NATIVE HIPSTERS - There Goes Concorde Again..

There Goes Concorde Again is accurately described by the Native Hipsters head honcho William Wilding as a collection of stuff (music/noises/words), recorded with various people at various times between 1979 and 2001". A bona fide lo-fi, punk-rock, cottage-industry product it was recorded in a living room and released on the Native Hipsters own label. Five hundred 7" singles were printed up (in 1980) with the band rubber-stamping each label individually and Blue Petering the covers by cutting up humungous hoarding posters of Kevin Keegan. If you think thats bizarre, wait until you hear the record itself. Fundamentally, it consists of female vocalist (in the loosest sense) Blatt, vacantly intoning a mundane monologue, "Outside fat woman struggle up the hill", accompanied by banana-finger bass plodding and random shards of noise. Apparently, the idea was that the guitars sounded like chickens pecking up grain. Hmm. The overall vibe is of The Fall soundtracking a surreal kitchen-sink drama co-starring Salvador Dali and Rita Tushingham. Yes, that blimmin marvellous. The fact that there are another 16 similarly bonkers tracks means that There Goes Concorde Again is pure genius." - Chris King. The Native Hipsters were included on the first Instant Pop Classics LP.

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.
