"Back in the olden days before le Deluge, the preeminence of ones family totem-pole was said to have been determined by how closely your parents were related to one another (incest being best).-Ç This practice died out in most places, but thankfully not in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, lest the world might have been robbed of the chromosomally deficient genius of The Shit Dogs - the inbred kings of redneck punk!-Ç Like a southern-fried Ramones with Hapsburg chins and multiple personality crises, the Shit Dogs over the course of five unbelievably crude blasts dealing in themes of violence, cannibalism and possibly hemophilia, sound unsure if they want to be the Stooges or Black Sabbath; as the cheese whose history the band celebrates grows riper and more inhabited by the second.-Ç Hailing from the city that housed the last remaining leper colony in the continental U.S., The History Of Cheese is a soundtrack of frayed denim, resin scrapings, mildewed walls and t-shirts with cigarette burns.-Ç A bar band thug collision with accidental greatness sure to appeal to fans of the Crucified, the Imperial Dogs and Teenage Queers.-Ç Originally five songs squeezed onto one 7, the attentive quality assurance department at Last Laugh Records has finally given the 5 songs that comprise the Shit Dogs magnum opus the lebensraum they have always so rightly demanded.-Ç YOU BUY IT!" - Last Laugh.
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.
