PUPILLO, MASSIMO/ALEXANDRE BABEL/CASPAR BROTZMANN - Live At Candy Bomber Studios, Vol.1

Curtains up for a new power trio: bass player Massimo Pupillo (Zu, Laniakea), drummer Alexandre Babel (Sudden Infant) and Caspar Brötzmann on guitar. As the title Live At The Candy Bomber Studios, Vol.1 indicates, this album is the first cut from an inspired recording meeting. Raw energy with full focus; three instrumentalists, at the peak of their skills, blend noise rock, drone, and improvisation into two relentless, epic pieces. The line-up consists of Massimo Pupillo, bass player in Zu, Laniakea, and countless other constellations and drummer Alexandre Babel who is a prolific player in the experimental/contemporary field (artistic director of Swiss percussion group Eklekto, member of Kammerensemble Neue Musik Berlin, and soloist who has performed with Otomo Yoshihide and Keiji Haino) and a steady member of the noise band Sudden Infant. And last but not least theres Caspar Brötzmann on guitar who has gained high reputation as one of the most radical guitarists around, admired by acclaimed artists like Thurston Moore (probably one of the best guitarists Ive ever met!") and Stephen OMalley. A powerful unit, recorded live in the studio by Ingo Krauss who had already worked with Brötzmann on the Caspar Brötzmann Massaker albums Der Abend Der Schwarzen Folklore (1992) and Koksofen (1993). 180 gram vinyl; Includes download code; Edition of 500." - Karlrecords.

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.
