SHIT AND SHINE - Jealous Of Shit And Shine

"Long overdue vinyl release of Shit and Shine's second album, Jealous of Shit and Shine originally released by Riot Season on CD only in 2006. Back when Shit and Shine were just a mere two-piece with a wicked sense of humor and a lawnmower, Jealous of Shit and Shine came out and knocked folks bandy. The original CD didnt last long and was never repressed, and since then Craig Clouse has been badgering Riot Season to give it a vinyl release. So here it is, in (almost) all of its original fucked-up glory. The audio has been tweaked a little to make it more vinyl-friendly by the man himself in his Texas bunker, but its still a completely messed-up brain-fuck of an album. The kind only two men and a lawnmower can make. Split into two parts, side A is the live favorite Practicing to Be a Doctor," almost 24 minutes of pounding tribal drums and a ridiculously addictive bassline that just rolls on and on... if you never saw them do this live with anything up to 30 drummers you missed out big-time. Maybe theyll bust it out again one day. Side B features the more wacky/noise/avant-garde side of Shit and Shine. Chaotic, distorted blasts; mesmeric chuntering; tortured guitars and drums disguised as seven tracks. Absolutely fucking delightful, and absolutely like nobody else out there. 100% Shit and Shine. Its no wonder folks were jealous. NME listed Jealous of Shit and Shine at #89 in their "100 Lost Albums You Need to Know" feature, for which Jeremy Pritchard of Everything Everything wrote, " I love Jealous of Shit and Shine the same way I love everything they do; the utter wretchedness coupled with humour; the surprising depth of what could seem initially like a one-dimensional sound; the cast iron but utterly uncontrived absolutely-dont-give-a-fuck-about-what-you-think-ness that it exudes. Although it sounds really abrasive, some song titles and the artwork spell out their playful streak pretty clearly." Summed up well. Neon pink LP housed in PVC sleeve sealed with sticker. Includes download code. Limited edition of 300. One-off pressing; no repress." - Riot Season.\r\n

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.
