PYLON - Keep Your Melody Hands On My Burning Gems

Pylon (not the Athens, USA act but their Finnish namesakes) drew their sleeve themselves and made something psychedelic out of it. And thats how they sound too, with lots of LSD-sounds-on-reverb. Imagine Spacious Mind or St. Mikael (Pylons Moving zorros" is a bit folkish) without the songs and without any heavy guitar at hand, just for the wooden sound, in an experimental workshop somewhere, and add some 1967 lysergics from Middle Earth. "Keep Your Melody..." features five weird but wonderful instrumentals which echo what Syd Barrett must have been feeling like while all that craziness on Recommended was happening in the eighties..." - (pv) / u zine.\r\n"And yet another fine blat from the woods of Finland: Pylon are a duo who combine the lost campfire ethos of some neo-no wavers currently making the rounds. How they arrived at the synthetic mix contained on "Keep Your Melody Hands On My Burning Gems" is something that I am unable to explain, but it is equally difficult to ignore the strange mucus-laden braying of this platter. The sleeve claims that it is Pylons fifth "album", but this is presumed to be a canard. It is very unlikely that a group this odd could have escaped attention for four entire releases." - Byron Coley/The Wire.

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.
