"Subtitled: Glam, Proto Punk, And Bubblegum: European Picture Sleeves 1970-1976. "In these three-hundred-eighty-four pages of garish, pop and glam rock, European picture sleeve glory, Wired Up! celebrates the sights and sounds of the zeitgeist aberration that was early '70s glitter rock records -- where the flash, shock and outrageousness of the picture sleeve oftentimes proved just as important as the explosive sounds within. As a renaissance of style, a riot of color and the raving rocking rebirth of the three-minute-pop single, Wired Up! is not only an early clue to the new direction rock and roll was taking in the 1970's, but the final statement on a disposable era's lasting appeal." Preface by Robin Wills; includes interviews with Gordon Nicol (Iron Virgin), Alan Gordon (Hector), Chris Townson (The Jook), Jesse Hector (The Hammersmith Gorillas), Ramma Damma, Brett Smiley and Sal Maida (Milk N' Cookies). Hardcover, full-color, 9"x9", unbelievable." - Wired Up Media

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.
