BROTZMANN, PETER & SONNY SHARROCK - Whatthefuckdoyouwant
There is only one prior release existing of Brötzmann and Sharrock as a duo (vinyl-only on Okka Disc 2003). This live recording from the archives of Peter Brötzmann was mixed by Lou Malozzi in Chicago, mastered by Martin Siewert in Vienna. Sonny Sharrock was one of the first American free-jazz guitarists. He played in the 60s with Miles Davis, Pharoah Sanders, Roy Ayers and many other greats. His career started again in the beginning of the 80s when he met Bill Laswell, who hired him to form the free-rock-jazz-noise quartet Last Exit (with Ronald Shannon Jackson and Peter Brötzmann) between 1986 and 1990. German legend Peter Brötzmann is one of the most outstanding saxophone players in the current international free-jazz scene, continuing to go on tour and release with various musicians. Recorded on March 9, 1987 at Jamkulturfabrik in Esch/Alzette, Luxembourg. Drawing and artwork by Brötzmann. Design: Brötzm/Untiet. Peter Brötzmann (alto/tenor/bass-saxophone, tarogato); Sonny Sharrock (electric guitar). - Trost.
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.
