FLYNT & NOVABILLY, HENRY - NovaBilly

Taste the magic! NovaBilly is another edible audible from Henry Flynts dusty lower Manhattan bunker and it stands as one of the fullest, most beauteous document of Flynts tenure with a full working rock band to date. For less than one calendar year between 1974 and 1975, Henry Flynts hard driving, heavy jamming agit country rock band, NovaBilly embraced bareknuckled deep fried groove attacks, bearded hippie jam band workouts & a monstrous melange of blues, boogie and free jazz squeal into a musical soufflé that could only have come together with Flynt cooking up what was proven to be, time and again, an impossible vision within the confines of the SOHO art orbit of the 70s. After a couple performances at Anthology Film Archives and studio sessions in Richmond, Virginia and Manhattan, the band postered SOHO in a last ditch effort to get some traction with the hipsters that read, Party on down to the Kitchen. Stoned country music for rock country. The gig, like all the others before it, was poorly attended. NovaBilly played what would be their last live gig at the Kitchen on June 27, 1975. NovaBilly covers a damned fine and important moment in Henry Flynts musical career. If the Insurrections laid the foundation for his anti-war primitive garage rock sound, the emergence, nearly a decade later, of NovaBilly is the realization of Henrys own vision of obtuse personal politics (I was a creep), provocative left-wing posturing (check their version of the world communist anthem The International!) and a gleefully recombinant spin on southern music. 13 cuts and 60 minutes of old glory! - Locust.

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.
