DAMENBART - Impressionen 71

The world of Krautrock was forever changed in late 1987 when the master tapes for the mythical never-released album by the early 70s trio Damenbart were discovered in Spain by a former associate of the band. The incredible find was whispered about in elite collector circles for months and when the tapes were finally played back publically for the first time, it quickly became apparent that all of the legend and hype that surrounded these mysterious 1971 recordings had been completely justified. The tapes were soon handed to members of the German experimental group Hirsche Nicht Aufs Sofa to give the album a proper release and allow this music to finally see the light of day. The resulting LP was immediately hailed as a classic of Krautrock, with one excited reviewer calling it the best album Ash Ra Tempel never made!" Unfortunately, as this LP was issued in only a very small edition, many Krautrock fans wound up bitterly empty-handed. Now, once and for all, this amazing album is being brought forward again for all of the hungry ears out there to fully digest. In addition to re-issuing the recordings contained on the LP, this CD appends an additional 19 minutes of previously unreleased studio material from the original sessions, as well as a live track from 1972. The packaging features several photos of the band along with some mind-blowing collage art, and this CD is destined to become an instant favorite amongst enthusiasts worldwide. Limited edition of 750 copies." - Psychedelic Pig.

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.
