I Like This: Edgar Breau

One of the great unsung Canadian bands was Simply Saucer, a proto-punk-slash-psych band from Hamilton that was around in the late 70s.  But once the band dissolved, singer and guitarist Edgar Breau sold all his electric gear and became besotted with the possibilities of acoustic music.

Simply Saucer is still active after a reunion about a decade ago but Edgar has continued to explore his acoustic muse.  Next month, he’ll release Patches of Blue on a label called Flying Inn Recordings.  Please give this a listen.

    Hey Alan. Edgar is a friend of mine and will be happy to hear you sing his praises! FYI the album is already available on the Canadian iTunes store for purchase.

    Sounds good. Reminds me of Ray Davies if he was friendly with Syd Barrett. No — sounds like Edgar Breau!
