Biography

From behind the pulp sci-fi name, Dave Pearce's Flying Saucer Attack enact a very English invasion, a benign takeover of the senses. The first to emerge into a haze of the 90s drone rock resurgence, FSA albums like Distance, Further and New Lands take the listener on a forlorn tour, a psychic drive that married Pearce's emotional landscapes with the hinterlands of his native West ...

"Home taping is reinventing music" goes the blurb on the side of the CD. So, it's clearly pre-MP3 era then.
If bands like the Future Sound of London create industrial ambient soundscapes then Flying Saucer Attack create rural ones. This isn't to say that there are farm noises floating over the distorted guitars and hazy keyboards but rather a less industrial feel overall. The music creeps up at you by surprise. It is as much broody and sinister as it is relaxed and floaty.
The gentle side of the music owes its thanks to the acoustic guitar and the soothing vocals. This blend of gentle folk influenced sounds mixed over a more harsh up-tempo backdrop make for a very exciting and challenging listen.
Brian Eno once said that ambient music should be "as listenable as it is ignorable." This sums up this album excellently. It makes excellent background music if needed, though I prefer to listen to it whilst working rather than when hosting a dinner party say.
Think Future Sound of London minus the large sample banks.
Think Brian Eno (circa Spinner) with more psychadelia and much more sinister intent.
Think Pink Floyd with less production and more darkly lit bedsits.
Think Spiritualized without the budget nor the orchestral parts.
If you are a fan of ambient music this CD will surely not disappoint.

My girlfriend and I were sorting through a load of old CD's to sell on Ebay. In particular ahe had a box of albums that she no longer wanted. Before listing them I thought I'd have a root through. Sure enough most of them were a right load of chaff, Cast, Deep Blue Something (remember them?), Eric Clapton etc. But then I stumbled upon this CD and thought it warranted a listen before flogging it off on the cheap.
Well Ladies and Gentlemen I wasn't disappointed. In fact I've recently ordered the remainder of their collection. This CD is an absolute treat. A gem I tell you. I'm a big fan of ambient music amongst other genres. Now whilst this album isn't truly ambient in nature it is ambient-esque. It's certainly environmental music at its best. Music as a soundscape, as a reflection of its surroundings, a coming together of sounds within a harsher modernist reality. Hehe, doesn't that sound great? I should be on The Late Show I really should.
Seriously though, "Still Point" is a beautiful belnd of harsh industrial noise with gentle Celtic like vocals soaring above it. "To The Shore" evokes Eno-like imagery from Ambient 2 or 3 merged with a Future Sound of London industrial tinge. "She Is The Daylight" has a softer acoustic feel, a little like Steve Wilson's softer ones on the more recent Porcupine Tree albums.
This CD is Wonderful, it really is. Trust me you won't be disappointed.

Alot of different sounds found on this record, gentle, rough, in the middle. Something like `Spacemen 3 plays Nick Drake in a pinball machine' - I imagine... Possibly FSA at their best anyways.
