LIEBERMAN, JUSTIN & C. SPENCER YEH - Object Lessons

"Object Lessons and what of this ten-song collaboration between\r\nartist Lieberman and Yeh ? Perhaps the influenced musically discussed\r\nis somewhere starting between mutual love of various artistic and\r\nmusical genres certainly -- sound poetry, psychedelic rock, Japanese\r\nscum noise, Japanese psychedelic rock, listy lists, but certainly\r\nembodies more the present-time sensibilities and whims of both between\r\nthe two artists to combine for something perhaps neither strictly\r\nadhering to any imitation. Perhaps to this record appropriately lets\r\nstep back to New York artist Justin Liebermans 2009 sculptural and\r\nmultimedea work "The Correctors Custom Pre-Fab House" -- a\r\ndescription from the debuting gallery follows -- "The Correctors\r\nCustom Pre-Fab House is inspired by Robert Venturi and Denise\r\nScott-Browns 1972 book, Learning From Las Vegas, which provides an in\r\ndepth examination of what they call the decorated shed, a simple\r\nstructure with elaborate signage. Using the urban sprawl of Las Vegas\r\nas an example, they posit this architectural style as a means to\r\nenrich the symbolic content of post-modern architecture. The\r\nCorrectors Custom Pre-Fab House is a steel dwelling covered with a\r\nmultitude of objects including a 1970s snowmobile, a life sized Jolly\r\nGreen Giant, foam filled inflatable toys, an illuminated Fedex sign,\r\nand a 7 foot shark. Accompanying the house is a sculpture of the\r\nCorrector, a character inspired by the fictional figure, Nobusuke\r\nTagomi, from Philip K Dicks novel, The Man in the High Castle. The\r\nnovel follows Tagomi in a fictional future fifty years after Germany\r\nand Japan defeat the Allied forces in World War II. Liebermans\r\ninterpretation of Taogmi is that of an avid collector of all things\r\npop culture, whose collecting habits extend to the exterior of his\r\nhome. Within the house, there is a computer equipped with a program\r\nthat enables the Corrector to archive each object with an\r\ninformational text about the objects history, which is then projected\r\nonto the adjacent wall of the gallery. Created in the style of a\r\nKatamari video game, the program features texts on each object taking\r\nvarious forms such as objective accounts, plagiarized product\r\ndescriptions, aesthetic meditations, poetry, short fiction, satire,\r\nand prose. The program is available to play at www.thecorrector.org.\r\nThese texts were then transformed into the record, Object Lessons, a\r\nmusical collaboration between Justin Lieberman and C Spencer Yeh. The\r\nrecord is a spoken rendition of select object descriptions that were\r\nreworked into an ... musical format." Full-color gatefold jacket,\r\ndepicting abovementioned objects piled up in a grassy field, and the\r\nempty dome waiting for occupancy, and inside special ullistrations for\r\nboth ten tracks -- with fullcolor picture disc LP showing the\r\nCorrector statues head in both sketch and final form. Manufacture\r\nstopped around 250 copies." - What The..?\r\n

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.
