Reissue of the very rare french single punk of 1981 by this group of Bordeaux. 300 copies.
"It all begins in the spring of 1978 when Kick, singer of Strychnine friend of Thierry (Heinenken at the time), presents him two of his friends, one bassist, other drummer: Richard Brousse and Jean de Rivière. Vincent "Tungstène" Simonacci, a student of Chinoi ( in the punk group Coral de la Teste-De-Buch) is recruited after working hard to impress his examiners.... According to legend, Beber, who had a superb bass that he had never played in his life, investigated the repertoire in a few days.
...In this destroy movement are the occasional punks, students of Archi and Fine Arts lovers of Andy Warhol, and the most authentic, more titillated of the castagne. The latter feed the darkest face of the group. Stalag becomes identifiable for institutions that call it "disturbance to public order". Some concerts are canceled in prevention. It is as much the excesses as the ultra-realism of the revolutionary message that make Stalag a historical group. " - excerpt from the book Bordeaux Rock(s) by Denis Fouquet (via Google Translate).
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.
