"Hand-numbered edition of 149 copies, debut LP from Isis & Werewolves/Galen/Pterodactyls/Demons alumni Steve Kenney a.k.a. Smoke Dogg. as a founding member of Demons, Steve has become greater recognized over the past few years for his dirty synth and tape delay performance style exclusive to his own. his limited output began with a C30 for Nurse Etiquette in 2009, followed by various collaborations with Chris Pottinger, Heath Moerland (together as Slither), & Andrew Coltrane, + a myriad of limited cassette titles. Live Lex" is his first piece of vinyl, and additionally, "Live Lex" is also one of the least pretty & welcoming synth records I have ever heard. a record that is clearly intended for a dark nite, from what maybe was a dark nite. brings to mind select works of Maurizio Bianchi, Franciso Lopez, & Asmus Tietchens, however this record does not mimic; Steves sound is one of his own. very stark, yet without a limited scope; exceptionally full synth accents through an extremely dense fog clatter; that of the pro-one death sound. Here, listen to Steve find true uncharted darkness within his vices." - Nostilevo.
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.
