PIO, GIUSTO - Motore Immobile

-¢‚Ǩ-ì2007 reissue; originally released in 1979. Giusto Pio is an associate ofBattiatos and Motore Immobile is his debut LP. On the first side, he uses a droning organ and moves from triad to triad, superimposing the next one briefly before moving on, occasionally expanding the sound with octave doubling and then just as quickly subtracting the lower tones. Intermittent humming and violin provide additional notes. On the second side, "Ananta," he uses a piano flourish to introduce each triad, landing on the tonic note each time.-¢‚Ǩ¬ù - Cramps. "Gusto Pio was the chief arranger for Italian progressive pop icon Franco Battiato during the decade, and filled his striking albums with avant-garde details. In return, Battiato himself produced this collection of modern compositions, and his ear for the extraordinary laces these two long suits. A composition for organ and violin sets the tone, which is purely avant-garde composition, and features the voice of singer Martin Kleist. The effect is a powerful study of experimental narrative, while the later piece of the two, composed for piano, organ, and violin, features the composer on violin with Danilo Lorenzini and Michele Fedrigottis subtle accompaniment. This reissue should fill an important gap in 70s Italian music somewhere between progressive rock and avant-garde composition." - AllMusic.

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.
