Quemada Records is happy to announce the release of Kitchen's Floor _¢‚Ǩ_ìLive in Brisbane_¢‚Ǩ¬ù LP, the long awaited vinyl version of their _¢‚Ǩ_ìToo Dead To Notice_¢‚Ǩ¬ù tape only release from the late Brendon Annesleys Negative Guest List Records. The record captures the band live in Brisbane (duh) in 2010 between the _¢‚Ǩ_ìLoneliness is a Dirty Mattress_¢‚Ǩ¬ù (Bedroon Suck/RIP Society) and _¢‚Ǩ_ìLook Forward to Nothing_¢‚Ǩ¬ù (Silbreeze) LPs and at a moment when the band was teetering on oblivion. This performance could easily have been the bands last and in fact was Julia Norris last stand behind the drum kit. The band was also without a bassist which left Kitchens Floor stripped down to main man Matt Kennedy, who had switched to acoustic guitar this evening, and Julia accompanied on a couple tunes by Andrew Mclellans (Cured Pink) stupor inducing organ. By all account the show shouldve been a disaster and maybe it was, but who the hell cares when the disaster sounds this perfect. And let us not forget: these are those moments when ROCK really happens, no matter what murk it must travel to get to your ears. - Quemada
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.
