KONSTRUKT FEATURING ALAN WILKINSON, ALEXANDER HAWKINS & DANIEL SPICER - L.O.T.U.S.
Limited to 300 copies. "Konstrukt has made contact both Alexander Hawkins and Alan Wilkinson during their presence at Konfrontationen Festival in Nickelsdorf in 2013 where the band performed for the second time in Austria after Saalfelden Jazz Festival with Marshall Allen in 2011. All three parts were excited and have agreed to get together sometime in the future.
In 2015, Konstrukt shared the stage at Café Oto, London with Alexander Hawkins for the first time during their European Tour. It was a total blast and this performance resulted on DL by Café Oto’s in-house label Otoroku and released next year as double LP by Italian label Holidays Records. In 2016, when the band has been invited by Brighton Alternative Jazz Festival to play a UK date again with Alexander Hawkins, London, Cafe Too was chosen as their next stop, and they finally managed to have Alan and Daniel (promoter, musician, critic, writer, radio host) on board and Alexander most naturally joined the band again to perform in a large scale orchestra. The result was a night of music with high energy and a wide musical perspective. From drum&bass to ethnic funk vibes, from straight free jazz bursts to spiritual chantings, the whole performance here shows a wide range of outer wordly aspects of all musicians present.Konstrukt is very grateful to be able to work with Omlott again on this recording, after their first collaboration with Joe McPhee on their critically acclaimed “If You Have Time LP”." - Omlott.
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.
