Nothing, Charlie

NOTHING, CHARLIE aka CHARLES MARTIN SIMON - Life and Crimes of Charlie Nothing

Charlie Nothing had many bands that dingulated during the 60s, 70s, and 80s. Dingulations ranged from very well received (After one performance in L.A., Charlie Nothing was offered a ton of money to take a tour to Viet Nam with Bob Hope to entertain the troops. He declined, calculating that he was more likely to get shot than get the money.) to being spat upon by human beings who could not tolerate the disrespect that Dingulation represented to the Hamster Hierarchy of Respectable Entertainment.\r\nCharlie Nothing has had many art shows in very established galleries which are no longer in existence. One of the first canvases he ever produced was purchased by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art circa 1963, after being featured in a show called New York Artists. He has performed in many places and times. Written many songs which were anthologized in the Big Dingulator Song Book," which is unavailable. He composed and produced records and tapes as far back as the late 60s. One of his LPs "In Eternity With Brother Fred" was produced and officially released by the prestigious Tacoma Records and achieved an infinitesimal degree of infamy in Europe under the category of New Jazz, which, of course, it was totally not.\r\nCharlie Nothing quit performing, having finally evolved past the entertaining-monkey-jumping-up-and-down stage." -\r\nCharles Martin Simon. Self published, non-fiction writings from this legendary private press figure. Perfect Bound paperback, 407 pages.

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.
