"Second album by cult Norwegian heavy prog-psych band Lucifer Was, originally released only on CD in 2000. Epic and doomy atmosphere in the best early '70s tradition with great use of Mellotron, flute, killer hard guitar -- imagine a mix between Black Sabbath and Jethro Tull with a dose of King Crimson and Black Widow. In Anadi's Bower was the follow up to Underground And Beyond (SOMM 055CD/LP) and featured new singer Jon Rude. The band's idea was to make another Underground And Beyond, to record more of the band's 1970-1973 material fast and rough. But this time they chose to use a producer, Rolf Kjernet, and they also had a bigger budget and more studio time. All the basic tracks of guitar, bass and drums plus guide-vocals were recorded live in the studio on analog equipment. Just like before on Underground And Beyond. Even the 11 minutes 'Little Child' does not have one single edit of the basic tracks we recorded live-in-the-studio. "We were completely into making it good and really enjoying ourselves in one go. Still, it was also an escape. There were some greening of the grass and auras of the trees seen in the dim light of midnight. Outside. May 'Darkness' bless the child that takes no more and let it play in Anadis's bower. In Norway, maybe... --Thore Engen (Lucifer Was) Includes insert with liner notes and photos; also includes download card of the full album plus two bonus tracks: 'Kill The Rats' and 'Legends Waiting (To Appear)'." - Sommor Records.
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.
