Mercury Rev introduced themselves in 1991 with possibly the wildest and weirdest record of their whole career. Yerself Is Steam is a beautiful indie-pop record, but also a blasted-sounding suite of noisy experimentalism: everything is piled in on top of everything else, with impressively glorious results. A very welcome reissue from Jungle / Mint.

After joining and leaving the Flaming Lips after just one album (the tremendous In A Priest Driven Ambulance), Jonathan Donoghue formed one of the other best bands of the 1990s, Mercury Rev. While containing elements similar to other revolutionary music, this album is a unique psychedelic vision with an early 90s underground sound. A mind-blowing psychedelic fantasia, taking listeners through ethereal, placid calm as well as mood-altering textures of raging guitar currents. This is psychedelic music at its best, totally crazy, chaotic, freaked out and wacky!
