About this item
Mercury Rev, led by Jonathon Donohue, stunned the world with their debut album ‘Yerself Is Steam’ on Mint Films/Jungle Records in ‘91. Famed for their quirky, haunting, and unique songs, they are beyond easy categories. They built on their reputation with 2 more albums ‘Boces’ and ‘See You On The Other Side’ on Beggars Banquet plus tours of UK, Europe and USA, then in 1998 ‘Deserter’s Songs’ on V2 achieved massive ‘Album Of The Year’ critical acclaim, followed by ‘All Is Dream’ and ‘The Secret Migration’. Regular features in publications such as NME, THE GUARDIAN, THE OBSERVER, UNCUT, MOJO, etc, always refer to this landmark ‘Yerself Is Steam’ album.
Andy says: "Chasing A Bee" and "Frittering" are two of Mercury Rev's greatest ever songs, still, after all this time.
