KOMMISSAR HJULER & MAMA BAER - Amerikanische Poesie und Alkoholismus
"180 Gram Edition of 500. Officer Hjuler of the Flensburg police, and his wife Frau Baer give an earsplitting lecture on sound poetry on the A side and lull us into a state of American Alcoholism on the flip. This German duo has over 200 releases on their own lathe cut/cdr imprint and is quickly racking up international honors, album credits and acclaim. This is their largest LP release to date.\r\nOne side is Kommissar Hjuler und Frau : ONCE AGAIN concrete poetry (or was it the song?) a collage of US-american sound poetry, collected by Jean-Francois Bory, presented by Kommissar Hjuler und Frau.\r\n"One side is Mama Baer : Alcoholisme - brut field recordings with mama baers voice and treatment. \r\n"Amerikanische Poesie... is the duo at their most hilariously alienating and crudely sophisticated." -David Keenan in WIRE\r\n"this is, naturally, a batshit-crazy affair, with the two absolutely howling over the purported _¢‚Ǩ_ìlegacy_¢‚Ǩ¬ù materials (through a fender princeton from the sound of things) - its both terrifying and oddly inspiring (which sums up most of what makes this stuff so ... engaging)." - Keith Fullerton Whitman
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.
