Emerald Cocoon


_¢‚Ǩ‚Ä_In October 2013 directly after a month long European tour Metal Rouge stepped foot in a legitimate studio for the first time in their history. Elaborate plans for labyrinthine tape delay & spring reverb modalities were scrapped upon arrival, where jet-lagged and delirious they howled out two albums worth of material that they had spent the last month refining on the road alongside rapid fire spontaneous compositions scattered from borrowed amplifiers in a state of tweaked exhaustion. To the casual listener it was not always apparent which was which. Old pieces were spontaneously deconstructed in performance without prior discussion, and improvisations manifested as song forms. A dark energy pervaded the sessions, many gestures seemed channeled. Our minds were often engulfed in the moment leaving our hands to do what they had to. When it was over we had Broke In/Broke Out. Sister albums. We were as surprised as anybody as to what had happened". After 19 full-length releases and 11 years as a creative unit, Metal Rouge present Broke In/Broke Out. Escape in to/out of. One door shuts, another opens. Mourning brass sprayed with guitar hail. Brut raga possession, dark strings chime the universal moment, unconscious sermons delivered in a warm skull. Not conversation, but glossolalia. Not language, but meaning. Silence to sound to silence again.\r\n

\r\nMetal Rouge is Helga Fassonaki & Andrew Scott. Cover art by Dan Melchoir. Covers silkscreened by Alan Sherry at Siwa. Cut by Dubplates & Mastering. Both LPs in a numbered edition of 100 only." - Emerald Cocoon.\r\n

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.
