TRIPLE NEGATIVE - Precious Waste In Our Wake

"Debut full-length from London-based three-piece originally hailing from New Zealand (Matthew Hyland), Germany (Anja Büchele), and Romania (Dennis Debitsev). Precious Waste In Our Wake (full title written nowhere: "The Fucking Terrible Receding Shapes, We Shed Precious Waste In Our Wake") is an endlessly beautiful, dense, and chaotic crawl through so many forms it can be difficult to ascertain what is actually at play here. Ostensibly a "rock" band carved from the same plank as previous outfits Philosophie Queen, The Mean Streaks, etc., Triple Negative have appeared in a somewhat complacent London with their wildly original blend of chaos shifting alongside the suggestion of a maelstrom of politics, spite, and humor. Bloodclaat Orange, Fatna Bent Lhoucine, The Associates, Aby Ngana Diop, Royal Trux, Brigitte Fontaine/Areski, and Babyfather are all somehow wished into the scenario, either suggestively, explicitly quoted or manifesting as some malformed degree of inspiration. Precious Waste features bloody-minded Schlagzeugspiel by Stephen Robinson(Aufgehoben) and Rohan P. Thomas (The Mean Streaks, Sigma Editions) with guest verses by Maria Callas/P.P. Pasolini, Marlene Dietrich, and actually existing urban foxes of Northeast and South London. Also contains "Destroyer", the first song written by Cameron Bain for The Mean Streaks (2000. complete lyric sheet: "Destroyer!"), followed immediately by Dr Moreau-style fusion of Herman Melville and Peter Perrett in glass-all-void "Immigrant Song". Also, bass sound of the miraculous Stylophone Beatbox, plus Casio MT 45 psychick dancehall, and three pairs of strings, not four, on the bouzouki. Following on from the quietly released Towers, Open, Fire/Looking For Business 7" towards the dying end of 2018 (PP 704EP), Precious Waste In Our Wake is a malediction forbidding mourning, a portfolio of old pathologies folded into a sleek new nervous wreck. Precious Waste In Our Wake exists as a hulking ride of audacious rhythmic passages swaying alongside the meanest of melodies suddenly swept over by flights most fragile.

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.
