iTunes Review

Every once in a while an artist or band records some music, fails to have much of an impact outside of its hometown, and disappears into obscurity, only to be rediscovered years later and hailed as geniuses by critics and fans. Such is the case with Simply Saucer, a Canadian group that emerged in 1973, released exactly one 7-inch single in 1978, and broke up the following year. Ten years later, Cyborgs Revisited hit the stores, compiling unreleased demo tracks (produced by the Lanois brothers) and a live concert recording. A bizarre but likeable mix of Stooges-esque proto-punk, futuristic electronic effects work, and songwriting that takes cues from The Velvet Underground and Pink Floyd, it was embraced by a wide-ranging audience that had never previously heard of the band. Its fanbase grew more with a 2003 re-release, inspiring Simply Saucer to re-form, play shows, and record a proper studio album (2008's Half Human/Half Live). An endearing mix of garage rock, weirdo pop, and psychedelic noise, this remains the band's signature work (especially the first half). Don't miss "Electro Rock," "Here Come the Cyborgs Pt. 2," and "Mole Machine."
