LOS INICIADOS - La Marca de Anubis + El Cantor de Jazz
"Originally released in 1982 on the DRO label, La Marca De Anubis was the debut album by Los Iniciados, an obscure project related to legendary Spanish synth-pop band Aviador Dro. Always shrouded in mystery, Los Iniciados decided to hide their identities behind masks. The only visible and confirmed member was Arco Iris (Aviador Dro member Marta Cervera). According to rumors, behind the other nicknames were Biovac N(Servando Carballar, founder of Aviador Dro and DRO label head) and members of Spanish post-punks Alphaville. On La Marca De AnubisJesús Arias of punk band T.N.T.) joins on electric guitar. The album was produced by Carballar and is an intriguing mélange of dark and eerie minimal synth/dark wave sounds with a post-punk edge. It is also highly influenced by The Residents, Dadaism, performance art and ancient Egyptian cults. La Marca De Anubisincludes cult classics like "Peter Pan", "Soy El Vacío", and more. Remastered from the original tapes and presented with original artwork, a 12-page LP-sized booklet and a bonus 7" EP, El Cantor De Jazz (1982)." - Mental Experience.
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.
