RAMIREZ, RICHARD - Amplified Tactics

"Amplified Tactics collects four segments of live performances from Texas and Mexico in 1999, rolling back to an era when live noise shows were isolated mysterious affairs or opportunities to infiltrate mundane society via bars, tea shops, art galleries, youth centers, and goth clubs. Richard Ramirez is one of the first and last standing harsh noise originators from the Texan deserts and humid turf that would spawn some of the most influential and dirtiest units to ever grace the Xeroxed pages of zines ranging from industrial to grindcore. Having touched all the most essential noise imprints of his time (Tesco Organization, Praxis Dr. Bearmann, Release, Membrum Debile Propaganda, MSBR, Self Abuse Records, Mother Savage, etc.), Ramirez continues to define "fetish" in noise. Since the application of live recordings was a cornerstone of the artist's studio process these live sessions are as wide ranging, fluid and climactic as any proper "studio" releases from the vast library of SM noise that Mr. Ramirez has explored on the eve of 30 years of existence. If you're looking for an entry point to probe the inner working of Ramirez's most iconic visions of noise, Amplified Tactics is essential with its saturated ripping and wild envelopes. Edited from the original 2xCDr originally released in an edition of 50. Housed in a deluxe wide spine foil block jacket with large format newsprint poster; Edition of 300." - Hospital Productions.

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.
