1971 Spanish album that featured the talent of three of the most significant musicians from the Catalonian underground movement of the late sixties: Jaume Sisa, J.M. Brabo El Cachas and Albert Batiste, who after their Miniatura project with Pau Riba were joined by young hippie girl Selene. This sole effort by the group is a masterpiece of melodic tunes that pay a tribute to the English folk movement of the era, as it does to the early Amon Du_ɬºls freak out sound concept . Echoes of The Incredible String Band are present mainly in the guitar parts; drums are absent in all but one track on which they are played by Josep M Vilaseca Tapi, of M_ɬ°quina & Tapiman fame, but percussion, harmonica, organ, mouth harp, piano and wordless vocals are heard throughout the album, as is Selenes flute work. All in all this is a strange, relaxing little piece of underground from Barcelonas early seventies hippie youth that has become a classic of Spanish pop music; available in a 1000 copies only strictly limited edition that respects the original gatefold artwork, including the slight relief of the cover illustration. Extensive liner notes and photographs. - MMS. Highly Recommended!
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.
