TAYLOR, DUB - Lumiere For Synthesized & Concrete Sound

this record is zonked. and by that i dont mean that i cant conjure up other adjectives (i most certainly can; fried, surrealist, inept, genius, etc...), just that i cant get my head around describing what it is mr. taylor is doing exactly. it almost sounds like someone... as the brits say -جø¬-??taking the piss-جø¬-?-جø¬- out of musique concrète... but then again theres this twisted logic to the construction of the whole thing thats just so... out... (i.e. -جø¬-??i know... lets just pile everything up on top of itself and not edit it at all...-جø¬-?-جø¬-) - the sound-combinations so seemingly random thats its hard to believe a conscious composer/technician type didnt lay this to tape back in 1972...my favorite bits are when a voice (i assume its the composers) comes in near the beginning, half-buried: -جø¬-??sounds good...-جø¬-?-جø¬- from there a wave of surging/burbling synths and filtered white noise let loose on the whole frequency range, leaving little in the way of... you know... -جø¬-??musical sense-جø¬-?-جø¬-... there are some bike-horns, what sounds like someone dialing in an fm radio (then leaving it between stations), a jet passing overhead, a guitar-amp feeding back while someone -جø¬-??snaps-جø¬-?-جø¬- into a microphone, etc... sounds are panned hard left/right for entire sides at a time. some backwards speaking kind of rises to the top, then its back to -جø¬-??normal-جø¬-?-جø¬-... and thats just the first side...from here on out, any time someone plays me a record like the shaggs or y. bhekhirst, reveling in the fact that it got made in the first place, im going to play them this, as its so much better on an example. im just completely dumbfounded that the sentient folks over at varese international went the distance... kudos!note: their are a bunch of drop-outs on the b-side that are, (un)surprisingly, part of the sonic stew, not any weird mastering issues on p.c.s part (wouldnt be the first time hes fallen asleep at the console though! that lout...) - Creel Pone.

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.
