"Its been said that Amherst, MAs Josh Burkett is an "unsung hero,_¢‚Ǩ¬ù but really thats a lot of hogwash. Among the "right company_¢‚Ǩ¬ù (Corsano, Coley, Valentine, etc), hes sung loud and long. Former member of one of my favourite groups Vermonster, owner of the glorious Mystery Train record shop and deeply weird label Mystra Records, and a musician of ungodly skill, dexterity and wilful oddness, hes had regrettably few vinyl releases to his name in recent years. This re-issue of his finest solo album aims to address that. Never has a musicians output more accurately represented his personality and Josh is a distinctly unobtrusive but delightful and deeply interesting man. His voice _¢‚Ǩ‚Äú quiet and a little bashful _¢‚Ǩ‚Äú gives the listener a clear choice: listen carefully or lose out on something amazing. And his (acoustic and electric) guitar playing, often overlaid with all manner of other instrumentation and recorded ambient sound, is, I say without hesitation, nothing short of sublime. Humbled to be able to put this out into the world once more." - Golden Lab.
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.
