YEAST CULTURE - Shit On A Shingle

49 copies made. "In about 1991 the Yeast Culture studio (Incubator) was at the Kalberer Hotel Supply Warehouse in Seattle. We then began a project to gather together every recorded moment from the last few years. For this, several reel to reel recorders were used to create very lengthy multitracked stereo montages from all available cassette master recordings. Over a period of weeks, all sounds that we had recorded from before 1987 up to about 1991 were transferred to reel in a vast production process.The results of the reel production process were outputted back onto three cassettes, using higher speeds, in order to fit the material into the format of three 45 minute sides of sound collage. These sounds tapes have never been released in any way until now. They were, however used in the process of the 7" single Wormhole/Birdbath which was published in the 3x7" single set Circusirus (Smorgasbird); the sounds of that single, however were processed in a very complex way, including a total shift to higher frequency, in a way which removes it completely from the three master tapes.The Wormhole/Birdbath recordings utilized several performers in a few sessions. Each session had three performers, two being the Yeast Culture core of Abo and Allen, and the third being another person such as Key, Birdshit, or Dale. Performers simply used a bank of switches to route sound to other members of the triad (these custom switch nodes were called Chaos Boards, and they formed a small network). Sounds were chopped and moved around the stereo spectrum in this fashion. The chaos tapes are not the same as this Shit on a Shingle set, but play a part in the new 2013 remix.Shit on a Shingle times out to about 3 albums worth of pure sound collage -¢‚Ǩ‚Äú on cassette. There isnt repeated material. The sound result has elements of the Rena Leicia -¢‚Ǩ-ìsound," but is more dynamic and ever changing. Its a kind of sound that Yeast Culture was developing which did not appear on any compilations. Its a more opened up free form process, with a wiggly abstract perspective.We hope you find this 7" Shingle to be our best yet! Its the gravy, Shit on a Shingle." - Petri Supply.

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.
