DJ Echo: Retox Diaries: Mercury Rev: June 29, 2015

Playing tracks by

Mercury Rev.

Mercury Rev: after a week or so of delightful distraction, DJ Echo returns for a final week (well, perhaps!) of morning shows before setting off on his much-anticipated scientific experiement to see if it is actually possible to live in Christchurch during July. Evidence will be gathered and reported back to the good people of Karamea and all our internet listeners in August. In the meantime, this morning's hour-long special focuses on the music of Mercury Rev, a somewhat (ahem) mercurial and maverick outfit from upstate New York. Spanning their 25 year career and featuring Neil Young and Burt Bacharach covers among the original Rev tracks, this is one worth checking out whether you know the band or not.
