"Ecstatic Peace has been wanting to release a CD by Lord Jeff since we first heard their stray tapes and CDRs floating around the Pioneer Valley like so much spring pollen a few years back. We knew nothing about them except they had some familial connection to The Entrance Band who we were most definitely interested in, and subsequently released an amazing LP and CD by. As it turned out Ecstatic Peace founder Thurston Moore's niece Louise Erdman reported she had been singing backups in this band Lord Jeff, so Uncle T went to see them at Union Pool in Brooklyn one fine rock n' roll evening and was entirely charmed. Plans went into action to release something/anything by these cats and after many moons of them playing in front of single digit audiences they got it together to record this amazing and beautiful disc. Think the genuine heart music of Buffalo Springfield and Wooden Wand with sweet Garcia moves and a punk gleam in the eye. Chief songwriter Sean Goggins is a gentle force of inspiration and his sound and vision are captured lovingly by the legendary Justin Pizzoferrato (J Mascis, T Moore, Fat Worm of Error etc.)." - Ecstatic Peace.
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.
