Simply Saucer are a legendary proto-punk band from Hamilton, Ontario. Lo-fi Garage and Krautrock influences are prevalent in their unique sound, which they very much make their own. If you’ve never heard or heard of them, check out the 1989 release Cyborgs Revisited which contains material from 1974 and some live stuff from 1975, though it sounds like it’s from another time.
This was a thoroughly enjoyable set to watch. At least 2 of the original members are playing in the current line up, featuring Edgar Breau, and I’m glad to say, it looks as if they’ve been quite active as of late. It’s cool to see these weird toons kept alive and I’d love to see them if they ever make it out of the Rust Belt.
For some further exploration, check out this recent interview with Jesse Locke (he also plays drums in the above set) who wrote a bio on the band called “Heavy Metalloid Music: The Story of Simply Saucer.
