MAGGOT BRAIN - Maggot Brain #8 (Mar/Apr/May 2022)

"The cover feature is an epic, really long timeline of images and interview with the modern king of arts portrait photography, Michael Lavine; Amazing archival images by Gail Butensky and reflections on Pavement + what we think is the band's first new interview in a decade in anticipation of their reunion shows and events later this year. Tom Scharpling talks about prog rock with Matt Berry; A lengthy interview with the SF-based dreamy pop band Cindy by editor Mike McGonigal; Reuben Radding's killer photos and review of a recent show in Brooklyn by Chicago's Irreversible Entanglements; Ana Gavrilovska on why sax player and drone composer Lea Bertucci matters; Sara Jaffe on how essayist Aisha Sabatini Sloan is a genius. Also featuring: Lucy Sante on how the ironic transgressive aesthetic of the early 1990s has perhaps not aged so well: Catching up with self-taught soul artist and political cartoonist, painter Mingering Mike -- including never before printed flyers and Mike's painting of the 'Maggot Brain' cover; Yonatan Gat by Jay Ruttenberg. Plus work on/by: The debut of Mimi Lipson's advice column; Roving Bill Aspinwell -- true letters of a Civil War soldier tramp junkie hobo hero; The great writer RJ Smith on the evolution of 75 Dollar Bill's ecstatic music; SF-based Tamara Palmer on how she was there at the Love Parade in Berlin decades ago when the 'Techno Viking' moment happened; How Philly's Rosali and Emily Robb are the shreddingest shredders in shred-dom, by Michelle Dove; The great writer and photographer Doug Coomber pays tribute to the Detroit Cobras' Rachel Nagy." - Maggot Brain.

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.
