VAINICA DOBLE - S/T (Clear Vinyl)

"Vinilisssimo present a reissue of Vainica Doble's self-titled debut album, originally released in 1971. It can be argued that Serge Gainsbourg was a typically French artist, although his music was so personal that it would be difficult to find another similar artist in France at the time. The same could be said about Vainica Doble. They were a duo with a distinctly Spanish edge, although it is almost impossible to establish parallels between them and any other Spanish music released during the years they were active. Gloria Van Aerssen and Carmen Santonja were truly unique and their mix of folk, traditional genres and psych rock is a landmark in Spanish pop. Vainica Doble is their impossible-to-find first album, which despite extremely low sales -- it is said that the majority of the copies were destroyed by one of the investors in the Ópalo label after shipping them to Argentina -- has been highly influential for generations of pop musicians in Spain and a holy grail item for many music fans. There are plenty of reasons for this. The opening track, "Caramelo De Limón", already shows how effective their personal musical recipe can be. Fantastic vocal harmonies, unexpected arrangements, original elements brought into the song and even fierce guitars where needed (their backing band, Los Tickets, would later become Asfalto, one of the biggest hard rock bands in Spain). As the album progresses, every track is a wonderfully idiosyncratic marvel: "Dime Félix", "Roberto Querido", "Fulgencio Pimentel"? One can even find drum breaks on "Quién Le Pone El Cascabel Al Gato". The package is completed with the amazing psychedelic artwork designed by Ivan Zulueta, a cult Spanish artist whose work spanned different fields and some will remember for his film posters for Pedro Almodóvar. Includes booklet with notes by Vicente Fabuel. Presented in facsimile artwork and pressed on 180 gram vinyl. Ultra-clear vinyl; edition of 100." - Vinilisssimo.

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.
