"Members of THE INTELLIGENCE, recorded by CHRIS WOODHOUSE of MAYYORS\r\nThe gaucherie that is How to Plan Successful Parties relies not on squishy sentiments, fist-pumping party anthems, nor smoke and mirror tricks to project it?s message and the reason for this is that Successful Parties has no message. In fact, you will find not a single set of instructions for arranging celebrations successful or otherwise so don?t even look. Written democratically and without a dictionary by Emphysema, Ricketts, and Cirrhosis (all, it should be said, past and present members of other similarly bombastic and trashy musical outfits such as the A-Frames, the Intelligence, and Double Fudge) and recorded by Sacramento?s stun-gun toting boy genius, Chris Woodhouse, these seven songs ooze sexy mashed potato slush laced with shrapnel and unicorn horns. Put these songs on after polishing off a box of bargain basement macaroni and cheese and see if you don?t have to fight the urge to run a nice lukewarm bath and set that bitch on repeat". -Omnibus
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.
