Performer Notes
  • Mercury Rev: Jonathan Donahue (vocals, guitar, guitorgan, bowed saw, sound effects); Dave Fridmann (vocals, piano, Hammond B-3, bass); Grasshopper (guitar, clarinet, Tettix Wave Accumulator); Suzanne Thorpe (flute, French horn); Jimy Chambers (Wurlitzer electric piano, drums, mojo stick).
  • Additional personnel: Carmen Quinones, Tomcat Stamos (vocals); Rachel Handman (strings); Mark Marinoff (saxophone); Matt Jordan (trumpet); Jake Congelo (piano); Chris Reilly (tablas).
  • Producers: Jonathan Donahue, Dave Fridmann, Grasshopper, Suzanne Thorpe, Jimy Chambers.
  • Engineers: Dave Fridmann, Scott Hull, Jacques Cohen.
  • One of the finest and most consistently creative rock bands around, Mercury Rev meld '60s psychedelia, indie aggression, folk/pop melodicism, and epic sonic experimentation on the order of My Bloody Valentine to achieve a singular, deliciously satisfying, and endlessly engaging hybrid. SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE finds the band in characteristically inventive form.
  • Mercury Rev can do it all, their music combining a dose of Pink Floyd's kookiness with SGT. PEPPER-esque carnival embellishment, pure confectionery pop, punk energy, and splashes of avant-garde color. SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE, the group's third album, encompasses rock & roll nirvana ("Young Man's Stride"), acid-dipped cartoon pop ("Everlasting Arm"), space-age slacker anthems ("Racing The Tide"), techno-tinged dance grooves ("Close Encounters of the 3rd Grade"), and blues that sound like music made by asylum inmates ("Peaceful Night"). This is exploratory pop music of the finest sort.
Professional Reviews
Spin (9/95, pp.111-112) - 7 - Flawed Yet Worthy - "Optimism, in music, is a tricky proposition....one must swerve past the danger zones of `jaunty' and `upful' in order to hit the right note of joy. Mercury Rev always pulls it off....[SEE YOU] often recalls such flower-power minor legends as Beacon Street Union...or indeed the legendary Love. But acid rock is one of many sources..."

Alternative Press (10/95, p.61) - "...imagine Brian Wilson at his creative zenith collaborating with Sly Stone at his narcotic popwise peak. Then multiply the results by a Dixieland jazz band on LSD led by Miles Davis. Add liberal doses of avant-f**k-off guitar blare and melodies Hank Mancini would die for were he still alive..."

Option (1-2/96, p.102) - "...a tilt-a-wirl that falls somewhere between Bevis Frond, Stereolab and '70s urban soul..."
