United Fairy Moons

SINKING INFINITIES - Thousand-Year Reich

As we now know via Mr Conrad, Mr Cale, Mr Licht and the reissue programs of the world, minimalism in its infancy had a high birth weight and screamed for its fucking dinner. No gentle whisps of wind, this, but a blunt seismic shudder that was felt around the world in countless forms but sharing at its heart a primitive, immersive love of volume, stasis and the riff that stops time. So enters this tribute of sorts from the duo of Jon Chapman (ex-DOUBLE LEOPARDS; Rory Storm & The Invaders) and Jim Currin (ex-Three Forks; Ray Off) who, without thinking about it too much, or hardly at all in fact, take some of the moves inherent in the evolution of minimal thought such as those that may be seen in the still-ongoing career of one Steve Reich and use them as a takeoff point for a blitz of soaring drone, clutzy phasing tableaus, and chronic, chronic noise, always with an ear open for those strange cross-rhythmed universes that have melted hearts ever since he first came out to show them. Somewhat indicative of the madness that enveloped the pair on their recent Australian tour, this follows on from the icy electric floatings of their debut Forever Young, and will be bookended later this year by the natural follow-up, The Life Of Riley - United Fairy Moons.

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.
