Blackest Rainbow

NASH, BEN - The Seventh Goodbye

Vinyl debut for long term Blackest Rainbow brother Ben... Im extremly\r\nhappy with this one. 8 tracks, 34 minutes. Opening with a reworking of\r\nKUAD 9873 from his Blackest Rainbow debut cassette... bleak drones\r\nsmothered in vocal lulling, and finishing with a sweet guitar piece\r\nswirling in a lake of percussion, vocal and drone. Nightcall shows a\r\nmore middle eastern psychedelic droning, bowing, wailing, and satanic\r\nmutterings. Track 3 is the title track The Seventh Goodbye, and is\r\nthe most full band approach of Bens acoustic psychedelic folk jams,\r\nbut this blurs into sax blurts, waves of melancholic vocal drone and\r\nwrithing riffery. Perhaps similar to Voice of the Seven Woods or Six\r\nOrgans of Admittance. Side B opener Smoke and Flattery is the most\r\nexperimental - multi percussion, echoes of whispers, finger grating\r\nguitars. Magnetophon Pt IV is not Bens recent Sloow Tape of a\r\nsimilar name, but a bluesy haze LSD dream, building into a drenched\r\necstatic guitar drone. Following this is What Will Always Be Pt.II\r\nwhich is reminiscent of Jack Rose, or James Blackshaw, the most\r\nbeautiful composition on the LP. This bleeds into the final\r\nsurrealness of Angel No. 7 field recordings, bleak, fearful and\r\nempty. Im honoured to release this gem. Limited to 250 hand numbered\r\ncopies on virgin vinyl, with black, white and red pasted on covers,\r\nplus a black and white insert. All artwork designed by Darryl Norsen\r\nwho designed our (VxPxC) sleeve, and done a few beauties for\r\nImportant records, as well as posters for Sunburned, Six Organs, Hush\r\nArbors, Magik Markers and more. - Blackest Rainbow.

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.
I understand these terms
