2017 release. Limited to 300 copies. "When the hotel is empty before the fire alarm goes off , one could question the staff — or the band that emptied it. Cannibal like their ice - cream dark ; one of their members makes GG Allin look petite when visiting the restaurant, mixing it up with the restroom. This band is the result of a staff meeting between Detroit - based book beatnik, toy thief and original Destroy All Monsters member Cary Loren ; Paris - based, Californian visual artist and member of Gobbler Cameron Jamie; and Blankenberghe-based con-artist and footballteam manager Dennis Tyfus. This meeting resulted in several collage concerts — including a memorable gig at a wedding party where the members of Cannibal out - dressed the bride and the groom — and aprevious record on theNew York - based book/artist record publisher Primary Information. We find ourselves here, stuck at a rave where the DJ only plays slide guitar on his eye phoam, backed - up by a poet that smells as bad as I do, and a baboon attempting to erect his snake Maganga-style. Two side - long collages that drag you from the restroom to the ballroom, via the deepest armpits of the basement where The Cramps used to do their sit-ups — with their wigs on." - Ultra Eczema.
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.
