EDWIGE - s/t

The intrinsic fandom tendency toward Eurotrash actress Edwige Fenech has possibly been one of the most encompassing examples of obsession" translating into layers of pummeling abrasive sound, especially in the building block heyday of the heavier OVMN and Incapacitants inspired style of international contemporary, early 00s, harsh noise artists. Edwige Fenech - just the name sends the educated into a whirlwind of her cinematic stylizations, objectification, and glorious portrayal and generator of mandates for various Eurotrash genres: The inconceivable layered work with Rosalba Neri in The Seducers (1969); The awe inspiring bobbed haircut and mannerisms of Gently Before She Dies (1972); The sex worker apparel and curly blonde wig from Taxi Girl (1977); The slicked and pinned back hair and nylon worship of Dr. Jekyl Likes Them Hot (1979); The crew cut haircut and bare feet glimpses from Strip Nude For Your Killer (1975); The 70s wavy, curly hair and the stockings during the sultry couch scenes from Lover Boy (1975); The courtesan role intense leg worship and playful mannerisms of Giovannona Long Thigh (1973); The sun-tanning and fetish exercise programs of Vices In The Family (1975) acting alongside Susan Scott; The medieval maiden and mistress aesthetic of Ubalda All Naked And Warm (1972). Not unlike the pornography and the extreme lifestyle fascination of the 90s Americanoise, the interests continued to be deconstructed and melded into harsh noise as the conscious and studious harsh noise artists of the 00s continued to study the European cult film and its objectified actresses and fetish driven aspects. The experience is cumulative the more you watch, collect, and study the various genres that Edwige Fenech was featured in and that inspired the cumulative and layered aspects of the harsh noise project Edwige with the original line-up of Keith (Mania), Sam McKinlay (The Rita), and Dan Johansson (Sewer Election), and later Nolan Throop (Kakerlak) filling in for Keith on a 2008 American tour. Between the sets on the 2008 tour from The Rita, Sewer Election, Kakerlak, and Dog Holocaust, the 90s rough American style, harsh noise worship was palpable. Its only natural that a tape was generated as exemplary from the tour days of 2008. Comes on 140 gram vinyl; Comes in a deluxe silver silkscreen on black cardboard sleeve; Includes a black and white poster; Edition of 199 (hand-numbered)." - Urashima.

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.
