First album under his own name. This compilation is the best works of Thierry Müller during his first 10 years 1974 - 1984! Titled clearly, all tracks presented are rare and almost all are published here for the first time and came from the all 5 different formations of TMs early days: Arcane (never released before - 1974 TMs first band, dark underground madness), Ilitch (unreleased live recordings 1975), Breaking Point (never released before - 1978 genius-synthi-pop) , Ruth (1978 rare tracks, trash punk romantic) and Crash (1984 with Philippe Doray - warning: the track Pile ou Face is possibly the best electro-pop song writing in all France in the 80s, absolute chef-doeuvre). Selected carefully from all TMs archives, this music will be without a doubt, the holy grail for all Ilitchs and Ruths fanatics. Full of creativity, imagination and energy, this album is definitely the level higher. All tracks here are French underground masterpieces! CD edition, booklet 19 pages with many unreleased pictures and liner notes. - Fractal.
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.
