"Experimental artist Suzy Poling birthed Pod Blotz in 2002. Polings sound is an interesting cauldron of tape manipulation, organ drones, melodies, electo-acoustic sounds, synthesizers and voice. Pod Blotz is a solo project that is derived from conceptual artistic endeavors and sonic explorations relating to Science Fiction, phenomenon and material reactions. She is interested in the regeneration within materials and sound. She works with photography, video, film, broken glass, multidimensional lenses, chemistry and sound to celebrate and elaborate the phenomenon and permanence. Suzy is based in Oakland and represented by the Zg Gallery in Chicago. Mark Lord is the solo moniker of artist Christopher Forgues. Forgues goes by C.F. in the art world. His graphic novel series, Powr Mastrs, is published by the Grammy Award winning Picturebox, Inc. His story "Mosfet Warlock and the Mechlin Men" was included in The Best American Comics 2009 edited by Charles Burns. Since May 2011, he has published a monthly comic strip "Monorail High" in Mothers News, a monthly newspaper in Providence, RI. His work has been included in the Kramers Ergot anthology series and the French graphic zine Nazi Knife." - Scumbag Relations.
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.
