DESMADRADOS SOLDADOS DE VENTURA - Clifton Park Vol. 1
Sixth LP -- and part one of a two-part set -- from Manchester, UK-based free rock floatation unit DSDV. The band accepted an invitation by Burnt Hills guitarist Parashi to hole up in his Clifton Park, NY, basement and make a record in April 2015, and Parashi sat in with his bandmate Rambutan to wail with the guys. Starting out with an uncharacteristically straight-up Nick Mitchell riff, the record soon picks up a cloud and surfs it to 300,000 feet, the wind whipping through the bands hair for almost a solid hour of what turned out to be the most ecstatic jam they ever did have. Mixed and mastered by Bojanic Audio & Mastering, Manchester, UK. Dave Birchall: guitar; Andrew Cheetham: drums; Dylan Hughes: guitar; Nick Mitchell: guitar; Parashi: guitar; Rambutan: guitar; Edwin Stevens: guitar; Otto Willberg: bass. Features unique artwork combinations by John Moloney with every copy -- no two alike. 140-gram vinyl. Edition of 250. Absolutely essential two volume collection with crazy Heitkotter esque artwork courtesy of Sunburned Hands John Moloney -- both references work sonically as well -- DSDV are one of the preeminent free rock bands out there, cutting edge, tip of the spear, reconciling out-there free jazz -- maybe think Coltranes Ascension -- with pummeling heavy psych straddling Bardo Pond and The Stooges -- the drummer and bassist maintain an in-and-out telepathic groove while six freaked out guitarists cut loose like almost nothin youve ever heard, a semi improvised yet well considered exposition of riffs -- my god, its full of riffs -- prepare yourself for a hundred minute hurricane of mind-blowing finger-blistering bliss." - Psi Lab.
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.
