ZUSHI, NAOKI - Experement Music O.C.O.

"We are pleased to announce the release of Naoki Zushi "EXPEREMENT MUSIC O.C.O." In 1979, around the time Naoki Zushi joined Hijokaidan, he brought two demo tapes "EXPEREMENT MUSIC O.C.O." one at a time to Drugstore, an ignition point of the Kansai underground at that time. The existence of these demo tapes was mentioned in interviews with G-Modern and others, but only a limited number of people have been able to listen to them, and although Zushi himself modestly describes them as "imitations and a little originality," they contain a variety of songs that are the raw stones for the subsequent 1st to 4th albums. Also includes two takes of the original version of "For My Friends' Sleep," and intense guitar improvisation that is an important missing link considering the early Hijokaidan. We decided that there was no need for excessive embellishment, so the sleeve design is based on Zushi's handwritten notes on the master tape, which was digitized by Nakamichi Dragon with minimal noise reduction and no mastering at all, thus perfectly reproducing the master tape from that time. We are convinced that the quality of songs is incredible for a 19-year-old Zushi, who recorded it at home in a small student apartment at the time, and that it is a work of his original landscape. Cassette tape only. No digital release." - Advaita.

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.
