Next up on the Great Pop Supplement, comes a mighty 45 pairing longtime Missouri friends Jerusalem and the Starbaskets and Hush Arbors.A fabulous band, JATS debut here with the formidable -¢??I Cannot Radiato Without You-¢?¬ù. A spiky 2 chord blast clocking in at under 2 minutes of perfect pop. Acting as a taster for the stunning -¢??Battle of the Orchids-¢?¬ù imminent full length (on the GPS soon), the band merge the ferocity of the Sonics with the tenderness of Galaxie 500 or 3rd album Velvets. Wacked out, often ferocious, psych blues- a taster from which appears here.Hush Arbors recent expansion to a two piece, debut here on vinyl, with -¢??Mr. Bones-¢?¬ù, another gem from the songwriting genius of Keith Wood. A gentle acoustic opening gives way to a fuller, perhaps busier, 12 string laced sound- not unlike some unreleased nugget from the Gene Clark -¢??Roadmaster-¢?¬ù sessions where he coaxed the original Byrds to reconvene for one last time on wax-¢?¬¶.Very limited vinyl only 45, on split one half orange, one half green vinyl. Get on it!- The Great Pop Supplement
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.
