CHURCH SHUTTLE - Aura Deterrent

Vitrine is proud to announce Aura Deterrent, further record of psychic boredom on the lowest rung of the food chain courtesy Detroits Church Shuttle. Mic drops, feedback, tape marginalia and rhythm box as cousin to mundane dread. The bare minimum of song and notion confuse field recordings and an overloaded surge protector. Church Shuttles Chris Durham has documented the dullness of continuous living across projects such as Growth Program, the Bibs, Ivory & Gauze and Quilt Boy while co-running All Gone Records and Tapes. Voice binds empty air by way of sleep paralysis. Call it motivational speaking. Gullies of cellphone interference sputter from a shot amp. Aura Deterrent follows a triathlon of small-run cassettes released on labels such as Alien Passengers, Fag Tapes and Nostilevo. Durham charts daily doldrums and migraines through misdirection of event and disregard. The audial tangle of these four tracks betray a sober attention to deadpan journalism and private testimony. The Industrial and post-Fluxus driftwood of Rod Summers and Storm Bugs crash into bedroom retardation and an instrument-less prog which is as informed by Dennis Duck as it is Henry Cow. Dull junk malfunctions or maybe just stops. Everything comes together. No ten dollar minimum at this party store. Sold out at source. - Vitrine.

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.
