FLYNT, HENRY - I Was A Creep

another fix from the Henry Flynt vaults featuring henry with his downtown NY agitcountry band NovaBilly. Culled from the May 1975 NovaBilly concert at Anthology Film Archives, youd be hard pressed to find a finer representation of Henrys convergence of high lonesome Carolina hillbilly twang and the NY no wave groove than on these two sides: I was a creep (soul mash" & Left Ear (Greensboro Senior High Song). Get it fast! We only did up 300 copies of this one & when theyre gone, theyre gone." - Locust."If I hadnt known already it was Henry Flynt, Id have swore it was a recording of Bob Mothersbaugh fronting 10 60 75 (The Numbers Band) from some long forgotten Saturday night stint at JBs in Kent. Those chooglin barroom blues, weve all hadem! The flip is way more curious & shows the real Rolling Thunder that year didnt belong to Dylans revue but instead to an anonymous bunch called NovaBilly whose solid backbeats & higher key interactions of fiddles n gits reduces the white frocked, turban wearing, mime-faced Renaldo & Clara folly to the outhouse of hokum.In fact, this is so great I got an uncontrollable urge to scream Fuck Bob Neuwirth! at the top of my lungs. So please excuse me while I amble down to the basement & expell my catharsis. Thank you." - Siltblog."This thing is a sophistos "real people" disc, recorded by this Flynt guy in 1975 some time after the holler depicted on those LPs. Ill just say that the a-side sounds like 1979 no-wave as predicted using a Roxy Music-brand magic eight ball and that the flip is just a serious bite of moon cheese, weird and disorienting. There aint very many of these and life is too short to harbor regret-جø¬-?-جø¬-as I have learned. Rats." - Z Gun.

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.
