The Deathguard Remnants contains rare lo-fi recordings that were left off of legendary underground poet and composer Todd Tamanend Clarks best-known album Nova Psychedelia 1975-1985 due to space constraints. Appearing on these tracks are Tom Herman (Pere Ubu), Cindy Black (John Cale), Don Ostrow (Sofex), and Chuck Moses (Moses). Included are re-makes of I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night" by The Electric Prunes and "Approximately Infinite Universe" by Yoko Ono, an instrumental re-mix of "Flame Over Africa" entitled "Flame Over Cleveland", six spoken word sound sculptures, both sides of a previously unreleased single edited from his fourteen-minute psychedelic epic "The Grim Rider", as well as the edgy surrealistic original "Near To Nova"!\r\nTodd Tamanend Clark was born on August 10, 1952 in Greensboro, Pennsylvania and is a Native American of Onodowaga and Lenape descent. He is the father of six and the grandfather of four. He continues to release new recordings of both vocal and instrumental music." - Todd Clark.\r\n

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.
