NO NECK BLUES BAND - Gitanjali + The Nascent Stigma

 "Long delayed, this LP is one of two vinyl releases from recording 
sessions at the Chummery late in 2006. The Chummery was the Seattle 
home to Sun City Girls, Sublime Frequencies, Abduction, and The Sea 
Donkeys. In fact it was the last residence of Charles Gocher who 
passed away in there only a few months after this session.  Along 
side this there is the highlight from NNCK's concert in Vancouver, 
British Columbia on that same trip.

This record follows the 10" called "Gitanjali". Despite the 
similarity in title, the two records contain completely different 
material from the same session. It is a record in two parts, much 
like their "A Tabu Two" released as two separate LPs on the New World 
of Sound label back in 1997.

From Alan Bishop's liner notes: "One night when I slept on the sofa, 
serenaded to sleep by the polyrhythmic purring of our guests, I 
dreamt that Lyndon Johnson sent this outfit into the jungle all alone 
to battle the Viet Cong. A giant cargo plane parachuted them in with 
their ceremonial gear and Bob Hope's PA system. After three or four 
days of producing slow burning sound signals curling in and around 
the foggy Mekong, Charlie fled en masse to Cambodia to do a photo 
shoot with Dennis Hopper."

NNCK's activity was the first documented in 1994. Since then they 
have gone on to be represented by The Shadow Ring's Dry Leaf Discs, 
Ecstatic Yod, SER/SERES, John Fahey's Revenant, Kill Rock Stars 
sub-label 5 Rue Christine, Staubgold, Les Disque Victo, Locust Music, 
Alga Marghen side label Planam, Kelippah, and their own Sound@One 
imprint. They have toured North America and Europe although have 
rarely played live in later years. Members of NNCK have been involved 
in a wide range of other musical projects including Angelblood, 
Sabbath Assembly, D. Charles Speer & The Helix, Enos Slaughter, 
Rhyton, Suntanama, Coach Fingers, K-Salvatore, Izititiz, Malkuth, 
Test, Key of Shame, Decimus, Raajmahal, and Ki. 180 gram RTI pressing, Stoughton jackets, two inserts, one with liner notes by Alan Bishop. Limited edition of 300 copies." - Ri Be Xibalba.

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.
