"Leslie Keffer has been one of the most startling and provocative practitioners of 21st century USA noise music since her first harsh emanations on the cassette underground in the early 2000s. Ecstatic Peace released her first full length LP Feels Like Frenching a few years back and it was hailed as a cornerstone in new blood noise exploration. Boomkat.com reported, 'she's beating the noise-boys at their own experimental game and winning...Keffer had me at hello.' And Performer magazine heard the LP as 'a dense series of coded subconscious messages sent from some buried cerebral cortex.' On this new 12", which has been waiting to be issued or near on two years, she joins forces with local Nashville rockers John Eatherly (Be Your Own Pet, Jemina Pearl), Steve Poulton (Paul K & The Weathermen) and fellow noise artist Valerie Martino (Unicorn Hard-on). These two tracks are a departure from the pure noise action Leslie is known for and present her current trajectory into hypno dance dub psychosis with waves of junk filtered radio wash and siren chants. The artwork by Adriane Schramm is astounding." - Ecstatic Peace.
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.
