"During the summer of 1981, a young Art Injeyan attended the now infamous _¢‚Ǩ_ìfinal transmission_¢‚Ǩ¬ù of Throbbing Gristle in San Francisco_¢‚Ǩ‚Ѣs Kezar Pavillion. This concert experience forever changed the fabric of bay area experimental music and sent a sonic riptide through artists such as Injeyan to form their own experimental projects. After this seed had been planted, Injeyan started pulling together a crude, loose arrangement of musical equipment and creating pulsating industrial drones and noise rhythms under his newly coined masthead Deviation Social. Starting in June and wrapping up in October of 1981, Deviation Social had composed his first demo comprised of individual staged practices in his home. To release his demo and later audio / visual works , he founded his own label, Ppresense Records, to release all matters connected to Deviation Social. This demo was only distributed to a select few and limited to a hand-numbered edition of 25 cassettes in late 1981, now making it one of the more rare and sought after early industrial documents.\r\n \r\nDais is proud to reissue this demo in a vinyl format in a limited edition of 250 copies. Hand stamped, numbered and assembled to give homage to the original release and to celebrate the release series between Dais Records and Deviation Social. - Dais.
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.
