POOR SCHOOL - The Holy Master

"POOR SCHOOL started in April 2005 with Bryan Ramirez (gtr), John Niekrasz (drms) and\r\nNathan Hoyme (sax). We first caught wind of this sick noise/jazz/postpunk rock trio when\r\nJohn Olson brought Ramirez other combo Ex-Cocaine (who have a sick new LP on\r\nSiltbreeze out NOW) to the No Fun basement a few years back and Ramirez laid some\r\nPOOR SCHOOL cdr action on us. Needless to say we were buh-lown away by the manic\r\nimprov hepness and immediately emailed the dude to see if we could slam some POOR\r\nSCHOOL magic onto black plastik. And unto Ecstatic Peace was delivered The Holy Master.\r\nRamirez and Olson go waay back when the two of them jammed together in the nascent\r\nMichigan underground psychedelic troupe Universal Indians. Ramirez took off to Missoula,\r\nMontana to investigate micro-brews and mountain air and help put together the awesome\r\nEx-Cocaine. Hes still there. Niekrasz went to get high on life in India but is expected back\r\nsooner than later. Upon his return we can hopefully expect POOR SCHOOL to shed new\r\nlove and light and chaos for the future.-Ecstatic Peace

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.
