O-TYPE - Darling

"Founded in 1986 by core MX-80 members Bruce Anderson (guitar, vocals) and Dale Sophiea (bass and drums), O-Type very quickly evolved into a four piece with the addition of drummer Marc Weinstein and guitarist Jim Hrabetin. Whereas MX-80 had been blowing minds with its incongruently massive yet intricate compositions turning corners on a dime, the power of "Darling" rose from the smoking dual guitar/ bass lines cruising over a seemingly kraut-inspired rhythm section that is typically propulsive and occasionally pummeling. Where the compositions include vocals, Anderson addresses various social concerns from the perspective of the unfortunate pickers of societys shortest sticks: mentally-challenged asthmatics, autistic stalkers, and naked, angry homeless people. The evocations are realistic enough that we recommend putting a few sheets of newspaper down on your living room before playing this record at home. For many years "Darling" was available only on cassette released on the bands Quadruped label (more recently it was made available as a CDR). It being a personal favorite, Milvia Son teamed up with Dale Sophiea and engineer Peter Conheim to prepare this re-mastered vinyl edition. 300 copies for the world in suitably lurid red silk-screened jackets (courtesy of Mr. Sherry) reproducing the original cover art, and a numbered insert." - Milvia Son.

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.
