DIE TODLICHE DORIS - Kinderringelreihen Fur Wahren Toren Des Grals
During the years 1980-87, German trio Die T-֬°dliche Doris (Deadly Doris) was a vital presence in the Berlin underground music and art scene. Early records on cult labels Zickzack and Atatak revealed Doris as a willfully obscure component of the neue deutsche welle, and their live shows melded their particular brand of raw post-punk cacophony with high-minded performance art sensibility. This overdue release, whose title translates to Nursery Rhymes for True Fools of the Grail, adds greatly to the canon as it is only the second CD by Die Todliche Doris, and contains 20 strange, rare and unpublished tracks from 1980-85. In addition to a wide cross-section of previously unreleased live material, it culls several unheard recordings from the Doris archive, and documents some unusual collaborations, switched identities and lo-fi early tracks such as Doris Intakt, Schuld-Struktur and the groups primitive take on Warm Leatherette. With photos, fully annotated liner notes and an attractive package designed by Richard Chartier, this CD will prove a valuable document to both Doris cognoscenti and neophytes alike. 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.
