Trilogy

I.U.D./BLACK LODGE - S/T

Poitiers is a town on the Clain River in West Central France. Lots of Visigoths used to live in Poitiers. It is currently home to a permanently stoned gallery called Le Comfort Moderne - a sort of non-profit space for Art and Music, complete with Zine Biblioteque, record shop, bar, and couscous restaurant. A wonderful place that could only exist in a town in Northern Europe. A place that trusts its\r\ncitizens to take two and a half hours for lunch, get pissed, and make it back to work. It is only a place such as this that an improbable show like Black\r\nLodge / I.U.D. could take place. Or that Black Lodge could come across a first (and only) edition print of Celines highly controversial pamphlet Bagatelles pour un massacre amongst compilation DVDs of\r\ninterviews with the author. Although, despite the modest asking price of 150 euros, the book remains in the shop. 1 of every 3 people in\r\nPoitiers is under the age of 30, and 1 of every 4 people in Poitiers is a student. It has more students per inhabitant than any other city in France. There are more than 27000 of them. Surprisingly few of these students seemed to be at the show. There\r\nwere two bedreadlocked crust-punks though. They wrote Squat Le Monde! on the toilet wall. They must have been either delighted or appalled to see Black Lodge lay two copies of Shaved Women Collaborators by Crass on three decks, each 7 with bits of sellotape on... I couldnt tell... a tone, a pulse, followed by a warning ("shaved women, collaborators!"). The collaborators in question were\r\nI.U.D. The alliance was formed, probably hours previously over couscous and beer. I.U.D. were billed to play separately, following Black Lodge, but given the overall nature of the event, playing\r\ntogether was instantly deemed preferable and appropriate. This recording is the result. At parts, it was as if a mosh pit had been digitally removed from the room." -Oliver Payne

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.
