MARTIN, ANDREAS & CHRISTOPH HEEMANN - Lebenserinnerungen Eines Lepidopterologen
"2010 expanded reissue of the 1999 compilation Lebenserinnerungen Eines Lepidopterologen ("Memoirs of a Lepidopterist"), collecting the collaborative and early solo works of Andreas Martin and Christoph Heemann as an extensive two-CD retrospective. Moving between minimalist guitar compositions, tape-music narratives, and an array of cascading electronics, each of Martin and Heemann's solo recordings blends seamlessly within the milieu of their collaborative work. While one can hear how this forged the groundwork for much of the late-period H.N.A.S. material, the work here took the vision further, and helped shape a path toward their respective solo endeavors. Included are compositions from their first solo releases, Martin's Doppelpunkt Vor Ort (1993) and Heemann's Über den Umgang mit Umgebung und Andere Versuche (1991), each originally released in a limited 10" edition. Also featured is a prime selection of previously unreleased material, obscure 7" tracks, and their collaborative opus from the H.N.A.S. Ach, Dieser Bart! LP (1988). This deluxe set includes two additional tracks not included on the 1999 edition and features fully restored visuals. Packaged in a beautiful mini-LP gatefold jacket with an updated four-page booklet. Over 100 minutes of music covering the years 1987-2000. Remastered sound." - Robot.
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.
