"Literally taking off where the acclaimed Precious Waste in our Wake LP (PP 041LP, 2019) finished off, London based outfit Triple Negative return with another exemplary amplified jigsaw puzzle. The playback of this reality is garnished with humor, bedlam, beauty, and a robust fear of the predictable. As payback for your acknowledgment our international line-up delivers a disparate mix of genres and histographies rendered into a devious dish of rhythm, song, balladry, and nerve. This is Not This Heat. A.Kostis/Kostas Bezos's "Stin Ypoga" (1930) is the template for "Bad Emotional Investments" whilst the haunting "Fine Cargo Lacquer" takes flight from the morbidly on point novel The Death Ship by B. Traven (1926). God Bless the Death Drive could be construed as a compass to navigate the wayward wonder we inhabit or it can just be enjoyed. This second full-length steers into scathed realms of everyday junk and poignant punk, all pressed down on the lowest quality ethylene and chlorine. Triple Negative return with another stamped digest of hope as joke, noise and song, rollicking rhythm and seasick soul. High gloss sleeve with printed comic book inner sleeve; Edition of 500."
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.
