"play loud!, the label for film and music, is proud to announce an entire Guru Guru package. The reissues of the original first two Guru Guru albums has been made possible through the fact that Guru Guru regained ownership to their masters. Ufo (1970) and Hinten (1971) will be released for the first time fully authorized by Guru Guru. All other seemingly legal or outright illegal downloads are not authorized by the band. Only with the play loud! releases the band is being paid. Also, play loud! sticks to their idea of chronicling and archiving special moments in history. \r\nWithin the package there is a full 106 min live show from 2010 filmed for the "play loud! (live) music series", an 84 min extensive conversation with drummer Mani Neumeier from 2011, in which he also comments on never-before-seen archive footage of "Kunstzone Munich 1971", both filmed for the "play loud! (live) word series" and three audio downloads of Guru Guru live shows from 1970, 1972 and 1973. 500 copy limited edition of the original album (250 black vinyl + 250 yellow vinyl)." - play loud!
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.
