PUTAS BEBADAS - Orgulho de Ex-Buds



“Four years after the opus Jovem Excelso Happy (heralded as instant classic by certified sommeliers such as Julian Cope, Doug Mosurock or Brian Turner), sparse intense live shows, and studio mishappenings, the hung torchbearers of the new stretchings of the rock spectre are back. Forged in Lisbon over three years, “Orgulho de Ex-Buds” explodes in minty tones of will, pride, and craftsmanship, and presents the listeners with a clear picture of the forces that need be, righting the wrongs of the 00’s, and thrusting ahead, as a glorious flare shot into the dark sky. 

While there is a sense of familiarity throughout the record, it is so in a pynchonesque flair. Going from Chrome to Crom, and speeding through Sightings’ and Brainbombs’ lawns while chanting melodies that could equally have been drawn from the portuguese punk/hardcore songbook or atlantan mixtapes (without forgetting their own Cafetra Records’ archetypal lyrism), keeping it fresh all along. Bubblegum auto-tuned voices riding ferocious waves of snare-cymbal insanity, guitars building walls and tearing them down, and basslines that know exactly where they’re going. All of this while keeping the previous record’s tradition on telling sweet, boozy, and sour tales, sometimes hopeful, sometimes hopeless. 

The vocals now occupy a more central role; each lyrics’ metres melting twisted organic rhythm into the sauce. While on surface the themes and mannerisms might remind those of Råberg, Lifeless or even Putnam traditions, Orgulho de Ex-Buds is closer to Portuguese literary mavericks Luiz Pacheco or Alberto Pimenta, with a generous dose of confident control poured over the wit and lasciviousness, with a humanist (!) background. 

The whole album is action-packed, fast, and liberating, with song highlights all through: the scorching album opener “Geme” (moan) setting the tone; the brain dancing non-pc anabolic tale “Proteina” (protein); the gratifying tempo structure of “Gorduchinha” (fatty); the anthem “Fada deste lar” (this home’s fairy) with one of the catchiest intros on this side of the noise x rock intersection (“cona e cu aberto/é corrente de ar/tira a cuequinha/deixa a peida a refrescar” | “open ass and cunt/it’s a breeze/take of your panties/let the booty cool down”); the jewels robber love chants in “Joia” (jewel); the ode to Lisbon’s lost and found oasis “Cruzeiro de Velhos” (a cruise for elders); the mesmerizing gynecological existentialism of “Cona da Mãe” (Mothers Cunt); and the finale where ethylic oneness with the universe’s riddles and gifts wraps thing up, “Camões”. Fundamental.” - 8MM.

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.
