aka MERCURY REV
‘PARALYSED MIND OF THE ARCHANGEL VOID’
Harmony Rockets is a Mercury Rev side project, here playing one long exploration! Unavailable for many years; limited quantities are now available.
'Harmony Rockets’ played at the UK ATP’s Nightmare Before Christmas festival.
A classic experimental album of epic proportions, "Paralyzed Mind of the Archangel Void" consists of ONE track, which runs to 41:40 minutes, recorded live at the Rhinecliff Hotel in upstate New York in 1995.
It was initially released in 1995 as a limited edition of 500 copies, then a limited re-release on CD in October 1997 on Big Cat. On the album, the band freed themselves from the constraints of the standard rock form and produced a work that reflects their interest in avant-garde and improvised music. Starts out sweetly enough, then builds and builds, until finally arriving at a sublime conclusion.
Said Jonathan: "Basically, what it is, is most of Mercury Rev, that you see up there [stage], we’re trying to kill a Friday night in the mountains, got really wasted and wandered down to a local Civil War bar. Yeah, just made up on the spot."
It got good press, too: "...PARALYZED MIND is nocturnal trance music that never gets monotonous, a stunning feat for a piece this long....In 2015 we'll be talking about this mercurial, revolutionary CD in the awed tones reserved for The Velvet Underground & Nico, Revolver, A Love Supreme, or Bitches Brew."--Alternative Press 1/96
The line-up for this recording: Jonathan Donahue, Grasshopper, Adam Snyder, Jason Russo, Jimy Chambers, Suzanne Thorpe, Mark Marinoff.
