"Two track 45 from a London duo who have been putting out a steady stream of thematic releases over the past few years. Their first tape ‘Dancehall Style’ featured them playing over loops of deconstructed Black Ark rhythms, whilst their 2016 LP ‘If You Can’t Find A Partner Use A Wooden Chair’ purported to be the first release in a rock’n’roll trilogy that as yet hasn’t been completed. Recording sessions are sporadic and completely improvised, later edited and overdubbed into songs at home. The majority of their output has come out on their own Mystery Plane imprint although they have recently released material on the Loki Label in the United States. There have also been two solo tapes covering Baron Saturday’s psych-folk excursions and Private Sorrow’s downer techno. Future plans include a double CD compilation on the New Zealand based Independent Woman Records, and a ‘live DJ mix’ recorded with the General Echo Sound System for RWDFWD.
This particular single takes a dubwise production approach to ramshackle DIY punk with delay-baked vocals and a flipside ‘version’ in classic JA 7” fashion. “Stations” is a tinny goth club stomper, moody guitar lines reverberating over a repetitive bassline. “Radio Dub” is the slow crawl of the night bus home, rain-smeared horns heralding a spoken word lament.
200 copies. Black vinyl, white cardboard sleeve with postcard attached, stamped white labels, insert. Plays at 45rpm. IDDB022." - I Dischi Del Barone.
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.
