MAZZACANE, LOREN & KATH BLOOM - Sing The Children Over
Warehouse find of original copies of this Mazzacane/Kath Bloom LP release from 1982. Liner notes by Nat Hentoff. Following retrospective comments by the LPs producer: "On first hearing Kath and Loren one is struck by the daring intimacy of their sound. Both on their early Daggett recordings, and live, I was moved by the rigor and bravery of the spiritual explorations they undertook in their music. While mining not unfamiliar tunes in the blues and folk idioms as well as lovely, spare originals, they, both in their own distinct ways, daringly stripped the music to some of its barest and most exquisitely aching elements. Together, they created a sound that while it echoed some of American musics oldest traditions was something resolutely new and original. After hearing Kath and Loren on their own home produced tapes, I wanted to capture some of that sublimity, that quiet intensity with more clarity. Thus inspired, my short lived label put out Sing the Children Over almost 20 years ago. I hope you agree this collection of traditional tunes and originals captures something special about American music and that it deserves a new audience." - Andy Breslau. Highly Recommended!!
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.
