"Reissue, originally released in 2005. First time available on vinyl for 15 years. New sleeve artwork with photos by Steve Gullick and pressed on dirty white vinyl. Ladybird... one perfect heavy as fuck hypnotic riff played over and over and over and over across two sides of an LP. Back when Shit And Shine formed, the idea was basically to sound like their heroes Drunks With Guns and Strangulated Beatoffs, using that same basic formula. A big dumb ass catchy riff played over and over until the joke gets old... then keep going. Recorded live at Southern Studios, London (fun fact: the same room where Bauhaus recorded "Bela Lugosi's Dead") in 2004 with just two basses, a snare drum, a huge cardboard box and a tiny toy Casio SA-1 keyboard (using the "airplane" sound hitting the same key over and over for 41 minutes). Some still say it's the best thing Shit And Shine has ever done. No argument there. Originally released on CD, and super limited vinyl. This was Shit And Shine's second release and it sold out quick. Remastered and beefed the hell up by Craig Clouse at Shit And Shine Ranch, 2022. Don't sleep on it. Edition of 300." - Riot Season .
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.
