Fix Me Some Mercury (Rev)

Whilst lazying around this morning, my son started playing music on my wife’s iPhone. He’s been playing Iggy Pop’s “The Passenger” rather a lot lately, but this time he led with a Mercury Rev track from 2004’s “The Secret Migration”. I’ve got to say that I was pretty disappointed with that album; far too much of the flowery white horses in the forests bollocks rather than the wondrous magicalness of “Deserter’s Songs”, or even the uneven “All Is Dream”.

Rev It Up

But this track was “In The Wilderness”, and it’s a rollicking stomper with no mention of fairy princesses. An absolute stormer; I’d completely forgotten about it and hearing the song again was a rather pleasant suprise on such a hungover day. It might get this album back on my iPhone for a bit of a reassessment…
