"Six of the most popular films from Uberkatze studio circa 1997-2004. The early days of Anti-Naturals cinema presented in a beautiful soft cover book which includes stills from each of the films. The films:\r\nThe Problem Of Anxiety (Timothy Shortell, Music: BRRR) - An excellent static short. Based on a text by Sigmund Freud.\r\nThe Terrible Comet Salt (Timothy Shortell, Music: Idea Fire Company and BRRR, Narration: Darren Harris) - I love all of these films, but I think this is my favourite. Comet Salt consists entirely of still photographs combined with an expressionist story by Paul Scheerbart read by Darren Harris and a pulsing hypnotic score by IFCO and BRRR. Word, image, and sound flow together perfectly, although the photographs are more of an atmospheric illustration of the story, than a dramatic representation. Perfect throughout.\r\nRight Now! (Scott Foust, Music: Tart) - Right Now! was my first film, a ten minute epic.Although it isnt really, in my mind it is the same film as my full length epic, Heres To Love!. This one holds up on its own, though.\r\nUlrich (Timothy Shortell, Music: Graham Lambkin) - One of the Doctors war trilogy. Toy soldiers and cleverly camera manipulated still photos. Disturbing soundtrack.\r\nSoon (Timothy Shortell, Music: BRRR) - A short, short film depicting the Anti-Naturals constant power struggle. Tim is the figure in black. I am in orange.\r\nRouffley (Timothy Shortell and Graham Lambkin, Music: Graham Lambkin) -Lambkin and Shortells short morality tale that has to be seen to be even imagined.\r\nAll Anti-Naturals films deny many elements of modern conventional cinema in order to create new, fresh atmospheres. I expect that when Heres To Love! is finally released in 2007, interest will grow in the whole of Anti-Naturals cinema and this will become a sought after item. Uniqueness is so rare these days. Outstanding object. - Swill Radio. Contributions from members of Shadow Ring, Idea Fire Company, Tart, etc..
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.
