Catsup Plate


"Al Anon concludes Eric Copelands two part album entitled Alien In A Garbage Dump. Where the first half offered a discombobulated\r\ncollection of radio cross-signaling, here the alien finds its groove for a minute and tidies up the frequencies. There is still something outsiderish here, but with more of an effort to get inside, to play by the rules even? Or maybe the motivation is to sneak something subversive into the norms hideout?\r\nSince _Al Anon_ was recorded at the same time as two Black Dice\r\nalbums, there are obvious parallels in the results; an uncompromised\r\nsonic landscape. But outside the group setting, Copeland has found\r\nplaces one can only find alone: small inner dialogues and isolated\r\nmind caves where an idea may only last a moment. He captures and\r\ntweaks these ideas into fragments of many memories; a d_ɬ©j_É vu record\r\nd_ɬ©j_É vu record. Funny characters drop in and out. Songs come and go.\r\nAl Anon proves to be a strangely curated time capsule of OUR time\r\nright NOW; music where birds beat-box with car-stereo subwoofers and\r\nthe neighbors Espanol sings on top the Sabbath siren. With all this\r\ngoing on, Copeland sometimes disappears into the anonymity, playing a\r\nbehind-the-scenes role, pushing cords and pulling buttons, laughing\r\nbecause the batteries are dying. Here the familiar becomes mysterious\r\nand the unknown feels normal and we can listen to this one all day\r\ntrying to make those distinctions.\r\nEdition of 500 copies with jaw-droppingly amazing black and white\r\ncollage artwork by Copeland, screenprinted by VG Kids". - Catsup Plate.

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.
