AFFLICTED MAN - Complete Recordings

Too freaked out for punks and too punked out for freaks, STEVE HALL stalked the nascent British Punk/DIY scene under the guise of AFFLICTED (later AFFLICTED MAN)throughout the early 80s to the interest of almost no one. Hiding in plain sight, Hall unleashed a string of 7-inches and LPs that evoked a singular and unique take on the punk sneer made fashionable by the Sex Pistols and their minion. Primitively blending elements of psychedelia and dub over his feral, chainsaw approach, Afflicted Man unleashed a miasma of tripped out, fuzzy aggro thrashers that would eventually climax into a masterpiece of pedal stomping carnage-the unimpeachable Get Stoned Ezy LP-the likes of which are only now being fully digested. Easily one of the UKs strangest and ignored DIY punk bands. This collection includes the entire output; all three mega rare 7-inches plus the hard to find LPs The Afflicted Mans Musical Bag, Im Off Me Head, and the aforementioned Get Stoned Ezy. Complete Recordings is the type of release to make even the most knowledgeable of humbugs sit up and take notice. Essential in every way. - Senseless Whale. Highly recommended!

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.
