Heavy Metalloid Music: The Story of Simply Saucer
Part oral history and part zine-style chronicle, this is the authorized biography of Simply Saucer, the cult psych/proto-punk band formed in Hamilton, Ontario in 1973.
Their live shows blew minds and their work ethic was unmatched but after ten years of misadventures Simply Saucer were swallowed by a black hole of drugs, crime, death, and supernatural rituals. Decades later, the electro-rockers have slowly found their way back to earth. Their posthumous collection, Cyborgs Revisited, released fifteen years after it was recorded, is now celebrated as one of the greatest Canadian albums of all time.
With extensive interviews, rare photos, and an exclusive compilation Heavy Metalloid Music shares the definitive story of these legendary Steeltown psychedelic survivors.
