LOS LICHIS & PAKITO BOLINO - Savage Lichis Religion: El Ultimo Grito
Unbridled live match-up, recorded in November 2016 in an Oaxacan gallery, pitting Mexicos most brutal art collective (Los Lichis) against the fractured French brain behind le Dernier Cri (Pakito Bolino). Many dont realize it, since Pakitos insane artwork and silkscreened books are so overwhelming, but hes also a guitarist and singer. Were hoping to reissue some of the musical work he did with his band Mug in the near future. But thats not what were talking about here. Savage Lichis Religion is a wonderful extension of the brilliance they showed on Dog (FTR 229LP, 2016), blending noise, psych, prog, experimental whatsis and all else into a totally batshit free-rock stew. This is a classic of vents-burst aesthetic demolition. It would be easy to sell test pressings as some lost, unreleased piece of the Futura RED series. Its hard for a mere mortal (who wasnt there) to pick out exactly what it is that Pakito adds to the chaos. Were assuming its the gut-pricking guitar feedback that squeedles up from the depths, but no matter what it is hes doing, all we can say is KEEP DOING IT. Pakito also did the eye-pleasing cover art and insert for the LP. Thanks. And hate to end on a bummer, but well dedicate this release to the memory of José Luis Rojas, a long-time member of Los Lichis who died at the end of 2017. Long may his memory burn. - Byron Coley.
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.
