Artist: FLYING SAUCER ATTACK
Title: In Search Of Spaces
Format: Double LP
Label: VHF
Country: USA
Price: $29.00
"First ever reissue and first time on vinyl for this unique Flying Saucer Attack live album, expanded with additional material and a new side four mix from Jim ORourke. Produced in collaboration with Dave Pearce / FSA and Bruce Russell (compiler of the original CD release for his Corpus Hermeticum label), featuring new artwork by Bruce Russell as well. While rightly known for the folk-influenced songs and spacey instrumentals of their proper albums, the briefly active live version of FSA unexpectedly delivered a blistering wave of electric sound. Recorded at various shows in 1994, In Search Of Spaces heaves with long passages of feedback guitar racket, broken up by sections of surging rock music. The live band focused almost exclusively on visceral, trebly guitar noise-- which, while always a key element in their sound, was greeted by audiences with total mystification (and often disapproval). Following a few brief attempts to settle a lineup and play songs from their records, Dave Pearce / FSA abandoned live performance altogether, leaving behind this album (and the barely available P. A. Blues CDR) as the sole document of his in-person delivery. Originally compiled and released in 1996, this reissue adds several minutes of music back to the original program that had been edited out by FSA for being too rock. For side four, Jim ORourke revisited the original 1994 live tapes and has made a spooky and brooding new mix of music exclusive to this release." - VHF.

Title: P.A. Blues
Format: CDR
Label: VHF
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Personal selection of live material compiled by Dave Pearce for "casual" release. The centerpiece is "P.A. Blues," a massive collage of bracing, full-on sound recorded at various 1994 shows. Moving through various moods and grooves, the piece is similar to the material on the out of print In Search Of Spaces/Live CD released a few years back on Hermes Corp, tho theres no overlap in the contet between the two CDs. Also included: the 1995 groups take on the oft-covered "She Moved Through The Fair, a subdued performance of "The Season Is Ours," and an uncirculated (and assaultive) 1994 instrumental rehearsal, which I believe pre-dates FSAs first live performance. In mini-gatefold. 4 tracks, 66 mins" - VHF.

"First-ever US vinyl of the debut album by Bristols Flying Saucer Attack, and first vinyl edition of any kind since 1993! This edition of the album is produced in full collaboration with FSA/Dave Pearce. Aka Rural Psychedelia, Flying Saucer Attacks first album was released in 1993 after a couple of instantly sold-out singles. Released at the height of the shoegaze boom, the album is a blend of memorable fuzzed out songs and far-out instrumental doodles, sidestepping the rock bombast of many contemporaries in favor of a home-made aesthetic. FSAs blend of razor-edged static, softly sung melody, and echoing atmospherics builds a dour beauty that sustains itself over the course of the entire program. My Dreaming Hill, Wish, and The Season Is Ours are couched in fuzz and whispery reverb, but are beautiful and accessible tunes, able to stand on their own in any context. Popol Vuh 1 and Popol Vuh 2 are straight up tributes to the now much better known German masters, steeped in the hushed atmosphere of the best Vuh records (if not exactly the sound)." - VHF.
