TIETCHENS, ASMUS - Zwingburgen des Hedonismus/Mysterien des Hafens

Part 9 of the ongoing re-release series of all early Tietchens albums from 1980-1991 on CD. This combines two separate releases from 1987 (Zwingburgen des Hedonismus) and 1988 (Mysterien des Hafens on Face to Face, Vol. 1). Zwingburgen des Hedonismus was originally released as a one-sided LP on Swedish label Multimood and features a single 21-min. long track composed on a Fairlight CMI. Mysterien des Hafens was part of a split LP (the other side feat. Die Form) originally released on French label Odd Size and featuring recordings made by Tietchens using underwater microphones. The bonus track Faircomp 1K on this CD is a different version of the first track and previously unreleased. First edition of 600 copies in jewel case with full cover artwork and poster booklet also feat. the original album covers. -Die Stadt

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.
