Second in the enka collection series on An Archives after Jojo Hiroshige & Shiraishi Tamio. -ɂǨ Qui Avec Gabriel is an accordion player based in Tokyo who opened her discography with Utsuho on John Zorns label Tzadik in 2001 (featuring Haino Keiji as a guest musician). Since she has collaborated with Makoto Kawabata, Majutsu No Niwa, Mico to name a few. Her stylistic palette is eclectic, drawing on shades of jaunty european folk music, the elegant minimalism of Erik Satie, and uniquely lighthearted melancholia.Here for the first time on record she left her accordion Gabriel for a piano and a seat and proves shes found her own voice as an expressive singer. The other side features Tori Kudo (Maher Shalal Hash Baz and Noise with his wife Reiko Kudo) who has a revered status in the Japanese underground since the late 70s (Taco, Guys N Dolls, Fushitsusha-¢‚Ǩ¬¶) but this time he brings listeners into the heart of an amazing and feverish karaoke house with his friends . For those who didnt know it before, maybe for the very first time they are going to discover Tori Kudo as an inimitable & unforgettable crooner, as a true lover of popular songs.-¢‚Ǩ¬ù - An Archives.
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.
