Absurd

P.D. - Inweglos

Little by little, the musical career of Ralf Wehowsky is unfolded on CD, either his work with P16.D4 or its predecessor PD. Some of these works were released as EaRLyW, simple because Wehowsky (aka RLW) was the main man behind P16.D4 and PD, but here as PD. The band included members such as RLW, Jochen Pense, Joachim Stender and Achim Szepanski. PD recorded Inweglos LP, but also a 7 and a flexidisc - the latter are not included in this release, for reasons I dont know. In some of these tracks PD is shown as a typical Neue Deutsche Welle band: finding their own form within rock music based on punk \r\nand new wave but in a more alternative form and as always with German lyrics. PD use to quite an extensive part synthesizers and rhythmboxes, along with bass guitars, guitars and vocals. At times they sound like a very free form improv band and at other times a more rock version of the early Der Plan, but without so much of humour involved in Der Plan. PD is much more political (see Ayatollah Carter) and also more dark in their lyrics - save for some hints towards disco in Progressive Disco. Some of the material forecasts the later P16.D4 work, such as in the semi cut-up of Kurzzug Nach Frankfurt, but in general fits the 1980 sound very well: distorted, free form music, taking punk and new wave in a much wider field of music. Maybe I didnt play the LP in many years, but the renewed appearance is for sure a good one. It was indeed one of those more obscure classics waiting to be re-issued." - FdW.

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.
