The pride of Hamilton’s first wave of punk SIMPLY SAUCER mark a return to turntables with the release of their Baby Nova 12” EP on June 24 courtesy of Schizophrenic Records. Exclaim unleashed these details yesterday day via Exclaim.ca
This EP will premiere the first ever studio versions of five classic SIMPLY SAUCER songs recorded in Detroit MI at Jim Diamond’s Ghetto Recorders studio in August of 2011, and produced by Jeff Meier (Detroit Cobras and Rocket 455). The use of vintage analogue recording equipment in this session allowed the band to return to the immediacy of their own raw edgy roots in a city that had influenced the formation and early direction of the band.
“With the addition of composer/arranger/session musician and bona fide Detroit legend McKinley Jackson on keyboards on a couple of tracks SIMPLY SAUCER went further and deeper into the ‘Detroit Sound’ to the soul/funk roots that had so influenced bands like Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels, the MC5 and the Stooges,” says song writer and front man Edgar Breau of this release.
Pressing info: 800 copies including 700 multi color mix colours vinyl + 100 black vinyl w/ additional black and white fold over sleeve. All copies include 4 page booklet with lyrics, images etc.
