Veterans of the UK lo-fi underground Inca Eyeball present their first new LP since 1999. The duo of Phil Todd (Ashtray Navigations, Dogliveroil) and Joincey (Wagstaff, Coits) released tons of classic cassettes in the 1990s on labels such as EF Tapes, Fusetron, Union Pole, Giardia, and Todd_¢‚Ǩ‚Ѣs own Betley Welcomes Careful Drivers imprint, in addition to a handful of vinyl releases and an unforgettable 99 track CD released on Spirit of Orr. Notorious for their incredibly short _¢‚Ǩ_ìsongs_¢‚Ǩ¬ù (typically 2-30 seconds of improvised instrumentation on cheap and broken instruments over bizarre decontextualized rants) with verbose and frequently idiotic titles, the duo quickly garnered a following within the experimental tape underground of the 1990s. Pretend there was no 1999-2014 and enjoy this new LP featuring 83 tracks (all individually banded) of classic, poorly recorded Inca ineptitude. - Spleencoffin.\r\n
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.
