大凶風呂敷 are Cammisa Buerhaus and Tamio Shirashi, a dash of twin impossibilities out of time yet essentially contemporary. They are the best new unit in lower New York City. 26 year old Buerhaus is a leader in the new wave of hand made sound. She puts a youth spin on the Broken Music approach of classically decadent avant-garde sonic events and the plastic esoterica of a figure like, say, Anne Gillis. With大凶風呂敷, she plays her self built wood organ, half part sound sculpture, half part hallucinatory drone machine. Shirashi needs no introduction; he was a central figure in the Club Minor scene in Japan, jammed in Taco and A-Musik, helped form Fushitsusha, has released various works of site specific saxophone playing. His style is some of the most atom splitting minimalism to ever locate your body in space. Thus, the sound of大凶風呂敷 is a tense drama whose nerve chilling minimalism literally encodes the space for terrifying truths to appear all around you. Theres nothing else like it right now.大凶風呂敷last year played everywhere from Bushwick rooftops with butoh dancers to Issue Project Room where Gozo Yoshimasu joined in. At the time of this writing, Keith NNCK Connolly has since joined大凶風呂敷. Edition of 50 on Cammisa Buerhaus new imprint, WILD FLESH TAPES. -Ravi Binning.
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.
