Paul St.John --Flying Saucers Have Landed/Spaceship Lover --PYE 7N. 45190 (1972 UK)

Laurie Marshall

In 1972 Laurice, under the pseudonym of Paul St. John, recorded and released Flying Saucers Have Landed/ Spaceship Lover. In my opinion those are two wonderfully produced slabs of late Psych mixed in with some Bolan and Donovan. A good description would be Erik Von Daniken in velvet Loons.
"That's exactly what it was! I thought the books were wonderful and they inspired me to write those songs. Both Flying Saucers Have Landed and Spaceship Lover were based on Erik Von Daniken. I later met Erik Von Daniken. He came to speak at Toronto University when I was in Toronto - and I was in the front row. I, of course, gave him a copy of Flying Saucers, and he was quite thrilled about it."
Although amply deserved, success was elusive as the single barely got a release...
"I was really upset because I worked really hard on that record and it wasn't taken seriously by the record company. They didn't want to promote British singers...When Flying Saucers Have Landed was released, I was so pissed off with the BBC that I went demonstrating one day with a sandwich board outside the BBC. I walked up and down all day with a sign that said "BBC unfair to British recording artists".



Lyrics to:- Flying Saucers have landed -- Paul St John

Cast your mind back ten thousand years, the world was dark and cold
They came from out of the skies they came; they came from out of the clouds
The people looked up and they saw them there, the strangers from beyond
They spoke with voices deep and strong like thunder loud and low

Flying saucers have landed
Flying saucers have landed
Flying saucers have landed
All over the world

Flying saucers have landed
That's the way that they've landed
Flying saucers have landed
All over the world

The chariots of the gods came down they filled the world with fear
Strange how they used the fire machines, that came from a distant sphere
They walked the land and they crossed the sea, and the bible tells us more
They had the form of man, just breath; from Ezekiel the world was born

Flying saucers have landed
Flying saucers have landed
Flying saucers have landed
All over the world

Flying saucers have landed
That's the way that they've landed
Flying saucers have landed
All over the world

They left this planet long ago, there are signs in history
They tried to save us from ourselves our future they could see
What will we find in space out there, there's so much more to learn
Perhaps there watching us right now......cos they promised to return

Flying saucers have landed
Flying saucers have landed
Flying saucers have landed
All over the world

Flying saucers have landed
That's the way that they've landed
Flying saucers have landed
All over the world

They will return.....that's what they say....to the people now
