2009? Not a fan…

Posted in Uncategorized by Andrew Earles on September 20, 2009

But maybe you’re a fan of the Strapping Fieldhands, or more specifically, of their 1993 debut, Discus. No? Get it together, people. I’m not asking.

Luckily, this has been made easy by Shangri-La Projects’ (very) recent reissue of said album. It’s something I would post about even if it didn’t feature liner notes concluding with “Andrew Earles, May 2009″….and fill only two panels! 

Speaking of the early-90′s….AGAIN.;..how about a taste of brilliance that, like the Fieldhands, predicted what’s hot today (a different “hot”)….

The genius of Mercury Rev circa 1991 – 1993:

Mercury Rev “Meth of a Rockettes Kick” (1993) 

Mercury Rev “Downs Are Feminine Balloons”

Mercury Rev “Frittering” (1991, Peel Session…”Lego My Ego”)

Mercury Rev – “Coney Island Cyclone” (ditto)

…and I’m proud to provide uninitiated readers with the greatest pop song of the 90′s….

Mercury Rev – “Car Wash Hair” (1991)

    Yerself Is Steam and Boces were two classics from the early nineties that never got their due. Also Lego My Ego of which countless cd singles were spun off from.
