P-Vine

VIRGIN INSANITY - Illusion of Maintenance Man

Japanese-only CD edition of the lone album (at the time) from 1971 by this TX group - 200 copies pressed, recently reissued in very limited form on LP by Destijl. This P-Vine CD comes w/ 7 bonus tracks (from the same sessions?) released for the first time. Immaculate mini-LP jacket packaging, with booklet of liner notes (Japanese) and lyrics (English/Japanese). Heavy.-Ç -Ç -Ç -Ç Destijls description of the album: "Exact / legit repro of an unbelievably / unassumingly great / rare rec from TX, circa 71.-Ç 4 kids (one chick fatale) stoned / alone and aware of the big things. Tempted, yet devoted only to the shaft of light extending from the loin of god, on which we will all eventually sit, that slowly rises and lifts us towards the heavens... for the fan of gripped mind / dropped jaws, this is the regal beagle; austere / smart / aware vibes that slowly imply the king of American folk privates. Its connection within the deep timbre of the-Ç private / psych / folk family tree of references is hazy, but perhaps the dropped names of Arthur Lee Harper, Pete Fine, Fenner / Leland / OBrien, Timmothy, the Bachs will work for the astute customer."

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.
