Title: Cyborgs Revisited
Format: LP
Label: Get Back
Country: Italy
Price: $14.00
"Simply Saucer was Canadas first proto-punk band. Emerging in 1974 from the industrial city of Hamilton, Ontario, the quartet created a distinct and original sound that was decidedly out of step with the musical climate of the day...edgy rock & roll that was a combination of early 70s punk pre-cursors (Velvet Underground, Stooges, Modern Lovers), krautrock (ala Can, Neu, early Kraftwerk) and UK prog/psyche (Hawkind, Pink Fairies, Syd Barrett)...Although the only material released while the band existed was a two-song 45 rpm single, a 1974 recording session and a 1975 live set were collected together posthumously and released...in late 1989...Now long out of print, this newly re-mastered, expanded reissue is the first legitimate re-release of this material in more than a decade. Hailed as the best Canadian album of all time." -Get Back.

Title: Cyborgs Revisited
Format: Double LP
Label: In The Red
Country: USA
Price: $27.00
"Simply Saucers Cyborgs Revisited is an explosive time capsule from one of the great Canadian cult rock n roll groups. Formed in Hamilton, Ontario, these sci-fried proto-punks created a sound fusing Hawkwind, The Kinks, Pink Fairies, Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd, and the omnipresent Velvet Underground. Originally recorded from 1974-1975, the album became a critically revered classic when it was finally unearthed in 1989 by Mole Records. Now, In The Red is proud to release the definitive, remastered double album edition featuring new liner notes by band biographer Jesse Locke, unseen images, and the complete live recordings available as a second album for the first time ever. As a means to escape his oppressive experiences while living in a practice space surrounded by biker gangs, singer and fretboard-shredding guitarist Edgar Breau wrote a set of songs filled with dystopian visions of the future, conjuring metalloid thugs, Eva Brauns cyanide love affair, and dancing the mutation. With nimble-fingered bassist Kevin Christoff, clatterwauling drummer Neil DeMerchant, and electronic cosmonaut John Ping Romany LaPlante (Breaus foster brother and answer to Pere Ubus Allen Ravenstine), his lyrics were launched into a sonic supernova. Their first recording session took place in the basement of brothers Bob and future superstar producer Daniel Lanois and was initially intended as a demo. Naturally, interest was non-existent for the sneering six-song set. Its shocking how anyone could have overlooked Bullet Proof Nothing, an undeniably catchy VU-swiping anthem for the used, abused, and confused. Shelving these sessions, the band ascended into the future with 15-year-old drummer Tony Cutaia. This set off a series of gigs before the band touched down on the roof of a local shopping center! Following their 2006 reformation, Simply Saucer continue to tour and perform to ecstatic fans while being celebrated with a belated wave of releases, reissues, and documentation, including a rarities compilation, Jesse Lockes book Heavy Metalloid Music: The Story of Simply Saucer (Eternal Cavalier Press), and an upcoming 7-inch. At long lost and at the top of this towering stack, In The Reds expanded reissue of Cyborgs Revisited gives the Canadian cult classic the deluxe treatment it so greatly deserves." - In The Red.

Title: Reckless Agitation
Format: 7"
Label: Logan Hardware
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"By now the deep heads and even a few squares are hip to the psychedelic proto-punk fury that is Simply Saucer. Formed in the basement of Hamilton, Ontario in the mid-70s, they dragged platters by the Stooges, Velvets, Syds Floyd, and the Pink Fairies to a bewildered studio crew (including a young Daniel Lanois) and laid down the tracks that would compromise their now legendary LP Cyborgs Revisited (along with some slaying live tracks). The Saucer went through a few line-up changes over the years (theyre still active!) and released some further singles, always with the core of genius songwriter Edgar Breau and bass god Kevin Christoff. Numerous demos were cut throughout their career, and rabid fans captured more blazing live shows on tape, so we are proud to present four completely unheard vintage 1975-1977 Simply Saucer compositions on one fancy-packaged 45 EP. Ranging from snarling VU-inspired pre-punk to poppy ditties that would make Kevin Ayers blush, these previously unreleased tracks come housed in a possibly groundbreaking package--bolted onto a true Saucer. Yes, with washer and 45 adapter added to the construction, sticker, and a printed-on frisbee, we have constructed a truly unique package here that, well... actually flies!" -Logan Hardware.

"Taking a page from Ugly Pops fantastic fantasy 45 for Hackamore Bricks Oh!

A-Side is the classic track from the Cyborgs Revisited LP, B-Side is the live version available on vinyl for the first time." - Mammoth Cave.

Title: Cyborgs Revisited
Format: CD
Label: Sonic Unyon
Country: Canada
Price: $14.00
"Simply Saucer was Canadas first proto-punk band. Emerging in 1974 from the industrial city of Hamilton, Ontario, the quartet created a distinct and original sound that was decidedly out of step with the musical climate of the day. While most local acts emulated the popular sounds of the era, this quartet played edgy rock & roll that was a combination of early 70s punk pre-cursors (Velvet Underground, Stooges, Modern Lovers), krautrock (ala Can, Neu, early Kraftwerk) and UK prog/psyche (Hawkwind, Pink Fairies, Syd Barrett, both with and without Pink Floyd). Although the only material released while the band existed was a two-song 45 rpm single, a 1974 recording session and a 1975 live set were collected together posthumously and released under the moniker Cyborgs Revisited on the Hamilton label Mole Sound Recording in late 1989. Originally available only as a limited run LP, the album was later released on CD though Fistpuppet. Now long out of print, this newly re-mastered, expanded reissue is the first legitimate re-release of this material in more than a decade. It is also the first time the 1978 Shes A Dog single has been made available on compact disc."- Sonic Unyon
