IA-BATISTE - Un Gran Dia

"Key duo from the catalan folk scene, result of the union between Ia Clua (from 2+1") and Jordi Batiste (one of the leading forces of M-ɬ°quina! together with Enric Herrera), after thelater ones return from military service."Un Gran Döa".the duos first album, was recorded at the end of 1972 with the help of such outstanding musicians as Manel Joseph (ex "2+1", Ias early band)), Joaquön "Max" Su-ɬ±er (Vértice, Tapim-ɬ°n, Iceberg y a neverding etc ) & Albert Batiste(Musica Dispersa).The result is an amazing & varied musical tapestry, best heard in the records first side, a long suite covering from orchestral folk-pop with some psych leanings ("Un Gran Döa","Max") to straight in-your-face-Ç hard rock ("Sleeping Rock") via typicalearly 70s prog rock ("Oliba") or uncathegorisable experiments whichdefy all rules-Ç ("Reprise")-Ç and show perfectly the freaky stagereached by the catalan scene in its early years (as a matter of fact,the record is sung in english and catalan...).A piece of wax which went totally unnoticed when first released in a tiny pressing back in the days (thus becoming a big ticket item in the collectors market) and which Wah Wah rescues from oblivionthirty years after its original release.An excellent work which deserves to be discovered by a wider public...Limited issue of 500 numbered copies in gatefold cover reproducing the original artwork, including a colour insert, a colour poster and a bonus 7" single w/ one previously unreleased song." - Wah Wah.

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.
