Mindbending heavy acid space rock from Sweden 1969! Mecki Mark Men was (together with Hansson and Karlsson) Jimi Hendrix favourite Swedish band. When Jimi came back from his Swedish tours he probably told tales about the wild Swedish organ tormentor Mecki Bodemark who did the same things with his grinding Organ as Jimi did with his guitar. They sound like a mix of Teargas, High Tide and Jimi Hendrix but with a wild organ player in glittering space costume. The mighty guitar wizard Kenny Hakansson has never been more psychedelic than this!!! While I was searching for the master tape to Mecki Mark Mens 2nd album titled "Running in the Summer Night" I discovered the original master which was originally meant to be released as the Swedish version of the album. Mecki Mark Men was contracted by Philips in Sweden but it was Limelight records in the USA who released the album in 1969. I compared the Limelight tapes and the newly discovered Philips tapes. Basically it was the same album but sound wise it was two totally different ones. Musically it is still brain melting Heavy Acid Space Rock driven by the fury of demons, but now with a fantastic pure and dynamic sound! The CD includes the album plus bonus material from the US version as well as short conversations from the studio. Detailed biography by Reine Fiske and Tommy Dahln!!!" - Mellotronen
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.
