HUMAN ADULT BAND - Slog Quest Crosstime

"For the last two decades or so, The Human Adult Band, led by T. Penn, has been at the vanguard of New Jersey's sub underground scene. Sometimes there are a lot of them, sometimes there are only a few, but the size of the scumball their music generates is always quite gigantic regardless of their number. Slog Quest Crosstime is a monstrously pleasant example of what the band does. Their LOUD free rock dynamism is a classic example of how to move things from point A to point B without even peeking at a sonic compass. They do have some similarity to bands you might know, but I can't think of any truly exact parallels. Their brutalist riffing can recall Burnt Hills at times, but they display a more evolved sense of forward motion than Albany's basement kings. Their way of collaging varietal space rock motifs makes me remember Crawlspace, but where those L.A. freaks used krautrock as their stylistic pathway to transcending nada, the Human Adult Band seems to prefer the guitar-shard-texturalism of no wave bands (although they sometimes blend these passages with Eastern modalities in a way that would sand-chafe Lydia Lunch's ass.) So, let's not get bogged down in comparisons. The sound of the Human Adult Band is just crazy, pounding DUNT of the highest order. Its bottom (created by T's bass and King Darves' drums) is so thick and wide it almost makes no diff whether they're playing in a trio configuration or a septet. They always manage to FILL the air with smoke. And so it is here. If thou art neither a square nor a moldy fig, I'm pretty sure you'll understand what this album is. Just fucking great." - Byron Coley.

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.
