Patches of Blue Patches of Blue

Released: 2012/Flying Inn Recordings

Edgar Breau, of legendary Canadian cult band, Simply Saucer, displays his cross-genre songwriting prowess with a stellar cast of supporting musicians on his brand new 2012 release, Patches of Blue.

Shadows of Ecstasy

Released: 2009/Anthology Recordings

I eventually put together a band to play my new material and we began gigging. The band consisted of the bass player from Simply Saucer, Kevin Christoff and some fresh new blood, a harmony vocalist by the name of Compton Roberts, a young electric guitar player with jazz leanings, Jeff Bakalar and a drummer with ties to Simply Saucer and Canadian blues legends Crowbar with King Biscuit Boy, one Paul Panchezak. I played acoustic and electric guitar on it and of course sang the songs. Eventually we ended up at the Daniel Lanois founded Grant Avenue Studios where the 11 tracks on Shadows of Ecstasy were recorded. This would be 1988 -90. This is the first time the eleven tracks have been released in a cohesive and comprehensive manner. Many have never been released before.

Simply Saucer - Half Human, Half Live

Released: 2008/Sonic Unyon

Possible influences include: Syd Barrett, Can, Faust, Sterling Morrison, The Pink Fairies

Canadian Primitive

Released: 2004/Songhammer

The CD is 180 degrees removed from Saucer. It is a folk album, albeit folk as conceived by a musical outsider. Some people have made comparisons to such UK-psych-folk figures as Syd Barrett, Richard Thompson, Nick Drake, et al. To that list you could add Tim Hardin, the late John Fahey (see American Primitive) and Mel Lyman.

Cyborgs Rivisited

Released: 2003/Sonic Union

Originally released in 1989 and compiled of material largely recorded in the 1970's, Cyborgs Revisited is a testament to a Canadian garage band that is almost as much legend as reality. A cult-classic in every sense of the word, this re-issue collects all of the original material along with demos and live cuts, all narrated by comprehensive liner notes out of respect to a forgotten Canadian indie gem.
