BIRCHALL, STEVE - Reality Gates

...deep-fried one-man-against-the-cosmos synth-automaton gunk from the distant us midwest (specifically; bloomington, indiana) of the early 70s, initially released on/by the custom fidelity recordslabel/plant... starts out with the absolutely piercing high tones/clarion call of music of the spheres after which we become the (un)willing passengers on dr. steven t. birchalls mind-trip excelsior, passing through several key lobes of the beyond before zeroing in on the cranial lump responsible for, amongst other things, time itself...\r\n...but dont take my word for it; no less an authority on the xian psych/synth-dude crossroads than graveyard / wolf eye john olson (in response to the oeuvre(s) of mr.s birchall & nik pascal raicevic - more about him in due time) hath decreed:\r\n...unbelievable jaw destroying dude with problems & synths lp that are in their own frozen universe. something about deranged synth damage through the jokey-gimmicky electronics make for a slightly melodic less academic and avant folk real people iron forest jam every more unsettling. done right and done strange and individual these social misfits with cracked circus gear really drive the mad home to trance mediations & rhythmic hammers of swamp glue to truly cracked musics. upon millions of listening,, there is an approach & depth to this that stands more honest & direct than more serious electronic musics. this could be the ramleh & k. mizutanis of the mid 70s? true psychosis. few and far between but the payoff is a lifetime of mutant brain waves.\r\ncertainly a neglected outsider-electronics classic, once again made audible/tangible, our lives made just that much more worth living by mr. p.c. c.p. - Creel Pone.

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.
