NOSEYAMA, YOUKI - Matter and Life

"Edition of 100 copies. Discounted price due to the oversized paper sleeves arriving from Japan with bent corners. "Matter and Life" is the first ever LP release by Youki Noseyama from Niigata, either under his own name or his previous Diesel Guitar moniker. The sheer physicality of Noseyamas performances were always next to impossible to document on any recorded format, but Noseyama has now created this work especially for his first vinyl release. Three tracks from 2015 have been carefully selected from his vast body of recordings, and can be read as a digest of the continuous drone style that Noseyama has focussed on since his cassette works. All tracks have been mastered by Kiyoharu Kuwayama (Lethe). The jacket includes a unique, handmade, detachable artwork sheet. Limited to 100 copies.

Youki Noseyama: Born in 1967 in Niigata. Primarily a solo guitarist. Started playing in improvised groups in Osaka in 1987. Began performing as Diesel Guitar in 1991. From 1993 started the Pursuit of Noise live series at OZC School in Osaka with Monde Bruits and other local artists. This developed into live performances in Kobe, Kyoto, Tokyo and other cities. Returned to his native Niigata in 2000. Released his first CD "Stream of Lights" in 2002, and a second CD "Resonance 2003-2010" in 2011. Participated in the Niigata-based Anti Music music event from 2006. With Niigata as his base, he performs occasionally in Osaka and Tokyo. In December 2012 he reverted to his real name, Youki Noseyama, and released his third CD, "Kaze no Utsuwa". - Art Into Life.

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.
