Some Fine Legacy

PAPIRO, MARCO - Avventure Lontane

Defying categorization, the first Papiro LP titled Avventure Londane moves into the sonic territories of New Electronics, while at the same clearly differentiating itself from these genres by its restless and disturbing mood. The music on this fascinating album has a melodic, upbeat character, harking back to analogue synthesizer days, which was extremely popular in Germany in the late 70s and early 80s. Papiros music might remind the works of Cluster or Asmus Tietchens Hematic Sunset, or even Bruce Haack, but is so original to stand on its own. Papiro plays VCS3, MS-10, Jupiter 4, String Melody, YS-100, DSR-2000, Rhythm Ace, Electronic Organ, Guitar, Shehnai and Piano. Avventure lontane means Adventures that happened far away or Long gone adventures. Both interpretations refer to the experience Papiro had almost every night as a child, when his imaginary friends popped in and took him away to whatever places they came from. Those memories helped him find a structure and surely have influenced the whole mood. Every track is built around one particular episode. Most of it took place in the dark, so please switch off the light while listening to this record. Papiro is a graphic designer, violin player, record collector and electronic music maker with a particular affinity for machines from the early days, such as the VCS3 Synthesizer. Early concerts under his own name sometimes consisted of a single chord, held for 30 minutes at high volume. In the studio, meanwhile, he enjoyed endless modular patching and the virtues of overdubbing, which resulted in the album Avventure Lontane. This rare LP is presented in a fantastic fluorescent sleeve, so all hail to the groovy glow-in-the-dark cover, which fits the music like a dream. -Some Fine Legacy/A Tree In A Field. 2006 release.

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.
