Part of a trio of reissues. DIY space rock outfit Flying Saucer Attack were part of an experimental ‘90s Bristol scene (see also: Movietone; Crescent; Third Eye Foundation). The group took shoegaze dynamics to their extremes, with whispered vocals submerged leagues under washes of guitar noise. Following their self-titled debut album, 1994’s odds and ends compilation Distance was their first release for Domino. Of these tracks, ‘November Mist’ and ‘Oceans 2’ were unreleased at the time, the rest taken from their first three 7” singles. Distance is a remarkably cohesive mix of experimental rock (‘Soaring High’), drifting instrumentals (‘Instrumental Wish’) and rural psych folk (‘November Mist’). There is immense beauty here, both obscured and enhanced by the defiantly lo-fi 4-track recordings.
