Welcome to Astral Social Club: your MC is British avant-garde guru Neil Campbell. Put on your dancing shoes, because this is hallucinating, intergalactic trance music of the highest order and its about to take off. The up-beat, cosmic vibes of Campbells first terrestrial voyages aboard the drone/krautrock ship were already very impressive, but with Astral Social Club he sets sail for the stars. Campbell manages to create something entirely unprecedented on this album: trance music as played in the clubs at the other side of the solar system. Or perhaps were listening to the intoxicating smoke signals from extra-terrestrial pirate stations? While listeners may recognise the earthy kraut rock rhythms, the compelling, minimalist drones and a few catchy pop melodies, Astral Social Music is entirely of itself. The moment at which youve become completely immersed in a hypnotic groove is the moment the Club decides to let loose one of the awkward beats or melodies it has in its arsenal. This soundtrack for the ultimate trip surges, pounds, vibrates, swings, pulsates and sucks on your subconscious; its organic music breathes in and out like a shrinking and expanding universe. Leave all nocturnal troubles of the moonlit world behind you and turn your gaze to the sunrays emanating from the Astral Social Club. Reverberating voices and melodies from outer space and rhythmic pulsar fly past at rapid speed only to be swallowed up in a black hole on their way to another dimension. You Einsteins and Hawkings of this world, hold on to one another for the Big Bang Dance festival of your dreams.\r\nSieben Stax is packed in the beautiful envelope packaging, designed and handprinted by Jason Dodge & Christine Roland, a one-off pressing of 250 copies. - Bottrop-Boy.

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.
