Saucer Personnel...

  • 01: Edgar Breau:
    Founding member and primary singer/songwriter/guitarist for this lengendary band. Edgar is one of those original people who bought the VU/Nico album and went off to start a band. Die-hard family man, visionary, virtuoso, and all-around genius.
  • 02: Kevin Christoff:
    Original member and bass player. Soft-spoken, thoughtful, and genteel, Kevin is the yin to Edgar's yang. Being primary back-up vocalist and groove-digger for this band, he is the Saucer's never-faltering co-pilot. Kevin's bottom line is the bottom line. Enough said.
  • 03: Joe Csontos:
    Most recent drummer and catalyst for this incarnation of the Saucer. Old friend, fan, and some-time collaborator of the original band incarnations, Joe is the stoic, rock-steady hand of reason in the band. Never grumpy... noooooo....
  • 04: Dan Wintermans:
    Hand-picked by Joe and knighted by Edgar, Daniel provides rhythm-and-noises, ambient guitar meanderings, and theremin swells and chills. Played around a bit with the piano and synths. ..does some of the web stuff too.
  • 05: Steve Foster:
    Also knighted and sworn to secrecy is Steve, who provides sound garage guitar licks and slick e-bow and slide effects, as well as backing up Ed on vocals. Steve's place is also where we rehearse, and he is the defacto engineer of the band [well, along with his brother Duke].

Saucer Live at Westside Theatre, April 2008

  • WestsideKC_Edgar1
    Here are some photos of the Saucer performing live at the Westside Theatre in Hamilton ON. This show was in support of the well-received and critically acclaimed new album by the band, 'Half Human, Half Live'. This performance marks the first time the new lineup played their epic 'Clearly Invisble' before an audience. These pics were taken by Edgar's companion, Fran. Thanks, Fran!

Saucer Live in the Studio, June 2007

  • Simply Saucer
    ...while we were working at Catherine North Studio [also known as 'the Church'], recording material for our new album, 'Half Human / Half Live', we decided it would be fun to set up an evening show on the stage in there and invite a bunch of people down for a live recording. Some of it indeed is included on the new CD. [thanks to Reg for sharing the photos]

Saucer in NYC, October 2007

  • Edgar and Steve
    ...a benefit show for WFMU-fm, at Southpaw in Brooklyn NY. Thanks to Oneida, Alan Vega, and Old Time Relijun for sharing the stage and being so kind, and to the staff at the club who were more than generous. The Saucer's first US show was great time for us, and we are happy to support independent radio! Apparently the station has a recording of the show, so bug them for it...

Saucer Studio Sessions, May 2007

  • Joe and somebody's forefather
    We had three days in the studio to get started on the framework of Saucer's new album. Coincidentally, the sessions took place over the first long weekend since the weather got nice. ..ugh. Thankfully, and perhaps significantly, Dan-O and Duke at the studio had just had a beer fridge installed in the kitchen downstairs. Not that we noticed, of course... We got quite a bit of work done.

Saucer in Toronto, April 2007

  • Edgar
    Simply Saucer's first show outside of Hamilton in 30 years took place over two nights in Toronto. Ciao Edie's is a very cool place with a loungey vibe and and a trippy atmosphere. DanZen provided the tech-psych-o-delic lightshow. The night was a lot of fun, and it was Steve's first gig with us. ...oh, and it was Friday the 13th. [thanks to DanZen for sharing the photos]

Gary Pig Gold's Archives

  • Pigpaper3front
    Gary's association with Simply Saucer dates back to the mid-1970s, when, as a fanzine publisher / promoter / general scenester in the Toronto area, he began this ongoing collection of Simply Saucer archive materials. His links to all known Saucer-related web materials are also available elsewhere on this site. ..thanks, Gary! ...more to come...
