David Pearce re-materialized last year with the beautiful Instrumentals 2015 and attracted all manner of attention - as one does when one emerges from self-imposed exile holding a glittering prize. Without warning he became part of the musical landscape once again, heralding a new phase of the project he initiated in the early 1990s. It was in the year of '92 that FSA were ﬁrst sighted, high over the western skies of Bristol, UK. Flying Saucer Attack originally manifested in the form of 7" singles, shot through with noise sheets and touches of eastern-tuned psychedelics, hooded with shoegaze-inspired somnambulance.
In '95, the nebulae aligned, the red giants went supernova and the black holes issued forth onto the Drag City label: the second FSA album, Further, delivered deeper-focus textures with an increased acoustic presence that traded in new ways on the "rural psychedelia" label, sharing an encompassing access of space in doing so. Pearce's excoriating feedback serving as a dream weapon designed to cleanse the grit from the mind's eye. The melodies beyond the noise reassure us that it's okay to take this route away from the superhighway and explore paths trodden only by a few, Pearce and collaborators included. Later in that same year, Chorus emerged - an icy blast of electric-band FSA that in no way revisited the wild-eyed pastures of the ﬁrst album, but instead found reﬁnements and experimented in new directions.
Further has been out of print on vinyl for the past decade. Chorus has been unavailable on LP since the golden days of CD (1998)! Re-acquaint yourselves with these exemplary classics on March 18th, or preorderthem now!
