Humbug

V/A - Cottage Industrial Volume 3

Third instalment of our eclectic compilation series,fully sucked to capacity at 79:59, though theresonly" 17 tracks this time. You get two tracks fromnorwegian duo RYFYLKE (Humbug releases an LP with themsometime in 2005!), bristling with heavy frequencies.A sample of up-close "selbstverprügelung" and subtlebarnyard heckling from unidentified mental patientsRAIONBASHI. Crude electronics from WAWA. A glacial andfeverish meditation for metals, springs, radio andwire hangers by ORANGE, MANIFOLD. SINISTRI aresculptors of molten pulses and charged convulsions,look out for their album on the Häpna label in thespring. Theres two tracks from PH-جø¬-? - a short blasttaken from "This is Handiwork" CD + a live track fromRhiz in Wien where the boys are fronted by one DidiBruckmayr in best maniacal form. Also from Italy(along with Sinistri) are OvO, hot on the heels oftheir fully cracked jamz of the live tape on Imvated.This trackss for guitar and whistles, Stefania andBruno captured here in full stereo sound. WOODEN WAND& SATYA SAI BABA exhales and hits a strident rockchord, trances out, lays it bare. "Wet Margarete" byEXCEPTER is a keening call to hush things down, beforethe gorgeous slow movements of LUNTs "You Keep MeUnafraid", a daydreaming haze of crystalline guitarloops. MASKINANLEGG tests your stereo output, whileMOTHs "Ohne Titel" (the final Moth recording), drawsto a fried conclusion with subliminal hum and skeletalbuzzes. ANDERS HANAs piece is quiet and poised,barely pinches the skin. VIOLETS ROCK N ROLL suggestsin the crudest of terms you better get the hell out ofhere, and finally IDEA FIRE COMPANY offers a salute tothe weary listener with the epic 11-minute"Heroes".Comes in a heavy full colour cardboardpackaging, stupefying "pensjonist" themed artwork, aninsert and a sticker. Limited to something." - Humbug.

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.
