Lets start with a re-cap of the discography of El Jesus De Magico. Theres the crust punk rental property destroying Scratch Acid-ish x-tendo jams of their first CD, and theres the underground Taiwanese jungle kick boxing circuit bending chants of their last LP. Theres the darker side of Flying Nun indie by way of Skin Graft on their Unclean Ghost single and theres the AM radio conspiracy theorist Kennedy family bad vibes occultism of their Funeral Home Sessions E.P. And now theres this...KLIP AUGHT, their 3rd single and 5th release. This record swings from Spacemen 3 to Jesus and Mary Chain to Dinosaur Jr to the Puddle to Mayo Thompson without a lot of effort. All of the weirdness is distills into a single that hangs around in the neighborhood of their earlier singles. A tight pop music take on a thousand-million little bits of twenty-five years of underground music, all kind of run through the energy you get from recording and practicing around ghosts, corpses, milk crates full of fan club vinyl and pictures of obscure American Aristocrats in a downtown funeral home in Columbus, OH. This is another excellent single by a band that continues to build a remarkable and confounding discography. - Columbus Discount.
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.
