Olde English Spelling Bee

D.A. - Odeon

Debut album by sci-fi oriented vintage synth duo who recently relocated to Los Angeles from Texas. Very outsider in that they were completely unaware of the current synth revival going on in the American underground (Emeralds, OPN, Caboladies, et al). D.A. began recording after being commissioned to make soundtracks for floatation tanks at a new age center in Texas. A chance meeting at a cafe led to the duo handing dozens of hours of these sessions to OESB. This album features some standouts from those early recordings. Their time in Los Angeles has been highlighted by a series of private rooftop concerts that overlook training grounds for the L.A.P.D. riot squads - the scrambling helicopters and practice gun battles below adding to the sinister dystopian vibe of their compositions. Limited numbered run of 400 copies, silkscreened by Monoroid on heavy duty chipboard jackets. - OESB.

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.
