"For the last decade and a half, Bloodloss has existed spasmodically in Seattle with a line-up that grew to include Mudhoney's Mark Arm and Guy Madison. During this period, they released two albums on Reprise and Sympathy For The Record Industry and a number of 7"s and EPs. Formed in Sydney in 1983 by Adelaide ex-pats, Renestair EJ and Martin Bland, Bloodloss existed fitfully Downunder until 1991 when both Ren and Martin emigrated to the USA as members of Stu Spasm's Lubricated Goat. This retrospective is culled from recordings made in Australia between 1983 and 1991 when the band existed alongside better-known contemporaries like the Beasts Of Bourbon, feedtime, Scientists and King Snake Roost. Disc one features the entire, superb The Truth Is Marching In album (1990), along with the best tracks from their final, (and never released) Australian recorded album, The Hair Of The Future, from 1991. Disc two collects the best songs from their self-titled cassette-only album (1986), Human Skin Suit LP (1987), and unheard rehearsal tapes and recording sessions. Includes a 16-page booklet with extensive liner notes by Harry Butler (DNA fanzine). All Music Guide describes Bloodloss' music as "Blues/Vegas/Punk craziness" and over 27 sporadic years, the band's chaotic and pulsating jazz-influenced punk rock has won them many fans. This collection shows where it all began for a band that was always more than just a Mudhoney side project." - Memorandum .
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.
