NIMBUS 2000 - Kettle of Fish Walking: Complete Recordings 1999-2003
Nimbus 2000 is another of Daf Roberts (Alphane Moon, Our Glassie Azoth, Blodeuedd) projects and again his musical offerings give us something that is really worthy of investigation. Kettle of fish walking - compete recordings 1999-2003" contains every Nimbus 2000 track Daf Roberts has recorded and released on his own Oggum label. Some of these recordings originally came out on a series of split 7" eps. Further Nimbus 2000 tracks were released (two to be precise) on a charity compilation CD Oggum released featuring Magic Carpathians, Electroscope and Flying Saucer Attack, to name a few. "Kettle of Fish Walking" includes all of these tracks with two brand new songs exclusive to this compilation. And the music...? Deep-space exlporing. picture yourself voyaging somewhere between a time and an unknown. from somewhere you hear a softly spoken voice reading childrens fairytales. All this is realised within a totally rich, colorful, unique and warm soundscape which recalls the sound of 70s german synth-wizards Schulze and Tangerine Dream. Magical. Have a flow and go. Note that this is a MiniCD of 20 minutes." - Octane Grammophon.
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.
