MIRROR - Viking Burial for a French Car

Through the past few years Mirror have gained a wide reputation for some of the most beautiful unearthly drone music. Mirror is usually regarded as a duo of Christoph Heeman and Andrew Chalk. Their Viking Burial for a French Car consists, partly, of a recording made by Mirror in Dundee, Scotland in October 2003, where Mirror was extended with David Keenan (author of Englands Hidden Reverse), Gavin Laird and Alex Neilson. The concert was an accompaniment to the film Haxan, about witchcraft through the ages. In an epic thirty-seven minutes, Mirror extends beyond the drone music and comes up with an orchestral piece, in an almost Xenakis style: building a large crescendo and in the middle an explosion Afterwards the piece slowly follows its course in descrescendo. A surprising piece for Mirror, that would not have worked on a LP release. Its length requires an uninterrupted listening. Viking Burial for a French Car is one of the rarer CD releases by Mirror, who usually release their work on LP, and will surely appeal to those with a limited music budget. Packed in the usual Plinkity Plonk sleeve. - Plinkity Plonk.

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.
