Cien Fuegos


The Hotel Morphila Orchester was founded in 1978 by Peter Weibel (voice/lyrics) and Loys Egg (guiter/composition). In the old times in Vienna, every good hotel or coffeehouse had their own orchestra. Since this tradition is extinct today, we call ourselves after a hotel that doesnt exist either. Hotels have a good tradition in rock music: Heartbreak Hotel, Morrison Hotel, Hotel California.... The name of the hotel swings between morbid, morphium, Morpheus (god of dreams/sleep), Mephistopheles, Morphe, Godzilla and indicates the character of the hotel, the guests, the music: monster-rock by machines, music of the metropoles, neon-rock, code-breaker, clinic-music for patients of all kinds." --Peter Weibel; In his unmistakable flow of speech, where no syllable can be assured that it wont drown in the flood of words, Peter Weibel recites the sincere lyrics, pushed by a heavy beat. Peter Weibel is internationally-known for his work as an artist (conceptual, video, media), and he has worked with the Viennese Actionist group, lecturing at various universities since the 70s. Since 1999, he has been the head of the ZKM/Center For Art and Media Karlsruhe. In the 90s, Germanys Chicks On Speed had an underground hit with their cover-version of Hotel Morphila Orchesters "Sex In Der Stadt" (trans. "Sex In The City"). Their only full-length album Schwarze Energie from 1982 is an international collectors item; the re-issue was remastered from the original tapes and pressed to 180 gram vinyl. Includes lyric sheet." -Cien Fuegos.

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.
