THIRDORGAN - The Pornography of Despair

"Originally released in 1993 on cassette, Thirdorgan has remained one of the most elusive yet constant figures in Japan's acclaimed noise and industrial movement. Despite having worked with nearly every cult label of the '90s cassette scene, Thirdorgan has scarcely been presented on vinyl and CD, as this special set shows the awesome and challenging long form relentless feedback paths and synthesizer psycho erotic gain staging. Momentous appearances on classic labels such as Skin Crime's inimitable Self Abuse records, Harbinger Sound, and yet another on the influential "Japanese American Noise Treaty" edifice on Release Entertainment. Thirdorgan's base of synthesizer noise cemented him with a deeper connection to the European noise scene ahead of many of his peers. The emphasis on wild and insane analog synth cacophony sets him apart from the more traditional Japanese noise pallet. Painstakingly restored by Kris Lapke, the breadth of this triple-LP gives a new life to the nearly impossible to obtain original cassette on classic Pittsburgh label SSS. Included inside this deluded heavy red paper wide spine jacket is a bonus cd of unreleased master class perfection from the era that was unknown until now. Inquisitive minds may not find answers on The Pornogrpahy of Despair but receptive bodies will find painful pleasure. Red vinyl." - Hospital Productions.

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.
