Keijo hails from Jyväskylä, Finland - a small town in the north that claims to be the center of the universe. -Ç In the sprawling Finnish underground, Keijo is the wise sage who everyone admires. -Ç In his 52 years, he has travelled the world twice and seen his share of turmoil. -Ç He was nearly killed in a motorcycle accident and still bears a metal plate in his skull as a constant reminder. -Ç But these experiences have been essential in shaping the sound world he constructs with his fingertips. After releasing a handful of small-run CD-R releases on labels such as Pseudoarcana, Lal Lal Lal, and Foxglove, Palla, Blown From Here sees Keijo finally getting the larger audience he deserves. -Ç He has -Ç worked and collaborated with Finnish acts such as Vapaa, Avarus, and Kheta Hotem. -Ç This CD, limited to 500 copies, sees Keijo taking a more solemn path, reflecting on the quiet moments nature brings. -Ç These nine songs showcase Keijos array of talents, including his impressive throat-singing abilities. -Ç Palla, Blown From Here is the aural transition of summer into autumn. -Ç Over the course of this album, Keijos soft acoustic compositions flow from him like prose from a poets pen. -Ç The beauty this music exudes is a testament to his life and his work. -Ç This is Keijos world and we are just living in it. Packaged in beautiful imported paper in slip case. - Digitalis.
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.
