"First vinyl reissue of this Swedish psych treasure. Captured on tape with two microphones deep down in a basement in the university town of Lund, the eight songs that make up Tramseb_ɬ_x are full of crude DIY-charm. The album was privately released on Chockskivor in 1976 on a couple of hundred copies and has become a collectors item ever since, on occasion demanding up to $1000. Listening to it, its easy to understand why those who have heard it love it so much. Although the band sound very young and inexperienced, somehow they manage to create an eerie atmosphere that works really well. The best tracks on this largely instrumental LP are downer psychedelia with jammy parts and some progressive moves added for good measure. The live recording - with vocals added afterwards in a professional studio - fits the vibes perfectly and only enhances the experience. While Tramseb_ɬ_x is difficult to compare to other albums, most people will hear traces of Swedish, American and German underground rock. The bastard child of Tr_ɬ§d, Gr_ɬ§s och Stenar, Bent Wind and Grave? Limited to 350 copies, remastered from the original tapes for ultimate clarity, infosheet with photos from the bands archive and liner notes by Patrick Lundborg._¢‚Ǩ¬ù - Papaaver.
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.
