CONCRETE RUBBER BAND - Risen Saviour

2006 reissue. "Official reissue of this Christian underground basement psychedelic rock album, a massively-rare 1974 release on the Missouri-based American Artists label (AAS1164), of which only 2 or three copies are known to be exist in private collections. Despite the song titles, this is actually a strange and unusual rock album which just happens to have religious undertones. Organ, fuzz guitar, male and female lead vocals and masses of electronic embellishments. High-quality vinyl transfer, includes two [uncredited] bonus tracks from a later recording session. Previously pirated by Radioactive Records. Some of the most out there psychedelic sounds can be found on this Kansas trios mega-rare custom LP. One of the first Christian groups to tinker with synthesizers and be experimental at the same time. The song, Christian, for example, opens with a Bach fugue before laying in its steady rock beat punctuated with subterranean wah-wah guitar and a wild, heavily modulated synth lead. The song, Wicked, opens side two with a bizarre amalgam of what sounds like synthesized, bubbling lava pits, frequency oscillations, distorted, sci-fi vocals and shortwave, static patterns. This is Christian psychedelia at its most underground and extreme with all the ear marks of a bad drug trip which, given the songs dark subject matter, works just fine. Likewise, What Shall We Do? opens with a lengthy outpouring of some of the most vicious, distorted fuzz guitar ever then relaxes into a spooky, dream-like ballad before it climaxes with a flying saucer effect that sounds straight out of Dark Side Of The Moon. There are several fine and moody garage tracks here as well. Difficult to describe: they are highly listenable and quite creative. Dense echoes lend to the homemade feel of the entire project. A monster for sure with fewer than 500 LPs made at the initial pressing. Duncan Long, the main man behind the synths, guitars and song writing is now a published science fiction author." - Hidden Vision.

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.
