MERZBOW - Live Destruction at No Fun 2007

At this years No Fun Fest, the legendary Japanese noise king Merzbow\r\ngave a blistering performance that stunningly brought together both\r\nhis classic analog and recently-explored digital concerns. Keeping\r\npace between two laptops and an amplified sheet-metal instrument, the\r\nwalls of computerized droning distortion and psyched-out metallic\r\nscarping easily reminded those attending to the world of noise that\r\neven icons with twenty-plus year careers under their belts can still\r\nvivaciously channel the advancements they helped build as well as\r\ncompose stunning untried sounds.\r\nAlong with the recent Pain Jerk/Incapacitants split CD and the\r\nupcoming Aaron Dilloway/Carlos Giffoni split LP, Live Destruction at\r\nNo Fun 2007 manifests itself as an essential audio document of one of\r\nmany striking performances at this years festival. Often considered a\r\ngenre best experienced live, the gargantuan walls of outer-region\r\nsonics set forth by noise were aptly spawned in-the-moment and afresh\r\nby their performers, and the variety, sheer power, and unrelenting\r\nconfidence of Merzbows set in particular no doubt left longtime\r\nfollowers thoroughly fulfilled while those whove only heard the name\r\nthrown around in mythical regard were bound to have been left with a\r\nhearty appreciation of his genius.\r\n - No Fun.

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.
