A medieval stomp comes through your left speaker, a drunk robot soundtrack wanders out of your right. A laser pulse rips out of a homemade synth. A fuzzy guitar line dances the off beat. Kraus sounds like the best circus ever!\r\nI was blessed to come across his music via his Supreme Commander tape found at Audio Foundation in Auckland (thanks for the tip Chris!). It was a great comfort for my long trip home. The awesome KRAAK crew brought him over last year for their festival and I warmly welcomed him over to play at Fylkingen with Marijn on drums (Sweat Tongue). Superb gig! \r\nAnyways Ultra Eczema recently put out his decade old album I Could Destroy You with a Single Thought" on vinyl and all 200 sold mighty swiftly. This got me thinking about what else was lurking in his closet and here we are! Golden Treasury is from 2009 and full of gems including my old favourite "Dog on the Loose". Grab one of these beauties while you can! \r\n150 grey tapes with black body printing. Released on Dec 12th. Designed by Peter Larsson with a Kraus supplied image. Risograph print by Jan Matthe." - Oma333.\r\n
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.
