SIMPLY SAUCER - Reckless Agitation

"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.

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.
