PULP MUSIC - Low Flying Aircraft

-¢??Pulp: Low Flying Aircraft is what happens when avant-garde meets punk on neutral ground, a wonderfully delirious disaster area. I love it-¢?¬ù - New Musical Express, 1979.-¢??The excellent Low Flying Aircraft -¢?? a single whose potency and raw energy gave the punks a run for their money.-¢?¬ù - City Limits, 1979."This enigmatic 7-¢?¬ù, released in 1979, is one of the most startling DIY record from this period: it originally comes in a plain white cover with Pulp Music or Pulp written and two signatures, no label but a white pen numbering and an extra hole burned instead. The music was as rough as you could guess from this strict design: a very -¢??intense mix of manic precise percussions together with vocal yelps, grunts and screams leavened with distortion and feedback-¢?¬ù.The so-called Pulp or Pulp Music (in fact the label name, not the band name) was a London based duo composed of the performance artist Anne Bean and the percussionist and instrument-maker Paul Burwell. Anne Bean has presented solo and collaborative projects incorporating visual art, sound, and performance since the beginning of the 70s. Active on the improvised music scene through the 70s, notably in a collaboration with David Toop and poet Bob Cobbing, Paul Burwell was also one of the founding member of the London Musicians Collective.This duo met several years before the release of this 7-¢?¬ù and began to perform in various places until the beginning of the 80s. One of their last appearance took place in october 82 at the occasion of the Final Academy which was intended as a celebration of William Burroughs. During three days, this event featured readings by William Burroughs, Brion Gysin and John Giorno, together with bands like Cabaret Voltaire, Psychic TV, 23 Skidoo -¢?¬¶ and a remarked performance from Anne Bean and Paul Burwell as described by Performance Magazine:-Ç -¢??(...) but Burwell and Bean put an incredible show of pyrotechnics preaching, pounding of drums and proclaiming of White mans gotta god complex by the Last Poets. A sample of the late Steve Cripps legacy of explosives had the battery of the exotic snappers, video and super eighters, minor celebs and their retinues, scampering for cover, as Anne bean raged, stamping her feet in the billowing smoke.-¢?¬ùSoon after this event, Anne Bean and Paul Burwell extended their duo with sculptor Richard Wilson, to form the influential and much noticed performance group, BOW GAMELAN ENSEMBLE, which lasted until the beginning of the 90s. Sadly, Paul Burwell died on Sunday 4th February 2007." - Poutre Apparente.Sort of unbelievable, "labor of love" reish of this amazing single. Color cardboard sleeve (different than the original obviously) and insert with photos, lyrics, info, etc... Highly recommended! Restocked.

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.
