Silk Flowers

SILK FLOWERS - September 2008-September 2009

"Silk Flowers began in Autumn, 2008, bringing together Peter and Aviram of Soiled Mattress and the Springs and Ethan of Car Clutch. During their first year, the band released 2 7s, an LP on Post Present Medium, a 12" EP on Captured Tracks, and played over 50 shows. For many of these shows, in collaboration with designer Jamil Azim, Aviram created posters; colorful, spooky, unique posters. This full color, 8 1/2" x 11" zine presents the first year of these posters, each reproduced on its own page. In addition, the zine includes an original, 11" x 17" poster from Silk Flowers west coast tour. The accompanying cassette presents exclusive recordings from this first year. The A side presents the full recording of Silk Flowers record release show, from July 2009, recorded professionally by Dan Hewitt. The B side is a 22 minute motorik collage, carefully culled from the bands massive library of practice space recordings. Edited together into a seamless whole, these snippets are transformed from nascent song ideas to a cohesive, hypnotic whole. Edition of 100." - Silk Flowers.

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.
