Flying Saucer Attack

Distance (LP)

Label: VHF Records

Format: LP

Genre: Experimental

In stock


Originally released on VHF as a CD at the end of 1994, this was the second Flying Saucer Attack album, compiling 5 tracks from impossible to get 7" with 20 mins of previously unreleased (and good) material.
Similar in blend to the band’s first LP (also newly issued in the USA on deluxe vinyl), the songs hang together as a collection that improves on the individual singles. The two proper singles that make up half of Distance - Soaring High b/w Standing Stone and Crystal Shade b/w Distance were instant collectables upon their release, so Distance was compiled to make the songs permanently available.
Soaring High and Crystal Shade are jagged bits of fuzzed-out pop genius; tracks like the mutant concrete “techno” of Distance and the two lengthy glissando workouts on Oceans and Oceans II offset the more conventional tunes, upping the overall impact when enjoyed as an LP.
