Old Gold

YXIMALLOO - Fangs Of Lucifer

"A surprising and well deserved reissue of 1981-86 era tracks by Naofumi Ishimarus project of 20 + years. Imagine a cross between prime Half Jap (Jad Fair even supplied the cover art to some of his tapes from the early 80s) with the some of the more electronic LAFMS projects and youll get the gist. Beautifully packaged as well.\r\n"Naofumi Iziwaru was another one of the first to respond to Old Golds formative request for musical submissions. With dozens of releases under the name Yximalloo dating back to the 1970s, Nao had put a transdimensional dent in the cassette underground and his collaborations with Jad Fair raised more than a few wooly eyebrows. He sent us numerous tapes and they put us on the floor in a puddle of our own souls crying out for more, rethinking our own music making, and asking to please - please! - let us re-release his music. This resulted in five tapes of our own hand-picked smorgasbord, resequenced at his request. When he began making CDs, we tackled the daunting challenge of compiling about 40 minutes worth of his best music from digital and analog to marry on clear vinyl. It took several years, a lot of late nights, and handfuls of reverse/fast forward, but in the end, we were happy, Nao was happy, and now you can be happy, too dammit. Electronic clank, off kilter funk, galactic babble, pre-historic riddims, utterly melodic snatches of techno wizardry are here set forth. Most were sold in Europe; grab what few are left from Fusetron. Comes in clear bag with clear inserts with track listing, musician credits (no small feat that!), and instructions for a performance piece called Fangs of Lucifer which we dare you to try, but not unsupervised." - Old Gold. "Its dada and Romper Room, punk and situationist, naive art and sophistry. Eccentricity is just the beginning." - Thomas Peake.

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.
