V/A - Vahan Multaa Paalle

"..(trans. Put a Little Dirt On Top") is a compilation on vinyl featuring exclusive tracks from bands that reside in Tampere, Finland. It was commissioned by the art exhibition Tampere 5th Triennial as a part of their exhibition catalog. Fonal only has 250 copies for sale, so it will definitely be a sought-out collectors item! The amazingly detailed LP covers are done by a fine artist from Tampere, Seela Dahlman. The LP features five artists. Motelli Skronkle is a legendary band that released three albums in the 90s and was founded by theater actors Hannu Raatikainen, Esko Varonen and the late Markku Peltola, who also acted in the Aki Kaurism_ɬ§ki movie The Man Without The Past. Veli-Petteri Rajanti had joined the band already before the first release in 1987. On this compilation, we hear the first new material from the band in over 10 years. Pekko K_ɬ§ppi is a well-known neo-folk artist in Finland and released his latest album Vuonna 86 in 2010. Ville Leinonen has released a multitude of albums, and three are on the Fonal Records catalog. On this compilation, we hear a more ambient and experimental track. Death Hawks is a bluesy, noisy rock group that put out their debut album in Finland. Theyve gone the way of Sun City Girls on this compilation with a three-part psychedelic trip. Tuusanuuskat, who released their debut album in 2011 on Fonal has made their most danceable track to date, a 9-minute dancefloor tune with experimental flavors added." - Fonal.

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.
