"Working around their core unit of Afonso Simoes (drums), Guilherme Goncalves (electric guitar) and Nelson Gomes (synthesizers), here they find themselves cooperating for the first time with the wonderfully psychedelically vigorous bass playing of Rui Damaso (part of the legendary Loosers) and the topographically globetrotting ways of wayward adventurer conga orchestrator Jerry the Cat (formerly a part of Funkadelic/ Parliament and C.J. & Co touring bands; and later performed on records of Carl Craig, Recloose, Moodymann, Theo Parrish, and many others), both now members of the band. On Broda theyre joined by Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance, Comets On Fire, ETC!), truly one of the most powerful forces in US guitar soul in recent decades, and as terrific a six-string player as one of likely to find on record and onstage in this day and age, wherever that might be. Broda careers through in three passages of positively organized jamming. The fruits of a weeks very intense work on freedom and democracy in the collective artistic gesture revealed in only the slightest of documentarian restraints, so as to excuse us into peeking into this cosmology of friendship and externalization of the luminous." -Gala Drop.
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.
