"Spittle present a reissue of Windopen's Rock!, originally issued in 1979. Windopen were a proudly underground band from Bologna. Active between the '70s and the '80s, they only recorded a cassette (the original presentation of this music) on Harpo's Music and a single, Sei In Banana Dura (1980) for Cramps Records. At the exact edge between masterpiece and madness, here is the first-ever vinyl reissue of that original cassette, released on 1979 plus two unreleased tracks and tracks from Sei In Banana Dura. A classic item from the golden era of Italian New Wave, this music is the perfect mixture of punk spirit, urban slang lyrics and pure nonsense. "Sei In Banana Dura" was a really big underground hit! In the 1990s, band member Roberto Terzani took Giovanni Maroccolo's place in Litfiba and eventually he followed Piero Pelù in his solo career." - Spittle.
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.
