"Since 2004 we organize the Hex nights at OCCII in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. At these nights the audience is being served all (sub)styles of new wave music from the past and the present... and more... The nights are known for their ever suprising live acts (and not only because of the fact that most of these bands have their live debut in The Netherlands at Hex) and the dj sets by connoisseurs dj M & Kramp...\r\nAlthough Hex is a relative small clubnight it has built a name for itself around the world among fans of obscure new wave music and many bands and specialized labels. To celebrate the existence of Hex there is now a compilation LP... so everybody can have a Hex night at home...\r\nOn the LP are twelve bands that all performed live on stage at Hex. Ten out of the twelve tracks are exclusive recorded for this LP (and the other two are absolute hits on the Hex dancefloor). What you get is what we do... it is all there... from apocalyptic disco to post-punk, from elektro to Neo Deutsche Welle and from minimal electronics to cabaret ...\r\nThe artwork is of course done by Dutch artist Edwin Stoutjesdijk (also known as dj Kramp)... - Hex Grammofoonplaten. Hex Grammofoonplaten is new side-imprint from Dutch synth label Enfant Terrible.\r\nArtists include Vanishing, Frustration, Sixteens, Swann Danger, Saralunden, Cheveu, Laurence Wasser, Wermut, Kania Tieffer, Agent Side Grinder, Hval Mus, Punk Soul Loving Bill.
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.
