Ever/Never

SCUPPER - Everything

-¢‚Ǩ-ìLike the millennial squishing of dumb rock into diamonds that eventually adorn dames fingers, its the geezers-¢‚Ǩ‚Äùintimate with dreams crushed by the hard knox of indifference-¢‚Ǩ‚Äùwhore truly capable of squeezing out acerbic pop gems that burn hot. They know. SCUPPERs MIKE JANSON licked gold encrusted sushi bowls with the darlings of alt rock supremacy during his time with LYNNFIELD PIONEERS. They issued two weirdly great long players on Matador in the mid 90s, only to have their ruins smote upon the mountainside of pop culture refuse. No less an aficionado of such things as Aging Baldini at Fuckin Record Reviews hailed Janson as "the Goffin/King of basement power bomp." Jansons since fleshed out his new blood vision with bassist ANDREW SHUMWAY (defected from the Jersey City suburban basement Lizzy/Priest smoke out collective A-åÀÜSS, where he traded u-åÀÜmlauty riffs with The Mad Scenes Brian Turner and former Crucifucks drummer Steve Shelley) and drummer RICHARD AMARI, who brings a level of combustible professionalism with which indie rockers are too often unfamiliar. Together, theyre as sharp and tight as a giant burning orb stuffed inside the velvet balcony at Radio City.
Based on the youthful energy bouncing off all corners of -¢‚Ǩ-ìEverything,-¢‚Ǩ¬ù Scupper havent lost a step in the downtime. Both -¢‚Ǩ-ìEverything-¢‚Ǩ¬ù and its flip, -¢‚Ǩ-ìDrown Me Out,-¢‚Ǩ¬ù nail the kind of surging, harmony-laden melodic punk that Superchunk used to specialize in. But Scuppers newest single is no mere nostalgia trip-¢‚Ǩ‚Äùthese songs are flesh and blood and standing right in front of you.-¢‚Ǩ¬ù- Ever/Never.
Includes unlimited streaming of Everything via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

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.
