SHIMIZU, YASUAKI & DAVID CUNNINGHAM - One Hundred

Legendary UK producer David Cunninghams (The Flying Lizards, Michael Nyman, This Heat) first album in almost ten years. David Cunningham is a record producer and musician who makes installation works based on real-time exploration of acoustics. His first significant commercial success came with The Flying Lizards single Money," an international hit in 1979. Over the years he has worked with an eclectic range of people and music, from pop groups (This Heat, Martin Creed) to improvisation (David Toop, Steve Beresford) to Michael Nymans music for Peter Greenaways films and work with Ute Lemper and others. His installation works have inhabited the 11th Biennale of Sydney, Tate Britain, ICC Tokyo, Ikon Birmingham and most recently, Carter Presents, London. "Im interested in what happens when time, sound and space are explored together. Inseparable elements, but formal European thought does not really seem to acknowledge this ... I was fascinated by the sonic vocabulary enabled by the reel-to-reel tape recorder and its successor technology -- tools that could manipulate and shape sound like nothing else. Most records I intuitively love involve this sort of treatment -- from Elvis Presleys Heartbreak Hotel to The Ronettes to Terry Riley to Donna Summers I Feel Love and so many more." Yasuaki Shimizu, Japanese composer, arranger and renowned jazz saxophonist (who has worked with Ryuichi Sakamoto, Bill Laswell and The Orb) has been pushing the saxophone to the limit since the 1970s. Whether as a solo performer, with his group Saxophonettes or as a composer for film and video soundtracks (e.g. Peter Greenaways The Pillow Book) he has consistently explored new avenues in an unparalleled musical career. David Cunningham: guitar, footpedals, delays and kalimba. Yasuaki Shimizu: tenor saxophone, piano, delays." - Staubgold.

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.
