Nicodemus, Detroits web-spinning madman of wisdom and space, is a subcultural Renaissance Man. He and his brother Matchez have recorded, singularly and collectively, over 50 albums for Zedikiah Records, the record label Nicodemus started in 1970. He has published 14 books of poetry, prose and fiction. He has sired three sons by as many wives and presided over the infamous Satans Last Revenge Motor Club. He studied for 11 years the healing ways of the Mescalero Apache and is known as Whitecrow in Native American circles, proudly displaying the symbol of a healer over his left eye. He is a surrealist painter of some renown who signs his work Chongo. Nicodemus and Matchezs recordings have long been held sacred by a worldwide cult of fanatics of esoteric music. Their sounds are eclectic, ranging from future folk to heavy rock and even acid house... Jello Biafra said about Nicodemus in Incredibly Strange Music: My runaway favorite space-folk artist... an instantly recognizable voice thatll send chills down your spine. - Parallel World.
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.
