Flying Saucer Attack: Chorus 12"

Drag City Records


It was in the year of ’92 that they were first sighted, high over the western skies of Bristol, UK. Flying Saucer Attack originally manifested in the form of 7" singles, shot through with noise sheets and touches of eastern-tuned psychedelics, hooded with shoegaze-inspired somnambulance. For we Americans, it was exciting times, especially if we might lay hands on imported copies of the fresh, raw delights from abroad. In 1993, the first Flying Saucer Attack LP hit, and hard. Dubbed by some as “Rural Psychedelia”, the eponymous album exploded the sound of the singles into a full-length trip. This set the bar for FSA impossibly high, but in the following year, a collection of singles sides called Distance provided a companionable listen — and still without a personal appearance in support, the audience for Flying Saucer Attack continued to expand. Further has been out of print on vinyl for the past decade. Chorus has been unavailable on LP since the golden days of CD (1998)! The ’90s trajectory of Flying Saucer Attack was half over. The waning years of the decadewould bring New Lands and Mirror...stay tuned.
