"Vomir announces the cover box, with laser engraving on black wood, who is the best HNW artist around. HNW stands Harsh Noise Wall, better known as Wall of Noise, and Vomir is Romain Perrot, who's best known for his habit of wearing a black bag over his head when playing live. Six solid CDs that comes with a wooden box, which resolutely occupy a narrow and strictly defined dynamic band, with shifting textures of distortion and heavy low end. In retrospect it's surprising it's taken noise artists this long to notice the appeal of stasis -- its ear-fooling potential amplifies minor structural changes and renders small sound events disproportionately large, as well as allowing them to generate a genre variant which is both intensively aggressive and strangely calming. Nothing is progress. Everything repeats itself endlessly and nothing stands out as important. Nothing more should be undertaken. We will never arrive at the final destination. The truth is over, comes the loneliness. These are definitive new CDs of total static harsh noise, crusting, crushing, crackling of 75 minutes each by the master of the HNW Romain Perrot. No ideas, no changes, no development, no entertainment, and no remorse. Urashima continue the tribute of the genre with more than seven-and-a-half hours of monolithic HNW on six-CD set with an astonishing black wooden box. Each single CD comes in black wallet with no graphics plus individually numbered certificate in 200 copies and foldable color poster with picture and text in French and English." - Urashima.
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.
