Vinyl LP pressing. First ever US vinyl of the second album by Bristol's Flying Saucer Attack. This edition of the LP is produced in full collaboration with FSA/Dave Pearce. Originally released on VHF as a compact disc at the end of 1994, this was the second FSA album, compiling five tracks from impossible-to-get seven-inches with twenty minutes of previously unreleased (and good) material. Similar in blend to the band's first LP, the songs hang together as a collection that improves on the individual singles. The two proper singles that make up half of Distance - "Soaring High" / "Standing Stone" and "Crystal Shade" / "Distance" were instant collectables upon their release, so this album was compiled to make the songs permanently available. "Soaring High" and "Crystal Shade" are jagged bits of fuzzed-out pop genius; tracks like the mutant concrete "techno" of "Distance" and the two lengthy glissando workouts on "Oceans" and "Oceans II" offset the more conventional tunes, upping the overall impact as a whole album.
