Cherry Red


Cherry Red is delighted to announce the release of another classic album from John Peels Dandelion Records catalogue, 1971s self-titled Stack Waddy, a raucous four-piece from Manchester. Peel had first seen the band at the Buxton Blues Festival in September 1969. Their performance made a big impression, and a first single, Kentucky/Roadrunner, was released just under a year later in August 1970, they soon became Peels favorite band on the label. Raw, rockin power bottled in 1971 and unleashed again here! On stage they were loud, aggressive, fairly pissed and remarkably unsubtle, as befitted musicians who were often forced to supplement their meager gig money by working days on construction sites. Their frustrations and energies were poured into music that it was impossible to ignore. In fact, you were better off not to try to ignore it because one of the many Stack Waddy atrocity stories has John Knail (lead singer) jumping off-stage to beat to the floor a man who was paying more attention to his lady than to the band. As the late John Peel OBE said Stackwaddy were absolutely incorrigible, everything a rock n roll band should be. - Cherry Red

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.
