"Spittle Records present a reissue of Kina's Cercando, originally released in 1986. One year after the release of Kina's first album, Irreale Realtà (SPITTLE 085LP), which was a good proof of the Italian hardcore scene vitality and a confirmation that Kina was definitely one of the most original and creative bands on the European scene, even though 1986 was a transition year. Punk began to lose its energy and while many of the bands from the first wave were gone, Kina decided to work on their second album, and for this they chose a studio owned by a former Hippy' in Aosta. They entered the studio with very clear ideas: Velocity? yes! just a little bit less than before; Melody? yes, and in this case a little more than before; Solos? Sure! and wild too; Short songs? Of course, even if now they feel like trying something different as well. After one month of studio work, they finally got a concise and intense album. Some kind of raw and rusty thing coming from big and extremely loud amps. The new path seems to allow the band to explore new sound territories where a new kind of melodic lines mix up with past experiences and new genres, metal included. It's a sad and dark sounding album including songs which would become classics in the band's repertoire. The front cover has a very strong image, an airbrush, retouched picture by Salvatore Cosentino of an angry homeless person who almost seems coming out of the cover. In 1986, Kina consisted of: Sergio Milani - drums, vocals; Alberto Ventrella - guitar, voice; Gianpiero Capra- bass, vocals." - Spittle.
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.
