Together Tapes

V/A - Nohio

"A lot has changed in the 4 years since I found the box of medical noise cassettes that would inspire the Nohio tape series. Many of the artists featured no longer live there, some projects no longer exist, and a whole new crop of sickos has clawed up into place. Each volume of the original tapes were released in an extremely limited edition of 30-33 copies and featured one of my favorite Ohio artists on one side and the found med fucked sounds on the other. The project served as a transition from my involvement with Epicene (who the original tapes were co-released with) and living in Ohio to Together and moving to Portland. The box represents a sliver of what was going on in Ohio at the time but is a personal snapshot of the weirdo scene in Ohio circa 2004. For this set Mike Shiflet has provided a bonus side of heavily concentrated visceral nerve noise not a part of the original series, which serves as a tribute to Ohio friends. Plus the inclusion of my favorite found medical sound" side with the name Samuel T. Washington enscribed on the original. All boxes feature heavily painted, silkscreened artwork, with all over tape labels and strange silkscreened patches all glued together and clear gunked over. This an edition of 100. Includes Leslie Keffer, Iovae, 16 Bitch Pile-Up, Ultra // Vires, Jason Zeh, To-Night Golden Curls, Steam Drapula, Organs, Yes,Collapse, Burning Star Core, Crack In Iraq, Sword Heaven, Mike Shiftlet, and Samuel T. Washington." -Together Tapes

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.
