GUERILLA TOSS/SEDIMENT CLUB - Kicked Back Into The Crypt
Although the cover makes this look like theres a goddamn Voivod reunion afoot, the sounds are a mighty pleasure to behear. This release pairs Bostons amazing quintet, Guerilla Toss, in their most explosively whacked set yet, and NYCs Sediment Club, a trio with literal blood roots in the late 70s Lower East Side grunt scene. The Guerilla Toss side is a bit less high-pitched than previous efforts, and manages to create a bizarrely shifting clot of sideways-moving aural mung that is obliteratively perfect. They craft and destroy riffs, rhythms, and melodies faster than most bands can turn on their amps. Hard to figure out what, exactly, it is theyre doing at times -- whether its part of a thought-out process or just a random jumble of found parts. But the more you listen to it, the more their music achieves a strange holism. The patterns and parts actually fit together really well. Theyre just moved around in much the same the way the early Boredoms jiggered popular logic -- with personal calculus and great power. These guys will make yr tongue bubble like a whale. Sediment Clubs side is the best evidence theyve yet produced of their wild syncretic power. Combining the rough stubbing of classic no wave aktion with the warm mud of Lower Manhattan garage-blues, theyve done everything Lydia Lunch attempted to do with the Devil Dogs. Somewhere between Mars, Rat at Rat R, and the Chrome Cranks, Sediment Club make a beautiful noise that manages to function as both anti-rock and rock-qua-rock at equally high levels. Evil-sounding beauty at its finest. Lets hope for a long tour by both of em. Edition of 600. - Feeding Tube
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.
