""The Instinct" is part of the journey that takes place on my upcoming album, Along the Way. It is the fire that burns deep in the heart of man, the light by which he sees truth in the sprawling darkness that besets us all. The Instinct begins to set in during the Age of Revealing, when the Architects of Manipulation are discovered and exposed. All of the worlds distractions the inherent faults of the system to which everyone pledges their life, the false journey on which we are all led is the sorcery, the anti magic that has lured the masses away from lives\r\nfilled with personal meaning or self fulfillment. The Instinct kicks in, and reminds the individual that by discovering these elements and empowering himself with the clarity of objective, critical thinking, these sorcerers begin to lose their power, and he can win back his psychic sovereignty. This is the astral battle cry that sounds\r\nin the deepest thoughts of the individual as he begins to defend the palace of being that is his own consciousness." - Mark McGuire
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.
