YOUNG, DENNIS - Bella

"As a founding member of Liquid Liquid, the brilliantly influential and oft-sampled post-punk/funk pioneers of the early '80s, Dennis Young has been well-versed in audio experimentation for around 40 years now. From rhythmic no wave tastemaker to new age champion to experimental guitar explorer, Young's fearless pursuit of new methods and new sounds continues undiminished by trends. And so it goes with "Bella," Young's first solo album of entirely new material in more than 15 years. For "Bella" charts yet another new direction in Young's unpredictable career. This collection of instrumental pieces may surprise those familiar with Young's previous solo projects (issued by labels such as Bureau B, Athens of the North, and Staubgold, among others), but his willingness to explore timbres of all kinds should have prepared us all to expect the unexpected. If Liquid Liquid were roughly analogous to A Certain Ratio, "Bella" is closer to The Durutti Column in its guitar-based examination of textures and moods. But Young's voice, as composer and architect of sound environments, remains his own. From the occasionally harsh to the sublimely sensitive, “Bella” proves yet again that Dennis Young’s ear for intricacy and depth is as strong as ever." - Elevator Bath.



"'Bella' is a recording that happened by accident. I purchased a new guitar pedal back in the fall of 2018 to see how it sounded with the rest of the chain of pedals I had in place. As I started recording, to my surprise, songs started to appear, and over the next 4-6 weeks, I had enough material to produce and mix the music that was to become 'Bella.' I was also lucky to find Colin Sheffield whose label was the perfect outlet for this work. Sometimes the stars line up! As always, thanks for listening!"

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.
