Vinyl LP pressing. Re-reissue of Cranes über rare debut album. The album includes an extra unheard track from the period called "New Liberty." Fuse was recorded in Portsmouth, their home town by siblings Alison and Jim Shaw. It originally appeared as a cassette album in 1986 on the Bite Back! Label. With an initial run of only 200 copies, over the years this album, with it's distinctive purple cover has been highly sought after amongst fans, often exchanging hands for more than £100. Fuse showcases a sparser, darker and more industrial, post punk sound. From the hypnotic allure and rhythmic intensity of the title track to the ferocious and challenging beats of "Wrench," the songs are just as mesmerizing as Cranes' later, critically acclaimed releases. Recorded in a garage on a four-track porta-studio, the band spent many months experimenting and became obsessed with the recording process. Jim Shaw used a very early sampling pedal to create the drum sounds, which were all individually triggered.
