2008 reissue. "Initially released privately by the group in 1993 (prior to Rinjis formation of his Pataphysique imprint, which would release the rest of the groups output in addition to many other interesting recordings), this LP was limited to just 200 copies and has long been sought-after by aficionados of the Japanese underground. Needless to say, until now, if one were to be lucky enough to find a copy of this LP, it would come with a somewhat prohibitive price tag; we offer it once again in the vinyl format with its original presentation for those of us for whom the depth of our fanaticism may not always equal that of our bank accounts. This LP shows the groups long-standing interest in the avant-garde and improvisation, featuring some amazing soundscapes which find their way through both the beautiful and the abrasive; they definitely explore some far-out territory, but there are also glimpses into the beautiful saturation of their more "rock" side on occasion, with some particularly expressionistic guitar work from Rinji within the context of a slow-burning psych blowout. This LP features the initial lineup of Rinji Fukuoka (guitar, voice), Iwao Yamazaki (drums), Kouji Nishino (bass) and Kunukunu as guest on VCS3 synthesizer during the track "Air." \r\n[...] This vinyl reissue is limited to 500 copies and it is presented with its original artwork which features a stark plain white jacket with Overhang Party simply printed on the front.

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.
