Creel Pone


Heres a first (for Creel Pone at least) - a reproduction of the debut album by this Venezualan electro-acoustic collective, featuring Luis Levin, Alvise Sacchi, and Stefano Gramitto, recorded at some point between the groups inception in 1978 and the release of this lp in 1983. This one flew right in, way below my own radar - ive never heard/seen reference to this ensemble (nor its individual members!) - yet the music inside is yielding some fairly lofty comparisons; namely snatches of 60s-era INA-GRM concrète, electro-acoustic free-improv ensembles such as the other Grup(p)o, and synth-drone mavericks such as Jean-Claude Eloy and even Maurizio Bianchi. The overall wasted/challenged fidelity really drives it home... but whats the most remarkable is how the Grupo shift seemlessly between -جø¬-??serious-جø¬-?-جø¬- avant-garde signifiers (much ring-modulation of dissonant source material) and almost -جø¬-??pop-جø¬-?-جø¬- chord-progressions & sentimentalities (think: the kind of melodies evident on the -جø¬-??Song of the Second Moon-جø¬-?-جø¬- lp.) This sort of sensibility is referred to elsewhere on the web as -جø¬-??prog moves-جø¬-?-جø¬- (apt, even though that phrase causes me a little bit of dyspepsia every time i read it...). This Creel Pone comes with a reproduction of the hand-written/typed xerox insert, explaning the details of the ensembles modus (in Spanish) with diagrams and sketches (and at least one photo of a Grupo member with an iguana/sprite or two on his shoulders!) again, like -جø¬-??Iatrogenics-جø¬-?-جø¬- - not the hardcore dark-academia typical of the mid-series Creel Pone, but much closer in spirit to titles such as the Fuzzy/Svend Christiansen &/or the Warren Jepson. - Creel Pone.

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.
