Hat City Intuitive have long been the mainstays of the Danbury, Connecticut free improvisation scene and, as such, are regal. Yet this crown of creative impulse and desire does not cloud their intention of celebrating the NEW. When they gather, and whoever they may invite into their high flying midst, the vibrations are a fresh fire and are wholly positive, forsaking the droll techniques of free jazz blather, and licking the under shine of night stars howling light into the black. This session has most recent member Gene Moore (guitar/reeds) showing up with his kid bro Thurston, who plugs into the nearest amp and is only too happy to just GO, as TM is a long-time fascinant of the Hat City Intuitive, having grown up in the same Nutmeg State environs just 30 some years prior. Compiled from hours and hours and hours of basement mind/spirit autumnal wine-soaked pot-smoked camaraderie, this recording is where the dirt meets the concrete and winks up to the forever sky. -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.
