Vinyl actualization of a Gary Wilson album originally released on CD in 2008. The second of Feeding Tubes Wilson retrievals (following 2011s Forgotten Lovers, FTR 065LP), the label considers this the most solid of Garys post-revival albums. While it goes in a slightly different musical direction than the deranged porn-lounge inventions of You Think You Really Know Me (the classic 77 LP, heisted in toto by Beck during his Odelay phase), the naif-ache of the lyrics and the musics laid-back bowling-alley-funk-thrust reveal unending vistas of pure pleasure. Wilsons vision and performance approach are absolutely personal and shockingly naked. Like other true outsider artists (from the Shaggs to Daniel Johnston), its possible to sometimes wonder what the hell Gary is up to, but the raw sincerity of his yearning is never at doubt. As with all his best work, Lisa Wants to Talk to You is about women. How they walk, how they sound, how they smell, how they can break your goddamn heart. A fellow and/or a gal could learn a lot by dancing quietly alone in the dark to this record. Saved from the digital graveyard by your friends at Feeding Tube, its time to prepare yourself for another small miracle. So do it. Limited edition of 500, with a dazzling cover by Ted Lee. Includes mp3 download code. -Feeding Tube.
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.
