Flying Saucer Attack - 7"s Part 1






The first time I played an FSA 7" my eyes bulged, my mouth fell open, my eyebrow(s) raised, and an imbecilic smile spread across my face. Revolutionary. Noisy. And just fucking cool. I was an instant FSA junkie, chomping at the bit to buy any and every skronky hiccup they stamped into a puck of vinyl. I have mixed feelings about passing my FSA habit on to you. Some of the addictive effect is probably lost when one simply downloads their songs en masse from a digital archive. To compensate, I will post half of their singles now and half next round. This round you can download 1992's Soaring High/Standing Stone (VHF Records re-issue), 1993's Wish/Oceans (FSA self-released), 1994's Crystal Shade/Distance (FSA self-released), and 1994's Land Beyond The Sun/Everywhere Was Everything (Drag City Records).

I totally agree,

I have been after 'land beyond the sun' for 12 yeras (since hearing it on John Peel's show).

A classic post, many thanks.

Can't get past the "My Choice Rewards" page to download any of the new stuff :( This zshare stuff looks kinda iffy to me.

OK...takes some fast clicking through 2 links to avoid that nasty My Choice Rewards page. This was not immediately obvious to me, but success at last. :)

many thanks for your post...
FSA is/were incredible!!!!
by the way... if you like FSA it is very probably you could like my 90's band Avalonia or another band I had in 2005, The Electric Butterflies... check them out!

zshare just sucks - an endless loop of "Click here to start your download" followed by "The download link will appear in 20 seconds". Any chance of uploading to a better file service (eg Mediafire)?

same problem as Fat Reg. :-( these 7 inchers would be nice. so rare. i have pretty much all their other releases.
