I Dischi Del Barone

BLOD - Kare Jesus/Mandys Bil

-¢‚Ǩ-ìAnother nerve-wrecking tape collage work from the Gothenburg-based Blod. Spun from the circle around Enhet För Fri Musik, Blod uses found cassettes to create bizarre glimpses of an extremely cold but thrilling north. Thrift store gems of private home recordings of children singing, random conversations and crude boom box experimentation, sometimes spiced upwith sparse instrumentation and always layered with a rudimentary paus-rec ff-rewind editing.Theres a humorous vein often absent in contemporary tape music, yet the private nature of the source material adds a disturbing flavour. Its often like breaking in into someones living room on a Saturday night and hiding behind the rugged IKEA family couch. Käre Jesus is based on repeated snippets from a Christian congregation somewhere in Sweden, classic A-side material and the one for the charts. The slow burner Mandys Bil on the flipside investigates how gruelling it can be to own a car.
200 copies. Black vinyl, white cardboard sleeve with postcard attached, stamped white labels, insert. Four different cover variations. Plays at 45rpm." - I Dischi Del Barone.

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.
