devil\r\n\r\n

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.
