Remastered CD edition of Tazartes, Ghedalia Tazartes 1987 fourth LP. Now available as an expanded individual CD, this edition was previously only available as part of a CD containing both Tazartes and Diasporas, Tazartes 1979 debut album, which is also now available in an expanded CD edition (TES 088CD). Immersive, transporting, and deeply arresting music from the revered autodidact and audio oddity. If youve never encountered Tazartes before, this is an excellent place to start, welcoming you to a unique world of exotic, electro, and acoustic sounds, composed according to a genuinely far-reaching and individual agenda. In addition to the entire original release of Tazartes, this CD also includes the first CD release of Whatever Works Singing Wild My Rock Ghedalia," recorded in Paris in the early 80s and originally issued as side B of Granny Awards (ALGA 036LP). Spread over five tracks, the piece features a comedic, exuberant vocal set to crackly 78 backing on "Whatever," turns blind corners into ethno-noise trance-outs on "Singing," delivers hyper-rhythmic experiments on "Wild," and closes with a jarring hardcore punk-out in "My Rock Ghedalia." The freedom of expression and taste for exotic, arabesque tonalities is a mighty revelation." - Alga Marghen.
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.
