Beniffer Editions

LESSARD, RON - DIY Practitioner

"Submerging a found image with an iconic squiggle has become a signature look for an aesthetic that has travelled now into its fourth decade. This release is a dedication to a person who is up to this point not officially recognized as a visual artist. If you follow the noise thing, the tape thing, the weird thing or the massachusetts thing you may have an original piece of artwork in your record collection worth well over the price of admission. Beniffer Editions replicates the tireless efforts of the experimental scenes most valiant visual manipulator. Rons technique derives from the necessity to put good noise product out there. His work is quick, uses stuff thats lying around, and is built like a tank often due to a colored strip of duct tape. His one off collages on many releases such as The Best", "Moonlight In Vermont", "The Dog Lady Tapes", 1000 Locked Grooves" display the rigor of a dedicated pioneer. Theres no music with this book. If there was it wouldnt be a release by Ron Lessard. \r\n\r\nThis 36 page handprinted book contains six 4 color screen prints, twenty-four 2 color prints, and six 1 color prints. Each book, in true form has an original collage submitted by the artist specifically for this publication. A one time pressing of 120." -Beniffer.

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.
