RAINFOREST SPIRITUAL ENSLAVEMENT - Taking Place In The Foyer

Taking Place In The Foyer was originally released in a run of just 14 copies on double-tape back in 2012 and is now available on vinyl for the first time as part of the ongoing Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement reissue series. The newly remastered, first and last ever vinyl cut of Taking Place In The Foyer forms the penultimate instalment in Rainforest Spiritual Enslavements necessary reissue scheme. Originally appearing second in the series, it then served to only heighten the enigma of a project which was, as yet, undisclosed as the work of Dominick Fernow, whos maybe best known for his transgressive Prurient output, and the Muslimgauze-inspired rhythmic reportage of Vatican Shadow, as well as overseeing the ever Hospital Productions imprint. On its original release, each of RSEs hand-duplicated and super limited tape editions were rabidly devoured by Hospital Productions disciples with little or no firm knowledge of the projects provenance, this one included. Understandably they became coveted items for hardcore disciples and new admissions to the labels occult mass alike, often fetching multiples of the original retail price on the second hand market. Taking Place In The Foyer is among the most cherished of the early RSE instalments. Following and diverging his unheimlich path, these four tracks find Fernow broadening his temporal scope and entrenching the spirits farther from home, covering bleaker terrain with the trudging momentum and shuddering conclusion of "Spot A Witch By Changes In The Persons Behavior", whereas "In New Guinea Police Dont Have The Petrol Money To Search For The Witch Murderers" locates him toiling aleatoric at some dank workshop, and the unanswered CB radio crackle of "Bodies Of Suspected Witches Are Dumped In The River Or Buried In Toilet Pits" sets up the petrifying closing scene of "Sorcery Killings". RSE can be taken as a minimal, supernatural-focused adjunct to Vatican Shadows war commentary, invoking a more abstract, visceral and haptic sound, leaving us stranded in a tropical-rain streaked AR soundscape. RIYL: Coil, Demdike Stare, Prurient, Brian Eno / Jon Hassells Fourth World (1980). Remastered by Paul Corley; Cut at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. Edition of 500. - Hospital Productions.

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.
