KLONDIKE & YORK - Holy Book

"You know, I get a lot of records in the mail, and Id say that most of em are CDRs. The way technology has gone, thats only natural for independent music, and I try to give all CDRs a fair shake, but its just never as nice as getting a vinyl LP in the mail. When its on vinyl, you just know its probably going to be good, or at least carefully considered, which CDRs almost NEVER are, even when they ARE good. Now if this primitive/outsider sax/drums/electronics LP by Klondike & York had been a CDR, I wouldve still really liked it, but having it pressed onto vinyl with a cool-ass color cover, well, as Al Pacino would say, "Forget about it!" Its top-notch! Its essentially a sax and drums free jazz duo, one Chad Stockdale on sax and one Nate Beier on percussion, with a lot of heavy blowing and space-out time-keeping, but Im tempted to not call it free jazz. I mean was The Psychedelic Saxophone of Charlie Nothing free jazz? No, it was psychedelic saxophone, and so is The Holy Book. And, to help sew it up as something other, theres also some synthesizer on here. Its not credited to any one musician, the word just floats in the space right after the credits. This is pretty much what the synth does on the record too, it just sort of mysteriously appears now and then. Trippy silk-screened labels too. Actually, the whole LP, from the home-recorded vibe to the shadowy appearance to the Northern California return address, reminds me of when the first Six Organs of Admittance LP appeared and left blown minds in its wake. There may still be time to get your mind blown, but I really doubt there are any more than 500 of these floating around, so hurry up!" -Larry "Fuzz-O" Dolman, Blastitude.

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.
