For the first time edited to 300 copies, the album Premi_ɬ®re Heure" recorded in 1973 by the former members of RHYTHM CHECKERS. Rock/prog French high performance.\r\n
\r\nThe early 70s marks the return of the mythical garage rock formation of the sixties RHYTHM CHECKERS. At the time, two of the bands original band members Roland Bauer and drummer Danny Gentner played in the URBAN TONON jazz band with ex-LOVES and BLACK & WHITE Jimmy Bock (keyboards) /flute). Roland, Danny and Jimmy decide to reform the RHYTHM CHECKERS with another former member of LOVES, Micha_ɬ´l Czeninga (solo guitar). The air of time is progressive rock in French, the group adapts and under the name of CHECKERS, they record a single, "Its a dream" / "Ouanita" (Schneider 22-133) and participate in the Festival Pop de Strasbourg on 27 May 1972 with AMON D_É_ì_É_ìL and ANGE. To earn a living, the RHYTHM CHECKERS orientate towards a style between pop and variety animating balls. But these talented musicians have other projects, under the initiative of Jimmy who made the conservatory until the age of 16 and who is encouraged by the success of groups like ANGE. They embark on an ambitious project, under the name of Crucifer, to create a symphonic rock work entitled "Premi_ɬ®re Heure" based on classical music." - Cameleon.\r\n
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.
