"Way-above-average improv from Japan. Electric strings (guitars?), saxophones, electronics, and samples move with unexpected ease frommeditative passages to intense blow-outs to free scatter. Sax player Yoshinori Yanagawa plays with the same sort of depth and passion as Albert Ayler--no fakin, no academic rendering. But hes only part of a much larger whole. The wash of precision rumble and sound-tweaking that surrounds everything creates chaos from an intensely ordered technology. Strange (not weird"), exciting music."-Eddie Flowers. "An intensely intriguing IIIrd album from this Japanese guitar/sax/electronics trio, ostensibly in four parts; parts 01. & 04. being short nursery soundscapes, the curtain rise & fall for the mammoth central volcanic continent which is itself shattered into a flies-eye multitude of alternately blasting, then conversational fragments. Yoshinori Yanagawas saxophones veer between Brotzmanesque screams and the deep bowel-rumble of a severe high-colonic impaction (especially when played at 33.3rpm - later, at 45, things resumed a more distinctly saxophonic tone). Electronics dominate most of the tectonic mood swinging going on; Toyohiro Okazaki (& guest sample wrangler Syohei Iwasaki) comes on like some demonic incarnation of Ron Grainers BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Fujio Kimuras "electric strings" are so convincingly grafted on to electronics wall that they together describe a single, enclosed chunk of improvised airspace, which houses the fluttering horn. Coyotes Call is at times an intense and demanding listen, exploring a kind of electronoise-jazz (sans drums) landmass only hitherto trod by hardy souls (Borbeto/Voice Crack collabs being the obvious precedent). Definitely worthy of much further investigation." -Tim Cornelius; Opprobrium. Dislocation also had two CDs on PSF.
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.
