HOTOTOGISU & BURNING STAR CORE - Volume 1

Live in-person collaborations between Hototogisu and the BxC.\r\nHototogisu, as you know, are the time-defying duo of Matthew Bower\r\n(Skullflower, Ramleh, Sunroof!, Total, etc.) and Marcia Bassett\r\n(Double Leopards, GHQ, Zaimph, etc.). For these sessions, Burning\r\nStar Core was C. Spencer Yeh, Robert Beatty, and Trevor Tremaine (the\r\nlatter two being of Hair Police, Eyes and Arms of Smoke, Sick Hour,\r\netc.). Note that the music on this disc is different material from\r\nthe Heavy Blossom companion volume "HG/BxC II" released earlier this\r\nyear.\r\nFive tracks, totalling approximately fifty minutes. Packed into the\r\nsmall Horrible Room (RIP) inside the Cedar House (RIP) down in\r\nLexington KY (still alive), individuals huddled in every corner,\r\npainting the room in colored cables, glossy wood and metal boxes.\r\nDeafness and disorientation was administered through the afternoon on\r\ninto the night. Summoning over two hours of recorded tape, it was\r\ndecided to cut the baby in half for adoption between two imprints.\r\nHeavy Blossom ferried away the long thick sides of torso, and\r\nDronedisco seized the hooves, antlers, and jaw. The disc starts off\r\nwith an appropriate invocation; from there punches blindly through one\r\nstone cloud after another, coughs and gasps from exhaustion, stumbles\r\nand lies motionless. The ritual concludes with a moment of naked\r\nacoustic/instinctual spasm, then a cut-off.\r\nOriginally released in a very small quantity on CD-R as merchandise\r\nduring various US and UK spring tours, the Dronedisco half of these\r\nsessions has been edited and resequenced for this release in the\r\nautumn. The pro-pressed disc comes in a black polycase with black and\r\nwhite inserts and a special randomly-selected 1" button (there are\r\nfive button variations in all)." - Dronedisco.

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.
