FOVEA HEX - Huge

Following the critical acclaim which has greeted EP 1 Bloom, Die Stadt and Janet Records are proud to announce that Huge EP 2 in the Neither Speak Nor Remain Silent limited edition series by Fovea Hex is out. Fovea Hex continues to shape-shift and to evade & confound those who bray what exactly IS it?, and where does it BELONG exactly?, and who exactly belongs to IT?. If you must bang on the table like that, you wont hear a thing. If this music can be described as up-to-the-moment, then perhaps we could use an up-to-the-moment term like collective. But eschewing all Fashion Accessory stalls, it lives as many miles away from the shocknawe factory beloved of the avantgarde, as it does from the souvenir-strewn temple of the new nostalgics. All in all, Fovea Hex is something more akin to a labrynthine ensemble of associates, some recent, some ancient, some close to the core, some distant, some very heard-of and some never-heard-of, all of whom showed willing and able, at some point in time (and for reasons best known to themselves) to slither in and help prepare and perform these songs and quasi-songs written -- or at least started-off -- by Clodagh Simonds. Songs that dont go where you think. With voices to match... somebody said recently. At the end of the day, thats about all that CAN be said with any kind of certainty. If you need a better idea of what this means, visit the Janet Records website now, where youll find some treats we prepared earlier -- three mixes (by Andrew McKenzie) of near-moment excerpts from the songs from EP 1 Bloom and three (by Colin Potter and Clodagh Simonds) from new songs from EP 2 Huge. Players on Huge: Clodagh Simonds, Colin Potter, Roger Doyle, Cora Venus Lunny, Brian Eno, Laura Sheeran, Percy Jones, Carter Burwell, Lydia Sasse, Hugh ONeill, Sarah McQuaid. The CD comes in a full colour embossed cover. Edition of 2000 copies. - Die Stadt.

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.
