On his Summer Flexi, GRIFFIN PYN (aka SEWN LEATHER) declares war! He sounds pretty fuckin serious too. He aint rappin on Unclear War", but this is some of the gnarliest booty shakin hardcore Ive heard since the first Death Grips LP. Post-industrial juke core, anyone? Anyone! Pyn drops the mic for the second cut in favor of sampling / chopping / screwing / etc. Subsonic throb, synth blasts, noise fuckery, and delayed beyond recognition samples comprise 120 lessons in Strinth. I dont know shit about The Nation Of Gods and Earths Book of Knowledge, but thanks to one of the barely audible samples, I now know that A set of 120 shouldnt be online...You need an enlightener to teach you 120 lessons...Thats a fact! WTF? Maybe Griffin is our enlightener. Thanks to a quick Wiki search, I also found out that the Nation of Gods and Earths (aka Five Percenters) coined the terms sup, G? (originally G means God, not gangsta), Word is bond, Break it down, and droppin science. Damn. Hows that for a weird history lesson? I can get down with that kind of language and, furthermore, I can get down with anybody who samples Five Percenters from Youtube. BTW, SICK artwork by Eighty-five Percenter OTTO SPLOTCH, Sewn Leather is droppin science. Are you picking it up? I am." -Lance, Permanent Records. Numbered edition of 250 copies.
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.
