"Sommor Records present the first ever vinyl reissue of Plebb's Yes It Isn't It, a Swedish private press record originally released in 1979. Heavy twin-guitar fueled underground hard-rock with prog/psych touches. Plebb was founded in 1976 in the small town of Mönsterås (Sweden). The band name was based on the initials of the first band members names. The "P" for "Pemce". "LeB" for "Leif Bergqvist" and the last "b" for "Balder". They were just teenagers (16-18 years old) and in 1977 guitar player Leif Bergqvist was replaced by Peter Martinsson and then the band started to develop their sound and began to write their own songs influenced by their favorite musicians. After recording a private cassette, the band decided to make their first album. So, in 1979, they recorded Yes It Isn't It with almost no budget at a makeshift studio using two locations: the attic of a local biker club and a school. It was produced by bass player Tommy Gustavsson and only 485 copies were pressed on the band's own label, Plebb Records, sold mainly locally to friends but also in some shops in consignment. Highly sought-after by collectors of '70s hard-rock and proto-metal. Master tape sound. Heavy cardboard sleeve; insert with rare photos, lyrics and liner notes." - Sommor Records.
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.
