Drag City

FEMS - Go to a Party

Drag City resurrects the fantastic-Ç sound of THE FEMS. To do so, they had to-Ç travel back to the year 1982, when this-Ç single was pressed in some insignificant amount by the band-Ç and spread around the country, one copy at a time. The Fems-Ç represented early American hardcore punk at a time when-Ç speed wasnt necessary in order to punk out and the intersection of angst and humor was a common crossroads for aspirant-Ç songwriters. Hence, the barbed humor of Go To A Party" and-Ç "Is It Living?," alongside the primal screaming of "Order." The-Ç Fems were a legend in their hometown of Buffalo, presiding-Ç over energy-charged crowds with loads of sarcastic banter and-Ç making themselves a party favorite in the wide-open early 80s.-Ç Their 7-inch EP Go To A Party was recorded with the vocals,-Ç drums and bass closest to the mic and the guitar somewhere in-Ç the next room-but the low, rumbling sound that resulted is a-Ç unique vision from early punk days. For frustrated collectors, its a must-have-but not too many copies have been pressed,-Ç as part of our effort to duplicate the original release in every-Ç way." - Drag City.

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.
