"Frank Hurricane's been chugging along at his own personal pace for a good while now, and the further he rambles, the further we roam with him. Here he's joined by Jake Merrick on bass, vocals, and keys and John Spiegel on drums and percussion. And it feels good. The group exquisitely compliments Frank's tales of travel and serenity and the embrace of uncertainty. There's a languid hallucinatory Meat Puppets vibe to 'Creekside Cooler,' 'Spivey,' and 'Wildorado,' a song with a killer Taco Bell shout-out. Elsewhere they lope through after-hours vibes that could be drawn from the Raccoon catalog or some Shangri-La Studio sessions. Some examples: 'Cold and Snow' gives a classic American trope the Hurricane psilocybin head nod treatment. Frank's always aware of spirits, and on 'I Know I'll See a Ghost' he casts himself as temporarily dead -- or halfway dead at least. It's the spiritual purgatory outlined by George Saunders in Lincoln in the Bardo funneled into a '90s flannel. 'Devil's Looking Glass' is almost bardic in scope and feel. 'Dandelions' renders the intoxication of amorous desire into a chug worthy of Crazy Horse. 'Luna Belle' starts as a lilting evening lament and gallops off to the moon before it gets started. 'Dreamed About You' could be a song about missing just about anything or anyone or any hope or any wish. And so Frank Hurricane yawps wide and loud, once again, without apology, from his jug of love. This record is an elegy to sadly departed friends (Danny Cruz, Terry Turtle, et al.), and a beautiful dream of a future none of us can quite imagine but should probably be working towards." --Matt Krefting, Holyoke, MA 2020" - Feeding Tube.

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.
