Trio from Sheffield, England of slide guitar/vocals, upright bass & drums. Cover art by Billy Childish. Liner notes by Mick Farren of the Deviants. Press: "Bee-stung guitar, vocals dug up in some gravel pit, Chicken Legs Weaver create some of the most feverishly destroyed RnB in recent memory.." - Byron Coley, Arthur Magzine. "The Debut Album Nowhere [produced by Johnny Dowd] has a timeless, stateless feel -- equally rendolent of dingy northern cities and the plains of middle America .. essentially, this is international blues of the very highest calibre.." - Joe Cushley, Blues Matters magazine / Ballin the Jack on Resonance FM 104.4. "Clearly the best band the UK has produced in a while.." - Thurston Moore, Sonic Youth. "Hard times, lost loves, missed connections and dangerous visions, common to all, concealed from none, but each murderously twisted to the tenor of the times. Too true to be any easy, diamond-ring tall-shucking tale - and too good to be ignored by those who know the shouts and moans - the howling of the mighty Wolf and the graveling of the exalted Captain -- and all the rest who have moved, red-eyed, in from the special places where the brain and the heart and the hand strike the ever-particular smokestack-sparks -- and the words that make strong men weep, women wail, and policeman turn in their badges. Cheap gin will make you blind, but the clear truth will never fail you. The blues will set you free....Chicken Legs Weaver play the blues -- and plays it right, right? Not a bad one in the barrel. So help me, Hannah." - Mick Farren.
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.
