Simply Saucer

Ages 21+
Simply Saucer live at Hi-Dive in Denver, CO.


Emerging from the industrial city of Hamilton, Ontario in the 1970s, Simply Saucer created a distinct, original sound that was decidedly out of step with the current musical climate. The band played edgy rock & roll that was a combination of early punk pre-cursors (Velvets, Stooges, Modern Lovers), krautrock (Can, Neu, early Kraftwerk), and U.K. prog/psych (Hawkwind, Pink Fairies, Syd Barrett - both with and without Pink Floyd). The unusual history of the band and its penchant for resonating with younger audiences and bands (Ty Segall released a 7” covering their song, "Bullet Proof Nothing") kept the flame alive, inspiring a loyal, worldwide cult following.

The deluxe double LP reissue of the band’s classic album, Cyborgs Revisted, was released in 2018 by In The Red Recordings and is now on its second repressing. In 2019, the band received rave reviews for its tour through the US midwest/south including a standout performance at Gonerfest in Memphis. On their Cyborgs Deluxe June 2020 tour, Simply Saucer will be playing the Cyborgs Revisited album in its entirety plus some of its newest material. This touring lineup of the band includes Cleveland rock legend, Craig Bell, of Mirrors and X_X. The band is top live form and not to be missed by fans of psychedelic garage rock & punk.

"Here's a band that could splice the DNA of Syd Barrett and Soft Machine with Iggy Pop and the Velvet Underground, that could bridge post-psychedelic mind-altering electronics with a buzzed proto-punk urgency: the ultimate garage band.” - Pitchfork

“Simply Saucer are a divine mix of early Pink Floyd (with Syd Barrett still mercifully intact) and The Velvet Underground (when Andy Warhol was at the helm and urging them towards the Exploding Plastic Inevitable). They are all this and more; a Suicide with a lust for life; a Silver Apples that are running with electronic juice! Sheer, ecstatic, underground bliss.” — NME

"if you’re any kind of fan of future punk with a sci-fi soul, then this one should be on your list.” - Raven Sings the Blues
