"Reissue, originally released in 1981. Celebrating the 40th anniversary of EG-1, a seminal work by the influential industrial music pioneers. A classic and essential release of Esplendor Geométrico. After their first single, "Necrosis En La Poya" (1981), Esplendor Geométrico released their first cassette that same year: EG-1. These works were self-produced and distributed by the band themselves, before the appearance of the Spanish independent record labels in the early '80s. The first edition of EG-1 (edition of 300 copies) quickly sold out in the international underground circuit of cassette labels that was emerging during those years. It was reissued on the same format by different labels such as Datenverarbeitung (Germany, 1982), Ortega y Cassette (Barcelona, 1985), EGK (Madrid, 1987) and Línea Alternativa (Madrid, 1989), and later on there would be two CD editions. Without a doubt, EG-1 is one of the fundamental works by Esplendor Geométrico, and is also considered a classic of industrial music, where they started to develop their unique style of rhythmic-noisy-industrial which would be such a great influence on other artists afterwards. Tracks like "Muerte A Escala Industrial", "Destrozaron Sus Ovaries" and "Neuridrina" are regarded by their fans as some of the best recorded by the band. Remastered from the original tapes; includes an exclusive insert and each copy has been individually customized with stickers and hand-stamped; original designs from the first edition of EG-1 have been used; limited-numbered edition of 500 copies." - Geometrik.
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.
