V/A - Variations 3: A London Compilation

"1998 release. A third and final collection of lesser-known and infrequently recorded artists living in London. Features: Syngen Brown (all the music is made using second generation sound sources as well as his own environmental recordings), Wits (first release by four women who specialize in live work. Along with their use of conventional instruments -- voice, electronics, keyboards and percussion -- and a dancer, they also fill the stage space with a huge supply of everyday objects that are noisily explored and unravelled as an integral part of their audio-visual performances), Phil Durrant (this piece was composed for a dance group and uses analog electronics), Voltage (this is an edited version of a performance given at "The Klinker," one of London's oldest clubs for experimental music, film and poetry), Clive Graham (this recording is made from a variety of old half-inch and quarter-inch tapes), Andrew King (previously released a CD of songs called The Bitter Harvest, that dwelt on the darker and less joyous stories within the folk tradition. This piece is from an American source and dates from the late 19th century), Aquiles Pantaleåo (a Brazilian composer and former electroacoustic music PhD candidate at City University), Bob Cobbing (3 pieces from this senior member of the poetry and sound poetry scene, the earliest of these pieces dates from 1964), Hastings Of Malawi (this extract was taken direct from the record that came out in 1980. All members of this group were involved one way or another in the very earliest Nurse With Wound records)." - Paradigm Discs .

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.
