..The Room Isnt Big Enough is the creation of five veteran Columbus, Ohio scenesters gathering together for a handful of nights at Tommy Jays Barn/Studio in Harrisburg, Ohio. Most of the songs were written especially for" this project. Don Howland (Gibson Bros, Bassholes), Jim Shepard (Vertical Slit, V3), Ron House (Great Plains, Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments), Tommy Jay (Mike Rep and The Quotas, (Ohio)True Believers) and Mike Hummel (Mike Rep and The Quotas, "basement producer" extraordinaire) have been friends and supporters of each others music since the late seventies. It was generally agreed that some documentation to that fellowship should be recorded before the participants doddered off into "Old Age". This album _is_ that testimony. Although a good time was had, this album is not "good timey". These thirteen songs reflect the blues, folk, and punk roots heritage of all involved. Each song was sung by its lyricist, with the exception of "Half Off", which was sung by Don Howland / written by Ron House. This album also marks the first vinyl release on Hummels long cassette-only Old Age/No Age label, and is limited to 1000 copies." - Old Age/No Age. Very highly recommended!
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.
