Mercury Rev Biography

Not so much a band as a sweet odyssey to the center of the heart, the often chaotic MERCURY REV formed in Buffalo in the late 1980's. Consistently solar-powered by Jonathan Donahue (vocalist/acoustic guitar), Grasshopper (moth-light guitars, etc.), Jeff Mercel (drums/piano) with Dave Fridmann (bass explore, telescope, knob twiddler), they have been hard at work recording a new album. On their latest recordings for the upcoming THE SECRET MIGRATION, they were also joined by fellow upstate New Yorker Carlos Anthony Molina (low frequency vibrations, ivory tickling).

have you ever seen 3rd season episode 15 about miss kitty devine.she hates fresh cut flowers from jethro. it is so funny, there has never been a funnier show than the beverly hillbillies. it is as if kitty devine jumps out of a tree to sink her talons into jed,dumping on jethro. later, jed wants to discuss with jethro finding a good heart for marriage during a cereal break when jethro offers jed an apple. ellie mae clampett is the finest female to screen tv in all time. what is even funnier, is when ever jed tells jethro to take hold of a out of control woman, whether granny or ellie, it happens. tragically, max baer wants to put a gambling casino near my home town. he's not too smart in life or screen. -s comments?
