Album Notes
Ssaucer - Ssalvage
Sara Hechtman - Lead Vocal, Lyrics
Joey Maltese - Music, Backing Vocals, Lyrics
Thanks to Patrick Giles - Drum Kit on tracks 1, 3 and 4
The year was 1992. The place was New York's Greenwich Village. In October of that year, Sara Hechtman and Joey Maltese began writing songs for a band that would become known as Ssaucer. Right from the start, the boring old Pop/Rock rule book went out the window. It was decided that the priority would be honest expression through quickly recorded songs.
Guitar sounds became abrasive or experimental with tunings made up on the spur of the moment. Common household objects were often employed to attack the guitar strings as well as the more usual picks, fingers, drum brushes, cello and bass fiddle bows. Squalls of feedback were set loose at random intervals, regardless of quietly murmured verses. A whistling tea kettle was used to provide harmony on guitar leads.
Any unusual idea was entertained during the recording sessions, no matter how strange. The album was recorded in low lighting or dim gloom, without a hint of daylight. This to lend a subliminal edge to the darkness of the lyrics.
Words were reversed at random and written into the lyric sheets as "inaudible". Instruments were treated with effects that would make them sound distant or submerged.
As the recordings progressed, Patrick Giles joined in provide the drums for LOVE-sex-TOUCH-thing, Destroyer (Creator Has Changed) and Colorless. By 1993 the album was complete. --- Now, many years later, here it is once again. Restored and remastered in all of it's ragged lo-fi glory.
Ssaucer Ssalvaged.

Well Done
The album was an interesting listen. Each song had its own unique ambient audio details. It made the album easy to listen to, because each track sounded so different from the one beforehand. The vibe I received from the album was that it was created with the idea of using experimental sounds and concepts to make a statement. The distant, sometimes muffled guitar sounds pair well with the vocals, even when they are in reverse (track 3). Overall, i enjoyed the listen. The album was recorded in 1993 but I believe it could seamlessly fit in with the modern garage, alternative, sound that seems to be rising in popularity today.


SSalvage Saves the day with their album
Wow! I loved the original and so happy to hear it redone for the 21st century!
