GOWN - Sacred Mountain

"We used to carry a whole line of Gown Is a Band buttons and hoodies, but we discontinued them, because they were a lie. In truth, Gown is a person. Gown is from the islands of British Columbia Canada, and spent an entire year living on one such island alone, apart from his dog and three or more goats. If rock-qua-rock and/or its sub-forms are based on blues epistemology, then Sacred Mountains is rooted in the vernacular of sea shanties, sea creatures and sea salt in general. The music swirls and eddies as water does when trapped in a cove, just before rejoining the ocean-propers massive swells and crashing onto a buncha rocks. And I guess the music is like that rejoining, too. A process such as this is a journey and far from perfect, but the missteps sparkle and gleam like the random beauty that surrounds us. The LP was recorded over the course of a month in Florence, Mass, following a two month tour across the USA, playing in a duo with Christina Carter. Gown and Christina also contributed a side the My Cat Is An Alien split LP/CD series and have a CD out on Digitalis Industries. This LP is limited to 500, all with hand painted original covers." - Ecstatic Yod.

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.
