SMEGMA - Pigs for Lepers

CD reissue of great 1982 LP includes extra material. Limited to 500 copies. Pigs For Lepers was Smegmas second longplayer, originally-Ç the seventh release on their own Pigface Records imprint back in 1982. This CD is a limited reissue and is U.K. label Harbinger Sounds first shot in an attempt to coherently catalogue Smegmas wayward non-career. The cover features the original picture that was thought in bad taste and upset local printers, as part of an 8 page colour booklet that also includes artwork and photographs from the Smegma archives. An extra track too - Mutant Baby - recorded live in 1979 and featured on an obscure Trap Records compilation from years back. The actual Pigs... recordings span 1962 right up to 1982. This is an excellent introduction to the world of Smegma - a band whose influence has slowly seeped everywhere over the past few decades - ask Nurse With Wound, Wolf Eyes, Merzbow or any of the New Weird America crowd whom would give anything to be as weird as Smegma! To parrot writer Richard Meltzer, youll never hear sound the same way again." -Harbinger Sound

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.
