"Featuring Projekt STINKA (Hana Lundiaková, Czech Republic) and Alpha Strategy (Rory Hinchey, Canada), the Muck EP split offers singular, off-kilter pop from the new projects of these two varied artists. Hana Lundiakovás graceful accordion playing and deep, unrestrained vocals in her native Czech provide the foundations for a perfectly realized pair of folk-inspired, yet pop-flavored songs. Having busied herself for over 10 years playing accordion in diverse Czech punk outfits such as Redbeard, Tři sestry, and Treněr Norủ, along with keyboards in experimental group Kaspar von Urbach, STINKA is Lundiakovás first project under her own direction. Here, she is joined by Martin Černý (Redbeard) who lends his production talents, bass and guitar work, all with a definite Morricone-esque flair. AuthorofthecriticallyacclaimedexperimentalprosecollectionVrhnout (2010), journalist, editor, mother, and visual artist, Hana Lundiaková continues forward with a chaotic production schedule. Current activities include a forthcoming body of her erotic literature, an illustrated childrens book, and further live performances in the Czech Republic and abroad. Utilizing a combination of primitive oscillating circuits, vintage synthesizers, shouted vocals, and loops lifted from 1960s schlager, Alpha Strategy delivers music which is volatile and convulsive, yet meticulously arranged.

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.
