"Color vinyl. Includes unreleased track. "Welcome reissue of long out of print UK DIY post-punk EP, with OG copies currently demanding triple digits. Previously released on the peerless early '80s DIY-avant punk label 'Its War Boys', Emotional Response is proud to reissue this genuine 1983 Rosetta Stone post-punk-disco-dub oddity from one of the few legit unsung pioneers of the UK underground. Recorded in the twilight hours, at the legendary Surrey Sound with Chris Gray at the controls, featuring the arresting vocals of Sara Fancy, this long out of print EP serves as an essential piece of the jigsaw from a sprawling and fascinating back catalogue of Amos. (AKA Xentos Jones, Amos D'eath, L. Voag, Jim Welton, and others...), the playful lunacy and a driving force and behind such heavy hitters of the UK DIY avant-pop squat scene such as Milk From Cheltenham, L. Voag, The Work, The Fear Merchants, Just Measurers, The Homosexuals... and a bazillion others. This EP collects the three original EP tracks, plus the additional previously unreleased studio dub, rescued from an oxide shedding cassette. All remastered with love and consideration, ready for the gen pubs aural consumption. This is essential and rewarding listening. As those of you who know, will appreciate."" - Emotional Response Records.
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.
