INFINITE LIVEZ - Glockenbackwerkstatt

Infinite Livez (born 1972 in Bethnal Green, East London) is an MC and musician who studied at Chelsea Art College. His wide range of influences comes from such diverse sources as P-Funk, Surrealism and continental philosophy. His first album Bush Meat was released on Big Dada Records in 2004 to immediate critical acclaim in the UK and abroad. 2007 saw the release of his second album Art Brut fe de Yoot, also on Big Dada, and a collaborative project with the Swiss electro-jazz outfit, Stade. Recorded over a series of improvised sessions, it has been recognized as a unique achievement in both experimental hip-hop and wacky humor. The follow-up album to Art Brut fe de Yoot, entitled Morgan Freemans Psychedelic Semen, was released in 2008. At the beginning of 2009, the live album Live at La Guinguette, again recorded with Stade and guest vocalist Joy Frempong, came out of a residency in Geneva. Infinite Livez has performed in the UK and all over Europe, including events such as Montreux Jazz, the North Sea Jazz Festival and The Sonar Festival. Besides Stade and Joy Frempong, Infinite has worked with a wide range of other producers and musicians including David Murray, Jahcoozi, Nils Petter Molvar, Elliott Sharp and Kid Acne. He has supported artists such as Kool Keith, Anti Pop Consortium, MF Doom and Mulatu Astatke. As a visual artist, Infinite Livez has also worked on a variety of other projects, like making comic books, animations, prints and illustrations (for magazines such as Hip Hop Connection and The Wire). In July 2009, Infinite had his first solo exhibition, Salvador Dali Was Half Bengali at Pebbledash Gallery in London where he presented a series of madly surrealist silkscreens referencing the aesthetics of old-school comics, Japanese woodcuts and Hans Bellmer. In September 2009, he took part in the group show 7 Styles for 7 Brothers at Archipelago Art, Sheffield. Recently, Infinite launched Glorious Mono, his own weekly 1 hour radio show on Herbstradio 99.1 FM in Berlin. -The Tapeworm.

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.
