Craig will once again accompany psychedelic Canadians Simply Saucer on bass on an upcoming autumn tour, including a headlining spot at Goner Fest on September 26. (TBA is most likely a Bloomington, IN date—update soon.)
We are also proud to offer the Simply Saucer T-shirts for sale again, both at shows and on our online store! Sizes S-2XL. Designed by Claudia Bell.
The first full-length vinyl LP of Saucers material on Rerun Records out of St. Louis, MO, is here!! Third Saucer from The Sun features recordings from Saucers’ heyday 1978–1980; some of these were previously released on the What We Did (GTA053) CD in 2002. It also includes material discovered after that release and a song from Second Saucer, an EP released as a Gustav Records CD in 2011. It features members Craig Bell (Mirrors, Rocket From The Tombs), Mark Mulcahy (Miracle Legion), Seth Tiven (Dumptruck), Katherine Cormack, Malcolm Marsden, & Malcolm Doak. The cover is a watercolor/ink mural by our friend S.Jane Mills. You can find more of Jane’s work at www.sjanemills.com.
We have original 1979 Saucers singles “What We Do/I Didn’t Get It/Muckraker” available for sale at our appearances with either Craig Bell & Band or X_____X. These records come with the original picture sleeve and have been stored in a closet in New Haven, CT since 1980.
I have added some electronic/experimental pieces recorded down in BelGrotto (as craigbell) over the past couple of years, as well as a complete set by Saucers from Ron’s Place in 1980 and all the various Rhythm Methodists recordings to date.
Thanks to Tyler Watkins at Postal Recording for the great mastering job on the Rhythm Methodists collection Time Permitting (1988-2017) featuring Kerry J. Miller, Claude Bell, Joe Guidone, Phil Kitchel, Holly Butler, Nevard Tellalian, Malcolm W. Doak, (and yours truly) with able assistance along the way by Ron Sutfin, Dave Norman, Mark Cutzinger, and Noah Butler.
