From the dark abyss of British underground rock comes the near-mythological Lucifer. The anarchist antichrist has remained an enigma since his recordings appeared in the underground press in 1971. It was not until the 1990s that the true identity of Lucifer was revealed as filmmaker, musician, and all-around electronics whiz-kid Denys Irving, a close friend of the enigmatic Howard Marks, with whom he attended the University of Oxford in the late 60s. Irvings short films have now been salvaged, restored, and appraised, to help celebrate the work of a truly inspired and iconic genius. Dance with the Devil contains all of Irvings known Lucifer recordings, combining his all of his privately-pressed rarities for the first time. The debut Lucifer album, Big Gun, was originally released in 1972 and the ultra-rare second work, soundtrack album Exit, followed later that year. Dance with the Devil also collects the four Lucifer singles, originally released between 1971 and 73. This edition also boasts original artwork, numerous pieces of rare archival memorabilia and photos, and a detailed account of the man behind the music. For lovers of demonic rock, early electronica, or plain fuzz-driven proto-punk, this is a unique opportunity to sample the devil at work.

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.
