YONKERS WITH THE BLIND SHAKE, MICHAEL - Carbohydrates Hydrocarbons
"A chance nightclub pairing of the incomparable Michael Yonkers with Minneapolis noise rockers the Blind Shake went so exceptionally well that a studio session ensued. The result is this, one of two vinyl documents that represent by far the most exciting new work that Yonkers has recorded since his international emergence. The Blind Shake rock with a sound not unlike latter-day Hammerhead (which might be a better thing than you think), with Yonkers splattering maniacal guitar shards and impassioned vocals over the top. Add the best collection of songs (with great, skewered god-damn HOOKS even!) Yonks has come up with since at least the early 70s and you have a serious contender for rock record of the year. The beautiful, hand-numbered silk-screened sleeves were designed by Zak Sally (ex-Low) and printed by Minneapolis-based screening gods, Aesthetic Apparatus. Limited edition of 400." - Neros Neptune.
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.
