Simply Saucer - Cyborgs Revisited
Thanks to that Ty Segall single that covered Simply Saucer a couple weeks back we've been revisiting this classic pretty hard over the past couple of days. The Canadian band falls into a great crevice between the sonic experimentation begun by
the Beefheart overhang of the 60's, the Theremin invocations of Lothar and the Hand People or even United State of America and the sci-fi power pop of The Twinkeyz. Round these parts that's pretty comfortable company to be in. The record is driving and weird, fractured and intense and at times pretty damn catchy; in short all the things that most bands wished they were in '74 but fell a bit short of. The band didn't really release a lot of material at the time but these recordings were scavenged from half finished recordings sessions and finally released after the demise of Simply Saucer. In 2007 the band reunited for a record on Sonic Unyon. This one is definitely essential.
