"Plat Ypus have been enjoying a cult status in Finnish underground music for a couple of years. With this long-delayed 7 single, they let themselves go loose once again. And the result is, as usual, an astonishing mixture of twisted electronics and krautrock-like free-form jamming. Might be challenging to listen to, but once you get the idea, youll be rewarded. The single is housed in a folded satanic black and white sleeve, and the disc have no labels - think of self-released 7" black metal singles from the 80s. Grab a copy before its too late - limited to 100 copies worldwide." - Octane Grammophon. "Superb out there electro/percussion free-ride from a new to me Finnish duo. Its dense & loose; the electronics circle & dive while the drumming keeps a cockeyed yet steady time sorta like what you imagine No Pussyfooting mightve sounded like if a tipsy Jaki Liebezeit had invaded the sessions. Supposedly only a 100 of these worldwide. If theys got anything else available, my door is open." - Siltblog.
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.
